Dating older men while in college 15 year age difference dating

The older men get, the younger the women they message (relative to their own age).

Women, on the other hand, message and respond most often to men about their own age.

If we graduated without a future husband in tow, the men in our class would forgo us for younger, dumber women.

As the only straight woman within reach, I soon became the de facto dating consultant for my male friends, despite my waning expertise.

They were even more eager to pick my brain on all things female when I started working as an engineer and data scientist at Ok Cupid, where I analyzed data from millions of daters to get a sense of the “correct” way to date for men, women, and everyone in between.

I wasn’t sure, but there’s data to support Trevor’s claim: millennial women write the shortest profiles on Ok Cupid; profile length increases with each year they pass 35.

(Across all ages, straight women write shorter profiles than straight men.)And then there are those 50-year-old women who clean up with the 20-year-old dudes.

Could it be that the age gap exists just because it’s default behavior — a standard that persists simply due to the fact that it hasn’t been adequately challenged?
