So it goes...[Guys age] / 2 7 = [Girl's Age]So myself being 28, the youngest girl I should date, by this formula, would be 21. Well, if my memory of junior high algebra serves me correctly:[Guys age] / 2 7 = [Girl's Age][Guys age] / 2 = [Girl's Age] - 7[Guys age] = 2 * [Girl's Age] - 7See? I'm assuming that order of operations applies, so I didn't bother with parenthesis. Same level of physical activities,lifestyle, intellect, moral beliefs, and treatment toward others etc are more important than age these days to me. I like what happened to me as I went thru my thirties, and would prefer a man that has at least entered that stage.
A 40 year old should not date younger than a 27 year old. It's an important age/stage to go through, in my opinion.
) I just couldn’t imagine him having anything in common with someone who was 100.With that in mind, I decided to try my hand at an equation by adding a hard cap to to both the upper and lower limit.While it’s not perfect (it’s still hard for me to imagine my dad dating someone who is 77) I do think the limits look better with the artificial caps applied.Again, you can see the original article that this discussed this idea in detail over at Insatiable Hee. At 53 (I know it's hard to believe, but there it is) my minimum age is 33. It's a tongue in cheek "generally, but not always", "based on my personal experience and anecdotal only" statement.
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. I found an interesting article that proposes a math equation for suggesting the age of people you should be willing to date.I really liked this idea although as the person’s age increases, the less correct this equation seems.Things still aren’t perfect but the ranges seem more reasonable.The new equation (created using excel) is: Lower Limit =IF(YOUR_AGE – SUM((YOUR_AGE/2) 7) 20, YOUR_AGE 20, (YOUR_AGE-7)*2) For the lower limit, I’m checking if the lower range is more than 20 years younger than YOUR_AGE and if it is I’m capping it at 20 years younger. Here’s what my initial results look like: This is just one section of the entire results and you can download the entire excel sheet here.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?
