Age dating limit
After spending a few days trying to adjust to the fact that the handsome co-leader of my small group was seven years my junior, I had just realized that he was actually eight years younger!
A question I receive often is, "How did you make the decision to date and marry a younger guy?
In 2011, Di Caprio, then 36, dated 23- to 24-year-old Blake Lively.
In 2012, he dated 22- to 23-year old Erin Heatherton.
For purposes of his anonymity, I am going to call just call him "Son." My friend said, "Son, you're 18 years old, so I am going to tell you how you date.
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? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.
For convenience, the line representing x=y is also shown (in blue).
The area between the blue and red lines shows where you are the older partner in the half-age-plus-seven calculation, while the area between the black and blue lines shows where you are the younger partner.
The actor had a literal May-December relationship with Toni Garrn, who Di Caprio dated from May 2013, when he was 38 and she was 20, to December 2014.
