I recently went on a date with a man I met online, and halfway through, he confessed he lied about his age in his dating profile, and he’s actually 42, not 35! I already thought there was a big gap in our ages (I’m in my late 20’s), so that means we’re actually more than 10 years apart. Don’t get me wrong, he looks young for his age, and I do think he’s pretty handsome. I would never have guessed he was 42 if not for the fact that some of the stories he told me gave it away.
I had a good time with him, but now I can’t help wondering what else he’s lying about. I guess it’s not the age difference that’s bothering me. It’s that he lied about his age.
Would you continue dating this guy? I’ve been online dating for almost a year now, and I feel like so many people lie or embellish on their dating profiles. Is this something that you can just overlook?
