Why is it easier for a man to get a younger woman than for a woman to get a younger man?

I know that a man can be ugly, fat or old and still get a young hot woman if he has one or all of the three charms; money, talent, fame. But why doesn't it work the other way around? If a woman is rich, famous, talented, funny and amazing all around but happens to be ugly, fat or old, she still has almost no chance of getting a sexy, young boyfriend. Why is that?


Jens- I was hoping for a deeper, more scientific explanation. Your answer is ****. Your logic is flawed. 1. Old doesn't always mean ugly 2. Not all older men are rich. You're not very bright are you?

Update 2:

Also, who's to say that women don't want attractive men, or that men don't want rich women? Stop over-generalizing.

    Usually the bimbos that date much older guys are using them for their status/money/social standing/fame/influence. They just want a sugar daddy but they pay the price by having to have sex with the old coons...ewwwww.

    There are young men that date older women with money/influence etc but usually that is more about the woman being satisfied but not wanting to look old standing next to him so they keeep it hidden. Like a Gigolo...he gets paid after the performance...A lot of hot young men tend to be gay and will have gay sugar daddies. Guess a lot of older women don't want the lie...they dont' want to be with a man they have to pay for where as old men..dirty old men dont' give a dam...they just want the action.

    Men like pretty women. Women like rich men.

    Young men = poor

    Old men = rich

    Young women = pretty

    Old women = ugly

    How is this confusing?

    EDIT: Not all young women want old men and not all old men want young women. You made a sweeping generalization of your own. In general my generalization fits because women get uglier with age, and people get richer the more time they have to gather skills and hoard wealth. That is the point of generalizations. There are always exceptions, but this is the general obvious reality.

    Because for evolutionary reasons, most men prefer younger women (more fertile) and most women prefer older men (more resources and status). Our descendants who had these preferences produced and reared more offspring than descendants who had the opposite preferences. Hence these preferences persist in our DNA today.

    If men had the preferences to describe, young guys would be jerking off to photos of Nancy Pelosi.
