Or maybe most successful women have masculine personalities (needed to make it ''to the top'') that are not very attractive to a guy?(Original post by Maker)
I think a lot of men don't want a more successful woman to over shadow them. Its really hard to change attitudes to the usual power distribution between men and women even now.
Also successful women usually want an even more successful man and of course, most successful men are already in a relationship or have little trouble finding a younger women.
Why so many 35-40 yo very successful women can't find a partner? Watch

Oh, I did. Come at me
If it makes them feel better, I'll let 'em have it. I'll probably look like a withered old hag by 30 anyway.

I'm not one of the stereotypical White knight male feminist users, but I have never understood this thinking.
Men aged 35-40 probably earn more than men aged 20-25 (generally speaking), but in terms of looks they are usually pretty horrendous with yellowing teeth, fat bellies etc. I just think this idea of women losing their attractiveness and men retaining it, is a kind of revenge fantasy bitter losers have.
I think for a lot of women in their late 20s or early 30's, a man in his 40s with a successful career is a surer bet than someone her own age since men that age would prefer a woman in their early to mid 20s and they have not yet have time to be successful.
A woman in her early 30s knows both her looks and her fertility are starting to decline and would opt for an older man who is a safer bet. She is competing with women in their mid 30s and early forties for the same men so in most cases the older women looses.

Men that age can still have biological children without it getting complicated. After the age of 35 the risk of complications with the baby when a woman gets pregnant increases by a lot. Plus you're creeping closer to the menopause and because biological children mean a lot to a lot of people, it's a bit of a dealbreaker. Plus apparently women age worse than men (I think it's nonsense but there we have it). I'd say it depends on the person but then I'm a girl so my opinion of what guys find attractive is irrelevant. And also I think there's still a part of many people who still cling to gender roles.

Where did OP get the idea that successful women of this age group can't find decent partners?
All my Aunts are around this age, successful and all have equally successful partners.
