Women’s Idea of the “Perfect Man” Changes as They Get Older

C. Price C. Price • 9/25/14

Who is your “perfect man”? Well, that depends on how old you are.

A new report, featured in Match.com‘s LoveGeist report, suggests a woman’s priorities for a mate simply change as she ages. According to the report, what constitutes the “perfect man” for a woman is going to be a lot different when she’s 22 than when she’s 32, 42, 52 or 62.

However, the report makes it clear women continue to maintain high standards throughout their lives, even as their values shift, ultimately finding that senior women are actually considerably pickier about who they date than young women.

 

“Women ages 18 to 24 are most interested in

a man who shares their cultural taste.”


Women ages 18 to 24 are most interested in a man who shares their cultural tastes, who their friends will like, and who is in great physical shape.

Once women enter the 25 to 34 age bracket, ambition becomes a lot more important, as does sexual compatibility. Interestingly enough, sexual compatibility is most important for women in this age bracket, even though women ages 18 to 24 value physical fitness and aesthetic attractiveness more.

Women ages 35 to 44 are the most likely to date a much older man, while women ages 45 to 54 are the most likely to date a much younger man.

Finally, women 55 and older are more interested in intelligence and a shared sense of humor more than anything else.
