I stumbled across this nonsense showbiz article about 60 year old Mel Gibson on the red carpet with his 25 year old girlfriend.
I scrolled down to the comments and it was pure gold. Women saying he's "pathetic" and "disgusting" for being attracted to a younger woman. Here's some of the most up voted comments...
Honestly, these sad, old men chasing women half their age just cannot face up to the fact that they are no longer young and 'have it'. It's disturbing how they really believe these women want them. What egos they have. He is 35 YEARS!!!! older for goodness sake. Cringe. What an embarrassment.
Dirty old man!
Now here's some of the most down voted comments....
To the complainers, men select for beauty and fertility; both of which are on the decline. They also select for low-conflict behavior, kindness. And it's a myth that there is an excess of desirable women over 30. Of those supposedly desirable women, about 50% are fat. About 25% are on anti-depressants. About 80% are emotionally damaged. About 90% have feminist attitudes that are not conducive to a happy marriage. Many are frigid and infertile.
Reality is, that any guy who is 40 or over, and has his act together, is going to date younger; especially with the horrible economy -there are lots of 28yo women without a clear path to career at this point. A 37yo with possibly 2 years of fertility left should be looking not for 40 or 42, but for someone about 50 to 54 who is in good shape and still wants to have 1 or 2 kids. I mean, any man who passes the 463 bullet points of requirements a late 30s single woman will inevitably have, will be able to select from a much wider & more desirable pool than late 30s single women."
Men are lucky in that as they age they often acquire more attractiveness to women. On the other hand, as evidenced by the comments here, it just burns women that, as they get older men are still attracted to youth and beauty.
