For me and many others, this decade has been all about love and work.

Take everything I say here with major grains of salt, and know that there is no way I think that my experience could possibly speak to all women in their 20s.
That said, from talking with my friends, I know there are some common lessons we all seem to be learning about dating, relationships, and love in this decade. All of us are different, but the potential learning curve is equally steep for most of us. As certain lessons about dating and relationships have started to become more clear, I feel oddly compelled to share a few things that I wish a year-old had told year-old me.
I’m sure I wouldn’t have listened, because you kind of just have to go through these things yourself. But that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t have been nice to hear anyway.

You’re 50, so that means you can date a woman who is And that means I can date a woman who is From where did this ridiculous rule come? You can date someone as young as half your age plus seven years?
It’s so male-skewed that it’s ridiculous. It’s no wonder that so many women feel that men their own age are too immature. It’s because of this urban legend that has gone around forever. Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he’s 14 years old because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is So the ripe old age of 14 — the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age — is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age?
