Appropriate age to start dating
So the question begs to be asked: is this formula accurate and does it really help people find love that is right for them?
In fact, the question surrounding how old is too old or how young is too young has come up so often throughout modern history that researchers have conducted studies to find out what the acceptable age range for dating actually is.
For example, if you are 30 and your partner is 40, what does life look like while they are retired and you are still working?
What does it look like if you want to have children closer to 40 and they are about to turn 50?
For example, if you start dating someone who is 20 when you are 26 years old, they are within the acceptable age range, according to the rule, but it is the very limit of your minimum age range.
But when you are 30, and they are 24, your new age range is 22, and they are well above that range. If you love each other, age doesn’t matter, but it is a good guideline when you are thinking about a future together, or if you care at all what society thinks.
