Older women dating blog are freddie highmore and sarah bolger dating

Ultimately, I’ll argue that they would be well-served to expand their search upwards, to women in their thirties and forties.Because it has been a successful way to introduce previous posts, I wanted to put real faces on this demographic before I delve into a bunch of numbers.Put another way: a 45 year-old woman shouldn’t have a harder time finding a date than a 20 year-old, because the female-to-male ratios at those ages are equal (roughly 11:9).Of course, we all know that 45 year-olds do have a much harder time, because the male fixation on youth distorts the dating pool.Pictured below are some single users in their mid-thirties or early forties, taken from the first couple pages of my own local match search.

Here’s the data: A woman’s desirability peaks at 21, which, ironically enough is the age that men just begin their “prime,” i.e. Following that dotted line out, you can see that a woman of 31 is already “past her prime,” while a man doesn’t become so until 36.

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.

I hesitated beginning my case for older women with something about their sexuality, like I did in Exhibit A, because that territory borders right on cougar country.

But the evidence there was too compelling to ignore.
