"Add that with a slowing metabolism you’ll start to see the weight gain"Aren't most Americans overweight to begin with, though?
Yeah but most people in their 20’s aren’t obviously overweight. Still reasonably attractive “clothed” but once that metabolism dies it gets more obvious. It’s more common to see people who are middle aged and overweight than to see younger people who are obviously overweight.
I’d love a romantic gang bang with a man from each decade, starting with 18 and ending with a guy in their 60s.

I skipped character/personality/baggage because that’s a way more complex subject. I will say that baggage increases with the number of failed relationships tho & it makes women less attractive for serious.
I don't think men age better but that women are just more amicable to signs of aging. For example, lesbian and bisexual women are also fine with older women. (I'm bisexual and my preference for women actually skews older than for men)
I said that because 27% of me voted C and 24% of women voted F.
Yeah, because women are more tolerant of signs of aging in potential partners.
Can you link to where that chart is from? The idea that a 65 year old man is more desirable than a 30 year old man is hard to believe, unless the women making the judgments are in their 60s themselves.
To be fair, women of all ages were considered; if the cities were averaged or if a different study or data set was used, it'd be a wider gap. However, retired me have lots of money and we can't forget about sugar babies.https://amp.theatlantic.com/amp/article/567083/
Mistixs I suspect the chart reflects supply and demand. 60 year old women may think 20 year old men are better looking than 60 year old men, but most don’t actually want to date a 20 year old. There are significantly more older women than older men in the world (and more young men then young women). add in men’s interest in dating younger or even much younger women and women’s preference to date slightly to much older when younger and close in age when older and you end up with these imbalances - young women being hugely in demand and older men being mildly in demand. In areas that have more women then men (NYC for instance) it’s even stronger impact.
@0112358 "60 year old women may think 20 year old men are better looking than 60 year old men, but most don’t actually want to date a 20 year old."That's my point. If the study participants are 50+ year olds, then I can believe that 50+ year old women find 60 year old men more desirable than 30 year old men. But if it's all ages, I find it hard to believe most 25 year old women would find 60 year old men more desirable than 30 year old men. The participants must be very heavily skewed towards elderly women if that's the result.
I suspect this curve reflects the supply demand imbalance. The ratio of single women to single men is somewhat famously skewed in those cities. So in the sample there may be 100 20 year old women who are looking at 100 20 year old men... plus some older men. Meanwhile there might be 25, 50 year old women but they’re fighting over 5, 50 year old men.
You're both not considering education and wealth, the primary driver's for women."The male fixation on youth distorts the dating pool," an OKCupid blog post about the study reads.Some claim the explanation for this behavior has something to do with innate biological desires. For example, that youth is related to fertility, and men are driven to pursue a mate who can bear his children, developmental psychologist Michelle Drouin explains to TheNew York Times. However, other theories suggest that men really are "more interested in physical attractiveness," she says.What's more, Bruch and Newman's *study also revealed that the greater a man's education, the more desirable he is to women, but the same is not true for women with advanced levels of education.* Their data suggest that post-graduate education is actually a less desirable characteristic in women.www-yahoo-com.cdn.ampproject.org/.../...00757.html
A lot of women in their 50s are still attractive.
@Jamie05rhs: Some are, but zo me most aren’t. Main problem is that people’s weight peaks in their 50s, do lots of them are very overweight.
@mistixs Oops! I didn't mean that in an offensive way. I wasn't referring to any of your family members. 😳 Sorry; I just thought of that.
Age... its a weight
