NOTE: I would never interfere and am not saying they SHOULDN'T date, just that I find it uncomfortable for some reason.I am asking what people think not for a lecture on whether I should be judging I don't think it's outrageous at all.Nothing 'wrong' about it IMO, in fact we couldn't be better suited. I have never had a happy relationship with a guy my own age. He looks at least ten years younger than he actually is, and he thought I was rather older than I am. We had a connection instantly and hit it off straight away.
You can see that men are basically operating by the rule for minimum age preferences for marital relationships (blue bars) and serious dating relationships (yellow bars).
Those age preferences consistently hover around the values denoted by the rule (the black line).
The rule overestimates the perceived acceptability of men becoming involved with older women.
Men do not show a linear increase in maximum age preference that matches the rule’s predictions.
Having said that, none of my relationships have worked out...
