What is the Most Attractive Age For Men and For Women?

What is the most attractive age for men and for women?

It’s a question we are all wondering.  Is there a “most attractive” age for men and women? Is the age the same or different for males and females? Luckily for me, there are many studies done on this subject, so I was able to find lots of statistics on what the most attractive age is. Will it be all over by age 40, or can you still look as sexy as George Clooney and Elle McPherson? George is 51 and Elle is either 49 or 50; it’s interesting to note that Wikipedia has two birth dates for her!

First – what do we find attractive?

What do women say is attractive in men?

So, ladies what do you like? I have previously written a post on what I find attractive in men. It seems that some of the things I have mentioned are attributes that other women admire too.

According to research broken down by The Independent, women tend to be more attracted to men who have a relatively narrow waist, a V-shaped torso, and broad shoulders. Women also tend to preference men who are taller than they are, and display a high degree of facial symmetry, as well as relatively masculine facial dimorphism, according to a study called Sex-Dimorphic Face Shape Preference in Heterosexual and Homosexual Men and Women.

What do men say is attractive in women?

What do men like? I also wrote a post where I broke down my body for my readers, mentioning all the things I love and hate. Hey, it’s just a body, right? She’s a good girl but she’s not all of me. The Body causes me trouble every now and then, but on the whole, we get along.

So what do men find hot? Attractiveness research indicates that heterosexual men tend to be attracted to young and beautiful women with bodily symmetry. Evolutionary psychologists attribute such attraction to an evaluation of the fertility potential in a prospective mate. (source: Wikipedia)

Hmmm. So it seems that symmetry is a major factor in attractiveness. I have to say that it’s one thing I have never thought about. I can say for sure that I am not perfectly symmetrical. I’m not wonky, though.

Grey hairs on men OK, but grey hairs on women are not

I found one survey that said this about grey hair: ‘When respondents were asked to use a word to describe grey hair on men the top answer was “distinguished,” but for grey hair on women it was “old.”’ Sheesh. I do not have any greys yet and I don’t plan to get them until I hit 60.  Right now I am nearly 35 and some reports might suggest that it is already all over for me!

Women are most attractive at age 30

I found one online source that conducted a study of 2,000 people across the United States. It found that women were considered to have reached their peak at 30, start to show signs of ageing at 41, stop looking “sexy” at 53, and are “old” at 55.

OK – that’s good news. According to the study I still have nearly 20 ‘sexy’ years left before I am ‘old’.

Men are delusional and want much younger women

What is the Most Attractive Age For Men and For Women? | Older couple

Have you heard of dating website, eHarmony? It’s all the rage here in Australia but I’m not keen on these sites. If you’re a halfway decent looking girl you get bombarded with messages from tattooed, shirtless yobbos and it’s very hard to deal with. I found an interesting statistic that mentioned:

Cross-cultural data shows that the reproductive success of women is tied to their youth and physical attractiveness… 25% of eHarmony’s male customers over the age of 50 request to only be matched with women younger than 40.

The older we get, the more dates men get, the fewer women get

If you’re a chick, your ‘dating pool’ is shrinking, according to a recent OkCupid study. It found that after age 26 men have a larger potential dating pool than women; by 48 their pool is almost twice as large. The median 31 years-old male user searches for women aged 22 to 35, while the median 42 years-old male searches for women 27 to 45.  (source)

30 years old blokes are still “trying it on” with teen girls

What is the Most Attractive Age For Men and For Women? | Younger Couple

Pfft! I do believe this since one of my most popular posts is about my boobs and because one of the tags is teen breasts, I get a lot of traffic that is probably dirty old men hoping to score a peep at some young norks. Please note, when I say ‘teen’ I guess these sites are referring to women who are 18 and 19, not younger.

Here is the quote on dirty old men: ‘The age skew is even greater with messages to other users; the median 30 years-old male messages teenage girls as often as women his own age, while mostly ignoring women a few years older than him. Excluding the most and least beautiful 10% of women, however, women’s attractiveness does not change between 18 and 40.’ (source)

      Hi Splooge –

      Interesting point – then how does it work in reverse? Why would younger women be attracted to older (less fertile) men, I wonder?

          Hi Claire

          Thanks for comments. I have heard that, in fact, men do lose fertility with age, the same as women. They have lower sperm counts and less functioning (“lazy”) sperm after age 45. Here’s a link resource: http://www.mommyish.com/2011/10/20/men-have-a-biological-clock-too-259/

          However, as you say, there are heaps of resources that say fertility in men is good until 55. Who knows? I’m sure it may be down to the individual.

          Thanks again and have a great day.

