Rule for men on the age of women to date:

Rule for men on the age of women to date:

Guys, wondering if that girl is too young to date? Here is the rule to follow. Never date a women younger than half your age +7 years. So if you're 20, it's okay to date a girl 17. If you're 60, stay with women 37 and old. Got the idea?

Update: May 14, 2009.
Besides, this is a rule for men. And we all know men are slime-balls when it comes to dating younger women. This is a rule-of-thumb to set a minimum age.

Update: May 14, 2009.
I said DATE not have sex with. So the age of consent has nothing to do with it.

Sure, that might work for an affair.

But if you're talking about actually dating, that's just silly. What on earth could a 60-year-old man have in common with a 37-year-old woman?

Not much.

I always heard that's how to calculate the "appropriate" age of a woman a man has an affair with.

Thats a good rule but I'm not sure (convinced) that if I felt good about someone else it wouldn't really matter what their age.........I mean in the last week before I got all my hair chopped off I saw women looking at me with an eagle eye........bored house wives.

So...a 20 year old guy would just DATE a 17 year old girl and NOT have sex with her? In what alternate universe?

FEW 37 year old women would date a 60 year old. Very few and most likely only for money in most cases. I'll be 34 this year so I'm getting close to that age and there is no way I would date someone my DAD's age. My boyfriend is 6 years older and that's fine. But 23 years older?
