Standard Creepiness Rule - Don't date under: (Age/2)+7
Heh.

when I saw that I did the math, and realized that it means, by my calculations that I could date someone who was like 16, which I think is still creepy, frankly.

hell, I often find dating people who are my age creepy, but then, maybe I'm just a weirdo...

yes, scary. I'm an only child and have always blended in better with people who are a little older...

and I think we've both proven our ability to do rudimentary math. :)

Actually, I was going to point out that 22/2=11+7=18, with 21 we get 17.5 but I would probably round up.

But, yes, this is the standard creepiness rule and so doesn't take into account the old souls, the world-weary, etc. :)

I *am* allowed to date 20 year olds? What a load off...

Barely. And still not if they are one of your students. ;)

Well, half my age is still jailbait, so at least it would only be creepy instead of creepy and illegal.

You've heard this before, right? I used to quote it at my ex whenever he whined, although we'd heard it as +6, which would have made his lower limit 23.5 at the time. Which I cleared. Barely.

(Well, not whenEVER he whined. Whenever he whined about that.)

I've heard something like it tossed around before, sure. But never seen it written out I don't think.

...

Meaning that you didn't clear it by this standard.

Actually, I would have JUST made it by +7.
