Dating sites 40 year old people
As it is, men between 22 and 30 — nearly two-thirds of the male dating pool — focus almost exclusively on women younger than themselves.I’ll be investigating this phenomenon today, with gusto and charts.We’re all about a positive outlook: If you’re over 40, dating just got interesting, so believe in yourself and try Love Begins
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.
It’s no secret that dating changes radically as you get older.
As you can see below, the number of online daters peaks at 24, drops sharply at around 30, and then gradually tapers off, as the remaining singletons either find mates or withdraw themselves from contention: The bar chart here shows how the woman to man ratio changes over time. In a better world, this would imply that older people don’t necessarily have a harder time finding decent mates than younger ones, as the composition of the dating pool holds relatively steady from age to age.
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.
