Age limit for dating
Jared Leto is, crushingly, out of my age range (39), but let’s be honest.So, many people wonder, what is your age limit, to date that is... According to the rule, for example, a 30-year-old should be with a partner who is at least 22, while a 50-year-old’s dating partner must be at least 32 to not attract (presumed) social sanction. Does it match our scientific understanding of age-related preferences for dating? Researchers Buunk and colleagues (2000) asked men and women to identify the ages they would consider when evaluating someone for relationships of different levels of involvement.People reported distinct age preferences for marriage; a serious relationship; falling in love; casual sex; and sexual fantasies. Based on the figures Buunk and colleagues (2000) provided (and thus the numbers are only informed approximations), I replotted their data superimposing the max and min age ranges defined by the half-your-age-plus-7 rule.Plenty of people have dated and even married with large age gaps.Live life as best as you can and as happiest as you can.This rules states that by dividing your own age by two and then adding seven you can find the age boundary: Take your age, subtract 7, and double it.So for a 24-year old, the upper age limit would be 34 (i.e., 17 * 2).
Or should they find mates that are closer to their own ages?To find out what the youngest age you should date is, take your current age, divide it by 2, and add 7. This seems perfectly reasonable, and I was pretty excited to compare this age to celebrity crushes. I’m 25 now, so I took 12.5, added 7 years, is 19.5. To find out what the oldest age you should date is, take your current age, subtract 7, and multiply it by two. Probably wouldn't date anyone older than 26, but that's a personal thing. In the words of Aaliyah, "Age ain't nothing but a number, throwing down ain't nothing but a thang." It's like what many people have already said, if you're happy and she's happy, then where's the stress? We've been texting back and forth and I already have a date for us next week. I'm much older, but I don't look, dress, or act my age. Do I continue pursuing the relationship or just forget about it? Since I'm still relatively close to the legal age, for me at 23, I probably wouldn't date anyone younger than 19-20. Chemistry also plays into it, though not as deeply as compatibility.
