This seems arbitrary, but if you crunch your age into that equation, I’m willing to bet that you wouldn’t even consider dating someone under that age. ) If we plot the Standard Creepiness Rule out for men: (Note that you can easily just change the axis labels in the above chart and it works just as well for women.) It just so happens that Christian Rudder released his book Dataclysm last week, which features a chart showing us the age range that men search on Ok Cupid for when looking for women to date.

One of my first thoughts when I saw this chart was: Do men on Ok Cupid follow the Standard Creepiness Rule?

We proceed in two parts: As explained in the comic, the "standard creepiness rule" implies that you can't date people below a certain age that depends on your own age.

I edited the data found in the csv file to compute the age pools of singles by considering that the "single person" category is the union of the categories "Married Spouse Absent", "Widowed", "Divorced", "Separated" and "Never Married".

In its first known appearances (in the book Her Royal Highness Woman by Max O'Rell, "The little shepherd of Kingdom Come" by John Fox, and the 1951 play The Moon is Blue by F.

Hugh Herbert), it's stated or implied that at the beginning of a relationship or marriage, the woman's age "is supposed to be half the man's age, plus seven", which gives a different (asymmetrical) interpretation to the rule.

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.

Compare May December Romance, Comedic Lolicon, Likes Older Women, Likes Older Men, and Wife Husbandry.

It seems that there’s an XKCD comic for every life situation that we run in to. One of my favorites, by far, is the comic titled “Dating pools.” This comic highlighted the Standard Creepiness Rule, a.k.a.
