Do you always declare your true age?

How many women (or men) lie about their age? I've not been tempted for any reason - yet - but their seems to be quite a number that do. Also - I've noticed lots of people use (old) photos of themselves on social networking sites - 10 years plus in some cases. Is this a case of not getting around to updating or done deliberately? Would love to hear different views!

I tell a lie! It's just come back to me - I remember adding a few years to my age when in my teens smile

I don't mind adding a few years on if I can get my pension earlier!

I dont usually lie about my age; but here"s a thing...........
When I get on a bus and produce my bus pass, once or twice, the driver has glanced at the photo, and remarked tongue in cheek;
"Eeh; is this really you on here? Then looks at me and says;
You dont look a day over 90!"
I have to say that photo is absolutely ghastly and dosnt resemble me in the slightest!
The photographer who took that must have been the same man (or woman) who took my passport photo!!!!
