Older men have more dating options with age, does this sound about right though?

I saw a graph a man had made (well he wrote a book about relationships too) on the comparison of dating options or 'sexual value' as he termed it between men and women. Apparantly men have more dating options as they get older (more attractiveness- resources, status) and women have less options (reduced attractiveness) due to biology and all that. Theres a graph with a line of it for both men and women According to the graph a 30 year old woman has the same dating options (or sexual value) as a 50 year old man and a 35 year old woman has the same sexual opportunities/value as a 60 year old man. A 40 year old women has the same as a 65 year old man and a 45 year old woman .. a 70 year old man.

Does this honestly sound right lol?

Theres another graph where women just lag 5 years behind men. Seems with this one women are pretty much 'low value' for most of their lives lol.

Yes this absolutely true and easy to understand, men don't value women for their money and status but rather how they look and their femininity, women on the other value men mainly by their status and their money, so women have a short window in terms of their value because they peak in looks and fertility In their early and mid 20's, after that they decline in looks and fertility and by 35 their fertility is rapidly declining.

Men on the other hand are generally financially established in their 30's and 40's which is when they are at their peak of attractiveness to a woman and have the option of getting younger women who are in their peak as apposed to late 20's and 30's women who are past their peak attactivness and don't have the option of being so picky like in earlier years. Many women who are past their peak sexual value are delusional about their sexual value and expect men to value them by the same things that are women value men by like money and status.

Its usually men who make a big deal out of sexual market value theories. People who feel they are missing/out/struggling with an area will focus on the situation ie feminists and red pill men with their theories. People know really that women in decent shape can get sex easily from men of a variety of ages well into old age (ie cougars), should they want it. Many men however both young and old struggle and would love to have this luxury. In a way a womans sexual value will always be higher than a mans. Its 'relationship value' which can increase in a select number of men should they become 'successful' and reduces in women. Red pill theory gives men hope by emphasising this whilst also providing an opportunity to diss and 'get revenge' on older women who perhaps once rejected them using the science that reduced attractiveness and fertility results in less relationship opportunities. In textbook there are truths behind this but it doesnt hugely apply to reality. Chances are reduced but they can insult older women all they like many women still date and marry when into their 50's and 60's. So long a woman stays in shape and doesnt expect brad pitt she will have options. Statistically the average age gap among couples is 4 years.
