Older men stay attractive for a decade longer

Well this is good news!  Thanks to Debenhams who surveyed 1,000 women and 1000 men aged between 18 and 60 on their attitudes to male appearance.

A greater emphasis on dressing well and keeping fit has dramatically improved the physical attractiveness of older men, according to the findings.
The trend towards women marrying and having children later in life has also extended the period for which a bachelor is considered eligible.

Baldness is no longer seen as a stigma, and even a slight paunch is unlikely to render a man unattractive to women.
Many women reported finding the greater financial security of older men reassuring because it represents a better life for their children.

Ruth Attridge, a spokeswoman for the department store, said: "Older men are now remaining more attractive to women for longer than ever before.They are increasingly seen as eligible, prospective partners rather than old bores with little energy left to catch the female eye".

So there you have it!

Very interesting results, thank you for sharing the study. This will be a relief for many older men who think they are no longer eligible. Even when losing their hair!
