    OK so here's the graph...

    Good to know that IF I was looking...my low end is 36 and death is the upper end.
    What do you think???

    If they're of adult age according to law, and they are alive, they are in the ballpark for me. What society thinks about my relationships with other consenting adults cares little to me. Otherwise, I'd be celibate or straight.

    You think 37 is old? At 61 myself, they've got my upper limit so high I'd have to date him using a ouija board. (Paraphrased line stolen from Bette White's SNL monologue)

    So, according to that chart, my socially acceptable range is 20-40.

    No I don't think 37 is old. I do think its too old for ME! But still lots of 37y old men, and even older still look very hot!

    I think it's important to follow assinine rules with no basis whatsoever, especially if they look all mathematical and such.

    I use formulas, graphs, tables, and charts to tell me how to act, what to think, who to date, what to wear, how to vote, which parties to go to, hairy versus smooth, and pretty much everything.

    Cause, I mean, it's really important to avoid being "socially unacceptable," right? Isn't that why we're put here on Earth? To behave just like everyone thinks we should?

    * goes back to graphing his formula for becoming more "straight acting" *

    I actually used to have a personal guideline, that I followed until my current partner. I called it my "5 up, 5 down" rule, meaning I tried to only date guys who were no more than 5 years younger or older than me. And I started doing this at 46, when I came out and began dating guys for the first time.

    My current partner is more than 5 years older than me, but his exception isn't a problem for me, since it was always more my own guideline than an inflexible rule. Still, it worked well for me, and the few times I violated it, mainly by going much younger, did not result in happy experiences.

    I'm much luckier with someone close to my own generation, or who knows it as well as I do. And I in turn am able to know his. Then we have so much more in common, so much to talk about, so much to share, so similar in the way we think & act.

    My last boyfriend was 31. At no point did I feel like our age disparity was socially unacceptable. If he were 41, yeah, I could see that being an issue.. An interesting concept nonetheless.

    Roughly 23 to 51. My personal comfort levels are more like 26 to 42. Though I have dated men in their 50s. It never leads to much more than good sex with nice dates.

    OMG I love the person who made that graph. It's so true too.

    I can accept anyone between 21 and 42. Wow being 28 is perfect. I never want to get older.

    My partner and I had a 26 year age gap but he genuinely looked 15 years younger than he actually was. Neither of us cared what anyone thought.

    Looks like I'm severely limited to whom I can date... ah well, rules are meant to be broken.

    There's an 11 year age difference between me and my partner (he's 43). However we mesh on so many levels that I actually forget there's a difference a lot of the time. Plus, he wears his age very well, in fact I ID'd him when we first met and he told me how old he was 'cause I thought he was messing with me. For us it's not an issue and we've been together nearly ten years now.

    lilTanker saidI'll do 40, I'll fuck 50 and I'll kill 60 and above...


    And the ones who die might be very, very happy men if they go while having sex with a stud like you, Tanker. icon_wink.gif

    Just my opinion. :-)

    Also, living in Honolulu we have a significant number of members of the armed forces here. Many of them are in their early 20's. Some are being deployed and may never come home.

    I feel that it is my duty as an American who supports our troops to give one of our men in uniform an absolutely mindblowing fuck when he messages me on Grindr. How can I turn a man down just because he's 20?

    I do tell them my age and that I'm old enough to be their father.

    Usually, they just ask if they can call me "Daddy" as they pull me in for the kiss.

    I just noticed that if you are 70 your partner can be 120 .. isn't that almost like necrophilia? the 120 is not on the x axis so I am assuming he/she is dead icon_lol.gif oops .. the x axis is your age .. but still isn't there a problem?
