DEAR ABBY: I am a 58-year-old man who has been meeting women online for a few years.I recently met "Molly," whose profile said she was 60.We dated several times and then she spent a few days at my house.

Many women -- and men -- fudge the truth on dating sites when stating their height, weight, age and income. Molly was able to pass for younger than her chronological age.

(There's a saying in journalism: If your mother says she loves you, check it out.) Not everyone ages at the same rate. If the number is that important to you, it's your right to move on. DEAR ABBY: I'm facing major surgery in Seattle, where my son and his wife live, 2,000 miles from my home.

But being rigid about age could let a good person slip by. After the surgery, I must stay in town for 10 days until my post-op appointment. During that period, my son will be working overseas and his wife plans to join him.

Because their condo will be empty, I asked if my husband and I could stay there during my recovery. I also know that if the request were from mother, she'd be welcome in a heartbeat. My son's wife has isolated him from some of his friends, too.

My son informed us that while we are welcome to stay there when they're in town, we are not welcome when they aren't. I have been nothing but generous and supportive of them. -- Aching DEAR ACHING: Your disappointment is understandable, but the way to react is to tell your son that you are disappointed and you will make other arrangements for a place to recuperate.

We aren't slobs and would care for the place as if it were our own. I don't think it would be helpful right now to point out that his wife has isolated him from his friends and appears to be doing the same with his mother and dad.

He will figure that out for himself in time, if he doesn't already know.

So I looked her name up online and found out she was seven years older than she had advertised.

I consider lying on a dating profile to be similar to lying on a job application.
