I had to learn everything from experience, and it’s been a blast.Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before.
This would place the maximum allowable age gap at a static fifteen to twenty years or so, depending on if the speaker is referring to the physical ability to have children or the socially acceptable age.

The rule would theoretically create a paradox for people under 14, because the younger partner would have to be older than the older partner, but 14 is about the youngest you can be and make anything even remotely resembling adultish decisions respecting relationships anyway, so this rule works out rather well.
This has the advantage of allowing for a larger age gap the older the partners get; the four-year age gap between a 22-year-old and an 18-year-old is significant (and just barely allowed by this rule), but the same age gap between an 86-year-old and a 90-year-old isn't worth comment.
In other words, there’s a socially acceptable maximum too, given by inverting the equation: It was only yesterday that i realised that the rule of thumb for dating people of different ages (the “half your age plus 7” rule) determines not only the lower bounds for dating but the upper bounds as well—that for each ½x 7, there is a corresponding 2(x-7).
For the last 15 years of my life, i have been ignoring an entire market segment, namely those of the genus The Ragbag handily plotted out the socially acceptable upper and lower bounds for dates at various ages in the chart below: Notably, the chart also implies that there is a socially acceptable lower bound for your age: below the age of 14, by this rule, you shouldn’t be dating at all.Also, I would see no problem dating anyone under maybe 30 as a max. Megan is upset because she is apparently older than 26, and among people who marry, half do so below 26.For example, a 50-year-old dating someone who is younger than (50/2) 7 = 32 would be considered creepy.As the graph shows, there is a lower limit and an upper limit.The intuitive conclusion is that the number of potential partners is decreasing as time goes on.
