That's a very valid point, Cathy. Although men die younger, they do have a longer reproductive cycle. I once had a narcissistic colleague tell me how women live longer because they don't do much physical work and lead sedentary lifestyles.
Thanks for answering, Cagsil. It's true that there are too many variables involved. from personal experience, I note that many women tend to look older than they are after giving birth to a few children, while their husbands remain youthful. This is what prompted me to ask the question.
I think women age much, much faster than men. I think in the long run men are able to hold off their looks longer without serious medical intervention. This is noticeable in Hollywood the best. For example look at top sexiest men and their age v.s top sexiest women and thier age.
Also I know I'm way better looking now than I was in my early 20's and high school..... shiver at the thought then. hhehe.
I don't think aging is related to gender. Individuals age differently. Some people look old at 40, whilst others, such as Joan Collins looks 40, even though she is almost 80, and in fact seems to get younger every year. The eye bags, she had a couple of years ago have disappeared. Maybe it is the power of prayer which is the cause.
i think evolution favored women losing their reproductive abilities long before they died so children could be assured of a mother all during the kids' development. father's being around was not so important, so it was okay for them to reproduce and shortly thereafter, exit by death.
Why on earth do you think 60 year old wrinkly fat bald men get 21 year old girls?Even if it were “natural,” there’s nothing innocent or harmless or healthy about older men pursuing ceaselessly younger women. The...
