What's the prevailing thought on age diferential in a real relationship ? Like no one night thing, no short term fling but if the goal is real life partner. Friend of mine said divide age of older participant by 1/2 and add 7 years and that's the minimum age of the younger parson in the partnership. I trust her judgement. But she doesn't controll who shows up on my radar or who indicates an interest. By that scale minimum I can accept is 36. I don't have any fetish for young women it's just that I've had a young gal showing interest. I'm inclined not to encourage but I'm only human and man she's smart and a stunner. I've known her dad for a few years, but I only met her at her dad's wedding a while back. I went to high school with her new step mom. Her dad said...yeah she had liked older men, she's a grown woman, she makes her own decesions... I'm like...jeez man thanks, I'm looking for reasons not to open this can of worms ! But she's so beautiful.
