When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.I can see problems like for example she cant drink (legally) and i like to go out a lot with my friends so that could cause a problem amongst other things. I was having breakfast the other day with a friend who was giving dating advice to his son.To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
You can date someone as young as half your age plus seven years? It's no wonder that so many women feel that men their own age are too immature.
It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.
You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.
And that means I can date a woman who is 16." From where did this ridiculous rule come?
