Discover the Good Truths About Dating A Cougar


Cougars have been given a bad reputation for many years, no thanks to Mrs. Robinson from the movie The Graduate. They are perceived as highly lascivious hunters ready to pounce on younger (but-not-so-innocent) men.

The word cougar is actually ill-fitted for this group of women. It is synonymous with hunger-stricken, savage creatures. But, you know what? The word also symbolizes power, strength, and fearlessness; so I guess, in a way, it’s A-ok!

A lot has been said about the disadvantage of a cougar-cub relationship. People have drawn conclusion from the failed relationships of movie stars (Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Liz Taylor and Larry Fortensky, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robins). Also, there is that factor that the said relationship does not coincide with old known relationship strategy. Society is more acceptable of older men dating fetuses. That good news is that romance and its entire connotation are constantly changing. It is evolving and people are opening their minds to the good side of this type of relationship. After all, there are valid justifications why dating a cougar rocks!

Men want to be babied

No matter what age they’re in, men are simply big babies! They want to be catered to, smothered with attention, and showered with a lot of affection. Could oedipal complex extend well into adult years? Underneath all that hardcore masculinity is a cute little pudgy baby always in need of protection and security.

Old women are more confident

They’re like fine wine. Women really do get better with age. Women become more confident as they age. It’s a product of a combination of factors that one has survived through the years. It’s a kind of a secured type of confidence – not solely because of beauty, intelligence, or whatever. It’s a different level of confidence. They’re more aware of their whole sexuality and have lost that large amount of insecurity that plagues majority of younger women. Younger men are drawn to older women because they exude the kind of confidence that’s impressive, even seductive. Cougars know what they want and are not afraid to say it.

Less drama, more steamy sex

Now really, who doesn’t want this? Younger men like mature women better because they are mentally and emotionally developed. They can handle relationships better (due to a series of previous relationships). Older women know the fine art of dating sprezzatura. They’re smooth operators. She won’t dish out about her date on her Twitter account nor get mad at petty stuff (e.g. BF forgot to tag GF on a Facebook photo). And the sex…oooh, the sex. According to a study, women’s sexual desire surges as they age. Think girls gone wild but still with finesse.

Their brains are bigger than their boobs

I applaud guys who get past the superficial and prefer women who are intellectual. Beauty and body can easily be enhanced and modified, but you can never (ever, ever) fake brilliance. Older women are wiser and are more fascinating. They have more wisdom and can get into a deeper, more meaningful type of conversations if the need arises.

Paws up cougars! Don’t be afraid to purrrr your way into a younger man’s heart!

    I’m 33, and I’m hooking up with a 26 year old who thinks I’m the hottest thing on the planet (not much of an exaggeration either!). Not to sound self-deprecating, but I haven’t really understood why this cute, younger guy keeps coming back to me and showering me with compliments. This article just gave me a lot of insight!

    After divorce, I met a man 9 year younger. He even leave his younger GF to chase me because he thinks somehow I’m hot and he’s so into me. It is so refreshing after a long excruciating struggle with my previous relationship. We talk like best friend, play like children, argue like married couple and protect each other like brother and sister. And the sex is absolutely mind blowing too.
