Here Are The Ages You Peak At Everything Throughout Life

Women are most attractive to men at about 23. And men's attractiveness to women seems to get better with age.

The cofounder of the online-dating site OKCupid wrote a book called "Dataclysm" that used data from his dating site to answer questions about love, dating, and relationships.

According to the book's analysis of the data, men find women in their early 20s most attractive. Even as the men got older, their preference for 20-something women seemed to stay the same. Women in their 20s on the site, on the other hand, tended to like slightly older men (a year or two older than they were) and women in their 30s tended to like men a few years younger than them.

A disclaimer: OKCupid's data pool, which is based on its users, isn't a representative sample of the population.
