Rules for age differences in dating

Rated 4.3/5 based on 880 customer reviews

I almost forgot about the Princeton Mom until last month, when international headlines went nuts over the new French president elect and his wife.The older-woman-younger-man combo is significantly more rare (appearing in less than one-third of all conversations), and in only 12% of these is the woman at least five years older. For instance, according to the above, a 21-yr-old could date a 35-yr-old, but the 35-yr-old shouldn't date below 24.5. The problem with this is that you get different ranges of age depending on which person you're considering.

When I was a junior in college, a woman called “The Princeton Mom” wrote into our school newspaper telling undergraduate women to “Find a husband on campus before you graduate.”“Forget about having it all, or not having it all, leaning in or leaning out,” she said.

Or really, 2y - 14, if x is the age of the older person and y is the age of the younger person...

presuming you want to just switch the formula around and not make up a whole new formula.

A 40-year-old woman will have better luck messaging a 25-year-old man than a 55-year-old one, according to the data.

And a 30-year-old man is more likely to respond to a message from a 50-year-old woman than a message from any other age group.
