Why Do Men Get Better With Age?

I hate to say it, I really do…but men get better looking with age. It’s the hardest truth I’ve ever had to accept. 

It’s not like they deserve it, they literally clean their ass with the same bar of soap their mom gave them four Christmases ago. 

The way women treat their body versus men is simply incomparable. Us ladies, have a strict skin care routine that took us years of trial and error to master. Men? Splash of water to the face every once and awhile. When it comes to hair care, women have a secret recipe of products that we use in hopes to maintain shiny lushes locks. The fellas just hit it with a squirt of 2 in 1 shampoo and call it a day. 

When it comes to self care, the only routine men and women have in common is the act of brushing our teeth. That’s about it. 

All of our hard work as women to maintain our beauty fails us in the long run. Unless you are one of the fortunate, who can afford endless fillers and tucks, you’re fucked. There’s really nothing more we can do as we age except master makeup and dye our grays. 

On the contrary, men do little to preserve their youth and their bodies reward them. Yes, there’s the unfortunate chance that men can lose their hair with time…but even then some of them look better bald.

Like these guys:

While women tend to their grey roots every 3-4 weeks, many men embrace their aged hair color and are deemed a “silver fox.”

For example:

Michael Scott has never looked so good. I wouldn’t have put up with any of his objectifying remarks back in the day…but now, maybe I will rub your feet with that Country Crock.

I’m all for women empowerment, and I’m not one to objectify women by their looks. I just feel like when it comes down to it, we get the short end of the stick in the aging department. If anything, men are glorified for the way they so gracelessly age. It’s just not fair. 

With that being said, here is a list of men who seemed to get better looking as their age increased:

Not all women age poorly, there are numerous amounts of women I know that grow older and more beautiful. Some don’t age at all. Although they may age better than us at times, we can’t let it get to us. Like the old playground riddle goes: Boys go to Jupiter to get more stupider; Girls go to college to get more knowledge. Remember that. 

To end on a lighter note, here are a few honorable women who didn’t let age defy them:

  1. Hmm…the style is what also makes these men look more attractive on the pictures you posted, not the age. And your sample size is not representable. Maybe you should add a pic of a “regular Joe” at 20 and 40 to your collection that 99% of men actually look like instead of George Clooney? Believe me, most people don’t get more attractive with age and not many men or women can pull it off.

  2. And I am certain Terry Crews worked very very hard to maintain this body the same as all the other gentlemen on your list. The male celebrities who don’t work hard look pretty awful in their early 30s while some women can still maintain good look without doing much. Your beliefs are not accurate and probably have been skewed by some propagandistic patriarchal ideology that you internalized without questioning. Aging affects everyone and everyone has to put work into their looks as they age.
