CASE 1: at the age range that people (mainly women) want to marry, men are settling in their careers, which makes their income (and value) skyrocket.

women on the other hand, know that makeup cannot save them for much longer. their looks (which is their entire worth) begin to fade at the end of their 20s, and by the time they are around 34, it is far too late to find a man. no man wants to be stuck with an aging woman.

CASE 2: men who get more partners have a higher value. women typically need others to make up their minds for them. when one woman likes a man, more women like that man. it's why guys in relationships get hit on more. it's called pre-approval.

women, on the other hand, depreciate when having many partners. it's like a car with high mileage. no one wants one.

Not true. In general, a man's desirability is completely independent of his income/status (barring extreme examples such as a 7 figure salary or celebrity status), it really is all about your physical attractiveness as a man.

However, I will say that some men peak in physical attractiveness at around late 20s/early 30s, while almost all women peak around age 17 and then their desirability falls off with every year after that, especially towards the later 20s/early 30s.

HAHAHA!

You think that single women over the age of 34 are done for?

I dare you to go to Match.com right now and look up women ages 50 to 60 in your zip code and see what their requirements are for height, ethnicity, and income.

You'll soon find out that the only time it becomes easy with women is the first day you are in your grave.

Young single women don't have careers and high incomes? Hate to break it to you, little boy, but they are kicking man-ass in that department.

Reverse Gender Gap: Study Says Young, Childless Women Earn More Than Men - ABC News

That's from the 2010 Census. I wonder how it's changed since then?

First paragraph is true.

I would say a woman's beauty (variable) peaks at around mid to late 20s. Depends on the woman and her bone structure. But it doesn't matter. Women who are average or higher will have options until the day they die. OK. Maybe that's exaggerating a bit. Maybe age 65-70.

There's always some guys who try and fool themselves into thinking that a day will come where women won't have as many options, so they will become attractive to them. It won't. Either get $, or go through numbers and take your rejections.

umm... men still make more money than women. and um... women largely choose useless degrees and have seen no growth in STEM fields in over 10 years

"
The 81:100 claim is based on 2010 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Specifically, it compares the median weekly earnings of full-time wage and salary workers over age 16. For men, itís $824. For women, itís $669, or 81 percent of $824. But itís not for doing the same job. Thatís the figure for all men and all women, not for men and women in the same industry or job type.
So letís alter that statement to make it less wrong:

ĒThe median female wage in the U.S. is only 81% of the median male wage.Ē

forbes

right... and that's why so many women become desperate at the end of their 20s and want marry, right? because their appearances definitely aren't falling off and they're definitely not losing value.

lol at people being delusional about income not making a difference in attraction. most women wouldn't be with their guy if he wasn't doing better than her. women still look for a man to live off of. it's dressed up as "financially secure."

Why would you be interested in the earnings of older married women with children. Isn't your dating demographic single childless women under 30? THE ONES WHO ARE OUTEARNING YOU?

Keep living in the past if you like. Maybe one day you will get a date with a 40-year-old mom on food stamps and you can be a Big Man.