            In evolutionary terms, if an older man is healthy and fit, he has demonstrated his genetic superiority.

            (sperm heath is related to overall health–healthy older men tend to be very fertile)

            An older woman that is healthy also demonstrates her genetic superiority, however she is not fertile at all.

          2. December 29, 2014

            Hi Wallace,

            I really like your comment, but we all know that the statement “healthy older men tend to be very fertile” is under discussion/debate. There are lots of studies that suggest that sperm goes “off”, much like women’s eggs. However, I’d love to see more research into this stuff because I know we’re all fed lots of myths and the truth is very individualistic.

            Thanks again for your thoughts,

            Alyce i think you may be a little off with your logic. Fertility in men and youth isnt something that matters like it does for women. Men dont have to get pregnant and raise the child. Even if men do lose sperm count on their 50s which honostly is pretty old, they can still EASILY get your pregnant. However being pregnant at 50 for a women is one hell of an ordeal. The issue of ferility has a lot to do with child birth. Thats some serious buisness akd you need a young healthy woman.

            The issue for women is can he protect me? Can he provide for me? Is he an alpha male? This is what they desire. They want youth, social status, and protection on an instintual level. Leadership. Being fertile as in having slightly more sperm or not really doesnt make a womans survival chances any better or worse and therefore is irrelavent. Being young and youthful for a woman is VERY important. You need to survive pregnancy and raise this child which will be totally dependant on your body for milk and to carry around for YEARS. You need a young body for that. Woman need an alpha male protecter. Not a 20 year old filled with extra sperm and no social status more often than not. That is why woman developed to find slightly older faces better looking. 28-32 is prime sex appeal for a man. Studies also found (the horrible truth for woman) that men always find 20 year olds the most attractive no matter what their own age is.

          4. September 12, 2016

            Hi Alex,

            Thanks for your comment but your sentence, “Even if men do lose sperm count on their 50s which honestly is pretty old, they can still EASILY get your pregnant,” is completely subjective and therefore not really accurate. Some men in their 50s can father children, some can’t. I find your comment that “women have developed to find slightly older faces better looking” quite laughable as well. However, I’d love to see that particular study – so if you can recall it, please link!

            Thanks for taking the time to comment.

        Men arent carrying and raising the babies historically. Fertilitiy isnt the issue. Woman want an alpha male. I.E. social status/physical strength/resources (money/job).

        Woman biologically want older because older means established and more powerful. Hence a 30 year old man generally is still youthful and strong and athletic physically in many cases but has far more resources and typically a leadership role in society than a 21 year old man for instance. Ferility isnt what woman are after. Alpha male protectors are. And alpha male means social status/resources/and physical aptitude which you can argue peak on men in the late 20s early 30s.

          Strength, virility, youth, its a two way street…. i also have net worth 600k, i made 2 million in the NFL, im a software engineer, all the engineers are 19-38 (yes the largest growing industry in the US)
          im 22 hah old cuck get jealous when they see my career
          old men have low T, and are fat
          fat = estrogen

          1. July 7, 2017

            Hi Tre,

            Well, what can I say. Lots of women love older men, and although 600K is very nice – some men have even more to offer than that. My first older man had 2 porches, a penthouse, a helicopter and a jet – but I honestly loved him because he was a great conversationalist. It might be a cliche, but it’s truly what’s inside that counts – if we don’t have much in common or much to talk about with our lovers, the relationship never lasts.
            Thanks for your comments and best of luck in the romance stakes.

            Alyce shut the f**k up talking about a old man with a bunch of money you know what that makes you a whore.. a YOUNG guy mentioned he had great success in his youth and you actually managed to down play it by saying you dated a old man who had a penthouse and private jet, as aggressive as trey Holliday seemed you just admitted that you quoted your self out for money………….. oh and that was the *first* older man how did you meet someone with such a social class disparity between you? You probably if true were offered money either directly or indirectly, old men are not sexy I am a old man my self and I liked to think I could be like Tom cruise but it’s all fantasy, obsession like a fairy tale, and don’t give me your rebuttal because if you argue your only arguing my opinion and observation which is MINE not everything you say is right… right? Maybe we are all wrong some of the times??? Except you of course

          3. May 27, 2018

            Dear oh Dear Mr Goon,

            Salty, much? I happened to love the rich older guy, despite his wealth. To answer your question, we were introduced by our hairdresser, which goes to show that fate often plays a part in these sorts of meetings. He was 20 years my senior and rich as Roosevelt, but had a lot of issues, and was needy for love. My next boyfriend was 23 years my senior, and worked for the council and lived in a one-room flat. I loved them both – age is just a number to me. I was also unable to think of myself as a w***e, as I am independently wealthy, and have always worked. Now I am married, and these are just nice memories.

            Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

      what a load of rubbish Claire. Many men over 50 cant even get erections, what the point of marrying a rich old guy if you cant reproduce. Also 95% of women marry men 10 years of their age. Im sure they had the opportunity but they decided to go with poor younger men than the doctor down the street. Also younger men are able to make a old woman in her 40s pregnant than a guy her age. If women are so interested in money why do we have pictures of hot guys on our wall instead of pictures of bill gates. Women are able to get their own money today and we are adaptive we learned to drive cars, thats not nature, it is.

      1. September 3, 2015

        Hi Jo-

        Thanks for your thoughts! Yes, the article mentions several studies that have differing results – so I agree that there is no hard and fast rule here! And you are correct, men’s fertility does drop with age like women’s – but not as dramatically as the toll on their bodies is not as great as with women and childbirth. Not sure what you mean by, “Also 95% of women marry men 10 years of their age.” Do you mean – “within a 10 year gap of their age”?

    There is something wrong with me then. I am more attracted to women in their 40s than 20 somethings and have been for most of my adult life..I’d much rather go to theatre and cultural holidays than club 18-30…..I think I am on a branch of evolution that does not go very far though…

    1. June 15, 2015

      Hi Andrew-

      Each to their own! I don’t see that there’s anything wrong with that. You may be attracted to confidence and power, and women who are settled in their own skin. Our 20s can be fraught with feelings of self doubt and women and men in their 20s have lots of self discovery to do (in most cases).

      Good luck on your search for the perfect partner – remember, it’s what is inside that counts; someone’s morals, ethics and standards. Age is just a number.

      All the best, Alyce

    There are more women in the world then men apart from this Men are getting die in Wars, at terrorist attack, road accident etc

    Women are capable to live more then a men physically, specially married once

    What i think is that it is important for the men to get marry to a girl who is atleast 10year younger from him from example men 28, women 18/19 so when he gets die so the women can take care for the children for long

    1. May 20, 2016

      Hi Mansoor,

      Thanks for your comment, but really, it doesn’t make much sense! After all, it’s not just men that die in wars, traffic accidents and terrorist attacks, right? Also, a man’s and a woman’s life expectancy is not that different – you are correct that women have a longer life expectancy – but it’s nowhere near 10 years – you know that, right? It’s more like 2-4 years, varying by country. For example, in Australia (where I live) males live to 80.1 and females to 84.3. From the tone of your comment, I am guessing you’re single. Might want to modernise your views slightly or you may not find a partner at all.

    Rather depressing article, as being read by a 50-year-old woman, but then I reflect on the fact that I have made such dramatic lifestyle changes [whole food vegan, etc] that I have the body I wished for 20 years ago, and feel amazing and all woman! I have come into my own…and it shows. Guys of all ages check me out every day. So as for the article, well, so what? Attractiveness starts inside. Don’t let anybody tell you different!!!

    1. June 2, 2016

      Hi Kira,
      Wow, I love your comment and thanks so much for taking the time to connect. I agree that many people get BETTER as we age! When I was a teen and in my early 20s, I was harder on myself; I thought all my little imperfections mattered. Now that I am well into my 30s, I look at my body and think, “Hey, she’s not so bad!” I am far from perfect, but I have come to love and trust this vessel that I am in. I am so pleased to hear that you feel even better and more vibrant in your 50s – that’s a huge achievement and I’m not surprised you’re still turning heads – you sound so confident and self-assured; two very attractive qualities!

      Check out my other post Getting older for women: Which parts of my body will get better with age? (Although in hindsight I wouldn’t have singled out women in the title – that’s a bit sexist!)


      Hope you have a great week.

    1. July 28, 2016

      Hi Mike,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Where I live (in Sydney, Australia) “blokes” just means “men” and is not considered a derogatory term. Men who habitually seek out younger women are often delusional, as they fail to see that their advances are often perceived as “creepy” by younger chicks. Most men and women, statistically, don’t engage in age gap relationships. They are not the norm but that’s not to say that there are not many successful examples.

      Thanks very much for that feedback, and I agree 100% – I wrote this article quite a while ago and I have now amended to show my sources. The first reference to Wikipedia has to stand – as I really do find it amusing that Elle McPherson has a “shifting birth date”. Fair enough I say – after 25 no one wants to admit their age anyway!

She could not give child due to reproductive problem. Yes she has the appeal and the body. Can she get a long term partner?Hoping for your reply.

