You know it, just when you think you’ve figured out women they change the rules. That’s the results of a recent study of women done in the UK. The study says that when women are younger, before the age of twenty-five, they are much more attracted to looks and possessions, and,
They tend to be superficial and are only looking for someone they can show off… to their friends. But as they age the age of a man becomes less important. Psychiatrist Anjali Chhabria says:
What we want from a relationship when we are 16 may depend on peer pressure, hormones, ego-boost, etc. But at 25, relationships may depend more on a person’s social and emotional needs. As you grow older, a relationship may depend on how much emotional, mental and financial support it gives you. This change, in my observation, is present regardless of a person’s gender.
Now, one thing about this study is it looked at women in the UK, not at women in Eastern Europe, Latin America, or Asia, and, I believe that women from those countries are more likely to pass through these stages more quickly than women from the UK. The article also discusses what you can do to keep the relationship strong over time.
