Once women hit 19 they’re officially over the hill.

Most of my readers would be familiar with Rollo’s sexual market value graph but for those who haven’t come across it before, here it is in all its glory.

In the graph women’s SMV peaks at 23 and men’s peaks at 38. The decline for women is precipitous while more gradual for men.

Well it transpires that the mainstream media is catching up with this manosphere staple, courtesy of this article in The Atlantic – Online dating study, out of your league. (H/T Apex Predator for the link.)

In the new study, published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, Bruch and her colleagues analyzed thousands of messages exchanged on a “popular, free online-dating service” between more than 186,000 straight men and women. They looked only at four metro areas—New York, Boston, Chicago, and Seattle—and only at messages from January 2014.

I know, I know; it’s a study, and we all know how much I hold those in disdain. But let’s run with this one for a bit and see where the rabbit hole takes us.

Across the four cities and the thousands of users, consistent patterns around age, race, and education level emerge. White men and Asian women are consistently more desired than other users, while black women rank anomalously lower.

Feeling good so far …

But “what we are seeing is overwhelmingly the effect of white preferences,” she cautioned. “This site is predominantly white, 70 percent white. If this was a site that was 20 percent white, we may see a totally different desirability hierarchy.”

Muh racial stereotypes!!

Okay, let’s look at some of the conclusions that the researchers took from their study. Hold on to your hats, fugganaughts! It’s going to be one hell of a red pill ride.

In the study, men’s desirability peaks at age 50. But women’s desirability starts high at age 18 and falls throughout their lifespan.

Oh man, let this be true, let this so much be true. 50 is so much better than 38.

Is that not the most beautiful graph that you have ever seen? I reckon I should make posters out of that image and sell them online. If this is accurate then Rollo was on the money but slightly off target. The SMV curve is much more brutal for women than he imagined it to be, while for men we build up to a strong 50 years of age and then keep on mightily going. So glorious.

“I mean, everybody knows—and as a sociologist, it’s been shown—that older women have a harder time in the dating market. But I hadn’t expected to see their desirability drop off from the time they’re 18 to the time they’re 65,” Bruch told me.

AHAHAHAHAHAA! According to your data, 19 is over the hill, sweetheart.

Women’s prospects dim not only as they age, but as they achieve the highest level of education.

A more educated man is almost always more desirable, on average: Men with postgraduate degrees outperform men with bachelor’s degrees; men with bachelor’s degrees beat high-school graduates.

“But for women, an undergraduate degree is most desirable,” the study says. “Postgraduate education is associated with decreased desirability among women.”

I tell you what I’ll be eventually looking for in my next women; no fucking degree at all.

Men did not find more success when they sent happy messages.

Across all four cities, men tended to use less positive language when messaging more desirable women. They may have stumbled upon this strategy through trial and error because “in all four cities, men experience slightly lower reply rates when they write more positively worded messages.”

If you suck up then you shall fail.

Your online-dating experience is not as bad as this poor woman’s in New York.

“The most popular individual in our four cities, a 30-year-old woman living in New York, received 1504 messages during the period of observation,” the study says. This is “equivalent to one message every 30 min, day and night, for the entire month.” Yikes.

Photos or it didn’t happen.

This study is a nuclear atomic bomb radiation hydrogen bomb blast radius to power women, career women, university women, and women with a birthday higher than 18 everywhere. I mean, how they ever got it published is beyond me as it simply destroys the femistatists’ entire reason for existing in one fell swoop.

As a newly single 47 year old man, I love it.

    ‘In the study, men’s desirability peaks at age 50. But women’s desirability starts high at age 18 and falls throughout their lifespan.’

    Probably depends on the guy but my father said a man’s ‘peak’ is 33…because that’s when Christ died. Now whether that has anything to do with desirability with women…I don’t know but that age makes sense to me.

    However unlike women we don’t have to fall off the cliff at 33 if we do the things we need to do.

    • Ric

      I agree, and I also would say that women’s peak is 14, because that’s when, according to tradition, the Virgin Mary conceived Jesus.

  2. chuffed knickers

    men age like wine. women age like milk.

  3. MatrixTransform

    Mate, im 55 and aloof as hell. All the prettiest ones from 20 to about 35 crave my gaze. The dynamics are hilarious the more surreptitiously but shameleessly i check out the prettiest without her knowing, the more the rest of the gaggle stick thier tits out and preen their hair.

    But then, i am pretty hot for 55.

    I have a feeling you’ll do fine Mr Piggott

  4. Obviously we’re not up to speed on why your wife has sought a divorce. Options include: she’s decided she will be happier playing for the women’s team, she’s temporarily found somebody, she THINKS she’s found somebody or could find somebody.

    Her chances of finding a joyful, monagamous relationship with a health male leading to marriage – minus 5%

    Chances of acquiring an STD in the next 2 years; 20%

    Her chances of ending up alone plus 70%.

