Men Become ‘Invisible’ And Lose Sex Appeal At 39
dailycaller ^

Posted on 07/11/2014 10:35:37 AM PDT by chessplayer

At 39, men lose their sex appeal and become “invisible” to women, a new study conducted by Crown Clinic Manchester revealed.

With 1,000 people polled, 52 percent of participants and 62 percent of women said that men lose their sex appeal when they’re about to turn 40, according to the Daily Mail. The biggest sign of being “invisible” was not being eyed up or approached by women during a night on the town, according to 53 percent of participants.

At 40, men are looked at more as father figures than sex symbols, according to Express.

Not only that, but once a male hits the Big 40, the odds of being hired for a job drop like a rock. Not many will want to hire an old man. When a man hits 40, they have entered old age.

The fatter the wallet, the less “invisible” a male over 40 becomes.

Age (and looks) have nothing to do with it.

Ask this guy.

Its all about your bank balance.

That still a better shot than women get. Women lose their sex appeal at around 25 or so for a lot of men.

And most women become invisible to desirable men after age 29.

Assuming he's not Jabba the Hut, a fat wallet can drop decades from a man's perceived age.

My most important hires took place after 40. My most significant relationships started after 40. My highest incomes were realized after 40.

The biggest sign of being “invisible” was not being eyed up or approached by women during a night on the town, according to 53 percent of participants.

My perception is that they are referencing night clubs and the like. That's probably the crowd they are doing surveys amongst. If that's true, the guy over forty should consider himself lucky not to appeal to the women who hang out there.

Lies. IMO men are much handsomer. They’ve filled out with more muscle, have a lot more life experience, a greater sense of who they are and just more appealing in every way.

Men are most sexy when they have their act together and no longer behave like teenagers...which is usually after the age of 40.

And as a counter, women lose their sex appeal when they hit 25, judging by the sheer number of women I see who just seem to let themselves go once they hit that age. Add feminazi indoctrination on top of that, and no man in his right mind over 30 would even want to go anywhere near them. 40 years of recruiting man-bashing lesbians (aka: NOW, WOW, and other male neutering metrosexual factories), to warp young womens’ minds has its consequences. The war on women is a false flag, it was meant to wage war
on men.

Before I turned 40 people told me I look like Gary Sinise. Having just turned 45, I've been told I look a little like Sean Connery.

Either way, I'll take it :-)

I think I was probably at my “hunkiest” around age 36. I met the woman who would become my wife at 37, and we got married when I was 38. Now, at age 61, I’m divorced and wanting to start over. So this article is not very encouraging.

Just...eew! What man would want a woman that eyeballed everything in town, anyway?

Not to me, they don't. I find many women in their 40s and 50s attractive. Which is good, because I'm 61. ;-)

“40 and cruising nightclubs = pathetic.”

Well, I was sorta “cruising.” As the lead guitarist/pedal steel player in a good Country band here in Northern Ohio, I did okay with women from their late Twenties to late Thirties, until I retired at 54. Running my own company during the day, and gigging 5 to 7 nights a week, plus the women, finally wore me out! But it was fun while it lasted! 8^)

A fat wallet is the best tool to get young women to spread their legs. How many times have we seen or heard about rich guys in their 70’s or 80’s having a “companion” woman in her 20’s or 30’s?

Oh, and what does that say about the women in question?

Yeah, a big fat bank balance will trump age and looks. It’s been that way since forever. But the majority of men don’t have big, fat bank accounts.
