So in that case it was just an excuse to tick you off. That same woman would have probably blown you off for another silly reason if you were the exact same guy but 35. And she's probably fucked the next week a 48 year old ofter one drink, who wrote 27 on his profile but gave off different vibes, and while she was taking it in the ass she was texting some beta about that fancy restaurant he was going to take her on their 4th date.
As a general rule, women aren't logical creatures. There are no "reasons" with them, there are only rationalisations to what they feel like doing.
"I'm the kind of guy you don't want to bring home to mom. Cuz I'd fuck your mom."
"I don't have a dirty mind, I have a sexy imagination"
So, set up two profiles, one for 27+ y/o women, and one for 18-26 (or whatever range you want). Tell the truth on the older profile, and lie (and keep lying if necessary) on the younger profile.
In my daily life i am around girls in their early 20s all the time and in person I have never had it so easy with this age group as I do at this age now. It's actually kind of mind-blowing, and really points up the differences between men and women. I only have this advantage in person though. With swiping, I can't bring what I have to the table. It's all photos and age ranges. I've also seen how these girls are using this apps up close and it really seems to be just another form of social media like instagram, or a video game. There are a ton of guys having all kinds of success with these apps, but they only work for me if I'm going after older women. If you're a ripped 25 year old guy with abs you basically have your pick of the litter with Tinder. For me to compete I need to get a seat at the table and that's a million times easier if I'm physically in the room with the girl.
I basically stopped using these apps for this reason. They're actually making my life more difficult and end up wasting a lot of my time.
Questionably relevant to this topic, but I found the premise of this video interesting and possibly applicable to reframing age differences:
TLDW: Old people have been saying the same shit about young people since the beginning of time.

I'm in total agreement with PE and Spiral here.
Swipping apps lowered the chances for guys over 35 to match with VYW.
The alternatives are as follows (some already discussed):
- change your age to five years less (doing more could harm you in the future) and put in your profile description something like "I'm a little older" (technically this is not lying);
- paying those apps/sites to increase your matching chances (some guys report it, never tested myself);
- avoid swiping apps completely (lower matching chances, too many attention whores);
- decrease the gap and go for women closer to your age;
- auto-likers, using these apps as secondary options;
About tinder, my personal experience is once you flip to the wrong side of 30s your matching ratio will drop by half with women below 25. I'm good-looking and look like 27-28, does not matter. It's the damn number on the side of my name that counts.

A tinderguy just sent me a dickpic. If that"'s the way most guys at tinder are.. I am leaving it too. It''s not about the pic, it''s about the fact that I put a boundary there (told him dont send me) and it''s not socially acceptable. Yet he thought he should send me that pic? Told him I was blocking him. And how he could send me a pic like that. Then he blocked me xD but yeah. Talking about boundaries...
Not going to report him, but wonder whether he sends that kinda pics to every girl.
Also: if you sent those, don't be surprised if you got reported xD
