How does one handle AP lying about something as simple
Lots of people lie about their age, it is so common it is insignificant in my book!
I do think lying is usually a deal breaker. However, in your case, the age thing seems to be the only lie you've caught him in. Of all the lies a person can tell, the age one is one of the most tolerable. Should he have lied? No. Was there a good ligitimate reason for the lie? You say that you had a very certain age requirement from an AP. Maybe he was nervous about being too close to your cut-off, or feels self-concisous about being much older than you. So far I've never caught my AP in a lie, but I do know our age difference is a sensitive area for him. Just talk to him, tell him how you feel without being too accusatory. See what he has to say.
