17 dating a 24 year old
Based on my experiences and being a female I am voting that the response above seems like the best answer. Between 16-18 and 19 are really significant transitioning years with significantly different major life changes going on ex. So for a 24-year-old, the upper age limit would be 34 (17 * 2). How well does the rule reflect scientific evidence for age preferences?
For rule-related involvement (relationships), 60-year-old men are stating that the minimum acceptable age is around 40, which does map much more closely to the rule’s predictions.According to the rule, for example, a 30-year-old should be with a partner who is at least 22, while a 50-year-old’s dating partner must be at least 32 to not attract (presumed) social sanction. Does it match our scientific understanding of age-related preferences for dating? People reported distinct age preferences for marriage; a serious relationship; falling in love; casual sex; and sexual fantasies. Based on the figures Buunk and colleagues (2000) provided (and thus the numbers are only informed approximations), I replotted their data superimposing the max and min age ranges defined by the half-your-age-plus-7 rule.Now we can see how well the rule corresponds with people’s reported acceptable ages.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads. If a 20 year old college guy meets a 17 year old high school girl and starts dating her would you call this cradle robbing or is it no bid deal? It is not so different from a 40 year old dating a 35 year old. I pretty sure I was dating a 17 year old when I was 20. Now I'm 23 and I would have no problem meeting someone who is 19. Your age gap tolerance will probably go up as you get older. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.
