A 69‑year‑old Dutchman wants the courts to make him officially 20 years younger, likening the change to identifying as transgender.
Emile Ratelband has launched a legal bid to change his age by 20 years in order to improve his chances with women on dating applications like Tinder and help with job prospects, according to reports in Dutch media.
On Monday, he asked a court in his hometown for his date of birth to be changed from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969.
He told the court that he "suffers" as a 69‑year‑old and has been feeling "20, 25 years younger" than his official age.
