So, many people wonder, what is your age limit, to date that is...
Is he too old? too young? but when is it okay old and when is it TOO old?

Here is a simple way of calculating your age range, and proven to be quite useful and accurate.

your age / 2 + 7 = the youngest age you can date.

(ex) your age=30 (not that I am, just that its a simple number to calculate mind you!) than 30 / 2 + 7 = 22... so if you're 30 you can't date anyone younger than 22.

That person's age / 2 + 7 = your age ==> (your age - 7) * 2 = your upper age limit

(ex) sticking to our 30 example, (30- 7) * 2 = 46

so if you're 30 you can date someone between 22 and 46.
Easy ain't it?
Notice how your range will proportionally become larger as you grow older.
[range = 3/2*(yourage) - 21]
There are also good things in life as you grow older...

Ofcourse at the end of the day, if you love that person, and if the sex is good, go for it no matter what anyone saids about anything.

Post-script: Seriously guys... I mean this formula is for people over 16 which I think should be the age you can start dating.

What if i am twelve? the youngest person i should date is 13 (12/2=6+7=13) and the oldest is 10 (12-7=5*2=10)... thats doesnt sound right to me... although what do i know about math? im only 12

The formula is a line equation, so although it gets exponentially bigger, it'll also get to a point where it equals nothing, and then starts going back up in reverse ;) Hence why the formula doesn't work for you. Besides that, you shouldn't be dating at 12 :P

The reason why the math doesn't work if you are twelve is because you shouldn't date anyone at your age, young lady. Now go to your room. ;)

I'm 18, does that make it okay to date a nine year old?

ur doing it wrong, 18/2 = 9, 9+7=16

here in france, we have a different rule: take your age, multiply it by 0 and add 12!

If that is the case I assume that Berlusconi must have some french blood going through his vains. :-)

how fast do cows age?

30 and 22 is a big age gap. If you're under 25 you shouldn't be dating anyone who's seven years older than you or more.

Guys. postscript: only use this formula after the appropriate dating age, which I personally think is 18 plus.

I just found an xkcd comic about this formula and guess what- it was written AFTER my blog! ha!

I'm about to be 14 in 1 month so 14/2= 7. And 7+7 equals 14 so i cant date anyone younger than 14. X/2 + 7. So once again I get 14. 14/2 = 7, and 7 + 7 = 14. So i can't date anyone younger than 14 or older than 14. That is a very limited range. Also, since this formula is a simple line equation you must be > or equal to the age of 15 for it to work properly.

re last anonymous: did you not see the last remark about how one should NOT date before the age of 16?? so here is my advice to you - stop dating and go study young man! :-P

To be honest if you're 12 you shouldn't even be thinking about dating or anything to do with it..

I am an 18 year old, currently dating a 28 year old. Buuuut,(18*2)-7=29. And (28/2)+7=21... I see some conflicting reasoning here.

insatiable hee said...

dear last anonymous.... the reason why you are confused is because you are doing the calculations wrong.
look at the equations again and get back to me....

I'm 13 Is it ok for me to date someone that is 15? I can't figure out the formula.

If that's the case then hmu

Im confused. Not by the equatio; that works fine. What I'm confused about is the amount of young teens being told they shouldn't be dating? Does dating mean something different where you live? Here in the UK it means 'to go out with' or 'to court' etc. etc. Are you talking about sexual dating, serious relationship dating, or general dating? I assume sexual, of course, but I think that this should be more clearly stated.

So at 40, the age range is 27 to 66. My parents are 63. No way in hell would I even even consider someone over 50. Ewwww!

That's always going to be 12

My age is 16, and the youngest I can date is 15, the oldest is 18. This actually kinda helped, because my boyfriend just turned 18, and I'm about to be 17.
