Boyfriend lied about age?

I am 25. I have been disgusted by the thought of having a boyfriend who is younger than me. I met this great guy last November and we clicked right away. He told me he was 25 and he was gonna turn 26 in December. Once he shaved, he started to look his true age, and his tendency to pout when things don't go his way (he's 6 foot 4, and cry's like a little baby), I started to do some digging and found out he's only 21!! He lied to me for so long and was so selfish. I really love him and actually saw myself starting a family with him but he's 4 years younger than me, And I don't Know what to do

    also, how did you not figure that shit out? like you can go on facebook and literally check his age. i also have a hard time that you met/dated a guy a year ago and he kept it up for that long or you didn't notice or that he was able to keep it up for a year. this kinda sounds like you're just kinda dumb and careless.

  • Who cares about age? I'm only 20, I met my boyfriend when I was 19, he told me he was 26. It wasn't until we were already together 5 months, we were totally in love and I found out he was actually 30, he is 11 years older than me. At first I was pissed. I never wanted to date anyone younger than me or 9+ years older. He told me he was scared I would think he was too old for me to even hang out with him and from the first time he saw me he wanted to take care of me. I wasn't mad long actually, just a day. Now I think it is funny. if you truly love someone, age should not matter. As for the lie, he only wanted to be with u so he lied about his age so u would consider going out with him. But as for the immaturity, depends if u can deal with it or not. Luckily I'm mature for my age and my man is a little immature so it evens out.

  • You decide what to do. He lied about his age, it's an important thing... I don't know if he did it because he feared you wouldn't want him or if his intention was just being with you no matter what needed to be done. Well, it's your life, what do you want for your life? Make your decision based on it.

  • ""I have been disgusted by the thought of having a boyfriend who is younger than me.""

    Yeah, while I do admit I see it's problematic that he lied about his age, I however don't see how this sort of ageist thinking actually benefits you. I mean, he's just 4 years younger, and you're both adults. When you'll be 56 and 52, I don't see how that will matter.

  • Yes, it was totally wrong of him to lie to you and what's worse is he didn't confess this you found out on your own and so that indicates that he might have continued lying to you, that's not a good sign. I would suggest don't keep any contact with him.

  • Well, since you have obviously stood your ground and know that to you, having a boyfriend that is younger than you is disgusting, then you should confront him. Ask him why he lied to you and see if you can make up. You decide what to do next, but I hope this helped. Feel better!

  • I wouldn't start a family at all with him just because he lied about a significant thing. You have to think what else he will lie about. But age isn't the problem at all its just not being honest that is. Have a nice day

  • I understand that it was wrong of him to lie, but are you really shallow enough to dump a guy that you are (supposedly) already in love with, just because he is younger than you?

  • Do u wonder why he lied? Any guess? It is because he likes u very much or perhaps love u... He knew it would get out someday but he didn't wanted to loose u... Think about it... Talk to him... Ask him and have a good conversation.. Be calm and gentle if u want the truth

    If you don't mind
    It doesn't matter...

  • You need to sit down & talk with him about this. Lying isn't cool, no matter what it is. The first time, maybe. But he kept it up, & YOU had to find out for yourself. There are sometimes liars, & there are pathological liars. Find out why he did it before you find out more possible lies & string yourself along. If he gives a "reasonable" reason to lying, I would take some space, so you can breath, & if you truly love this guy, start over with him. Love shouldn't come with a silly age limit. I was in your shoes once, & I finally dated a friend who was/is a little younger than me. It wasn't all that bad, & we weren't even in love (well, I certainly wasn't lol), but you ARE- or at least say you are. Don't ruin something that important.

  • The main problem is that he lied to you about his age. A four year age gap isn't really that bad. Does it really matter if he's younger than you? You're both adults. It shouldn't matter if he's younger than you if you're both consenting adults. There's a lot of couples that have the women older than the men. It's not that big of a deal. Yes, the typical "guys are not as mature as women." But that shouldn't matter if he's actually mature enough.

  • A relationship built on lies. A guy who is immature. An age gap that you're not comfortable with. A selfish attitude. Is that really the foundation that you want to build your life on and around? I'd say you and your future kids probably deserve better. But only you truly know him. If you do decide he is the one you want, put your whole heart in it. Nothing else will matter.

  • hey I dont think its right he lied to you, but I also dont think it's fair that you dont want a boyfriend younger than you. If he was 10 years younger, then ya you can complain about that. But 4? its not so bad. If you think he's too immature for you, then break it off with him but if he seems like a great guy and someone you love, I would say age doesn't matter in this case
    so good luck :)

  • While I think his age shouldn't matter the fact he lied to you does. It would not be wrong to leave him for it. Though if you love him you might want to forgive him, just remember if you forgive him you shouldn't leave him later for it if you change your mind

    • You do know that there are lots of older guys that like younger girls too right? So a guy younger than you won't make a difference for wanting a younger girl

    • Show All
    • @SweetSourL It could also depend on the guy though some guys muture really quick. However you have to be sure that he is serious about the relationship.

    • Exactly. Totally agree
