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 Mc Pherson? I have previously written a post on what I find attractive in men.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. I also wrote a post where I broke down my body for my readers, mentioning all the things I love and hate. Evolutionary psychologists attribute such attraction to an evaluation of the fertility potential in a prospective mate. 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. Is there a “most attractive” age for men and women?Is the age the same or different for males and females?Mere months after Tinder made headlines for firing its only female co-founder under very shady circumstances, everyone’s favorite hook-up app has landed itself in a hot new drama — this one relating to how Tinder treats online daters of different ages.This week, the company rolled out a premium, paid version called “Tinder Plus,” which lets users manually change their locations and undo “swipes” that they regret.
I’m still dining on cereal for dinner in a rent controlled apartment, navigating career steps, and writing about dating debacles.I can say for sure that I am not perfectly symmetrical. 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.Not surprisingly, this pricing system has really pissed some people off.Tinder justifies the difference by claiming it has tests showing younger people are “more budget constrained.” But critics have fired back with a much less generous implication: Old people are desperate.“Tinder has, with the foresight of an evil genius, identified the age at which you start to wonder whether you might be single forever—or at least when parental queries about your relationship status start to become quite panicked,” writes Daisy Buchanan, author of a book on online dating (and not, I should point out, the character from ).
