Why do men lie about their age?
I recently met someone (we met online) and have gone on a couple dates. He has all the ideal qualities I'm looking for (driven, attractive, Christian, nice smile, hard working, educated, affectionate, chivalrous) however after having a friend run a background check (yes , I did go there.it's 2008) , come to find out he lied to me about his age. (I am 30) He said he was 35 and he's actually 39 years old. The age doesn't bother me , but the fact that he lied about something so irrelevant. If he lies about something small, there's no telling what else he could be keeping from me. I'm going to address what I expect in a relationship- honesty issue- to him face to face and hope he can be forthcoming. I want to know, Guys, is it common for men to lie about their age? Why? If the shoe were on the other foot, would you continue seeing a girl if you knew she lied about her age? My heart believes he's a good man, but I want to be practical and cautious too. Please help.
