A 69 year old man has launched a bid to legally make himself 20 years younger for a host of different reasons.
Emile Ratelband kick-started his legal bid to change his age on Monday, to improve both his job prospects and to improve his chances with women.
He argues that you can change your name and gender, so why not your age?
He reckons he'll get a better response on dating apps if he puts up 49 instead of 69.
Ratleband Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf that the change will prevent him being discriminated against based on his age – while also increasing his options on dating app Tinder.
“If I put on Tinder that I am 69, I will not get a response,” he said. “If I’m 49, with this face of mine, I will be in a luxurious position.”
Mr Ratelband is aiming to have his date of birth officially changed from March 11th 1949 to the same date in 1969.
