You can see that men are basically operating by the rule for minimum age preferences for marital relationships (blue bars) and serious dating relationships (yellow bars).
According to the rule, for example, a 30-year-old should be with a partner who is at least 22, while a 50-year-old’s dating partner must be at least 32 to not attract (presumed) social sanction. Does it match our scientific understanding of age-related preferences for dating? Researchers Buunk and colleagues (2000) asked men and women to identify the ages they would consider when evaluating someone for relationships of different levels of involvement.The rule overestimates the perceived acceptability of men becoming involved with older women.Men do not show a linear increase in maximum age preference that matches the rule’s predictions.Then tell them, “Just three more years, and you can date.” Just kidding -- sort of.What is the acceptable minimum age for your own (and others’) dating partners?
