Since you are 18 years old, you are allowed to date a woman half your age plus seven." Son looked at him and said, "Alright, Dad.
You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.
It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.
Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he's 14 years old (because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is 14).
So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.

Two years ago they got married, in December they are expecting their first child.I live in the US, so I have a hang up about 18, but a very good friend of mine was approx. It's a rough age gap to deal with, depending on your plans for school and where your partner is in his life. Tell us ways to think about the age difference in a great way! Given that, please try to remember what I've said here about the power dynamic and holding her back. ;-)If you really like her, you're going to go for this relationship regardless of what anyone says.
