Some people use the rule of dividing your age in half , then adding 7... ( as the lower limit age)but that does not work for some........
I remember sitting with a good friend as she recounted her love story. Many of us, guys and girls, have our own version of “the list,” and my friend had kept a long one for a long time.
She threw it away when she started getting serious with the man who would one day be her husband. When I go on a first date, I tell myself the same thing: “People are worth knowing.” Some of the greatest men I’ve dated didn’t match the attributes on my original list.
That's because proving something to yourself and the world at large just became more important than the age difference or even the relationship itself, and scoring a relationship with somebody young enough to be your own child is merely a means of accomplishing the proof you hope to achieve and the perceptions you want to maintain. Same applies, but best results seem to occur when the difference is no more than 10 years. He was attractive and looked great for mid 50s but you could STILL TELL he was in his mid 50s. My mother is 56 and is in a relationship with a guy I went to high school with. Personally I'd go as low as 30 and as high as 55 but my preference is for a man /- five or so years of my age.
Othwerwise why would you take the time to point out you only look 15 years older than your intended target when you are actually 20 years older??? Most women seem to search up to 10 years older, so I figured that realistically that was what the norm was. Just because you look GOOD does not mean you look YOUNG. I don't find age differences creepy unless the age of the other person is viewed as some sort of trophy which I suspect could possibly be the motives of the OP.
Don’t confuse group dating with double-dating or triple-dating.
Decades ago the statistics ranged from six to fourteen months.
Ted Huston, a leading researcher on transitions in relationships, marriage and parenthood, followed couples for 13 years starting in 1979.
These aren’t women who have been dating for two months, but rather women who are in long-term relationships.
They have seemingly great mates who have jobs and call their moms and open doors to restaurants- but haven’t yet popped the question.
