Christian dating age gap
So to be clear, I'm not dumping on anyone who still lives with their folks.
However, I am saying that if you're 30 and dating someone who lives with their parents… This one is going to make me sound old AF, and I'm OK with that.
It starts with how frequently they text, how surprised they are by phone calls as a mode of communication and how irresponsibly they handle getting back to people in a timely, appropriate fashion.
And naturally, it concludes with something like what I've experienced several times — a date that lasts no more than 45 minutes and feels like an absolute death march for the final 20.
So, I'm proposing this "8-year rule" in dating as an absolute.
The 8-year rule states that you shouldn't date anyone outside of an 8-year age range. I've dated (or tried to date) women who are older, younger and, if you'll believe it, exactly the same age as I am.
From that story, I deduced she was either an alcoholic, irresponsible or the product of parents who let her do whatever she wanted — or all three.On these dates, decent — hell, I'd take simply flowing — conversation is hard to come by.Once you've run out of the stock chat options ("How many siblings do you have?Younger women echo and even amplify this interest in men older than themselves.For 20-29 year olds, the average given age difference wanted was up to 10 years, whilst women aged 30-39 can imagine a partner 8 years older.
