Women, on the other hand, prefer guys closer to their own age.
In September, a study of 12,000 Finns reaffirmed what prior research had already established. If dudes were really so set on their caveman-era mating habits, wouldn’t we see more single ladies over 30 home knitting tea cozies on Friday nights?
Evolutionary psychology suggests that people are more likely to be attracted to people who look like they might be fertile.
Certainly, anyone deliberately looking for a mate to breed with must pick someone of an age of likely fertility.
Historically, unequal pairings are quite common, if not the rule.
Turns out, there’s lots to love about women of a certain age.
Men in their 40s add: “Women over 30 have stopped putting metal through their lips and tongues which makes it easier to kiss them.
The most common pattern in heterosexual couples is an older man with a younger woman.
This may be brought about as an arranged marriage, or either member may pursue and initiate the relationship in those societies that favor freer association.
