No, no, no. I don't mean will it be a detriment to my health or will I get wrinkles from posting here! I mean, when I have my birthday in March, will it record my new age or will I be able to be 44 for another year? Does anyone know? Would you mind keeping your age for another year?

Last year it turned me 27 a full two months before I really was 27. I have no idea why.

It has happened to me too. Time passes quick enough without myLot giving it a push!

I am not sure about that. I think it might update though as I think they have our birthdates???? Well never mind. At least you will not be hiding it. I have to go to September to get older on here. I am sure I will have more wrinkles though by then with Mylot and my life in general.

I think that every year, I will post younger and younger photos of myself so no one will know. Do you think they'll buy it? Thanks, hilda!

I renewed my driving licence after 10 years. I sent the same photo I sent them ten years ago and they used it. I am well pleased. I got away with it. Yes we will buy it. Its nice to see who we are talking to sometimes on here, so you can put up a photo of years ago as I will buy it.

You get to send in your own photo for your driver's license? What?! That would be sooooo great! We get our photos taken in the DMV office with a lovely unflattering RED background. Quick headshot in which most people are totally caught unawares. Lots of dumbfounded looking photos out there. You are really Lucky! Can you send a "glamour shot" of yourself? Wearing a feather boa and diamonds?

I should have put 20, I would have felt better, lol! What's funny is, I thought of this the other day but never thought about writing a discussion about it. I'm so lame, lol! I don't want to be any older than I am, I really think they should go backwards. Take a year off, that sound better to me, and keep going, haha. I guess if I had to keep it, I would. Do I prefer to, nope.

I stared on myLot 3 years ago and I haven't up dated my age but my profile shows my right age so I believe that it automaticly up dated. So I don't think you will be 44 for another year unless your like Jack Benny who remained 39 for most of his life.

It updates automatically I was horrifieds when it told the world when I turned 31! I was planning on staying 30 forever! So in April it is going to update again to 32! I don't want to be that old! Perhaps I should cheat and change my age in the settings back to 30!!!

I hope mylot doesn't keep tract at my age I'd like to fake it for a few years. My next big BD is 70 and while that is still a few years away, I'd like it to remaine there.

It should be updated according based on the birth month if you wrote March then they will age you every March I never think much about age unless it's money related

Like others have said, myLot will update your New age on your Birthday, so others will know, but honestly turning 45 is nothing to fear, and feel old about. I will be 45 myself in just over 6 months, and most days I still feel young. myLot will not age you unless you let it. I feel this is a Great site to come to and talk about what is going on in the World, and our lives to alleviate some of the Stress in our lives as well.

Haha...I think it will record your new age, the computer sees when your birthday is, and it will change, I think..lol. I wouldn't mind keeping my age for another year, it was a good year for me..

Good thought I never thought about that before, but I would love to be the same age twice, or better than, lets repeat the same decade again. Well I've only been here for what? I think 8 months now so I haven't had my chance to relive my age yet. I'll get that chance in 4 months. Well we all know that's just NOT gonna happen right? Right. It does make sense for the computer or whatever to update it every year. It might not be updated on the exact day, but it'll finally get to it soon enough.

If you're like some of us it will do it before the time. I noticed yesterday that according to myLot I am already as old as I will be in a couple of weeks. Maybe they do that so as not to have to send a card or flowers? This way they can always say they thought the day had aleady passed!

It automatically changes your age each year. No fountain of youth here.

I think mine delayed in updating. I checked about a week after my birthday and it still had 24 listed. I went looking for an option to update it, but since MyLot isn't super user friendly in regards to finding what you need, I got frustrated and forgot about it. It's updated now though, but 3 months later, I would hope so. :)

Yes. You were a lucky one. Many people here have said their age changed early. Maybe it's cuz you look so young, right? Thanks:)

Good question. I am who I am no matter the age. I'm happy with whatever they say. I often say that I'm 27 with 30 years' experience. That's how I feel inside. Then I look at my kids, ages 25 and 30 and realize that I'm OLD.
