If you like my words sign up for my newsletter, Airport Tattoo Parlour: With the 90 yr old and the 52 yr old, we're not giving a formula for who we "let" people date, we're describing the point at which a relationship crosses the line from "normal" into weird, as viewed by society in general, and I'm sure most people I know would consider that totally weird.No one is taking this formula seriously on this forum any place except, surprise, this one thread taking it seriously.I mean, I agree that the forumla is flawed, but I disagree on where the flaws start. So this is kinda unclear to me..all of you saying "what's wrong with a 120 year old dating a 40 year old?I think the flaws start well out of what normal human lifespan is.. If someone who's 110 wants to date someone who's 62, I'm sure as fuck not going to stop them. " or whatever think it's not creepy for a, say, 65 year old to date an 18 year old (or whatever you think the age of consent is, whether 16 or 22)?And I think that if a 90 year old can land a 52 year old, fuckin' let'em. But then i also don't have a problem with a 50 year old dating a 20 year old, so maybe my view is just skewed in general.People who've reached can pretty much do whatever the fuck they want, provided they aren't breaking any laws outside of drug ones.I came up with this: The distance between y = x and the asymptote is about 10 years, meaning a 40 year old can date a 33 year old, but a 50 year old can only date a 40 year old. I mean, I agree that the forumla is flawed, but I disagree on where the flaws start.I think the flaws start well out of what normal human lifespan is.. If someone who's 110 wants to date someone who's 62, I'm sure as fuck not going to stop them.
A webcomic of dating pool graph, sarcasm, math, and language.I was trying to make a better rule and I got this: I'm just asking if creepiness is irrelevant to the age, as long as it's past the age of consent.We got into a very deep and touchy discussion about divorce, which is pretty heavy for a math class. But what i find an issue here is that at least some of the people dating challenge man in this thread do not acknowledge that fact.People who've reached 110 can pretty much do whatever the fuck they want, provided they aren't breaking any laws outside of drug ones. As in, determining if the older party is acting in a potentially predatory manor based on the naivety of the younger.If someone 110 wants to continue doing coke every day, I'm not going to stop it. So the fact that the range gets pretty large starting somewhere around is based on people past their mid-30s having enough life under their belt to make good decisions for themselves.
