Men dating age equation
EDIT: or, perhaps, does the age of consent (not legal) go up as the age of the partner goes up?
Most people already seem to agree that it's alright for a 16 year old to date a 15 year old, but no one will agree it's alright for a 40 year old to date a 15 year old.
Now, as a piece of maths, let's look at it mathematically, oh look it's maths seems to be flawed."My point is that what I gather from this thread Moo's reasoning is far from universal; IE people are not looking at the problem firsthand and the mathematical implications secondly but ONLY on the mathematical implications.
Sourmilk - I know couples with age gaps around 10 years, one of my sets of grandparents among them.
Now there may need to be a secondary function for those marrying the geriatric for inheritance purposes, but I don't think that's a factor in the 1/2 7 formula.
It's more like "hey guys this equation attempts to approximate something observed in real life.
I'm not old enough to experience it myself but from what I can tell, 10-20 year age gaps don't seem remotely weird or creepy for people over the age of 40 or so.
So far (I only 25), I've found the 7 x/2 formula has been remarkably accurate, expanding at about the same rate as the age range of people I would intuitively consider dating.
People who've reached 110 can pretty much do whatever the fuck they want, provided they aren't breaking any laws outside of drug ones. Because you have achieved, against all possible odds, the mindset of a normal rational human being. To reiterate something said by a certain banned person : It's like "I could've raped my girlfriend, but I didn't! Keep in mind that this formula is to find creepiness, not legality.
If someone 110 wants to continue doing coke every day, I'm not going to stop it. As long as it's not illegal, it's not creepy for anyone to date anyone?Speaking of which, you've been quite vague about said problem.