    The odds are not in her favor; except for ending up alone

    • earl

      ‘The odds are not in her favor; except for ending up alone’

      Perhaps that’s what she wanted all along.

      Anymore I think these actions reveal who they are.

    • Nick Mgtow

      Well, divorce or been an irresponsible mom who goes out, parties, neglects her kids… is put under the spotlight in recent culture, movies and book included (Eat, Pray, Love).

      Women crave a divorce, new tingles again… she’ll come back in a few years. From what I read from other guys, the women usually come back between 2 and 7 years after…

  5. JohnR

    47 years old, eh? I was 46 when I met my 30yo wife-to-be. That was 14 years ago, and works well. Time is on our side.

  6. Dave

    Nicest women I’ve ever met with pleasant personalities were those who completed high school and left it at that…. the jobs they held were boring/menial and tended not to occupy their minds when they weren’t working – so they tended to concern themselves with relationships and having fun.

    • Mr Black

      That’s generally my experience too Dave, one they start climbing the education/career ladder they get a wildly inflated sense of their own value and competency.

        I’m proud of my college and post-graduate education, but my intelligence seems to work against me in the dating world because some guys just can’t handle it.


        Women who went to college always believe they’re the smartest of the bunch… when in fact it’s the nerds that do their group test for them…

    • earl

      I don’t know if it is the over inflated ego that does it or the actual degree/work itself…but if a woman has a pleasant humble feminine personality while doing her work that’s a good combo.

      I’ve met women with Master’s degrees that have pleasant personalities…who they are is a better indicator than sheepskin’s on the wall.

  7. The Sage

    If you read between the lines, all femistatist ranting simply says “Come the revolution, _I_ will be the most desirable of women.”

  8. WhiteAustralianButIRepeatMyself

    The thing to remember though, is that the peak for chicks may be 18 but what a peak it is. So even on the downward slope they’re still doing better than blokes.

    Then there’s the simple fact that a chick can get a root anytime she wants. It might not be with Tony Stark but hell, if you’re horny your horny.

  9. Didn’t you already report on this study before? This study isn’t new and – posted the link to it to you at the time. Iirc you posted it in a Friday link post at the time.
    Although I do understand it is a nice vindicative piece to write on now.

  10. Simon Thompson

    Time to redraw the Graph, Adam… own that asymptote to the “Wall”

  11. TechieDude

    Dammit, Simon beat me to it. I’d expect the women’s graph to show a dip in the curve at 35 or so. And the men’s peak more at 40 than 50, but level off like it does.

    Keep in mind, these are data from four blue cities. Note the woman’s line from NYC starts to rise after 55 or so. What’s up with that?

    And, in the “duh” column, this country is 74% something white. Why you’d find a data site matching those demographics shouldn’t be a surprise. Although, At least two are primarily on team brown.

    This ties in pretty well with the other article that’s been making the rounds where the brown women complain they don’t get messaged much.

    Hello Adam and fellow readers.
    First time commenting; just stumbled across the blog recently.
    Adam–sorry for the unexpected transition. By way of background, I am 56, white, professional, conventionally successful. Pretty good shape.

    Adam, you will be astonished at your choices in women. Women twenty years younger and often more routinely make a play my way, and very attractive ones, at least by my standards. If a guy halfway has his act together, women are hunting for him. Every divorced guy I know has multiple good options; every divorced woman I know laments hers. My close friend aged 60 just connected with a very attractive, very pleasant 38-year old.

    I was having drinks with a woman when she blurted out “the world [in context, the sexual marketplace] is run by twenty-five year old girls and fifty year old men.”
    So they know the truth. The just don’t like it.

      “I was having drinks with a woman when she blurted out “the world [in context, the sexual marketplace] is run by twenty-five year old girls and fifty year old men.”
      So they know the truth. The just don’t like it.”

      This, 100%. And that is why I linked this article in the first place. Most women come out of long term relationships as they went in them, and men likewise. So if you were both in your 20s and 30s you proceed from that point of reference.

      Then the bitter, soul-crushing, mind exploding, hiroshima level nuke of the hamster hits but it is too late by then after you’ve signed the divorce decree. A life of ‘second best’ while you rationalize and spin baby spin that you are ‘happier’ with the new beta chump you landed and the alpha man you left was never that good anyways.

      By contrast, the 47 year old guy just scooped a 30 year old and is re-invigorated by her youthful firm flesh, sex drive, and attractiveness.

      That woman spit some serious and rare RealTalk which is a great thing if only she’d have shouted it from the rooftops.


  13. White male privilege

    Adam, are there any plans on getting Aurini to record your second book? Currently listening to the first one and loving it. Will be getting the physical copy as well.

    • Adam

      Glad you like it. Unfortunately not as the first audio book while it has done pretty well it still hasn’t made back its costs. Maybe in the future.

  14. So sounds like my 50 year old self should be hooking up with 19 year old women? I’ll be honest, other than sex that sounds like a nightmare.
