Should women over 30 accept that men prefer young women and stop trying to find marriage?

If this hypothetical "wall" exists for women once we hit 30, is there any point in trying to date? I'll be 30 in a couple months, and part of me wonders if it would just be better giving up the search, especially since most men want young women.

As older women, we could just keep focusing on building careers, having great friends, being close to family, traveling as much and whenever we want to, enjoying life and exploring new things, making more money with the freedom of no kids or man to get in the way or even maybe have a kid on our own. I would only try to have my own kid once I reach a certain income (and I'm aggressive about reaching a certain income anyway). My friend is my age and having a baby on her own, so that had me thinking about this again.

I personally am very picky about men and wouldn't settle for some who wasn't right for me. And I dont want to date anyone who would prefer to be dating a 21 year old - that doesn't even make sense to me because I'm very far from the personality and mindset of a young woman.

What do you think? I know not many older women are on this website, but thought I'd throw it out there.
