Oh, sisterly love. What would you do if you found out your sister was lying to her boyfriend about her age? Is it your place to tell? Or should she have kept to herself?
The original poster (OP) on Reddit explains that she has a younger sister, who is 21. Her sister has been dating a 30-year-old guy for around four months. OP says that the boyfriend is a decent guy and that her boyfriend’s brother knows him. OP says he owns property and works a good-paying job.
OP’s sister was bragging about her boyfriend the other day and let it slip that he thinks she’s 25 years old and lied about her age because he has a rule about dating women under the age of 25. OP says that her sister looks older than she is, especially when she wears makeup.
Her sister claims he is a good guy who could take care of her. OP told her sister that it wasn’t okay that she lied and that she wasn’t being mature.

OP said that after her sister left, she looked her boyfriend up on Facebook and sent him a message saying she was Maya’s older sister and that she isn’t really 25. OP also told him that she isn’t a college student and that she actually works at a farmer’s market in the next town over.
Later that night, OP’s sister called her and called her a jerk, saying that her boyfriend had broken up with her and it was OP’s fault. OP does not feel like she was in the wrong and that the boyfriend deserved to know he was being lied to.
Here’s What Other Thought:
“NTA, people like your sister are probably the reason Rob has that rule…”
“God I hated dating. It was so bad that the reason I had a no under 25 rule was the risk of underage people hitting me up. I talked to some 24 year old for a few days then “hey so actually I’m 17 but will be 18 in like 7 months is that cool” nope block and report.”
Another added, “
She’s the reason he made that rule and she must have realized this was going end badly. Unless she was delusional enough to believe he would just fall too deeply in love… eye roll”
Was OP in the wrong? Should she have told her sister’s boyfriend that she was lying about her age? What would you have done in this situation?
