Can men women friends after dating
Similarly, among 26,434 men ages 30 to 49, 42% wouldn’t even consider a woman if she was older than him.
However, if contacted by an older woman, men wouldn’t necessarily turn her down.
Every man and woman online still has criteria that must be met by people who want to date him or her, and every guy and girl is still in direct competition with every other person of their gender…
Whereas before a man just needed to be the best looking guy at work to get a date with a colleague, now he needed to be in the top 10% of all men to get a date with one of the women in his city.” This is the double-edged sword of online dating.
Hmmm…Very timely topic as I’ve recently decided to try online dating. 1) Even though my listed target ages are 38-53, men well below that target are contacting me.
Let’s just agree that women, like men, prefer dating younger, that men are receptive to emails from all sorts of women, and that both genders are equally driven by youth and beauty.
4) Curiously, I’ve garnered 0% interest in men at age 40-45. Could be because they’ve only filtered to below their ages so I don’t show up in their search?
Should I lie about my age to get into their searches? So now I do mental calcs to men’s heights and subtract a few inches from their listed height if they’re under 6-ft. I know it shouldn’t matter, but I don’t find the proportions of a man at 5-4 to be appealing.
Add this to the annals of studies that confirm things we already know anecdotally.
A piece in Time Magazine cites numbers from the Are You Interested Facebook app that concludes that, among 35,942 users ages 30 to 49, a woman was five times more likely to show interest in a man who was five years her junior, rather than one who was five years older.
