This last item represents a significant opportunity for women in their early 20s, who are near their own reproductive peak.
It can be more challenging to meet older guys, who are unlikely to hang out in the same venues frequented by the post-college crowd.
By starting families in their thirties, forties and beyond, men could be increasing the chances that their children will develop autism, schizophrenia and other diseases often linked to new mutations.

The best way to do this, in addition to online dating, is through work, social circles and activities.

David Buss’ study of sex differences in human mate preferences found that preferences around age were quite consistent for women: Ideal age difference for women: male 3.4 years older Ideal age at marriage for women: 25.4 years Therefore…ideal age of husband at marriage: 28.8 years As you can see, male desirability peaks at 26 and stays strong until about 30, at which point it decreases rapidly.

There’s something to be said for dealing with infants in one’s youth rather than middle age.In addition to causing a lower libido, that decrease can also result in changes in mood and emotions, a decrease in strength due to loss of muscle tissue, and an increase in body fat.In other words, your loss of libido is perfectly timed to coincide with your brand new lard-ass physique and moody attitude.Young women are somewhat resistant to this idea, I have found.They tend to wonder why such a “great catch” is still on the market. Is he a reformed player who’s trying to hop off the carousel and find a good girl to marry?
It completely depends on maturity levels and compatibility. I am 22 with a 33 year old boyfriend and we are very happy together and understand each other very well. Pros and cons are the same as any relationship, because we're not talking about a significantly huge age difference here.
