All of my life I have been truthful about my age. Could not see the point in lying about it. Even at 60 I didn't care if people knew my age.

When I started renting rooms, it became obvious, that nobody wants to share with an old person. They are mostly looking for housemates between the ages of 20 - 40. I myself don't want to be surrounded by old people. I prefer people who are active, positive and happy. This indeed tends to be the 20 - 40 age range.

What could I do? I am 70. I don't want to live with me. Why would anyone else want to? So I looked in the mirror and decided that I could get away with saying I am 50. That's quite a long way from the truth, but many 50 year olds look older than their age. I could be one of those.

So I decided, from now on I am 20 years younger. It's supposed to be good for you to imagine yourself younger.

Do you or have you ever lied about your age and why?

Sorry, Marta, but it made me laugh! You've got a great sense of humour On the other hand, I think that you surely look younger than your real age P.S. I have never lied about my age (yet).

Marto, jestes wspaniała! Ja też nigdy nie kłamałam na temat swojego wieku. Po co? Czasami czuję się na 100lat a czsami na 15

I never thought of lying possibly because Im a plain jane..Young or old, I will always be a plain jane and those who don t like me for my age or being plain, that's their problem, not mine..hehe...I don t really care what people think of my age or my looks as long as I like me...Marta, You still look great so no need to lie to anyone, you look younger than your age, and better yet, why would you care what people think..just be you, you re unique and that s all that counts

I have to advertise for lodgers, Suzanne. You have to give your age. It's almost like dating. Nobody would apply for my rooms if they knew my age.

he,he - I've never lied about my age, which caused me some problems when I was younger  and no one would take me seriously thinking than I was too young. Also problems with the job because of youthful exterior. It has ended, of course when I was about 40-45. Many elderly people look much younger than their age (now, because the life style has changed a lot) and some have more energy and enjoy their lives better than very young people. Met a lady today - 96 !!!- who has twice as much hair as I do and still goes about on foot, does her shopping (slowly but independently) and cooks herself. Still don't lie about my age - it is nothing to be ashamed of. Besides - even if my face looks old, I can't behave like a respectable old lady. But (it galls me but it's true), recently young people give me a seat in public transportation - probably due to white hair. Maybe it is time to be old, but I don't feel it.

When old ladies give way to me, that's what worries me.

haha, that's funny marta but you know, many people like living with the elderly for the simple reason that elderly people are quietI know several people who would rent from an older person for that very reason peace and quiet....

I have never lied about my age, but people often say that I look younger. It is also nice to hear. But your idea, Marta, is very good. And you also look much younger.

"Years Are Not Important"
- so at least it always says.
It is important that you, in your heart, carry yours,
the secret of youth is just that.
Tell me now: "If this is such an important thing,
whether anyone is young or already a little old? "
When you say everything,
find out every woman knows,
in the name of everyone,
all of them, I repeat:thumbs up

these are the lyrics of one of our Ljupka Dimitrovska singers and I think they are very true. I have not lied to my age so far, but you never know about it in the future. And you Marta can pass as a 50 year old.

Age is just a number you are only as old as you feel 😉😉

No - I don't lie about my age. I'm proud to have reached it, as many people don't. I know so many that have passed away in their 40s or 50s. I found out that my father was only 59 yrs. old when he died. Mum sure outlived him! But I am told that I don't look my age & I'm older than Marta. I'll have to start saying what Tuuli says - she tells all her doggy friends that she is "very middle aged."
