"The "half-your-age-plus-seven rule" is one rule of thumb defining a mathematical formula to judge whether the age difference in an intimate relationship. The seven year rule is a pretty good yardstick. Pick a man who is half your age plus seven." Mathematically speaking, the rule is:

${\text{Age of Younger Individual} \ge \cfrac{\text{Age of Older Individual}}{2} + 7}$
