Meet Emile Ratelband, a life coach and "positivity guru" who wants to legally change his birth date to March 11, 1969 because his current age has the man "limited".
'Transgenders can now have their gender changed on their birth certificate, and in the same spirit there should be room for an age change'. Why not your age?
"When I'm on Tinder and it says I'm 69, I don't get an answer, " he complains, adding that he's far most optimistic about his prospects as a 49-year-old, "with the face I have".
"I feel much younger than my age, I am a young god, I can have all the girls I want but not after I tell them that I am 69", Ratelband told AFP on Thursday. "Nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age", he said to De Telegraaf. "I can take up more work", he said.
While some want to seem younger in the dating world, being an older member of society can also impact the chances of getting a job. "My biological age is 45 years", Ratelband said in an interview.
The judge presiding over Mr Ratelband's case said he had some sympathy for his plight, but found there would be practical problems in allowing people to change their DOB - as it would mean legally deleting a significant portion of their lives.
One of the judges wanted to know what would become of the 20 years that Mr Ratelband wanted to erase. He complains that companies are reluctant to hire someone the age of a pensioner as a consultant.
On Monday, he asked a court in his hometown of Arnhem, in the east of the country, for his date of birth to be changed from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1960.
'For whom did your parents care in those years?
BBC reported that Mr Ratelband is a media personality who had voiced the character Vladimir Trunkov in the Dutch-language version of the Pixar film Cars 2.
The Dutchman even says that he'll give up his pension if the court rules in his favor, saying that as a 49-year-old man, he would no longer need it. It is due to make a ruling in four weeks.
