From Our Readers September 15, 8: I on the other hand, had never even been on a date. Call it an effect of the quarter-life crisis, or pressure from my traditional South Asian family in finding a life-long partner, but I decided that at 25, I would take the plunge…by online dating. I remember filling out my online profile, completely not knowing what to expect. Being busy with pursuing an education and career, dating was the furthest thing from my mind. It was after a chat with some co-workers that I finally decided to take a shot. After all, you never know unless you try! Whether the response is positive or negative, you at least gain some clarity.
Is 25 too old to start dating?
Today’s Valentine’s Day, and I just remembered the thread. I have to sincerely thank everyone who’s pitched in. I am totally convinced there really is no right age for dating — you decide what’s the best time for you. I’ve turned down two guys in the last month or so.

Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date. Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.
If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart.
A few weeks ago, we told you the NBA draft early entry withdrawal deadline had solidified the preseason hierarchy of the college basketball season. The Wisconsin star was told by NBA executives he needs a jump shot to have a chance at the next level. There was always a chance that a transfer or an unfortunate injury could alter the landscape, but we figured we knew enough about every team’s roster to project a solid list of preseason rankings.
Then, Reid Travis , an all-Pac 12 forward who averaged Although one move is not typically enough to make us update the Way-Too-Early Top 25, this is different, so we’re rearranging the top of the rankings to account for a New No. The former five-star recruit might be the strongest player in college basketball. He’s a force around the rim who made 56 percent of his shots inside the arc.
He’ll play next to PJ Washington , who averaged Five-star big man E. Montgomery is in the mix, too.

I just turned 30 years old and living in Taipei. I was not looking forward to turning the big Where did the time go? I was in a four year relationship that should have lasted two. It had been years since I hated my job. I had no direction in my life. Leaving for Taipei was my escape. I hoped to learn more about myself, grow as a person, and come back with all the answers I was looking for.
Are We Too Old for Boyfriends in Our 60s?
As I mentioned, there are exceptions — there is a group of guys who prefer older women, and there is a group of women who is uniquely attractive despite being older. But denying that a significant age difference is an issue is like denying that a typical woman wants to be with a guy who is taller. Many younger men appreciate the wisdom, intelligence, reponsibility and maturity an older woman brings to the relationship. Most younger men in this study, preferred to date years older than their own age.
You underestimate how many younger men are tired of the games women their age play. Again, there are exceptions, but relying on it is a risky proposition, to say the least.
You’ve almost certainly faced the problem: you’ve got an album or box of old photographs but almost all lack any identification. Family Chronicle’s special publication can’t help you identify the subject but it can help you with dating when the picture was taken – often within a couple of years.
But these cakes have a definite expiration date — no one wants to eat Christmas cake after December 25th. And no matter how attractive a woman is, it’s said, no Japanese male will want to marry her after she’s Thus, “Christmas Cake” is used as a metaphor term for a woman rendered unmarriageable because she is past the freshness of her youth; roughly equivalent to ” Old Maid. Even when the writers are sympathetic to the character, nagging to marry will still come from someone, usually her parents.
A Cool Big Sis may be one, or heading there, usually with extreme annoyance; referring to this character as Oba-san is about as tactful as referring to someone as Ma’am and is likely to induce a rage. Sometimes this is just a device to explain them hanging around other characters younger than them. She tends to be very attractive but is relegated to cake status by annoying habits.
The other problem occurs if she’s also stuck in an Improbably Female Cast or any such place where men are slim pickings. The Competence Zone might force her to hang around and even fawn over men much younger than her.
What Age Is Appropriate for Dating?

Kentucky’s late addition of Reid Travis forced us to adjust our rankings. There’s no denying that the Stanford graduate transfer puts the Wildcats over the top.
The Radiometric Dating Game Radiometric dating methods estimate the age of rocks using calculations based on the decay rates of radioactive elements such as uranium, strontium, and potassium. On the surface, radiometric dating methods appear to give powerful support to the statement that life has existed on the earth for hundreds of millions, even billions, of years.
We are told that these methods are accurate to a few percent, and that there are many different methods. We are told that of all the radiometric dates that are measured, only a few percent are anomalous. This gives us the impression that all but a small percentage of the dates computed by radiometric methods agree with the assumed ages of the rocks in which they are found, and that all of these various methods almost always give ages that agree with each other to within a few percentage points.
Since there doesn’t seem to be any systematic error that could cause so many methods to agree with each other so often, it seems that there is no other rational conclusion than to accept these dates as accurate. However, this causes a problem for those who believe based on the Bible that life has only existed on the earth for a few thousand years, since fossils are found in rocks that are dated to be over million years old by radiometric methods, and some fossils are found in rocks that are dated to be billions of years old.
If these dates are correct, this calls the Biblical account of a recent creation of life into question. After study and discussion of this question, I now believe that the claimed accuracy of radiometric dating methods is a result of a great misunderstanding of the data, and that the various methods hardly ever agree with each other, and often do not agree with the assumed ages of the rocks in which they are found.
I believe that there is a great need for this information to be made known, so I am making this article available in the hopes that it will enlighten others who are considering these questions.
