Why do people lie about their age on this site?

I just don't get why you would lie? Like, if I can see profile pic and can clearly tell that you aren't 20 something, why lie and say you are? if you want to trick people you shouldn't use a real photo of yourself, right?

  • I think they do it for different reasons. Some do it to creep, some do it because they want to be taken seriously, and some are hoping that others would believe their lies - even though it's painfully obvious that they don't look their age. Haha.

    As for me, some people actually don't believe that I'm 36 but I really am. I could probably list my age as 26 and I could get away with it. Hahah.

  • They just don't want to reveal every personal detail about themselves potentially. Maybe they want to catfish people. Maybe they just don't care.

  • Why people go anonymous? Like, as long as you don't put your actual face for your pic, or say your last name or where you live or anything, then nobody will ever know who you are.
