DutchmaN, 69, goes to court to be 49
LONDON: A Dutch “positivity guru” has launched a legal battle to change his age and boost his dating prospects.
The 69-year-old Emile Ratelband says he does not feel his age and hence has started a lawsuit to make him legally 20 years younger to become a “catch” on dating app, Tinder.
Ratelband wants to shift his birthday from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969, comparing the change to identifying as being transgender.
“We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gender. Why can’t I decide my own age?” he was quoted as saying.
