Some of us limit our potential partners to a very specific age range because that’s what we think we’ll be attracted to.This kind of culling is even easier now that dating sites let us whittle our options down to the year.It is up to you to be mutually happy with the person you date.
For example, when someone was considering marriage, the age mattered more than if someone was considering a one-night stand with a partner.
This makes sense of course because you want to ensure compatibility for the long-term success of your relationship and marriage, but researchers were surprised to find the less serious a relationship was, the younger partner someone might take.
I contend that as long as nobody is being willfully creepy (I see you, guys in Ferrari hats), this kind of limitation is mega lame.
I know many smoking-hot middle-aged people who are emotional teenagers.
If only I could tell them how many broke, destitute middle-aged guys I’ve slept with, and challenge their ugly stereotypes.
And on the other hand, unless you’re going out with somebody she’s young, I don’t think it’s cause for judgment.For most people, they use the simple rule of “half your age plus seven years” for dating someone younger than themselves, and they use the rule to determine if someone is too old for them is “subtract seven years and double that number.” So if someone is 30 years old, according to these rules, they should be dating people ranging from ages 22 – 46.That’s a huge range, and you can imagine the mental states and life experiences of someone who is 22 is drastically different than someone who is 46.So the question begs to be asked: is this formula accurate and does it really help people find love that is right for them?Here’s what researchers have found: When researchers set out to determine the magical age range that is acceptable to both individuals and society as the appropriate age for dating, they found that people had different age limits depending on the context.As anybody who’s ever had to play "What are your top five favorite movies? A fantastic woman several years my senior recently told me I should only date older men, because even though I’m 28, "being in your twenties is a form of functional retardation." I think there’s a grain of truth there, if only because I don’t know anybody who looks back and thinks, "Man, how awesome was I in my twenties?" except for aging pageant queens and John Mellencamp. I know this because I once worked with a 42-year-old man who was skipping his daughter’s birthday because "she’ll have one every year, but you never know when they’re going to shut down Burning Man for good."True, another factor is judgment from other people, who may see a 44-year-old going to dinner with a 25-year-old and make judgments about which one of them is drowning in student loan debt.While the rule says that a 40-year-old woman could date a 27-year-old, most 40-year-old women don’t feel comfortable doing that, according to researchers.Women tend to stay much lower than the rule states is acceptable.Like height or body type, age is one of those strange things about a person that we know they can’t help, but nevertheless handily use to write them off.If you dismiss people because of their personalities or because you’re on some kind of baby-making timetable, fine, fair enough.
