Yes, you read right. I do it all the time. I did it when I first created a Facebook account, I did it when I wanted discounts in certain shops, I also did it to get free scholarships. It wasn’t the cliched, ‘I am 40 but I prefer calling myself 25’ lie instead I lied to make myself seem older.
I am normally considered to be a good liar, my skills have bore fruit even in the most testing of circumstances, the only time I am ever caught lying is when I lie about my age and yet I never stop trying. I wouldn’t mind being a 30 something guy or maybe even a 40+ dude as long as I am taken seriously. I am 17(you first heard it on The Embarrassment). No one takes 17 year old’s seriously, Heck even I’d think they are juvenile if I were older. Come to think of it I don’t think I’ll stop lying about my age until I’ve crossed 30. Though I often hear the term ‘mature teenagers’ I don’t really believe in it. Yea right! if such a thing ever existed. All teenagers want to do is get drunk, get laid and more often than not get depressed over non existent issues, its almost a trend nowadays. What is horrifying is that I am categorized with these prima donnas(teenagers) because of my age. Though not all are bad, I’d still like to be in a better age zone.
Till next time
