Why ladies lie about their age(s)

Why
do ladies lie about their age? Not all ladies lie but 70% of them do.  As a matter of fact, I regrettably jokingly told that lie to a cool dude this morning.
A friend of mine once said and I quote “ask any woman how old she
is, at first she does not say anything and when she does, she reduces it (she
rarely increases it).  Another friend said
“Girls have 3 different ages, the personal age (which is probably for RUNz), Official
age (For official reasons *winks*) and then her real age (known by her, family
and a few very close friends).

One of the
reasons why women do not tell their real age is probably they are scared of
growing old, plus, every woman likes to be told she looks younger for her age. A woman that looks younger than her age is
most likely not to lie about her age, because well, she still got it going on
physically. 
When you actually tell any lady that she looks older than her age, it hurts
her.  So they lie that they are a few
years younger, to feel young, and not have you thinking about them as being old
and not being able to “do it”
any more.
Another
reason why women lie about their ages is because they feel they have not
accomplished what they ought to have accomplished at that age. Say for instance, she is almost 30 and she
is still single, or she doesn’t have a stable job yet…she would definitely lie
about her age.



Ruth Umererwa in an interview said “when I was 15, I used to wish that 1 was older so I could do a lot of stuff
and belong, but now that 1 am 27, I wish I were much younger. The thought of 27
kills me. It makes me feel so old. That is why I lie.”

When it
comes to dating, the first thing men want to know is the girl’s age and woe to
her if she is not in her 20s. “No man would want to marry aged woman because
girls grow older quickly after they have had their first born babies,” says
Ruth Umurerwa (Guys, is this true?)
Well, I personally do not see any
reason for a woman to lie about her age. It is better you keep quiet when you
are asked than lie about it.
“Anyway, who
cares, we know women are secretive and sensitive when it comes to mentioning
their age,” says Robert. He claims to have gone to more than five ladies’
birthday parties without the girls mentioning their right age.
Edward says
that all people lie but it depends the way you package your lie. Sometimes lies
bring trouble, warns Edward.
