Should i lie about my age?

  1. Sep 29, 2008 #1
    I'm a junior in college and just transferred to my new school. whenever i meet new people, they all seem very surprised that im a junior not a freshman. i'm getting really fed up with this! i've been thinking about lying to people from now on: tellign them that i'm actually a sophmore

    I really don't see the point in lying about your age or year in school. People are generally just curious and their surprise is a natural reaction as transfer students are typically rare in any undergraduate school. Just take some time to explain to people why you transferred, the curiosity will eventually dampen itself and you will become an inherent part of your new campus.

    It depends on sex. If you are woman you start to lie about your age much earlier.

    Still, college sounds a lot too early.

    unless you can get sex by lying about your age. then college is the perfect time

    Why lie when a simple change of base can accomplish the same thing.

    I'm 34.

    no offense but you kind of sound like a tool. id get quite a kick out of it if people were thinking i was a freshmen. hell, i find it funny when the seventeen year old girls at school think im a freshmen. here's what will really piss everyone off... what ever anyone says, just go along with it. no one will know what the hell is going on.

    Of course, it would be fun to list your age as 2C, weight as 660 Newtons, and hair color as Natural Instincts #13. At least until they sent you back to the end of the line. :cry:
