Being a cougar isn't for the faint of heart ... For nearly five years, I've been dating a man 15 years my junior. I have been a consistent member of the "Cougar Club" since my husband passed away.A few weeks ago, we published a study on the cost of dating younger women.This week, our study addresses the question of Cougar and Cub couplings.Depending on their life experiences, some younger men have had to grow up faster and have gained some wisdom and insight.Spending time with him and seeing how he handles stress, finances, friends, work, etc. But, if you are looking for a casual relationship, it may not matter.2.
Ladies, perhaps you've hit your, er, prime, and want someone who can keep up, or maybe you'd just rather someone with less baggage than many of the men your age.Often it's the younger man who approaches the older woman in hopes of a purely sexual, no-strings-attached relationship.Contrary to popular belief, the older woman isn't the predator — in fact, it's the quite opposite. A relationship like that isn't viable — he'll cheat on her with someone his age. Giphy Ashton and Demi's problems were less about the age difference and more about her insecurity and his infidelity.Spontaneity Younger men still want to explore and find out who they are, before settling down.Filled with adventure, they are spontaneous, which is quite pleasing to the older woman.
The "Urban Dictionary" states: "Cougars are gaining in popularity — particularly the true hotties — as young men find not only a sexual high, but many times a chick with her shit together." I like to think of a cougar as a confident, independent, young-spirited woman who happens to prefer the company of younger men.
