The rule to define the youngest that a romantic interest can be before the relationship is indecent.
26-year-old Barbara waited patiently until Jack turned 20, fulfilling the half-your-age-plus-seven rule, before pursuing him romantically.


And for those of you that are bad at maths:



So do any of you ones follow this rule? According to the rule I can't get with a girl younger than 16, which is fine with me really since if there's no grass growing on the field I won't play.
#3
generally i thought with most men the rule would be

"as long as they are legal".

So , i think its a silly rule.
#4
Yeah, I'm not really in a position where I interact with a whole lot of chicks that age anyways. Plus it's annoying as shit for people on both ends (when you know a dude who's dating a high school chick, or you have a friend who's dating some dude waaaay older than her).

I'd struggle to define anyone much younger than 17 as "hot"


This.

I wouldn't really go lower than 18. Though if a nice 17 y/o threw themselves at me (unlikely) then I might not say no. Just for shits and giggles you understand.

This chick I know who´s 15 has sex with guys who are like 25. I don´t like it, but maybe that´s just me.

I'm not really going after any 17 year olds. I think there's a line somewhere, and I don't feel like crossing it.


Unless she's like....a way hot 17 year old. I can make exceptions.

I think this rule is just idiotic. I have dated women who were 10-15 years younger then me, and I've dated women 12 years older then me.

As long as it's legal who cares.

No more than two school years below seemed to be the general rule in mine.


And the bold part made me
#20
I think it just really depends upon the people. Just like the argument about how many kids a parent should have before it's considered irresponsible. It just depends upon too many things for there to be an accurate rule. And I think that applies to lots more things, too.

But I guess this is a good guideline for not being seen as a creep.

I try to follow it as a guideline but it seems a bit pedantic to me to judge possible relationships based on some formula that has no real meaning. Out of all of my close friends the one with the most successful relationship so far was a guy who dated a girl who was 3 and a half years younger than him (14 when he was 18), four years later they still spend every moment together and are likely to get married soon.

You don't know what pedophilia means, do you.

By law where he lives , wouldn't he be charged with having relations with a minor?

That's where the law needs sorted IMO. you could be a 17 year old one day with a 16 year old girlfriend and then 1 day passes and its suddenly illegal. It's very odd.

It's possible that he would, but that has nothing to do with pedophilia.

You're graph is way off, I'm 40 that would mean 20 + 7 = 27. Doesn't match the graph at all...

I'm pretty sure in some places there is a 1-2 year gap where sex can be legal (i.e 18 year old can have sex w/ 17 year old). I can see why the current law exists but it seems a bit ridiculous to me considering how many people start having sex around 16-17 (or younger).
#31
It means I can date 19-year-olds, which seems fine. I could go down to 18 to be honest

18 is the lowest I'll go, but it's only half a year above what my lowest is, anyway.

I can go to 18. I'm with a 22 year old. I am 22.

Time for a younger model?

22/2 + 7 = 18. Yeah, that's quite a realistic and logical line for me. Anyone younger than that is basically a kid in my eyes.

I don't even remember the age of two of the girls I've been with. And I've only been with 4
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash
#35
Wife is 13 years older than me, so right now it's right at the "rule", but when we started dating and got married, I was younger than that would have been. Age is just a #, what matters is the mentality of the individuals involved in the relationship.
#37
I find it weird to date younger peeps. But I'm good atm.
^^ Hahah, I'm just kidding.. or am I?


Don't click this.
#38
that makes 17-26 for me. meh.

also, what's the point of making a thread about this? everyone already knows of this.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#39
My boyfriend is 22, but when we got together he was 21 and I was 17, and now I'm 18 so the rule isn't broken anymore. But I think it's a silly rule anyway, people can be different maturity levels at different ages, I think as long as there isn't any laws being broken, like, a 30 year old having sex with a 15 year old, then it's fine. Age is silly.
