Similarly, in his autobiography, George Arnold Escher (1843-1939, father of famous artist M. Escher) claimed that when he was looking for a wife ca.1880, he thought that the ideal ages for husband and wife at marriage would be if the woman's age was half the husband's age plus 10.

I was having breakfast the other day with a friend who was giving dating advice to his son.
Graph of the Half-age-plus-seven rule ("never date anyone under half your age plus 7"), which claims to dictate what age disparity between two people is acceptable in dating/romantic/intimate relationships during the late 20th century / early 21st century (called the "Standard creepiness rule" in the xkcd webcomic).
According to this rule, the age of the younger person should not be less than half the age of the older person plus seven years, so that (for example) no one older than 65 should be in a relationship with anyone younger than 39 and a half, no one older than 22 should be in a relationship with anyone younger than 18, and no one under 14 years of age should be in a relationship at all...
From another point of view, the chart can be interpreted as saying that there should not be an age disparity of as much as five years unless the younger person has an age of 19 or more, a ten-year disparity should exist only if the younger person has an age of 24 or more, and a twenty-year disparity should occur only if the younger person has an age of 34 or more.
(And people only slightly older than 14 should only be involved with those almost exactly the same age as themselves.) To read the chart, go to the position along the x-axis which corresponds to your age, and the green range (between the black and red lines) directly above that position corresponds to the range of your partner's ages which is deemed acceptable by the rule.
Until about a month ago, when my friend's mom (while volunteering at an event) started talking to me about people being "too young for each other" and quoted the formula. Younger than me even by a year has never worked for me. But a lot of other things factored into that, he had to be done with having kids.....cause I'm done, one woman has to and needs to be enough for him (around here hahahah that's a rare find) read RARE not ALLI'm trying to be a bit more open minded about age-I used to say Id never date a younger man..as I get older, they seem...yummier?
So not it's making me wonder how many people have actually ever heard of this before (although I'm sure on a dating website, more people have). I have met some really immature 50 year old men and women and some bright mature 25 year olds. LOLActually, to me its more important that we are at the same stage in life, IE kids are older, or none at all, and they cant want anymore-cause Im done with that too.
For instance, this formula should not be used to justify a 60 year old man dating a 37 year old female.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. It's really more about social acceptability rather than what age you "should" date.
In its first known appearances (in the book Her Royal Highness Woman by Max O'Rell, "The little shepherd of Kingdom Come" by John Fox, and the 1951 play The Moon is Blue by F.
Hugh Herbert), it's stated or implied that at the beginning of a relationship or marriage, the woman's age "is supposed to be half the man's age, plus seven", which gives a different (asymmetrical) interpretation to the rule.
For purposes of his anonymity, I am going to call just call him "Son." My friend said, "Son, you're 18 years old, so I am going to tell you how you date.
