I've been giving this a lot of thought.
For men, we can have childeren anytime we want once puberty kicks in. We can be in our 80s and still have sperm to give to women, get them pregnant and have children. So, basically, men can have children anytime they want. So, if we really wanted to, we can be as picky as women when it comes to our sex partners and who we have children with.
For women, they have the biological clock ticking once puberty kicks in. They say that its a good idea to have a kid in your mid 20s because if you are in your mid to late 30s, it could be dangerous for the kid and the mom when the woman is giving birth and more issues can occur for the child. In this sense, women can't really afford to be too picky when it comes to men; however, women are pretty picky about this.

It doesn't matter what your sex is - if you're a catch to the opposite gender you can afford to be picky, if you're not you can't.
Keep in mind that just because a guy can have children, that doesn't mean there's necessarily any woman who wants to have them with him. A 50-60 year old guy for instance isn't going to have many prospects with women of child-bearing age except in unusual circumstances.1

i think women can be more picky but for a very short period of time. men can be more picky when they are 25+. 25 is about when the tables tip in a mans favor in the dating world.1
