A few days ago, I was watching a YouTube video about the real age of Ash Ketchum from Pokemon out of curiosity. In the video, They have mentioned a actual math equation called “The Dating Equation” or “The Dating Age Formula”. When I heard this, I was like ” What the fuck is the dating equation?”. So I did some investigation which I will link some of the sources for you to check out below and here is the result of it and the equation itself for you to see:
What is the Dating Equation
The dating equation is a formula(It’s even considered as a rule) used to help people find out what is the minimum age they can look for in a partner as well as the maximum age. It’s to help determine what age is considered appropriate to be in a relationship with. An example would be that it’s OK that a 30 year old to be going out with a 23 year old but it is not OK if it was a 30 year old with a 18 year old cause it might be considered creepy.
Should anyone use this Equation
FUCK NO. This is considered old science for some of you and to follow this equation would be a waste of time. I got 2 reasons why you should not use this dumb equation: Common Sense and Age of Consent
Who ever created this equation, I get that they are trying to help but you have to be a idiot or a pedophile not to know what is the legal age in your state or country nowadays especially with the use of the internet. You don’t need a equation to find out what is the minimum age you can go out with a girl. The 2 reasons I have mentioned goes hand in hand cause everyone knows that you should not go out with someone that is less than 18 years old (Depending on the country or state on the age of consent) cause then you can get into trouble with the law and be marked a sexual predator. Another thing to mention, there is nothing wrong with you going out with someone that is younger then you just as long as they are of legal age. There is nothing wrong with a 30 year old guy going out with a 18 year old girl and if other people find it creepy, fuck them. I have seen girls going out with older guys all of the time and that’s because they LOVE older guys. You can even see this from famous male celebrities like George Clooney when he used to be with Stacy Keibler Steven Bauer who is currently with his 20 year old girlfriend (they started dating when she was 18).
Don’t use this equation. You don’t need it at all. Once again, as long as you know the age of consent of your area and you stay within that legal age (For example, no more then 18 is the youngest you can go) and use some common sense, you will be fine. Don’t give a shit if people judge you for the age difference, as long as your happy, that’s all that matters.
