"I don't want to lie", he said.
He said on Thursday: "With this free (dom) of choice, choice of name, freeness of gender, I want to have my own age".
The 69-year-old also spoke to The Washington Post, and said he is not concerned that his comparison of an age change to a sex change may be offensive to transgender people.
On Tinder, he says he gets no responses from prospective ladies - all because of his age.
The single father, who said he has tried in vain to stop his basic pension, told the tribunal on Monday that his petition was "legitimate", likening his bid for a legal remedy to people who register a change of official gender. He also said his actual age has been a sticking point for potential clients concerned he can't "speak the language of young people" despite being more knowledgeable and experienced than younger competitors.
Ratelband argues in his lawsuit that since transgender people can legally change their gender, he should be able to change his age.
Ratelband cites several reasons as to why he wants to lower his age from 69 years to 49 years.

Whatever his motives, Ratelband has devoted substantial effort to convincing the authorities he's serious. But if the case doesn't shake out the way, he says he'll simply take it to a higher court. "Nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age", Dutch paper De Telegraaf quoted Ratelband as saying.
"This is American thinking", Ratelband claimed.
"I don't want my kids to be embarrassed by me when I take them to the school gates and I'm 85", he added. You have to stretch yourself. "But I'm not going to lie on Tinder". "If you earn 100 grand a month, now I want to earn 120 grand". "Trump is the first one who is honest".
The man is requesting that his birthday change from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969.
"Who were your parents looking after then? Who was that little boy back then?", the judge asked rhetorically, according to The Telegraph.
According to the newspaper, the court is skeptical about Ratelband's case as there is no legal precedent in this area. We even have the right to change our name. "You can't magically change your age".
