Why women live longer

Women interact more with people, on average, than men do and form connections linked to longer life, says psychologist Martin. “Women tend to have stronger social networks and more frequency of interactions with others. These social networks—and doing for others—also may add to a woman’s longevity.” On average, women also tend to be more verbal and talk more with friends. This addresses problems and strengthens relationships. Men, on the other hand, are often discouraged from sharing the deeper stuff women tend to do fairly easily. There’s a trend in the opposite direction, says Martin. “But these changes take time and many men are not comfortable with it. Men have more pressure to hold in their feelings.”
