Are You Dating a Cougar?
It's no longer a dating stigma, women are searching for younger men and men are searching for older women. In a poll on a popular personals site, 65% of single men in their 20s were seeking women who were 5 years or older. So, what is a cougar, why do cougars want younger men and why are younger men attracted to cougars?
Cougar is a term adopted from the movie, Cougars Club. Cougars are singles women who are in their late 30s or 40s and are interested in dating only younger men. By younger, we mean eight years or more. These are intelligent professional women who are financially independent. They know what they want and get it. Cougars are sexual, confident and have high self esteem. They can hold their own and hold their heads up high. They are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in and are direct when they speak.
The reason why these women seek out younger singles is because they feel that they can be more open in a dating relationship with a younger man than with someone their own age. Younger men are already impressed with a cougar's success and independence. They will appreciate her for who she is and what she can bring into the relationship because she has been through many of the experiences that they've not been through yet.
A younger man seeks a cougar for many of the same reasons why a cougar seeks out a younger man. He wants someone who is already established and stable. Younger women tend to be less sure of themselves and bring drama into a relationship. Cougars can support and give better advice than women who is the same age. The cougar is wise and can be there for her man in ways that other women cannot.
