When Elisabetta Canalis and George Clooney tragically ended their fairytale romance earlier this summer, I happened to notice a little detail: she is 32, and he is 50.

I’m sure that no one in the world gives much of a shit about this age difference, probably because unlike some marriages she’s a grown-ass woman and he’s a grown-ass man, so, whatever. But that is, in fact, nearly a 20-year age difference, and also, 50 is decidedly middle age, whereas 32…well, you’re just getting started at 32!

Anyway, I’m curious how much older you’d go. Now, before you look at this poll and exclaim, “it depends on the PEERRRSSOOONNN!!” well…of course it depends on the person. You wouldn’t date a 35-year-old who behaved like he was 15, or a 40-year-old who bored you to tears with his sheer oldness.

But that said, most of us do, if pressed, have a number that we couldn’t imagine exceeding. It doesn’t mean we won’t exceed it, because life throws you curve balls sometimes! But I’m asking for that number. Maybe it’s 90. Feel free to elaborate in the comment section:
