People are always asking me if the age difference between them and someone they are thinking about dating would be socially acceptable. How much is too much? As far as I'm concerned, as long as the two people are adults and they want to go out, then who cares! If you are concerned about these things, though, I have figured out a way for you to find the answer.
A few years ago I developed a formula for figuring out socially acceptable age differences between (adult) couples. It works every time!
Try it out for yourself:
STEP 1: Subtract the difference in age
STEP 2: Divide the difference by the younger person's age
STEP 3: Multiply by 100.
*If the number you get is lower than 40, then the age difference is likely socially acceptable.
*If it's bigger than 40, it is probably not socially acceptable.
For example, if one is 40 and the other is 30, the difference would be 10. Divided by 30 and times 100 would be 33. Under 40. Voila--socially acceptable....
