Creep Factor!

I’m writing a short film screenplay about trust. Not to give too much of the plot away, it involves an older guy marrying a much, much younger woman Now---- with Indiana Jones opening this weekend, and all the woman’s talk of Harrison Ford’s lingering ‘hotness’ at 65.

His relationship with a much younger woman (22 years age difference) I would like to know what the average person’s “Creep Factor” for dating younger/older people. I recently read that it is the older person’s age, divided by two and add seven and that is the YOUNGEST the older person can get involved with. In my screenplay- my guy is aged 55 and his wife is 22.

So what is YOUR creep factor?

I'm going to throw ou 20 years. 10 doesn't seem to bug me at all unless the lower end of that is in the barely-legal age.

55/22? Yeah, that qualifies as creep factor.

Happy Memorial Day!

the 55/22 thing does creep me out, too. Not sure why because if the guy is mega rich (Paul MacCartney, Anna Nicole Smith's husband) you kind see what the heart of the transaction is all about.

Perhaps it's because she's so near a teenager and I don't understand what he is attracted to apart from youth. 65/32 doesn't creep me out as much...

My personal creep factor right now is probably 10 years or so I guess. I never really gave it much thought. I do think I won't end up with someone much above or below 5 years difference from my age as I am not sure we'd be in the same place in life but I also learned long ago to never say never!

I think it depends on what the people look like, too. A Harrison Ford or even a Sean Connery just isn't creep to me. But someone like Billy Bob Thornton would be creepy. Does that make sense?

Hmmm...I get creeped out from dating guys younger than me. lol I don't think 55/22 is that creepy. Depends on the couple and the maturity level. Kind of reminds me of the couple from Northern Exposure, the older guy and the younger girl. I know it's tv but they had good chemistry.

I think 55 would definalty be creepy, unless of course it was George Clooney then I think it would be ok.
