In the beginning I only thought about teaching Mia ways to calm down and convince herself about her own abilities,” Bennett said. During those eight weeks, it wasn’t uncommon for her parents to see me around her, but as we began to grow closer, it was her mom that noticed first and confronted us.” “It wasn’t as bad as you think,” Thompson said about her parents’ reaction to dating a college student.
The problem is that both the equation "y = x", which just maps age over time, and "y = x / 2 7", the dating-range formula, are each linear, an so at a certain point the lines grow unrealistically far apart, like where a 60 year old can date a 37 year old.
When thinking about it, I figured what you'd want is some kind of curve that had an asymptote parallel to y = x, that way ages wouldn't become unrealistically far apart. What's wrong with a 60 year old dating a 37 year old?
It’s too bad O-Town was hit by a bus."He was the only "younger guy" I’d ever gone out with, by about six years, and I used to ask my friends obsessively if it was "weird." But they just thought it was strange that all of our conversations could start a potential death rumor about Ray Liotta. Ultimately, it wasn’t that this guy was young; it was that I had absolutely nothing to say to him that wasn’t "There," "Not there," "NOT there, this isn’t anybody’s birthday," or "Slow down, Usain Bolt, who incidentally is A lot of us have found ourselves attracted to somebody younger or older, and have been reluctant to act on it because of some perceived weirdness or taboo.
Some of us limit our potential partners to a very specific age range because that’s what we think we’ll be attracted to.
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. As in, determining if the older party is acting in a potentially predatory manor based on the naivety of the younger.
If someone 110 wants to continue doing coke every day, I'm not going to stop it. So the fact that the range gets pretty large starting somewhere around is based on people past their mid-30s having enough life under their belt to make good decisions for themselves.I came up with this: The distance between y = x and the asymptote is about 10 years, meaning a 40 year old can date a 33 year old, but a 50 year old can only date a 40 year old. I mean, I agree that the forumla is flawed, but I disagree on where the flaws start.I think the flaws start well out of what normal human lifespan is.. If someone who's 110 wants to date someone who's 62, I'm sure as fuck not going to stop them.I know many smoking-hot middle-aged people who are emotional teenagers.I know many brilliant, mature people who aren’t old enough to rent a car.I mean, I agree that the forumla is flawed, but I disagree on where the flaws start. So this is kinda unclear to me..all of you saying "what's wrong with a 120 year old dating a 40 year old?
