Surveys abound, including one by which puts the ideal age gap at four years and four months, with the man being the oldest in the relationship.
A new Elite Singles’ survey of 450,000 online daters reveals that men and women have different age limits when it comes to love.
“The best choice for a woman is to marry a man of exactly the same age; an older husband shortens her life, and a younger one even more so.”Odd couples abound, but you can bet you’ll eventually being playing nursemaid, says Debra Mac Leod.
Age difference and dating
Film director Sam Taylor-Wood, 47, is married to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 24.
Last week she told those who continue to judge them to “f—k off.”No one minds their business when it comes to ageless love.
A common rule of thumb, at least on the internet, is that it’s okay to be interested in someone “half your age plus seven” years.
According to this rule, it would not be creepy for a 30 year old to date a 22 year-old, but an 18 year-old would be off-limits.
Women’s tolerance of older men decreases with age, reports the survey.
