I almost don't have words for this....just one comes to mind. Bummer.
The journal Science Advances published a study that showed when it comes to online dating, women are the most desirable at age 18, while men's most desirable age is 50. Yep, men's "desirability" increases with age with the peak at 50, while women peak early and only decrease from there. Not sure of the exact science behind the reasoning but hoping this only holds true for online dating...who am I kidding, we know it doesn't. The New York Times also adds that this study is not an anomaly or alone in finding these results so click the link in the tweet below to read more!

If you're #onlinedating, you're probably messaging people who are out of your league. A new study, published in the journal Science Advances Wednesday — which analyzed data from a pool of tens of thousands of online dating profiles in New York, Boston, Seattle, and Chicago — found that people consistently message potential mates who are out of their league. What a shock. Study authors Elizabeth Bruch and Mark Newman pulled information from profiles and plugged it into an algorithm which took into account age, education, gender, and race/ethnicity in relation to the number of messages received among heterosexual individuals.
