doesn't make any sense? Are they that insecure about themselves?

  • I've noticed it too.
    People that are underage tend to put themselves older, typically the 18-24 age range.

    People that are far older (40+) tend to put themselves 18-24 or 25-29 age group.

    • Younger people feel they won't be taken seriously so they lie about their age.

      Older people tend to become self conscious about their age, especially filled in a community that has a high population of under 35 year olds.

  • Some teen users may want to avoid the scrutiny that they may get here, so they day they are 18 or 19 instead of 14 or 15.

  • *i've seen teens do this. most likely they want their question or opinion taken more seriously

    *i've also seen people say their 99-105 years old. i've no idea why they do this. be mysterious maybe?

  • I do not think it is just insecurity. Some do not want to share their personal info.

  • I don't think it makes a difference really. People can be what age they want.

  • I've seen it a few times. However, GAG doesn't update a user's age either which i think is weird.

  • People lie because again it's a question of privacy they don't want to tell their real age but they don't understand that there is no need to lie.
