I am 36, however I tend to be interested in girls around mid 20's 24-27 or so. Sometimes I will get asked "How old are you?" Which in reality is not a strange question. I can, and have passed for 27. A lot of people can't believe I am 36 when I tell them. However my concern is that when I am getting to know a woman who may be 10 years younger than me, I am hesitant to tell my real age, I also do not want to lie to them either.
Last night I was asked via text. I quickly jumped on line and searched "How to answer 'How old are you PUA". There were many different suggestions. One was quoted from Neil Strauss aka Styles. He said "Young enough to do it often, and old enough to do it right" Her response was "Who said we're having sex?", and age never came up again.
I guess my question is, should I drop my real age, or should I keep using deflector lines? My concern is that if I am chatting up a girl who is 24-25 she may get turned off by my age of 36.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