    1. August 25, 2016

      Hi Mike,

      Thanks so much for getting in touch. You sound very concerned for your ex partner, why is that? If you have broken up – cut the cord, it no longer matters what she does. Whether she finds another partner or not is not your concern, is it? You should focus on your needs and your life. As to whether your ex will find another partner, who can say? You were obviously attracted to her so it stands to reason that others will be too. There are millions of poeple in their 40s and beyond who find new, successful partnerships – age is not a barrier to love.

      Thanks for your comment and best of luck in your situation.

    I find it repulsive and disgusting when a 30+ year old man attempts to court a girl as young as 18. People say this is normal but I’m convinced they’re delusional. They failed to find a woman in their youth due to their failures and now want to force a young woman on them due to their wealth and lust. It’s disgusting to know that we live in a society where an innocent, young girl can essentially be purchased for pleasure, atleast this is more prevalant in decadant nations.

    1. August 29, 2016

      Hi John,

      Wow – strong words, you are clearly a man of passion. Age gap relationships have been happening since the beginning of civilized society and most probably before. Personally, I think there is no harm in sensible age-gap relationships so long as both the parties involved are adults – and by adults I mean people over the age of about 25. Also, age gap relationships are increasingly happening both ways, now there are plenty of younger men seeking relationships with older women, take for example Kris Jenner and Kylie Minogue. Thanks for your comment and have a nice day.

    Very interesting article! I thought I’d share personal experience. I’m 63 and in a long-term relationship with a man a few years younger. We met several years ago on a dating site. I have taken care of my health and appearance and had many men younger than me contacting me when I was online dating. I even dated one who was 13 years younger who thought I was lying about my age and stating it to be older than it was. I don’t know about in your part of the world, but I can tell you that here in the US, very very few men over the age of 50 look good or healthy and the vast majority over 60 are overweight/obese with many health problems. One of the biggest problem with men in the US is erection failure due to our toxic food supply and the endocrine disrupting chemicals in our environment. I read an article about doctors seeing more and more men in their 30’s and even younger with these problems. Maybe our toxic planet will turn this upside down so that older women will have the advantage going forward. Who knows!

      Hi Haley,

      Thanks for getting in touch and I am so glad that you have looked after your health. Yes, where I live in Australia, we do have a reputation for healthy, robust men but sadly, we have obesity rates very much in line with the US, that is to say – lots of people are overweight and obese; the risk only increasing with age. I love the notion that the world will turn on its head (as you say) and older women will have their time in the sun – it’s about bloody time if you ask me! Thanks for your comments and keep up the good work!

    It would be nice to see a study on this broken down by ethnicities. My mother is reaching her 40s pregnant with a healthy baby. However people mistaken her for my sister sometimes younger sister because she is shorter than me and I just turned 22. Where hispanic and indigenous. My grandmother hasnt aged much as well, and she was married a few years ago to a younger man 15 years younger than her. He thought she was younger as well, he passed unfortunately. I’ve just notice the more pigmentation a person has along with being healthy inside and out, seems to slow down or has less of an aging process. But most of my family is genetically like that, there are days depending on what my mom wears she looks like shes in high school, and has been mistaken for a student when she picked up my youngest sister at school once.

      Hi Casandra,

      Thanks so much for your comments. Yes, a study by cultural heritage would be great to see! I have one parent who is Mediterranean (Slovenia) and one who is Caucasian (Ireland) and I live in a country where we have high instances of skin cancer and premature ageing (Australia). I can say from personal experience that high melanin is beneficial to youthfulness appearance. As the supermodel Naomi Campbell said (and I quote) “black don’t crack”. (QUOTE) I don’t see myself as gorgeous and I’m fed up with people saying I’ve had plastic surgery and lipo. I don’t need it, because black don’t crack.

      While I may not be as lucky as Naomi – I love the fact that she’s confirming that her cultural heritage is in part related to her youthful appearance.
      Thanks for your comments and talk again soon.

    There about the same amount of men and women actually there more men born slightly. And what does women living longer have to do with men wanting younger women ?

      Hi Erikq,

      Yes, you are correct – worldwide, there are 100 women per 107 men, approximately. I’m not sure what your comment, “And what does women living longer have to do with men wanting younger women?” means exactly. One study I found suggested that “Cross-cultural data shows that the reproductive success of women is tied to their youth and physical attractiveness,” which might be one of the theories as to why men seek out younger women. Women do outlive men, that’s also true, so their “dating pool” shrinks with age.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Love, Alyce

    Why are you so quick to label men seeking younger women “delusional”? You’ve said yourself that age is just a number. Of course, you were just saying that in support of a younger man looking for older women… Are older women “delusional” for wanting younger men? Or does it only work in your favor?

    This article seems to be yet another manifestation of women past their prime trying to shame men into finding them as attractive as their younger (and yes, hotter) counterparts. It’s amazing that people just can’t allow a 20 year old woman to reject or accept a man’s advances on her own. Instead we have hordes of women humiliating men out of even making an attempt. It’s almost as if these women are aware that if he does make an attempt he may very well get the girl! They can’t have that now can they!!!

    Here’s the brutal truth: 35-40 year old women cannot compete with 20-25 year old women. Obviously there are MANY exceptions. A women who takes care of her body will always look better than one who doesn’t no matter the age (within reason). However, a fit 23 year old will always be hotter than a fit 35 year old (ignoring innate beauty like facial features and the like).

    And now a more comforting truth: Ladies, you don’t need to be the hottest thing in the room to attract a decent guy. You just need to be the best YOU can be. Eat right, exercise and BE KIND and you’re already doing better than the bulk of the population.

      Hiya Austin-

      Woooah Sailor! You make some interesting points. As you say, age is just a number! In terms of the ‘delusional’ comment; well, let’s be honest here. Many people (men AND women) think that their cache with the opposite sex is higher than it really is. I have found in my research (and from personal experience) that younger women DO in fact genuinely find older men attractive http://alycevayleauthor.com/2014/04/17/are-older-men-attractive/ the point is that we shouldn’t really base our feelings of attraction on age alone. Open up your ideas of what attractive is and the dating pool becomes broader – and that’s a good thing!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment,

      All the best, Alyce

      It is fortunate that the father of the composer Geoge Frideric Handel was delusional, otherwise the world would have been deprived of the music of the world’s greatest composer. Handel’s father was 63 when Handel was born and his wife was much younger than him.

    Hi Alyce,

    Rarely do I find a woman even willing to address the issues you discuss. Many say, “well, i am 55 and I am hot and ….”. These “rules” are general rules, which means they apply most of the time, but not all.

    I understand why women dont want to discuss theses issues. From birth to 18, most females are treated more gently than males. Girls are taught that their looks are more important than their brains, at a minimum by society. Males, on the other hand, are competing at sports and almost everything else,, building our self confidence.

    Ever notice That The women who had a father who was a badass and taught his girls to be confident and tough and to be able to take care of themselves physically (self-defense/fighting/sports) mentally (being good at school) and financially ( so she will be able to take care of her self)…. those girls always develop into very confident self supporting women who would not except an idiot into their lives, nor do they need a man’s approval or complements to boost their self-esteem. Many of them end up in, good healthy relationships, because dad also has taught them that there is a difference between men and women, that many women today don’t want to admit.

    After 18 until about 30, Women have all the men ages 18 to 70 chasing after them. After age 35, that narrows to the man 18 to 21 and 50 to 70.

    On the other hand, men have a hard time getting girls to not look at older guys when men are between the ages of 18 and 25, traditionally before we are here established financially or in our professions. After age 30, we are well on our way financially .
    and professionally and those that are so inclinec really have the pick of the litter.

    Women who would not talk to us between the ages of 18 to 25, are now quite happy to date us. At that point, Women get angry because between the ages of 25 and 35, women want to get married and have babies generally speaking. But, many men were not always been treated great during the earlier years and so they know that if they pretend to go along with wanting kids…. they can string A girl out for 2 to 3 years. While this may seem mean, many of those same women did about the same when they were younger happily using men….and their money…. and did not worry about mens’ feelings or the future, because there was always a nice large pool of other men who would step in and date them. So they ran around with the “cool” loser instead of the nice guy.

    Ask Any woman after age 35 who gets divorced and she will tell you that she cannot find a good man. Ask a man after age 35 Who gets divorced and he will tell you it’s like a banquet out there. He can date almost anybody he wants.

    But much of the situation is simply biological, I think you are putting a little too much emphasis on polls and research that are not always accurate (remember Hillary Clinton was supposed to win the election hands-down). Plenty of nice guys who got stung when they were younger or when they first were married, after they got divorced they look at dating in the same way as women did when they were 18 to 25. That is, that the opposite sex is expendable. Women like to gloss over the fact that their behavior during their younger years may have not always been kind and honest …..as they know demand from men…Now that their stock is falling and they want to get married. It is a cruel twist I must say. However, I do notice that the women who have always been pretty decent man always seem to do OK and it was only those who have always been able to push men around or always get their way…lthose women take it hardest because now they are exactly the type of women that men will use and toss away.. Karma always comes around.
