I'd say so..but it must be adjusted the younger you are, obviously.

A huge difference between a 30-year old and a 22-year old in terms of maturity...and a little odd seeing a 25-year old with a sophomore in college.

I remember being 25 and I was once invited to a party with the majority being 18-20 year old "kids" and just wanting leave after 20 minutes.

I'm 38 and would have no problem going 19.

It's still too generous in my opinion. It says me, a grad student (22) could date a high schooler (18). Too generous.

LOL.

Really, though, I think this is too generous, at least at my age. I'm 33 and dating a 25 year-old right now. Too young for anything serious. Can't imagine a 23. Well, I can. But you see what I'm saying.

Sounds like he's saying no matter how old he is, 12 years old and up is A-OK

That's not a big deal. Loosen up.

22 and 18 could also be college freshman and senior, which isn't that weird. It gets too generous as you get older though; I'm 24 and can't imagine seriously dating a 19 year old. On the extreme end, it says an 80 year old could date a 47 year old.

Date women and not girls and you won't need an algorithm.

A straight "my age - 7" probably works best for me.

If you were 19, would you go for a 38-year-old? Just curious.

I would. Age is just a number. Relationships are really a case-by-case basis, not something that you should ever make a rule-of-thumb for.

This would probably mean that most of you are dating girls aged 14-16.

There is nothing wrong with that.
