As age increases, the age range of potential non-creepy partners widens. The same also works with infinity, but even Methuselah died once.At 26, the range of non-creepy partners is 18 years (20- to 38-year-olds). While the application of this rule actually reduces the number of potential matches further, Cueball presents it in a positive way.Hot Medellin girls are not the sole reason for this rise in tourism to “The City of Eternal Spring”, but it is definitely up there.Furthermore, I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism and prostitution in Colombia and I know that there are many strip clubs and brothels in Medellin; however, strippers and pros are not the types of girls that I date, nor is it something I would like to promote; therefore, I will not be referring to that in this post. My situation is a little different than most foreigners here in Colombia.In other words, there’s a socially acceptable maximum too, given by inverting the equation: It was only yesterday that i realised that the rule of thumb for dating people of different ages (the “half your age plus 7” rule) determines not only the lower bounds for dating but the upper bounds as well—that for each ½x 7, there is a corresponding 2(x-7).
As the graph shows, there is a lower limit and an upper limit.
According to internet lore, there’s a mathematical equation that governs the lower bound for the socially acceptable age of a potential dating partner: half your age plus 7, or, in mathematical terms, if x is your age then the lower bound is f(x) = x/2 7. if you’re 20, then the minimum socially acceptable age for a date is 17.
But it was The Ragbag who pointed out that this rule has a duality: for the date to be socially acceptable, the rule must be adhered to by your date as well.
This would place the maximum allowable age gap at a static fifteen to twenty years or so, depending on if the speaker is referring to the physical ability to have children or the socially acceptable age.
