Men deem women acceptable at about the same age or younger until they reach about 40.
After that, their maximum age begins to decrease, and they believe they should be with women who are younger than their own age. When it comes to women, the rule does not follow along with the same guidelines.
Even men limit the age of a girl acceptable to fantasize about.
When it comes to women choosing a relationship, they prefer a man much closer to their own age than someone much older.
The rule underestimates women considering someone close to their own age as much more acceptable.
But the older a man gets, the more the gap widens instead of shrinks.
