Default Which is the worst dating age for young/middle adult men ?

Vote for as many of the options as you want. There may be multiple age ranges that you believe are equally bad.

You left out 15-20. Doesn't that count? That's when most of the psychological damage is done.

But to answer your question 20-25. By the time they're 30 they've either given up or given in to homosexual panic.

Young to middle aged adult males.

Please vote for as many of the 5 year age ranges as you believe are the worst.

Honestly, I think it's in descending order as the maturity factor kicks in. 20-25 is the worst; 25-30 not as bad; 30-35 guys have mostly given up; 35-40 they're pretty much confirmed bachelors. 40-50 they're dead of heart attacks brought on by loneliness.

I would say young men(20-25) have it the worst. Assuming they're dealing with women of the same age, they're dealing with women who have "the list". A guy has to have a good job, "be educated", have a car, be taller than 6'2, good hair, big penis, he has to pursue me, blah, blah, blah. But as women get older and more desperate and all their friends are getting married and their biological clock is ticking, now they're just looking for a "nice guy". At that point older men have advantage.

Yeah, but by then they've lost interest.

It's not desperation...it's learning from past mistakes. Having all those rules and such rigidity doesn't help when dating and after a few years of disappointments most people learn to be more lax on whatever ridiculous requirements they might have had.

I mean, I've never really had any ridiculous requirements (money, height, weight, job etc.) but all that's ever gotten me is men who are slackers, 'bad boys' and who don't respect me. Now, my standards are a bit higher (though I'm not really looking anymore) because I've learned my lesson. Standards are a GOOD thing.

I say 30-35 because women who want to date men of that age are either all married, or still believe that they can find "the perfect" man. Very few women who aren't looking for perfection are unmarried in the lower to mid 30s. By late 30s and 40s, I think single women may finally decide that they can lower their standards a little bit, because either they're no longer thinking about starting a family (they've given up on that) or else they're desperate to start a family with any man they can find. Also the percentage of divorcees goes up compared women who are in their late 20s and lower 30s, comparatively few of which are divorced yet.

I think in the 20s, there are many women who believe they can find the perfect men, but plenty of other women who are just getting done with school and are finally ready to start looking for a man. Many of these women don't have the stratospheric standards of what's acceptable in a man that you find in single late 20s early 30s women.

But this is just one man, and only one vote (of hopefully many votes).

But that was my reasoning behind my vote.

I would think that being on the younger side for men would be less then ideal. You aren't established yet in your career, are basically broke, the girls have the 'power' for a lack of another way of saying it, they've got every swinging you know what after them.

I think as men get older, have more moola, and more confidence, and by then both men and women are a bit older and each knows what they want, a little more... IDK...

All this is hearsay, as I'm not out in the market and can't say for sure... I just know the younger guy part of it sucked...
