If we start from the fact that in the structure and function of the human body, the relations and functions that are in the golden ratio can be recognized, we in this article, extended this idea to the duration of human life. Based on the golden ratio, we divided human life into certain phases, bounded by characteristic numbers, and observed differences in the flow of physical and biological time in individual phases. We have shown that in certain phases, physical time, compared to biological time, flows at different rate. We have also shown that there is a difference in the points/numbers that determine the time phases of a man's and a woman's life: for example, a man enters the youth phase at the age of 21, and a woman at the age of 18; the males are in the mature stage at 34, the females at 29; a man enters the old age phase at 55 and a woman at 47. Because of these differences we conclude that the biological time of man and woman flows at different rates, so it is possible to speak of men’s and women’s biological time.
