My parents and family don't like the age difference and thats all that they seem to focus on.
I was having breakfast the other day with a friend who was giving dating advice to his son.
For purposes of his anonymity, I am going to call just call him "Son." My friend said, "Son, you're 18 years old, so I am going to tell you how you date.
Since you are 18 years old, you are allowed to date a woman half your age plus seven." Son looked at him and said, "Alright, Dad.
It is ok to have and look for a better life, but money shouldn’t be the main motivation in the relationship because your economic situation may change and you want someone which will stay with you through thick and thin.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. One thing to keep in mind is that people change A LOT in their 20's (didn't you? I can't imagine having married anyone in my early 20's, I have such a different sense of self and different desires in my late 20's. Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he's 14 years old (because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is 14).So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
