 Men Not Put Off by Wrinkles on Women’s Face

A science journalist has revealed that men are more likely to get attracted to older-looking faces rather than young ones.

In her fascinating new book, "Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes?" American science journalist Jena Pincott collates scores of academic studies, to say that wrinkles do not make a woman appear less attractive to the opposite sex.

In scientific tests, men were asked who they saw as a potential partner for a short-term relationship. As it turned out, they gave low attractiveness ratings to older-looking faces.

That, according to the researchers, is because men are biased towards youthful-looking women with childbearing years ahead, which prompts them to marry younger women.

But, ironically, if a man's mother was over 30 when he was born, he tended to be more tolerant of ageing in women's faces in the context of a long-term relationship.

It was only the mother's age at his birth, not the father's, which influenced a man's acceptance of older looking women's faces.

According to the researchers, such a tendency owes itself to sexual inprinting, the tendency for a person to seek a mate who resembles his or her opposite-sex parent.
