17 dating 22 year old dating nigeria stella adams
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?With some quick math, the rule provides a minimum and maximum partner age based on your actual age that, if you choose to follow it, you can use to guide your dating decisions. It lets you chart acceptable age discrepancies that adjust over the years. Researchers Buunk and colleagues (2000) asked men and women to identify the ages they would consider when evaluating someone for relationships of different levels of involvement.I stated all that so no one thinks I'm some heartless monster. I've had friends go through this and when I was that age I would have thought about it, but it's hard when two people are in totally different places in their lives, one is in the last year of high school, one has finished college or going into grad school.If it was a 19 year old and a 23 year old I think that's a little bit more realistic, but it's hard to say since I don't know you two.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.I made it clear to her That I'm not having sex with her till shes 18 and so far shes agreed to it.I think if her parents allow it, then I don't think it's bad. Her parents loved me, but I ended up breaking it up after 9 months.
In my opinion I'd rather be single than date someone who is either fresh out of high school or still in high school.
She's a teenager, your a legal (drinking age) adult.
This is one of those cases where I think age does matter.
Grrr I'm sorry I had wrote a rather lengthy post but for some reason it won't show all of it.
Anyways is it so wrong to date someone in my category as long as no sex is involved?
