Why are people talking to a non-existant member?
Because her cutepic does exist in member photo thread!

1] Take your age.
2] Divide it by 2.
3] Add 7 to it.
4] Is he that age or older? Then you're OK.
I'm 58, so that means I can have a girlfriend 36 years old. I told my wife about this. She said I should be careful she doesn't divide me in two. And add 7 lumps on my head.

But if you still want a number:

1] Take your age.
2] Divide it by 2.
3] Add 7 to it.
4] Is he that age or older? Then you're OK.
Well I'm nearly 15 but still 14 so the youngest girl i can date is 14?

Correct.

Do you have a similair kind of thing for older girls?
The formula is universal. It works if you are the older/younger partner and of you are the male/female partner.

And it still means that, at 14, you should only be dating other 14 year olds.

P.S. Don't take this formula seriously.

I'm still looking for an imaginary boyfriend since my imaginary best friend is already taken.

.
By an imaginary gf or a real 1? I've noticed that most of men have some of these imaginary gfs that they're going to date(or are already dating)when things dont work the way they want while they're dating someone....:rofl:

While this is fine for a large range of ages, I think it needs fine tuning for the upper bounds. A hundred year old can date a 57 year old according to that. Perhaps we should replace 7 with a number proportional to your age or the square of your age.

If we replace 7 with a number proportional to your age, then the entire thing just become some fraction of your age, which is no good at the lower end (which is where we're concerned with). If we replace it instead with a number proportional to the square of your age, then at higher ages we will still run into trouble, the lower limit would eventually be larger than your age.

What's wrong with that? Do you think the 100yo and the 57yo will not be able to relate to each other? Or do you think one will steal the best years of the other's life?

I think the thread resumed "life" more because the title is interesting. And there are a lot of, um, unattached males prowling about PF.

Titles like 'Flying Saucers over New York' don't get many posts, the ones on love-lives stricken do really well. Prolly for the same reason the 'Dear Abby' column did so well for years. As did 'Sleepless in Seattle'.

Haha.. finally found a suitable place for a first post!!

In any event, I read the beginning of this thread and it strikes me as ironic that the OP friends seem like the type that would frown on dating and younger guy at that age, but getting older would probably be begging for a younger man.

My wife is older then me. Not a big deal.

Well, she is older by one day only. Which makes the deal even smaller :rofl:

I don't think so. I chased her thinking she was two years younger

That means they youngest girl he can date is 8, but are 2 year old boys really that interested in getting a girlfriend?

Good men are either taken, dead or gay!:groan:
What killes me is that most of the time the woman who's taken the good guy, doesn't realize what a gem she's got and therefor she treats him so badly.:grumpy:

*sorry for my grammatical errors*:shy:

With respect to the OP's question, I'd say sure. I generally dated older women, but also occassionally women somewhat younger by a couple of years. My wife is 6.5 years older than me. Most of my friends are older.

Hey! I'm not dead, taken, nor gay, are you saying I'm not a good man?

yep, yeah, (and I can't remember that other one used besides 'yes' from that other thread)--

I would venture a guess that some/most of the women on the PF that have stated/admitted that they are single that their PM box is full or gets full especially right after they DO admit that they are single. (or even if they don't) :tongue2: :tongue2::tongue2:
