19 year old guy dating 26 year old woman
Metaphors aside, we can evaluate the potential matches for a given age/gender by summing the area under the curve (AP Calculus, ftw!
) I made these calculations in the chart below, and we can see that women have more pursuers than men until age 26, but thereafter a man can expect many more potential dates than a woman of the same age.
Nothing I’ll talk about today pertains necessarily to any one of them, but I wanted to put forward some people to go with the statistical discussion.
This older-women-are-more-sexual pattern repeats across almost every proposition.
Here are a few more data sets just as sparklines (computed, like the map above, for our sample set of 100,000 women).
So that’s the lay of the land, and now I’d like to say why I think it could be different.
In the next three sections of this post, I will show that an older woman’s attitudes, both about sex and life, are just as good if not better than her younger counterparts’, and hopefully I’ll convince more guys to venture north of their current age-limits: since time immemorial, but these articles typically cite clinical testosterone/estrogen/progesterone studies and attempt to make the leap to “sexual peak” from there — if they bother to cite any data at all.
Ultimately, I’ll argue that they would be well-served to expand their search upwards, to women in their thirties and forties.
