Age gap in dating

It’s not for a 38-year-old to go out with a 23-year-old, however a 26-year-old would be fair game.The older you get, the wider the permissible age gap: a 50-year-old can venture as old as 86. In practice, research conducted by Christian Rudder, co-founder of OKCupid, a dating website, suggests that when it comes to age gaps, men and women have slightly different ideas.For older men and younger women, the site offers the opportunity to start a long term relationship, dating or casual encounter with local and national matches based on your preferences.....I’m not sure if it’s trendy to date someone with a large age gap but I certainly seem to be seeing a lot more of it.I'm, by no means, the most mature 30-year-old dude you're going to meet, and I'm not insinuating that all younger women are flighty or immature.But let's be fair: There's a reason we tend to date people who are closer in age.

I don’t think anyone would be surprised by the results of this study, but I wanted to know why?
