Youthful woman claims men on dating apps refuse to believe her age and puts her looks down to staying active, drinking 2 litres of water daily and using SPF – but can YOU guess how old she is?
- Eudora Okoro, 60, from Wirral, has been mistaken for being in her 30s and 40s
- Dance teacher, widowed in 2019, said men on dating apps don’t believe her age
- Said staying hydrated, active and using SPF keeps her appearance youthful
A woman who looks decades younger than she is has revealed men on dating apps refuse to believe her real age.
Eudora Okoro, from Wirral, revealed she has been routinely complimented for her youthful appearance, and says that she’s managed to defy the signs of ageing by staying hydrated, active and wearing SPF.
The dance teacher and DJ, who is currently single, says she’s approached by men as young as 19 or 20 who are then shocked to discover she’s 60-years-old.
She told Liverpool Echo: ‘A lot of them think I am lying when I tell them my age. I’ve got to the point where I have reduced my age by 10 years – but people still don’t believe me when I reveal my actual age.’
Eudora Okoro, 60, from Wirral, who is routinely mistaken for being younger than her age, has claimed men on dating apps refuse to believe how old she is
Eudora revealed her age-defying appearance is the result of staying hydrated, active and wearing SPF
Eudora claims people who she went to school with have made comments about her ageless appearance saying that it makes them ‘feel sick’.
She explained how she hated being skinny throughout her teenage years and began eating to try and get bigger.
However she decided to be more mindful of her diet and lifestyle after her father warned that her mother had been slim until she hit her 30s.
Eudora said: ‘I’m one of those people where if somebody says something to me it’s like a challenge, so I said that won’t be me.
Eudora (pictured, with her dad) even claimed a beauty company told her she looked ‘too good’ for their campaign to promote an anti-aging product
‘I started looking after my body after that by drinking lots of water, eating well and exercising.’
Having been asked about the secret to her youthful looks when buying alcohol or visiting the doctor, Eudora admitted that the flattering comments can be ’embarrassing’.
Meanwhile she said a beauty company recruiting models in their 50s to 60s to test a new anti-aging product even told her that she was ‘too good’ to feature in their campaign.
‘One time I must have been in my late 30s, early 40s and I was at a party with a guy I was going out with.
‘I was sat talking to this older lady and said I was just going to go and get a glass of wine,’ Eudora said.
‘She looked up and said to me ‘oh, dear, are you old enough?’
Eudora said dating since her husband Paul died in 2019 has been difficult because men on apps don’t believe her age
Eudora said she thinks how people age is ‘completely in their hands’, while revealing she drinks at least two litres of water each day
And, having lost her 52-year-old husband Paul in 2019, she said it’s been difficult to date using apps because men often don’t believe her age.
Meanwhile she claimed men as young as 19 and 20 have contacted her, while not believing her age.
The 60-year-old said she has reduced her age by 10 years on dating apps and has been complimented on her ‘natural beauty’ but men are still skeptical of her real age.
She believes that how we age is ‘completely in our hands’ unless we have a medical condition.
The 60-year-old said the secret to her youthful looks comes down to looking after herself.
She starts her day with fresh fruit and vegetable juice and follows a plant-based diet, in addition to exercising daily and drinking two litres of water.
