Thus the rule for maximum age is fairly ineffective at capturing what men actually believe is acceptable. Now let's apply the rule to actual dating behavior by examining George Clooney’s dating habits.Clooney has been scrutinized at times for dating younger women, though not consistently, and this pattern is nicely reflected in a graph of his own age, his partners’ ages, and the rule’s calculations for minimum and maximum acceptable ages.The rule’s calculated minimum acceptable partner ages seem to fit men better than women.Women’s preferred maximum partner age: Examining maximum preferences, again the rule is more lenient, offering an age range with which most people are not comfortable.Instead, men report maximum acceptable partner ages that hover around their own age through their 40s.After 40, maximum age preferences for most categories remain lower than their own age.
age boundary: Take your age, subtract 7, and double it.Men’s preferred minimum partner age: Let’s start with minimum age preferences reported by heterosexual men.In Figure 1, the solid black line represents the rule’s calculation for the minimum acceptable range.But the rule does map perfectly onto actual reports of what is socially acceptable.At times it is too stringent, but most often it appears too lenient, condoning age pairings with which most people are not comfortable.
The rule overestimates the perceived acceptability of men becoming involved with older women.
