You can build your profile and instantly send messages to someone who is significantly older or younger than you are.You can add friends, share content and chat with others absolutely 100% free, so why pay to join an age gap dating site?The “half your age plus seven” rule of thumb probably helps you avoid being a creep, but is it accurate?Much to my surprise, when overlaying a line representing the rule of thumb on Kenrick and Keefe’s results (see red line in the figure below), you can see it closely matches the low end of the range (i.e., youngest preferred) for all but the oldest men.
Many focus on the financial aspects since older men tend to be more established career wise but there is so much more to them.Men, in contrast, are hypothesized to be most attracted to women in their reproductive prime, which tends to be when they are younger. Women’s preferences, on the other hand, hold relatively constant across their lives, not going more than a few years below their own age (extra-credit if you can identify the “cougar zone” in this figure), but women remain keen on men up to 10 years older than themselves. However, younger men (i.e., in their 20’s) tend to be married to someone of a similar age, but as they get older their wives get younger.For example, by their 50’s the average male has a wife who is 10 years younger than him.I started this site in 2007 after I joined a couple of the popular "age gap dating sites" out there.I quickly found out I had wasted a whole lot of money. Would you like to socialize with someone who is significantly older or younger?
