69-year-old wants court to make him 20 years younger
- Emile Ratelband has launched a legal bid to change his age by 20 years in order to improve his chances with women on dating applications like Tinder and help with job prospects, according to reports in Dutch media.
- "You can change your name. You can change your gender. Why not your age? Nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age," Dutch paper De Telegraaf quoted Ratelband as saying.
On Monday, he asked a court in his hometown of Arnhem, in the east of the country, for his date of birth to be changed from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969.
Lying about your age on dating websites is usually considered a bit of a faux pas. Now a 69-year-old Dutch wants the courts to make him officially 20 years younger, likening the change to identifying as transgender.
