A friend of mine felt her partner was objectifying her due to her young age.In her words: “” This is an extreme example, but I am grateful she brought it up.Apps and websites have been a major catalyst in the dating community, and the doors have opened for all demographics. It is an exciting time for experimenting in dating.of determining a socially-acceptable age difference in partners goes something like this: half your age plus 7 (40 = 20 7 = 27) to define the minimum age of a partner and your age minus 7 times 2 (40 = 33 * 2 = 60) to define the maximum age of a partner.Generally, I feel like 10-20 years junior or senior is considered “appropriate” by our society’s standards.If Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher can get together (they started dating when she was 41 and he was 25) and movies like are nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, surely the taboo of having an age difference has gone out the window.
He taught me about life and exposed me to stimulating situations I would not have been able to experience alone (at the time).I asked my peers if they had ever been in a relationship with a significant age difference (for reference I defined significant as 10 years), and I was surprised to find that every friend I asked and some of my Twitter followers said they had. It’s a good balance.”The last response really stood out to me, dynamic being the key word here.There will always be ups and downs in a relationship, but when there is a significant age gap, this aspect can be amplified.Pete Davidson, 25, and Kate Beckingsale, 45, are the newest couple to experience this, with Davidson defending their relationship on Saturday Night Live by providing a laundry list of famous couples to come before them. I had to dig him out of the MGTOW [men going their own way] mindset, but he was so far gone it eventually drove me away. It was a very positive experience and he set the bar with future relationships and taught me what relationships should actually be like. I’m dating someone 23 years older than me, and I think it works out because he’s down to explore millennial culture and I’m somewhat familiar with the things he grew up with.But, are we all experimenting with people outside our immediate age bracket? The sex is amazing because he’s had practice and I’m curious/open.
