Dating age range for men
The adage, "half your age plus seven," describes the rule for men who want to date younger women, but when it comes to male dating patterns, the assumption that younger is better may not be true.A new study suggests that most men prefer to date someone closer to their own age.However, it doesn’t represent women’s preferences at all.
Homosexual and bisexual men also followed the same rule of thumb, opting for partners their own age, rather than much older or younger love interests.

He was a nice looking man with a full head of white hair, and he seemed to have style and class. ”Wow, calling yourself a life coach without any training gives life coaches a bad name. Who would have thought that a total stranger who lives an hour away once met my ex? Well, this supposedly energetic 70-year-old could barely move his neck, because he had recently had a few bones fused up in there.

If I told him I was a dating coach, we’d probably end up speaking about bad dates, what’s wrong with singles today, and how crazy it can be to date after divorce. So I told him I’m a life coach, which is the truth. I want someone to fall in love with me for who I am, not who I know.◊♦◊When we got up to leave, he noticed my black motorcycle-style boots with the silver chains. You won’t be surprised to learn that I never saw Harvey again, and it obviously had nothing to do with his age. Cast a wide net on things that don’t matter much, like age and height.
