50 year old man dating younger women
It appears this age gap is largely driven by dudes.Men start 80% of conversations on Ok Cupid, and they tend to message younger women.I asked my friend Trevor, a 28-year-old mathematician, what he made of it.“Well to be honest,” said Trevor, “I usually go for older women.
no stupid selfie-only profiles.”Did that explain it?In college I studied Computer Science and forgot how to talk to women.There just weren’t any of them, anywhere (or if there were, they were in hiding).The older men get, the younger the women they message (relative to their own age).
Women, on the other hand, message and respond most often to men about their own age.
When I was a junior in college, a woman called “The Princeton Mom” wrote into our school newspaper telling undergraduate women to “Find a husband on campus before you graduate.”“Forget about having it all, or not having it all, leaning in or leaning out,” she said.
