Here's an example of what I'm talking about, from a date I recently went on with a 22-year-old girl: In discussing how she planned on getting home after the date, her answer was simply, “Oh, my dad picks me up from the train station after work every day.”Her reason for this wasn't that she didn't have a car or that she was saving money.
It was that she truly wanted to be able to drink as much as she desired any and every day, on a whim.
Actress Robin Wright, 47, is engaged to fellow actor Ben Foster, 33.
Pop star Shakira is involved with a man 10 years her junior.
But let's be fair: There's a reason we tend to date people who are closer in age.
So, if something seems too good to be true (read: he or she is too hot for you by about eight years), it probably is.
Here are four problems you'll likely run into if you break the 8-year rule: I once went out with a woman who was under the impression that Lauryn Hill was made famous by being in "Sister Act 2."Now, there are a few reactions you can have to this.
Listen, if I could do it over again, I may not have moved out of my parents' house as soon as I did.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.On these dates, decent — hell, I'd take simply flowing — conversation is hard to come by.That really hot girl just out of college may seem alluring, but just trust me and play the odds. When it comes to the subject of love we always hope that there are no real significant barriers to its success.
