Dating age formula 7
The utility of this equation is that it lets you chart acceptable age discrepancies that adjust over the years. Let's examine it: How well does the rule reflect scientific evidence for age preferences?
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.
When I was 21, I randomly set my dating age cap at 30, and it’s sort of stuck there ever since. If Jordan Catalano ever showed any glimmer of interest, well.
Unfortunately, I’m definitely not 21 any more, and 30 is, well, not that much older than me.
Men’s preferred minimum partner age: Let’s start with minimum age preferences reported by heterosexual men.
An interesting fun dating age range calculator to find out minimum and maximum dating age of person whom you wish to date.
So years ago, I was told a formula for guys to figure out the youngest girl they are allowed to date. For a female, as MKD66 pointed out (and kudos to him for remembering his Jr High math), it becomes more of a "maximum age" formula and becomes: ([Girl's age] - 7) x 2 = [Guy's age]Does this mean that there's an underlying understanding in here that it is socially acceptable for a man to date any older women or for a women to date any younger man? I can meet someone younger that acts too old, or vice versa. My ex was 12 years older than me....since then I 've been dating men younger than me. Then there are some 40- somethings who just like to sit infront of the tv.
For some reason it stuck with me but over the years, on the rare occasions when I mentioned it to someone, no one else had ever heard of it... So, I agree, it is mind thing.(age 36)That would make my maximum age 58 eeewwww my dad is 57 , I used to state in my profile that if you were closer to my dad's age it wasn't going to happen.Until about a month ago, when my friend's mom (while volunteering at an event) started talking to me about people being "too young for each other" and quoted the formula. Younger than me even by a year has never worked for me. But a lot of other things factored into that, he had to be done with having kids.....cause I'm done, one woman has to and needs to be enough for him (around here hahahah that's a rare find) read RARE not ALLI'm trying to be a bit more open minded about age-I used to say Id never date a younger man..as I get older, they seem...yummier?So not it's making me wonder how many people have actually ever heard of this before (although I'm sure on a dating website, more people have). I have met some really immature 50 year old men and women and some bright mature 25 year olds. LOLActually, to me its more important that we are at the same stage in life, IE kids are older, or none at all, and they cant want anymore-cause Im done with that too.For convenience, the line representing x=y is also shown (in blue).The area between the blue and red lines shows where you are the older partner in the half-age-plus-seven calculation, while the area between the black and blue lines shows where you are the younger partner.This Dating Age Range Calculator just a fun tool to predict your dating age.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
