Its an “age old” problem (pardon the pun) that men are typically always more attracted to women who are younger than they are. Of course there are exceptions to everything but it turns out that its actually a fact.

According to Metro there is a new study out that discovered that no matter how old a man gets, he will always be more attracted to women in their early 20’s, like between the ages of 20 and 24. So does this mean there is only one gender who understands the concept of “age appropriate” dating. Because the study also shows that as women get older, the men they are most attracted to are roughly about their same age.

So are all men just dogs? Not at all. Its easy to see why a man or woman of any age would find youth attractive. And the fact that they are merely attracted to this, doesn’t mean that a 40 year old man would prefer an actual relationship with a 20 year old. In fact, when the study asked people who they’re most interested in, both men and women said they’d prefer someone near their own age.

So just because a 40 or 50 year old man may find a 20 year old woman most attractive, if he’s looking for anything serious, he’d gravitate to someone closer to his own age. See, we aren’t all bad. 🙂
