A 69-year-old man has begun a legal battle to be recognised as being 20 years younger than his actual age so he can go back to work and achieve greater success with women on Tinder.
Emile Ratelband argues that if transgender people are allowed to change sex, he should be allowed to change his date of birth because doctors said he has the body of a 45-year-old.
"I have done a check-up and what does it show? My biological age is 45 years," he said.
A local court in the city of Arnhem, south-east of Amsterdam, is expected to rule on the case within four weeks.
Mr Ratelband was born on March 11, 1949, but says he feels at least 20 years younger and wants to change his birth date to March 11, 1969.
"When I'm on Tinder and it says I'm 69, I don't get an answer. When I'm 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position."
Mr Ratelband is a media personality and motivational speaker, who is a trainer in neurolinguistic programming.
