Tinder user, 69, wants to legally change his age to 49 so he can get more dates

Age is just a number and you’re only as old as you feel, it’s been said.

Emile Ratelband agrees wholeheartedly, so that’s why the 69-year-old Dutchman is petitioning to legally change his age to 49.

Ratelband says his senior status is crimping his chance at romance on the dating app Tinder MTCH, +2.93% and interfering with his work prospects.

“We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gender. Why can’t I decide my own age?” Ratelband, a multi-tasking Dutch media personality and motivational coach, said, according to the BBC.

Even though the judge sounded skeptical of Ratelband’s longshot bid to switch his birthday from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969, the big picture problems surrounding age discrimination are no joke — and not going away.
