I’ve never understood this quotation. Why shouldn’t we trust an open and honest woman?

Funny observation. In my opinion, if a woman tells you her age, she either does not regard herself as a woman, or she does not regard you as a male.

Yeah. And if we can't trust then we don't know for sure if it's true or imaginary age...

How should one know that one had been told a woman's real age, for one never to trust her?
