This can vary from transcribing a movie, to identifying an item on a receipt, to taking a survey about hypothetical romantic relationships.
Within a few days I got 274 responses: 110 male, 163 female, and one person that “preferred not to say”.
One thing is clear — nothing brings out more opinions than other people’s love lives.
Buunk & colleagues wrote a paper investigating how factors such as age, gender, and type of romantic relationship (casual, serious, marriage, etc.) affect the age limits people place on potential romantic partners.
You can date someone as young as half your age plus seven years? It's no wonder that so many women feel that men their own age are too immature.
It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.
As per "Half Your Age Plus 7" relationship rule, the age of the younger person you date should not be less than half the age of the older person plus 7 years; and the age of the older person you date should not be more than your age minus 7 and doubled it.
The researchers approached random people in public and asked them to imagine themselves in a romantic relationship with an attractive person of the opposite sex .
The researchers then presented different types of relationships- sexual fantasies, casual affairs, long-term relationships, marriage — and asked the participants what the minimum and maximum age of their partner is for each scenario.
Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he's 14 years old (because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is 14).
So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
