Of the 12,000 Finns who participated in the study, "across the spectrum," men of all ages, sexually preferred women in their mid-20s. It's true that some men go for older women, but those going for "older," women are guys in their late teens and early 20s looking at women in their mid-20s. Why does a woman have to cash in her dating chips and hopes of love, just because she’s no longer in her 20s? I could see it then, and I can see it now when I look back.Although I'm fortunate enough that I don't look like my ripe old age of 35, and am usually mistaken for being about 28 or 29, I still no longer look 25. But that fact aside, at 35, I'm far more together than I was at 25.I know who I am and what I want, and I can honestly say that my 30s, so far, have been better than my 20s.I understand that men are visual creatures and physical traits are more important to them than women, but I would think that confidence that comes with a woman in her 30s, or even 40s, would some how play a big part in what men consider sexy.However, that appears to not be the case, as this study and the OKCupid study have shown.I think this is sad for both men and women, because men are limiting themselves with their narrow scope, and women are being punished for aging.
