The proportion of Japanese who had never married by the age of 50 rose from 5% in 1970 to 16% in 2010 (see chart).The “half your age plus seven” rule of thumb probably helps you avoid being a creep, but is it accurate?Much to my surprise, when overlaying a line representing the rule of thumb on Kenrick and Keefe’s results (see red line in the figure below), you can see it closely matches the low end of the range (i.e., youngest preferred) for all but the oldest men.Men, in contrast, are hypothesized to be most attracted to women in their reproductive prime, which tends to be when they are younger. Women’s preferences, on the other hand, hold relatively constant across their lives, not going more than a few years below their own age (extra-credit if you can identify the "cougar zone" in this figure), but women remain keen on men up to 10 years older than themselves. However, younger men (i.e., in their 20’s) tend to be married to someone of a similar age, but as they get older their wives get younger.For example, by their 50’s the average male has a wife who is 10 years younger than him.Also, science only looked at fertility in women up until recently.Now science has studied mens ability to father children and discovered that there is an increased risk of miscarriage and birth deformities when the male partner is over 35.Now that we don't need to do that we're going for younger men.Literally, we are choosing physical attraction over security because we now have options that never existed for us before.Anyone looking for an age gap relationship should try Friends with Benefits UK, where the members span from fresh faced young adults to mature silver foxes and the people are open minded, respectful and free from prejudice.
