Men, and especially older men, generally prefer younger women because such a preference has helped them to achieve greater reproductive success throughout human evolutionary history.Men with these preferences had more offspring, and left behind more copies of their genes – genes which code for these age preferences.Why do preferences for younger women lead to greater reproductive success?For example, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are frequently (and I think very successfully) cast opposite each other as romantic leads, despite their sixteen year age gap.An interesting aside for film fans: When the actors were under thirty-five, Harrison Ford enjoyed the greatest average age gap between himself and his leading ladies.
However, it is slightly misleading to claim that men simply prefer younger women. Buss’ study estimates this to be about twenty-five years of age, but more recent research suggests it may be around thirty.
