Question-why is it harder to date people as you get older?
Depends on your sex. If you’re a woman, your most attractive years are somewhere between 17–28. After 30, you become more unattractive with every year that you gain. Sounds offensive? Your problem. It’s the truth.
If you’re a man, your most attractive years START at age 30. You are more confident and successful and know how to get different kinds of women.
Now, as a man, you like younger women. Thus an ageing woman usually finds an ever decreasing pool of available, attractive men. An ageing man, however, can still hook up with a young 24 year old — why would he go for that rusty 37 year old with saggy tits? Thus after 30, the dating pool for men increases. He can have more and more younger women.
Before you horn in that the young girl doesn’t really love the man, but is after his money — nonsense! You don’t understand how attraction works with men and women:
Men like beautiful women. Beauty is what primarily attracts them. They even LOVE hot women. If a woman is hot, she can get away with murder. If she is hot and has a minimum of decency in her character (a rarity!), she is guaranteed to get a top-tier quality guy. Whether or not a woman is attractive is usually determined upon sight.
Women like successful men. By success, I don’t necessarily mean financial success, but rather achievement. In the perception of women, a man’s attraction is CREATED in the course of his interaction with her. Ever wondered why so many hot chicks at school / uni hook up with that ugly bastard? That’s because while he may not be precisely handsome, he is attractive and knows how to project the image of success. Thus, it is a misconception that young women are only after an older man’s wealth — if he is reasonably charming and successful, they are seriously attracted by him (I’m not speaking of 20+ years of age gap!).
Now, here’s how that sums up — ready? You can be successful and even increase your success, communicaion skills, dominance, power and influence as you grow older. But you cannot become younger and stop becoming uglier, saggier and fatter as you grow old. That’s why dating after 30 is a bitter bitch for many women, but the greatest fun for men. And that’s why unmarried, single women after 30 suddenly discover that they are feminists! :)
