Normal dating age range

None of these behaviors have much to do with age, although a large age difference between two people can mean different views of the world and thus the relationship.

Studies show that a one-year age difference is ideal, and that a larger age gap can definitely challenge a couple.

I try to avoid as much social interaction in my daily life as possible.And that's OK — every relationship requires at least a little bit of effort.The “creepiness rule” states that the youngest you should date is “half your age plus seven.” The less commonly used corollary is that the oldest you should date is “subtract seven from your age and double it.”According to this rule, society should accept a 50 year old man dating a 32 year old woman. Reactions ranged from “sure” to “that’s weird” to “why are you asking me this? When I flipped the genders — a 50 year old woman dating a 32 year old man — people’s responses often flipped as well.So it seems that a one-year age gap is the ideal difference in a romantic relationship.

Of course, couples with a one-year age difference can and do still go through breakups and divorces.

Of course, it's not a hard and fast rule, and there are always going to be outliers.
