The rule is the the minimum age you should date is half your age plus 7.
According to the rule, the minimum age for a 14 years old to date is 14. It's 21 for a 27 years old. 37 for a 60 years old. I think it makes sense for the most part.

I mean, it seems like a sensible recommendation. Not a hard and fast rule, but an alright guideline. Especially for younger ages. I think older folks can get some more leeway.2

I say, if you're in love, why does age matter at all? Yeah there are laws but like it really doesn't matter, love who you want. I have no idea who came up with this rule, but this isn't the first time I've heard it. Oh my I am always all over the place in my answers. The point is, love who you love. Be happy with that person.2
