Dating age formula for girls video

If that's not an easy conversation opener, I truly don't know what is.)But after all sorts of successes and failures with women, as time has gone on, I've found at least common failure: a massive age gap.

I'm, by no means, the most mature 30-year-old dude you're going to meet, and I'm not insinuating that all younger women are flighty or immature.

It seems that there’s an XKCD comic for every life situation that we run in to. One of my favorites, by far, is the comic titled “Dating pools.” This comic highlighted the Standard Creepiness Rule, a.k.a.

the “half-your-age-plus-seven” rule, which states that no person should date someone under (age / 2 7), otherwise they will look like a creeper.

Many relationship researchers have gone to great lengths to figure out what type of couples make it and which don’t.This seems arbitrary, but if you crunch your age into that equation, I’m willing to bet that you wouldn’t even consider dating someone under that age. ) If we plot the Standard Creepiness Rule out for men: (Note that you can easily just change the axis labels in the above chart and it works just as well for women.) It just so happens that Christian Rudder released his book Dataclysm last week, which features a chart showing us the age range that men search on Ok Cupid for when looking for women to date.One of my first thoughts when I saw this chart was: Do men on Ok Cupid follow the Standard Creepiness Rule?To be fair, it isn’t just that someone is too old to date someone else, it is that someone might be too young. Some might think there isn’t any magical dating age rule, but there is.In fact, a lot of scientific research was allocated to studying how many years difference people should have between them for a happy relationship.(And now we see why the last panel of the XKCD comic above applies so well to me…) Sure enough, if we overlay Rudder’s Ok Cupid data over the first chart, we see that men follow the rule almost exactly.
