It's common knowledge most of us have a "type", but it turns out men have "an age".

And that age is 20.

According to a new study by OKCupid, men surveyed said they found that woman aged 20 to be the most attractive and interestingly women in their early 20s mainly sought out older men.

However, at the age of 29, women started seeking partners who were a similar age and at age 40, they start looking for younger men.

Men from the age of 20 to 50 prefer women nearly exclusively who are 20 years old, with 24 as the highest age.

OKCupid founder Christian Rudder commented on the findings, saying: "Another way to put this focus on youth is that males’ expectations never grow up. A 50-year-old man’s idea of what’s hot is roughly the same as a college kid’s.”
