I was having breakfast the other day with a friend who was giving dating advice to his son.
Some of us limit our potential partners to a very specific age range because that’s what we think we’ll be attracted to.
I came up with this: The distance between y = x and the asymptote is about 10 years, meaning a 40 year old can date a 33 year old, but a 50 year old can only date a 40 year old. I mean, I agree that the forumla is flawed, but I disagree on where the flaws start.
I think the flaws start well out of what normal human lifespan is.. If someone who's 110 wants to date someone who's 62, I'm sure as fuck not going to stop them.
People who've reached 110 can pretty much do whatever the fuck they want, provided they aren't breaking any laws outside of drug ones. As in, determining if the older party is acting in a potentially predatory manor based on the naivety of the younger.
If someone 110 wants to continue doing coke every day, I'm not going to stop it. So the fact that the range gets pretty large starting somewhere around is based on people past their mid-30s having enough life under their belt to make good decisions for themselves.
