I see what you did there.
Sorry, let me clarify just in case. Technically IQ supposedly measures your mental age where 100 would mean your mental age = your real age. So say a 20 year old with a 150 IQ would have a "mental age" of 30, which would technically mean they have the maturity of a 30 year old adult with 100 IQ. Obviously not exactly equivalent, but I can see that.

That means a 40 year old with 150 IQ dating a 19 year old with 100 IQ (aka, smart successful guy dating a hot young college chick who's not very bright) would translate to a 60 year old dating a 19 year old mentally.
