I’m going to stick with that premise, since I think Ok Cupid’s data skews young.
In other words, while a 22-year-old may be hot, most 41-year-old quality men would never actually date or marry one.
If a woman dates online and thinks she can date a man 10 years younger because she “looks good for her age”, but no men 10 years younger give her the time of day (apart from requests for NSA sex), then, well, she, too, has overestimated her sexual market value. Anyone who holds out for a 500K salary but finds that no one is willing to pay it will remain unemployed for a really, really long time.Or that 95% of the country practices premarital sex. But nowhere do things get messier than when discussing the “sexual market value” of men and women. Not based on our feelings about how things should be or what would be right and just and fair.
