Women Want Younger Men

TIME - June 13 - AYI pulled data from its 68M downloads and 20M Facebook profiles to see which subscribers are making successful matches. A woman was five times more likely to show interest in a man five years her junior that one who was five years older. Among men ages 30 to 49, 42% wouldn’t even consider a woman if she was older than him. However, if contacted by an older woman, men wouldn’t necessarily turn her down. A man is only 22% less likely to respond to an older woman than a younger woman if she initiates contact.

The Future Of Dating Is Mobile

FORBES - June 11 - Sam Yagan, OKCupid co-founder, is convinced that the future is mobile. But even Yagan admits he hasn’t figured it out. “There’s no effective app for hetero hookups, Yagan notes. One of the two apps Yagan’s most keen on tackling is dating through your social graph. That’s what Tinder, the mobile dating startup that Yagan’s IAC/InterActiveCorp Hatch Labs incubated, is doing. Tinder is now a standalone company and IAC/InterActiveCorp is its lead investor. Tinder guys say they’re innovating on the whole process of dating itself. They’ve all experienced difficulties around meeting new people and agree that rejection sucks.

The Economics Of Relationships

INDEPENDENT.CO.UK - June 11 - We tend to think that teenagers are now more sexually active. that's really not true. Teen promiscuity rates have fallen and there is an economic story behind it. It's become much harder for people who don't go on to further education to support themselves. Teens are responding to economic incentive. Divorce rates in the UK have been falling for almost 10 years. They have now fallen to where they were in 1977. One possible explanation is how they meet. The Internet opens up the market for dating and marriage, the pool becomes much bigger, which leads to people searching for longer and searching for somebody who is more perfect for them. Because women live longer we tend to think that they are disadvantaged. Early in life we assume that women are looking for a longer-term commitment and men for short-term relationships, but later in life, women are actually looking for short-term relationships and it's the men who are looking for the longer-term commitment because they're hoping to find somebody who will take care of them when they reach old age. When older people search online, the women are actually very picky whereas men actually become much less picky as they get older. A lot of older men end up with women who are older than them.
