Doesn't really bother me, but I can see how it could cross the line of personal information for some people. Often I will ask it to determine if a person's way of speaking (typing) is age appropriate or not, but I wouldn't ask a question I'm not willing to answer myself.

Re: age?

I use to be asked a lot to friend some random user I meet on PSHome and later on it turns out to be some kid. Now when someone I was conversing with asks me to friend them, I say "I'm an adult", and they usually leave me alone after that. Although I don't mind kids, but it's kind of creepy having a bunch of kids on your friends list, so I at least want to have only adult friends. I don't ask their age, but I'll let people know I'm no kid.

I get random club applications, and I ask for their age with every one, because I don't want a youth (yeah, I said it! :smileytongue:) on my friend list that isn't family or friends of same. I'd add under 18 if they're family of gaming friends, but not of Home relations.

I don't generally ask folks personal questions unless I've known them for quite awhile. In most cases It's  fairly easy to know if your talking to someone young. If someone asks me personal things. I politely tell them I don't give out personal information. Most folks understand and don't have an issue with it.

If they become insistent on things I tell them I have to leave and I simply relocate to a different space.:womanhappy:

I don't mind answering such questions, but to save the trouble of asking me, I have my Birthdate posted on my Profile. All my gaming information, and the fact that I'm willing to help others, is posted there.

I tell people my age, but they don't believe me. I had someone tell me his age once as 9, but when he found out I was an adult, he said 19. I have one account where I say I am 12, just because I want to be" alone" on that account,lol

That's cool, but does it work, or do people still ask you? :smileyhappy:

Some people still ask, others assume and yes, some do look at my Profile.

UGH. IKR.

 

"How old are you?"

~You answer then ask, "How about you?"

"Oh, old enough. I don't tell people unless I know them well."

THEN WHY THE HECK YOU ASK ME?!!

 

Even worse. True story -

 

Guy asks how old I am. I tell him a fake age, like 17. Guy says hes 18. Later I oversee him talking to another female, who he asks the same question. Female says 23. He now says 24. Convenient.

 

So, now when someone I don't know asks me the age, I press that "pick a number" thing. Sometimes I'm 16. Sometimes I'm 25. Sometimes I am 96. They usually get mad at me and leave. IDK why age is so important unless your intentions are wrong, haha.
