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.To engage with an older guy is to peek inside a different point-of-view on life.So, now that I've glorified older men enough (don't worry, young, 20-something lads, your day will come…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.You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.
I wish men would stop complaining about the way women act and then go home and treat their daughters with exactly the same traits that makes them into the women they complain about all the time. I have buddies that has daughters that age and God helps the jerk off at 19 who thinks about asking their daughters out, they are treading where angels fear to go. I must say though, one of the first posters who posted that she would report her son and his girlfriend to the police if they were to have sexual relations with a 1 year age gap is amusing.It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.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"?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.
