Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...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.
While I could see my dad dating someone around 37 (although he’s married so he won’t be!
) I just couldn’t imagine him having anything in common with someone who was 100.
I'm 33...should I start stalking seniors' homes???? I know, I'm terrible I will sheepeshly admit that I tried dating an older man... for most it must have looked like a father and daughter going out for dinner... Still friends, but the age difference was too much. Socially acceptable - politically correct - It's all way too judemental and pitting one persons ideals upon another - not cool!!!
Personal decisions should be just that personal - for no one to point fingers at.
What is the acceptable minimum age for your own (and others’) dating partners?
When this question comes up in conversation, someone inevitably cites the “half your age plus seven” rule.
I really liked this idea although as the person’s age increases, the less correct this equation seems.
I really thought it worked well at the lower age ranges but in the 40s things started to get a little excessive first for the upper limit and then later for the lower limit as well. The equation given would suggest that his optimal dating range would be between 36.5 and 100.
(im reminded of the scientist from the simpsons, lol) You look at them... This formula is of no value unless you are dating a math teacher. According to your calculation the ratio of our ages at that time was fine.
While you are busy doing math, someone else more concerned with life and living will get your girl. I'm not sure..know how that whole Anne Nicole Smith and the old guy looked.... But I realized once we started going out in public that I was uncomfortable with how I perceived we were being perceived...
There are few people I know, male or female, who wouldn't consider dating Tina Fey if she were single. In the grand scheme of things, it's not that big a deal and it will open up your options a bit.
