There are many cougars who keep themselves very fit, but even the idea that it’s wrinkles/weight alone that will determine someone’s interest in dating is insulting.
Not all younger men like models and just as there are many types of younger girls for men to be interested in, there are just as many types of cougars as well.
Older women have limited patience for the shenanigans of youth, so stick to these five no-fail rules and you will be dating older women in no time.
They are looking for an equal and as they have been unable to find it in men their own age, they look for younger men—or in some cases, just seem to attract younger men.
Most cougars are incredibly driven women and as such, need someone with a lot of energy to keep up with them.
This one is downright silly because it isn’t something this is exclusive to age gap relationships.
In fact there are many relationships between people of the same age where one partner could be restricted by the other partner while they “figure it out.” Dating an older man does not guarantee that they will be successful and established.
Some cougars might love Ke$ha or Rihanna or any of the other music that is popular right now.
To say that interests are specifically limited by age is more than a little naïve.
Which, I’m sure you’ll agree ladies, is pretty insulting, right?
There is a basic misunderstanding when it comes to cougars and cubs where their relationship is seen as an untraditional relationship much in the way that homosexual relationships are still not accepted in some places or the way that interracial relationships were once talked about. Cougars are independent, bright, and beautiful women.
We're speaking in broad generalizations here, of course—age doesn’t say much about who you are as a person, and not all older women are the same. But generally speaking, one of the greatest traits women gain as they age is self-assurance.
They tend to have higher self-esteem and worry less about their bodies.
This also implies that the cougar is passive within the relationship—which is a toxic view in any relationship, but is certainly not true for cougars.
