Because the idea of dating someone in their teens makes me uncomfortable, I’m gonna go ahead and round that up to an even 20, which seems… still pretty young to me, honestly, but I guess 5 years isn’t that much. To find out what the youngest age you should date is, take your current age, divide it by 2, and add 7. This seems perfectly reasonable, and I was pretty excited to compare this age to celebrity crushes. I’m 25 now, so I took 12.5, added 7 years, is 19.5. To find out what the oldest age you should date is, take your current age, subtract 7, and multiply it by two.
Unfortunately, I’m definitely not 21 any more, and 30 is, well, not that much older than me.
Jared Leto is, crushingly, out of my age range (39), but let’s be honest.
This map shows the female legal age of consent for heterosexual sex in different countries around the world.
The age of consent is the age at which a young person is legally able to understand and agree to consensual sex.
In most countries, until you reach this age it is illegal for somebody to have sex with you, however old they may be.
