Older guys lying about their age on bumble
I guess we’re all familiar with people catfishing with super filtered pics that don’t even look like them… but has anyone experienced matching/meeting up with guys who have obviously lied about their age?
And by that I mean they state they’re younger – usually claim to be in their early-mid 30’s when they’re actually 40+ and the reason they do it is because they want to match with younger women (who they think are likely to set cut off age of 35 or smth).
I guess they’re more likely to get away with it as Asians generally look younger
Has anyone experienced this? I personally know a few friends who have and the thing is the men will admit to it because they think it’s totally not a big deal.
Just seems so bold when SG is small and we all probs have like 1-2 degrees of separation
- Met a lady before who didn’t lie about her age but appearance. Sent me a pic taken 5 years ago.
She was super slim in the pic but when I saw her in real, she was 3 times her size.
- Yup pretty common. Could be to conceal their identity as well- a friend dated a guy who claimed he was in his mid-30s, went on quite a few dates and even hooked up before finding out he was actually in his 40s, was married and had kids. She nope’d out of that situation quick.
- Yeah it’s pretty common. Have gotten messages from guys who admit that they’re way older than they claim and used an ancient photo after messaging for a while/ I asked for a video call.
