Good dating age gap maria shriver dating

To be clear, not knowing who The Fugees are or simply missing someone's references doesn't make you a bad person.

It makes you ignorant of great music, and definitely not a match.

For example, generally, you try to avoid people with two first names or those who abbreviate the word probably as “probs.” But you never know; that one awful abbreviator could be your soulmate.

So, I'm proposing this "8-year rule" in dating as an absolute.

The late Tony Randall was 75 when he married his 24-year-old wife. Playboy founder Hugh Heffner has several girlfriends, most of them half a century his junior. So if 40 and 27 are acceptable, one could say that 41 and 26 are close enough.Playgirl exists as well, and Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Collins, Martha Raye, and Cher all dated men decades younger than they were. Eliminate the touchy-feely stuff about age being “just a number.” That is what people say to justify behavior that they know is problematic. For every person saying “just go for it and be happy,” there are realistic considerations. Yet soon after that, the slippery slope becomes 44 and 24, which can lead to Lolita situations and other felonies. If a man is 40, is dating a pair of 20-year-olds equivalent to dating one 40-year-old? From a brag and go high-five your friends standpoint, yes.For one thing, most people do not want their relationship to be the equivalent of gossip tabloid fodder among their own social circles. If the man is a billionaire, it comes with the territory.I could've saved a ton more money, and essentially, my social life as it is wouldn't be any different.So to be clear, I'm not dumping on anyone who still lives with their folks.
