As long as you find someone that loves and respects you the way you want to be loved and respected, then youre already lightyears ahead of most people. But if youre willing to take a chance on a man twice your age, then by all means, open your heart and let him into yours. And if it doesnt work out, dont worry.
Can you date someone double your age?
This rule states that by dividing your own age by two and then adding seven you can find the socially acceptable minimum age of anyone you want to date. So if youre a 24-year-old, you can feel free to be with anyone who is at least 19 (12 + 7) but not someone who is 18.
How big an age difference is acceptable when dating?
According to the rule, you divide your age by two and then add seven to calculate the socially acceptable minimum age for a partner. For example, if youre 32, you can date someone as young as 23 while remaining in the realm of socially acceptable, according to the calculation.
