Xkcd dating pool equation
(Also known as the "Rule of 7")The Standard Creepiness Rule is an equation that determines the youngest possible age of a potential date that is deemed to be socially acceptable and not creepy.
It was mentioned in comic 314 of the web-comic XKCD.
(And now we see why the last panel of the XKCD comic above applies so well to me…) Sure enough, if we overlay Rudder’s Ok Cupid data over the first chart, we see that men follow the rule almost exactly.
There are a few spots in the mid-30’s where men seem willing to dip ever so slightly past the safe zone of non-creepiness, but that trend quickly ends by their 40’s.
No one is taking this formula seriously on this forum any place except, surprise, this one thread taking it seriously.
Age difference dating in, determining if the older party is acting in a potentially predatory manor based on the naivety of the younger.
You haven't done anything dating pool graph of a prize. It's like "I could've raped my girlfriend, but I didn't! I have been informed that this is called writing a book.
Which is full of people saying this formula is a joke.
For me, at least, dating 10 years past your age is a little bit odd. As long as it's not illegal, it's not creepy for anyone to date anyone?
And I think that if a 90 year old can land a 52 year old, fuckin' let'em. But then i also don't have a problem with a 50 year old dating a 20 year old, so maybe my view is just skewed in general.
