Finally, an FML that illustrates the repercussions of all those "fun" age-swap movies. Age-swaps are no laughing matter—don't let those Freaky Fridays, Bigs, or 17 Agains fool you!

My dad is 44 and I have friends ask if he's my brother or if we run errands they think we're newly weds. It's so weird but people can get older and look young.

@23, Tom Cruise? More like have you seen Jared Leto? He's in his 40's and he looks like in his 30's. He looks so good for his age and his skin is flawless. I wouldn't say Tom Cruise is ugly but he does not look younger than he actually is, imo.

I'm sorry, but in no universe is a 48 year old who lies about being 28 to date an 18 year old, worth the kind of hassle that comes from lying about being twenty years younger. (Literally old enough to be OP's parent.) Run, OP. Run fast, and run far.

Even though I still find it uncomfortable when I hear about people dating with a huge age gap , I know it's none of my business and I agree that the people involved know/ should do what's best for them. BUT when it involves lying SIGNIFICANTLY about your age, that's a huge red flag. A little white lie here and there is normal in dating I'm sure, but this goes way beyond "little white lie".

I have had people lie about their age for awhile. Now, this person already was a large gap, and they lied about like two years. That hit me as such a huge red flag. If they can lie about something as inconsequential as two years of their life, what else would they lie about?

That may be the case, if he didn't grossly lie about his age. And, according to the poster's name, he/she is 18. A thirty-year-gap in that particular case is just a bit ripe for an unequal relationship and potential abuse, especially given the fact that he's an established liar.

What Freaky Friday failed to do with seriousness and warning, it made up for in its title... which would be pretty accurate from what I'd gather. although maybe fucked up Friday would be even more accurate.

Age is just a number, but lying is, as has been pointed out, a deal breaker. My girlfriend is younger than me by 12 years, but there was no deception involved, so no problem. The issue here is that the Ancient One lied, thus preventing OP from choosing for themselves whether to date an older person.
