Dutch man hopes legal age change will get him more Tinder matches

Dutch man hopes legal age change will get him more Tinder matches

He went on Facebook a year ago to describe how he had made the decision one day standing in front of a mirror, not because he feared getting old but because he wanted to make the most of life for as long as possible.

A randy 69-year-old Dutch man is waging a desperate court battle to drop 20 years off his life - in order to boost his chances on Tinder.

Temporally-challenged Emile Ratelband claims he is being discriminated against for his age and says he is no different to transgender people who are legally allowed to change their sex.

"Whereas gender is something that follows you from birth to grave, and it determines almost everything - and not just in the labor market but everywhere", she said. Why not your age?

He wants to tell potential dating partners and clients that he's as young as he feels, not as old as he is.

"When I'm 69, I am limited", he said, according to The Guardian.

'If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different auto.

Ratelband adds, "When I'm on Tinder and it says I'm 69, I don't get an answer". If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different vehicle.

He noted that his niece's Apple devices showed the bar's dance floor as her current location. Her mother was identified as Hannah Punzalan Housley, according to Balitang America.

In turn, Mr Ratelband sued them, bringing the case to a court in the city of Arnhmen, in the eastern Dutch province of Gelderland.

Mr Ratelband, who is a famous motivational speaker and media personality in The Netherlands, was born on March 11 1949.

We even have the right to change our name.

Ratelband's website also says his "age focus is to turn at least 94 years old and to then leave this world healthy and with pleasure when it has become a better place for everyone". He said he'd be happy to forfeit his monthly pension of around $2,144 - a concession he estimates would save almost $470,000 over the 20 years he wants shaved off his age.

A Dutch pensioner is attempting to legally lower his age in an attempt to bolster his success in finding dates on Tinder.

He says he was racially abused as a teenager because of his appearance, and when he started an acting career, he found it easier to pursue non-white parts. "Who was that little boy back then?"

He also argues that his wish would be good for the government, as he will renounce all his pension benefits until he reaches retirement age again.

Naturally, the court is sceptical of the matter because no legal mechanism now exists allowing a person to change their birthdate. The court must decide within four weeks.
