1. I mean seriously.

Example: 100 year old Saddam is looking for a relationship so: 100/2 = 50 +7 =57

You guys who believe this formula think that a 100 year old is going to have a great relationship with a 57 year old or anyone near 57????

Chances are very slim.
2. Why add 7 and not 8?

Even adding 8 would still be a flawed formula.

5. It was intended for teenagers I believe, so dividing by two and adding 7 would slightly over/undershoot their actual age depending on which side of 14 they are

I'd agree with this, that that logic only works for teenagers. Once you get older than i think you notice age gaps much less, i barely ever notice the 4 years between the two of us.

8. This equation is precise and golden. Of course it is most relevant when an older guy is trying to date a young girl, and here following it will prevent a beating from an angry father or being a complete laughing stock. Once you're 100 its a little unlikely that dating and getting your oats will be a top priority but if it is no one under 57 would even look at you so it saves wasting time.
