Man: Age Change Will Improve Luck on Tinder

  • Pic Shows Emile Ratelband in front of the courthouse A pensioner has begun a legal battle to be recognised as being 20 years younger than his actual age so he can go back to work and pull girls on Tinder. Emile Ratelband 69 argues that if transgender

The life coach, who specialises in "self awareness" training, said he felt discriminated against because of his advanced years, adding that while he does not need dating apps, the custom of giving his age to a prospective lover was cramping his style.

Emile Ratelband filed a lawsuit against the Netherlands government in an attempt to change the birthdate on his passport from March 11, 1949, to March 11, 1969, the Dutch publication De Telegraaf reported.

He said his doctors told him he had the body of someone more than 20 years younger than himself.

He is not building his argumentation on his self-identification alone, however.

Ratelband seems especially focused on getting his dating life back on track and says that he isn't anxious that women who see him in the flesh may be disappointed.

"I have done a check-up and what does it show?"

Mr Ratelband said: "When I'm 69, I am limited". If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different vehicle. "I can take up more work", he continued.

'When I'm on Tinder and it says I'm 69, I don't get an answer. When I'm 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.

The public prosecutor in the court asked whether the ability to change a date of birth in the law would require health inspections in the future, to allow the state to correctly judge someone's "emotional age".

According to Ratelband's claims, companies in the Netherlands are reluctant to hire people of his age as consultants.

According to British newspaper The Daily Express, the judge in Arnhem, in the eastern province of Gelderland, was sympathetic of Mr Ratelbrand's argument and even conceded that legally changing one's gender was unthinkable years ago.

Ratelband said that due to having an official age that did not reflect his emotional state he was struggling to find both work and love.

They argued that if Ratelband's age was to be reduced, what would be the status of his early years then?

'For whom did your parents care in those years? "Who was that little boy?" he was quoted as saying.
