First off there is a double standard. Men get older and become “distinguished” whereas women fade and become “haggard.” Aesthetics is the deciding factor. There is no middle ground. From this men are considered old at 60. Women peak at 30 with a lucky few making it to 40 depending on how well they stand the test of time.
