I recently found out that one of my classmates, a Japanese girl, is dating a 31 year old guy.
She told me he was a responsible businessman and they met in a store.
Now it's not a matter of legal or illegal because she is 18 now.
I told my mum the story and she said "I guess it's okay if she accepts it"
But when I told my conservative dad he acted harshly and said that it was wrong.

Now in the celebrity industry, if that's even a word, we see couples with large age-gaps.
Ronnie Wood is dating someone 42 years younger than him, a Russian model for instance.
About how much is it okay, and does age even matter if they love each other?

I personally think if it's legal, than it's okay, even if it's one of those teacher-student relationships.
If the younger accepts the elder's interest, than age really shouldn't matter.

It depends on the people involved. One of my best friends who is 15 is dating a 22 year old. They're really close and whatnot, but she's pretty mature for her age and all that jazz.

31/2+7=22.5

22.5>18

thus it is not OK.

Funny thing. I have a 21-year old buddy that's flirting around with a 31-year old japanese woman.


Anyway- As long as both participants are happy, I don't see why not.

wat the...
x/2 + 7 is ok

x= your age

lets say you are 18:
18/2 + 7 = age of the girl you can date
9 + 7 = 16
so you can date 16 years old girls

That's totally okay, they're like both perfect adults (I assume) and only 10 years apart.

I guess it really depends on the person. I'm involved with someone 8 years older than me, but I'm 19 and kind of mature for my age. And we're both in the same stage in life (i.e. still in college etc.). But 18 - 31? Idk, sounds kind of extreme to me, I mean, she'd either have to be super mature or him super immature to get them to line up.

jesus.

x is your age.

your age divided by 2 plus 7 is the lowest age that it is okay for you to boink. say you are 16. 16/2=8, 8+7=15. It is okay for you to sweetly romance a 15 year old, but no younger.

x/2 + 7 is the equation that determines the suitable minimum age of a potential partner through your teen years up until your late 20s, where x = your own age.

It's perfectly fine, whatever makes people happy. I have no right to judge couples for personal descision that only affect them.

I read that as '8 years younger than me' at first, needless to say I applauded. Then realized my mistake.

I don't really care if it's okay or not. I just love to take the piss on him by asking him how many times they've discussed marriage.

Im seven years older than my girl friend. She is over 18 by the way.

We don't seem to have any problems with the age difference.

And to put it simply, half of your age plus seven is the minimum age you should date. Not that I follow that.

Recommended age = 10 / 2 + 7 = 12.

That's because 10-year-olds shouldn't date. With the equation, the youngest age that works is 13 (using the rounding down if it's not a full number method), which is probably a good age to start dating.

lets say you are 18:
18/2 + 7 = age of the girl you can date
9 + 7 = 16
so you can date 16 years old girls

Eh, it does kind of fall apart at lower ages, but it allows for a little more freedom once you get to be a bit older.

I don't care if one person is 36, a 23 year old is a mature (ish) person who is conscious of their actions.
