The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    The youngest you go is your age divided by 2, add 7.

    Ex. If you're 22, you probably shouldn't be dating anyone younger than 18.

    If it's legal, go for it. It probably won't work, but you're welcome to try it.

    Personally, I'm 28 don't have anything in common with girls younger than about 25 for the most part. I'll get my bone on, but most young girls are just dumb and will eventually say something stupid to make me hate them.

    So that would mean a 22 year old for me would be okay? Uh...no. Aside from the fact that I'm married, there is no way I could see myself being with any 22 year old woman. Far too immature.

    I think it'll vary. However the divide by 2 rule add 7 seems to be a good guide. So since i'm 18 that means I can date a 16 year old, which honsetly seems about right. Even at leasts assume 16 you can date a 15 year old. Its actually good forumla. Now if your 70 your taking 37, not to shabby and that 70 year is at rue pimp.

    Maturity isn't restricted by age. I know grown adults who behave like 13 year old spoiled brats and 15 year old kids who are more level headed then half the adults I know.

    Half plus 7 seems to work... I like to stay within 2 years either way of my age.

    Once you're 18, you can make your own decisions on who you date.

    What's wrong with a 30 year old dating a 22 year old?

    Of course that would be okay. Just because you don't think it's okay (you must be a very, very old 30 year old in that case) doesn't mean that the majority of society wouldn't deem it to be acceptable.

    Besides, lighten up. It's just a fun little rule of thumb.

    This works for a while, but after 30 and especially as you start pushing 40, things start to get a little, I don't know how to say it... let's go with "strained". A 10 year difference is probably probably acceptable to me - JMO.

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    age is just a number. your situation in life matters a lot more. ie I wouldn't date anyone in highschool, but working or university is fine.

    I think it depends on the points of maturity you are at. 10 years difference is acceptable when you are older. But when you are 16, 26 is too old, and 6 is way too young.

    Where you are at in life really does matter. I would be willing to date somebody, say 6 years older than me, but not 6 years younger. 6 years younger would probably put him in high school. A high schooler and a law school student, big difference in life. 6 years older could be a strain, but we most likely would be able to relate pretty well. I don't really have a set maximum age, I take each person on a case-by-case basis.
    To clear up some confusion:
    Blanche = slut on the Golden Girls
    Soprano = The Sopranos
    And no, my life does not revolve around the tv.
