We came across some guy in the week-end (i am aware, i am getting quite great at this, right?) who does not have a Facebook profile.
In the start I don’t think it had been weird until we actually attempted to think about other Facebook shunners. I really couldn’t consider one individual during my circle of buddies that hasn’t succumbed into the addictive myspace and facebook; also my computer illiterate buds that are most have profile.
Then again I experienced an idea, imagine if exactly why he ended up being perhaps not just a fully-fleged bonafide Facebooker was a generational issue? This person is 36, the age that is same my cousin (a other non-social networker) – 11 years more than moi.
I met a man from the week-end (i am aware, i am getting quite proficient at this, right?) who doesn’t always have a Facebook profile.
To start with I did not think it absolutely was strange until we really attempted to think about other Facebook shunners. I possibly couldn’t think about one individual in my own group of buddies that hasn’t succumbed towards the addicting social networking; also my many computer illiterate buds have profile.
Then again I’d an idea, let’s say the key reason why he had been maybe not just a fully-fleged bonafide Facebooker was an issue that is generational? This person is 36, the exact same age as my cousin (a fellow non-social networker) – 11 years older than moi.
It can sound right. The entire Facebook occurrence is 2nd nature to us Gen Yers. It is just what the milk bar would be to seniors, and just what cruising around in a crapped out, adorable Holden and parking up at beaches would be to Generation X – it really is where we meet, greet and socialise.
Anyway, i cannot state I became displeased to know which he was not on Facebook, specially because it increased the probabilities which he don’t learn about this website (not too we’m embarrassed of it or any such thing. ).
Facebook became the very first of a number of generational differences I discovered through the evening. He understands all of the terms to ‘Saturday night during the films’ by The Drifters (I do not) and he talked of that time period “when I became 11-years-old. ” (and I also had been nevertheless a sperm – the fastest semen though, he included.)
It made me wonder exactly exactly how people who have massive age distinctions log on to, not to mention this resulted in a conversation that is flat the Sunday afternoon weekend debrief on how old is just too old – or, exactly how low can you get with regards to your spouse’s age?
I do not have any set restrictions when it comes to age, but i have constantly generally speaking dated older dudes – extremely old-fashioned of me personally, I’m sure.
But you can find theories, right?
One buddy explained about ‘relevant age swing’ – which basically means if you flick the age difference around yesterday. for example if a man had been five years older I date someone who was 5 years younger than me than me, would? Or even, it’s a no go. If yes, green light, celebration on.
Another theory could be the “half age plus seven”, although i am told that this just works for guys (I do not realise why, but anyhow).
Fundamentally, you halve your actual age and include seven years to that particular figure and that’s theoretically only it is possible to go with regards to a romantic date’s age. For me, that will mean dating a 20-year-old. I can not observe that happening at all, but never state never ever We spose. Consider Demi and Ashton – nevertheless going! That would have thought?
That would also formally make me personally a puma, also referred to as the pre-cougar.
We’d never ever been aware of the definition of puma till yesterday (i really like learning brand brand new words, God bless the urban dictionary). It essentially means a female in her own late 20s or very early 30s who would rather date males inside their belated teens or very early 20s. The flat decided that one of our fellow flatmates was while i’m no puma. a puma that is proud might we include.
Just what exactly’s your theory on age distinctions? Does it nevertheless change lives in the event that girl may be the older one, or are those archaic guidelines gone now? Exactly How low can you get?
