Blogs about dating in forties
At the graph's outer edge, at age 48, men are nearly twice as sought-after as women.
Meanwhile his upper acceptable limit hovers only a token amount above his own age.As I explained a couple months ago, in Your Looks And Your Inbox the hottest girls are swamped with male attention.They get 4× the messages as the merely "average" and up to 25× as many as women at the lower end of the spectrum.As we mentioned above, after age 26, a man has more potential matches than his female counterparts, which is a drastic reversal of the proportion in young adulthood, when women are much more sought-after.Because men's dating preferences skew so young, and women's are age-equitable, men peak later, and have a longer plateau of desirability, than women.Again, these are just a handful of examples; whether we ask about bondage or kissing, women are the most sexual in their thirties.
Researching this post, I also came upon an interesting complementary pair of graphs illustrating sexual dominance preferences. Older women are generally interested in doing just that.
I, on the other hand, can make my claim by looking at a woman's stated preferences: This is a nationwide "age progression" of American women, a normalized heat map similar to the ones you saw above, but with an added geographical component.
By moving the slider you can watch how attitudes become more sex-positive as the population gets older.
This second chart also contains something very peculiar that we didn't see at all in men. These color discontinuities indicate dramatic changes in a woman's dating mentality: when a women turns 20 she decides it's okay to message significantly older men (i.e.
the upper reaches of the chart suddenly become less red).
It's no secret that dating changes radically as you get older.
