Do Tell: Do You Lie About Your Age?

Age is a funny thing. I happen to believe it's just a number, but my friends that are turning the big 3-0 are comparing it to a doomsday event. Since I still feel so young at heart, I oftentimes forget how old I am, and while I'm not at the point where I feel I have to lie about my age, many people feel more comfortable keeping their age to themselves. So ladies, do tell, when people ask you your age, do you fib or tell the truth? And if you don't tell little white lies now, do you think you will?

i am 21 years old and i look like i could pass for a high school junior, not a college junior! it's a little ridiculous. i get carded for cigarettes! rather insulting... oh well, i suppose i will really enjoy it when i'm 30 and people assume i'm 23!

I don't lie about it when asked but sometimes in RPG games I leave my info as 21. So it may seem it but I don't lie when asked.

I do especially when filling out forms on the net that ask your birthdate. I am over 18 so I am not breaking any laws but I dont want anyone knowing what year I was born. Otherwise I could care less saying how old I am. I like seeing peoples expressions when they find out.

From all the comments I've read it appears I may be the oldest one here. I'm 40 and I never lie about my age because I feel like I've earned every year!!! It also helps that I don't quite look my age. Just this weekend someone thought I was 22 years old and wanted to know if I needed assistance with college tuition!!!!LOL

People usually think I'm younger than I am, so there's not much reason to lie.

I agree with alot of people on here...Im 24 soon to be 25, and I always get pinned for 19. When I'm walking around my college campus (I'm in grad school), people assume I am a new freshman. I too also get the prom thing year after year when dress shopping in the spring. Its annoying now, but I am sure when I am older I will be thrilled. My mom is 54 and looks like shes in her early 40's.

Yeah, all the time, I can't help it, sometimes a younger age slips out so fast I don't even realize I've lied!

nope i never deliberately lied but sometimes people guess wrong and think i´m younger and i don't exactly correct them... out of all my friends i´m the youngest so i don't have a problem with people thinking i´m younger if they thought i was older now that´s another story. Oh by the way i´m 23.

Nope, never have! I'm 28 and look my age... if I lied people would think I've had such a rough life and looked too old for my age! hehe

Occasionally I forget how old I am and tell people the wrong year (this is sad - I'm only 26!), but I've never lied about it on purpose and don't imagine I ever will. I get accused of lying about it though! No one ever believes I'm as old as I am. I'm always carded for alcohol, and I got carded for an R-rated movie last year. A couple years ago I was looking at jewelry in Macy's and an employee said, "Oh, are you looking for something for prom?" It's so frustrating! I'll probably appreciate this looking younger than I am thing much more when I'm older - my mother and grandmother both look way younger than they are - but for now it's just kind of annoying.

I'm 25 and there is no need to lie. Often people think I look and sound younger.

No, I don't lie about my age. If they ask me, I truthfully say that I'm 23 years old, but a lot of people think i'm like 19 or 20. I don't necessarily correct them when they tell me that. :)
