Dating preferences of men and women
But more importantly: Is it even a relevant and comparable retort?
Yes, weight, similarly to height, can be difficult to gauge from images in some cases, and (some) plus size women have a tendency to try every trick in the book to hide any extra pounds behind angles, and filters.
In the same vein, it is indeed absolutely okay for a guy to have his own preferences for physical attributes such as a girl’s weight.
He just shouldn’t expect any kind of positive reaction to asking about it in such a manner.
People seemed pretty happy that he ended up with someone age appropriate.
Sure, but I don’t think that was really surprising.
If we phrase the question as such, most people would answer “Yes”, without having to give it too much thought. Having a preference for certain physical attributes is everyone’s right, and it’s also completely normal. I am asking because while this may not be a controversial question in general, women preferring taller men has been a sort of hot button issue among (male) Tinder/Bumble/Hinge users, for example on the r/Tinder subreddit. Or maybe that’s just (some of) the r/Tinder guys, while the woman in question deletes this match and responds to one of her other dozen new messages instead.
So is society not as harsh on women about their looks and aging as people maybe think?Women might look for a partner with more resources with which to care for any children.The older men get, typically, the more power they have, the more monetary resources they have, and they may be able to provide for any children.There may be some false pressure women are putting on each other and that the media is driving. So maturity can be attractive to men and women, as long as there’s chemistry? World knowledge increases as we get older for both men and women, and what you see here is a preference for that. I recently asked my husband if he’d ever date anyone in their twenties and he said ‘God no.’ Although physically attractive, I don’t think that’s where his mind is at. Women don’t want to raise their partners, but neither do men.But then maybe there’s a strong pull from biology or media, or perhaps both. Is it that both men and women get more attractive with age?
So this power and money is positive status in our society [and may be less evolutionary than societal].
