In other words, your loss of libido is perfectly timed to coincide with your brand new lard-ass physique and moody attitude.
If that isn’t incentive to get married before you turn 40, we don’t know what is.
It can be more challenging to meet older guys, who are unlikely to hang out in the same venues frequented by the post-college crowd.
The best way to do this, in addition to online dating, is through work, social circles and activities. Personally, I’ve always been of the opinion that 28 is the sweet spot for males physically, but that’s entirely subjective, so I decided to do some research. David Buss’ study of sex differences in human mate preferences found that preferences around age were quite consistent for women: Ideal age difference for women: male 3.4 years older Ideal age at marriage for women: 25.4 years Therefore…ideal age of husband at marriage: 28.8 years As you can see, male desirability peaks at 26 and stays strong until about 30, at which point it decreases rapidly. She ends her prime years at 31, while the male stays in his prime through 36.
But I've been watching and compiled a list of DOs and DON' Ts from Jess's experience dating the sophisticated Dermot Mulroney as Fancypants, who's a whopping twelve years older.
The father’s age also accounted for nearly all of the variation in the number of new mutations in a child’s genome, with the number of new mutations being passed on rising exponentially with paternal age.
A 36-year-old will pass on twice as many mutations to his child as a man of 20, and a 70-year-old eight times as many, Stefánsson’s team estimates. Finally, while you may find a bit of gray in the sideburns sexy, keep in mind that a man’s age will affect his parenting style.
There's already enough pressure when it comes to dating, why add more stress and think about the age thing if you really like this dude?
There are couples who are about 2-8 years apart in age and they don't mind.
