What if instead we assumed a more "normal" rule for dating bounds, say - 5 years.We can easily plot this curve to see what it looks like.(alt-text: With reasonable assumptions about latitude and body shape, how much time might she gain them?Note: whatever the answer, sunrise always comes too soon. As you can see, the comic mentions some analysis involving census bureau data and dating pools.Our goal in this post is to replicate the analysis that leads to these curves.Megan is upset because she is apparently older than 26, and among people who marry, half do so below 26.
As an example, there are 7993 thousand singles of both sexes between the ages of 18 and 19.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.Assuming this applies to everyone in the population or society you live in, this means that there also is an upper age bound over which people can't date you because you're too young for them.The upper limit can be defined as y = 2(x − 7) in which x is your age and y is the maximum age of your partner.As age increases, the age range of potential non-creepy partners widens. The same also works with infinity, but even Methuselah died once.
