Women tend to get uglier as they age?

Older women never seem to date younger men but they tend to wonder why society believes their beauty fades as they age. This ideology comes from the idea that women tend to date older men for their maturity and financial stability. According to sociological conflict theory, men would then want younger women. Now older women are fighting in the media to alter the definition of beautiful. Yet, so many single older women I know would never date younger men, which is really where this ideology comes from. Do you think older women are being hypocritical?

  • Men and women peak at different times. For a women they usually peak around 22 (though beauty can be held into thier 40's if they take care of themselves) and men in thier 30-35's (men can maintain thier physique well into thier 50's with hard work)
