What is your age range for dating

You can use it to test whether your current relationship is socially acceptable or to calculate what age is too young or too old for you to date.

I really liked this idea although as the person’s age increases, the less correct this equation seems.

As that article points out, you should date the person who makes you happy (regardless of age) and I made this chart out of interest for the topic, not as some kind of rule that I think should be followed without question.

Inspired by this xkcd comic, I built an interactive graph and calculator.

That leaves them plenty of women to date, now doesn’t it?

I will still speculate that given a choice they would chose a woman on the lower end of that range as opposed to the higher.

After tabulating over 50 responses I had data that while not a scientific finding indicative of actual attraction, was still pretty great. Men in their early 30s have the largest datable range of any age range of each gender.

You can see, pretty clearly, that men in my “datable range” of 30-34 dip down, drastically from men in their 20s who would start dating at an average age of 30, to wanting to date women starting at (an average age of) 21. In fact, despite the fact that the men get older their highest datable range only increases 2 years while their earliest datable age drops a little less than 9 years. Men 30-34 would happily date women from ages 21 to 40.

We don’t get older and suddenly start desiring fresh meat…nope.
