Dating men 2 years younger
Age disparity in sexual relationships is the difference in ages of individuals in sexual relationships.Concepts of these relationships, including what defines an age disparity, have developed over time and vary among societies.
This study used 21,245 participants between 18 and 65 years of age who were not involved in a close relationship.
A British psychological study published in Evolution and Human Behavior in 2010 concluded that men and women, in general, continued to follow traditional gender roles when searching for mates.
The study found that, as supported by other academic studies, most men preferred younger, physically attractive women, while most women, of any age, preferred successful, established men their age or older.
As well as asking participants a number of questions on mate selection criteria, they also had to provide the oldest and youngest partner they would accept.
It was found that for all ages males were willing to accept females that are slightly older than they are (on average 4.5 years older), but they accept females considerably younger than their own age (on average 10 years younger).
