Xkcd creepy dating nelly and kelly dating
This seems arbitrary, but if you crunch your age into that equation, I’m willing to bet that you wouldn’t even consider dating someone under that age. ) If we plot the Standard Creepiness Rule out for men: (Note that you can easily just change the axis labels in the above chart and it works just as well for women.) It just so happens that Christian Rudder released his book Dataclysm last week, which features a chart showing us the age range that men search on Ok Cupid for when looking for women to date.One of my first thoughts when I saw this chart was: Do men on Ok Cupid follow the Standard Creepiness Rule?Now there may need to be a secondary function for those marrying the geriatric for inheritance purposes, but I don't think that's a factor in the 1/2 7 formula.And I also like that the current formula does work at the bottom edge of the range where anything that is actually "dating" typically starts; basically "13 is too young, and 14-15 should keep more or less in their grade level."What's wrong with a 60 year old dating a 37 year old?More so I don't think that the age of the other party(/parties) are that relevant.I see why there's a need for some sort of (legislative/social/whatever) barrier, and I see no better way to address the problem; but the point is that it doesn't work for everyone! Compared to /b/ you are almost flawless This is what is wrong with this fora.Please keep in mind that I'm not putting forward a point of view or attacking anyone's elses.I'm just asking if creepiness is irrelevant to the age, as long as it's past the age of consent.
If someone 110 wants to continue doing coke every day, I'm not going to stop it. As long as it's not illegal, it's not creepy for anyone to date anyone?Another interesting trend is how men aren’t even close to reaching the upper bound of the zone of non-creepiness.According to the Standard Creepiness Rule, it’d be perfectly fine for a 30-year-old man to date a 45-year-old woman, but apparently 30-year-old men are already struggling with the idea of dating a 37-year-old!(And now we see why the last panel of the XKCD comic above applies so well to me…) Sure enough, if we overlay Rudder’s Ok Cupid data over the first chart, we see that men follow the rule almost exactly.There are a few spots in the mid-30’s where men seem willing to dip ever so slightly past the safe zone of non-creepiness, but that trend quickly ends by their 40’s.
