A 69-year-old man who identifies as a 45-year-old has begun a legal battle to lower his age to help him pull women on Tinder.
Emile Ratelband, 69, wants to change his birthday from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969 - making him a 49-year-old man in the eyes of the law.
'When I'm on Tinder and it say I'm 69, I don't get an answer. If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different vehicle.
Ratelband argued that he is a "young god" and said changing his age would allow him to "live differently", saying he would get more matches on Tinder if he could put a younger age.
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.
The self-proclaimed positivity guru argued that he feels 20 years younger, and compared the age difference to being transgender, despite the concept being completely different from biological genders. In Australia, for example, many older people struggle to find work once they reach their 50s and 60s, despite the fact that it is illegal for companies to specifically discriminate against candidates due to their age.
He also said he would renounce his pension if he was allowed to switched his birth date.
But the court said there would be practical problems in allowing people to change their birth date - as it would mean legally deleting part of their lives.
BBC reported that Mr Ratelband is a media personality who had voiced the character Vladimir Trunkov in the Dutch-language version of the Pixar film Cars 2. "Who was that little boy then?" the judge asked.
