'When I'm on Tinder and it say I'm 69, I don't get an answer.

Mr Ratelband also made a point of stressing that he has the body of a 45-year-old, and described himself as a "young god".

The Dutchman also said he doesn't want to lie about his age on Tinder when trying to meet women and officially having it reduced by 20 years would solve this problem.

Emile Ratelband, a 69-year old Dutch pensioner, author, former millionaire, and founder of Ratelband Research Institute and the Ratelband Foundation, has started a legal battle to have his actual age changed legally.

The court is due to deliver a written ruling within four weeks, according to the report. Do you think this man should be allowed to change his name?

Emile Ratelband argues that if transgender people are allowed to change their sex, then he should be allowed to change his date of birth.

MLB Rumors: Free Agent Bryce Harper To The Yankees ‘Not Happening’
Even though Harper is still only 26, a 14-year deal with an average annual value of $30 million per season felt a bit excessive. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes).

Mr Ratelband, who is a famous motivational speaker and media personality in The Netherlands, was born on March 11 1949.

The single father, who said he has tried in vain to stop his basic pension, told the tribunal on Monday that his petition was "legitimate", likening his bid for a legal remedy to people who register a change of official gender. "When I'm 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position", Ratelband theorizes. Why can't I decide my own age?' Ratelband is quoted as saying.

According to his doctor, his biological age is between 40 and 45, he said. "I can take up more work", he continued. "Nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age", he told De Telegraaf.

The public prosecutor in the court asked whether the ability to change a date of birth in the law would require health inspections in the future, to allow the state to correctly judge someone's "emotional age".

This would essentially be deleting the first 20 years of Mr Ratelbrand's life, the judge added.

"Maybe they say, 'You have weak muscles for 49 years, '" Ratelband muses. "Who was that little boy back then?"
