Men’s preferred minimum partner age: Let’s start with minimum age preferences reported by heterosexual men.I'm doing a survey on what people think is acceptable in terms of age range for dating males. Jared Leto is, crushingly, out of my age range (39), but let’s be honest.What is the acceptable minimum age for your own (and others’) dating partners?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.
Here is a simple way of calculating your age range, and proven to be quite useful and accurate.(ex) your age=30 (not that I am, just that its a simple number to calculate mind you! so if you're 30 you can't date anyone younger than 22. That person's age / 2 7 = your age ==There are also good things in life as you grow older...What is the youngest girl a 15 year old male can date? What is the youngest girl a 15 year old male can date? The utility of this equation is that it lets you chart acceptable age discrepancies that adjust over the years. Let's examine it: How well does the rule reflect scientific evidence for age preferences?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? 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.
