Men and women's interests 'differ with age'

Posted on: May 20, 2013 15:15:52

Men and womenDifferences between the ways men and women behave throughout their lives have been identified as part of a new in-depth study. 

In what could be good news for singles who are looking for a bit of no-strings fun online, both genders tend to become interested in different things depending on their age - meaning many people in long-term relationships can drift apart from their other halves.

Researchers, who used data from social media website Facebook, found men and women develop new interests as they mature, which means some can feel as if they have become out of sync with their partner. 

For example, ladies usually become interested in working out and keeping fit by the age of 34, but their male counterparts tend to wait until their 45th birthday before they start to consider the benefits of getting in shape, reports the Daily Mail.

Similarly, blokes start to become disinterested in their careers after the age of 30, while women do not do so until they turn 38.

British scientist Stephen Wolfram, who carried out the research, used anonymous data that had been donated by thousands of Facebook users - taking note of the "likes" and "interests" they had posted on their personal profile.

Commenting on the study's findings, he said: "It’s almost shocking how much this tells us about the evolution of people’s typical interests.

"People talk less about video games as they get older and more about politics. Men typically talk more about sports and technology than women - and, somewhat surprisingly to me, they also talk more about movies, television and music."

The varied results highlight the benefits of using online dating to get to know someone new, as this method allows singles to list their interests - meaning they can get to know others with similar hobbies.
