The Cougars are Prowling...

Vivica Fox is engaged to a man that is almost 20 years younger than her, and she is just one example of the many women who are embracing this new trend of Cougars. What is it about younger men that are attracting so many older women?

We are all use to the older man becoming a hawk as he is surrounded by younger girls waiting to be swept off of their feet, but now women are doing the same. What is it for the older woman? Does she like being in control? Does he make her feel younger? Is there a limit on older men or men their age? Whatever the reason may be, this trend seems to be becoming a trend amongst all types of women. It isn't just the woman over 40 looking to get her groove back, it is also the woman who is in her late 20s looking to hook up with a boy in his early 20s. While the latter isn't as big of a gap, there is still a difference between a woman in her late 20s and a man in his early 20s.....maturity level! Either way women are going for the younger man.

What is even more interesting is that younger men are lining up for the opportunity to be with an older woman. From simply wanting to have sex with an older woman to wanting an older woman who will become their Sugar Mama, the line truly is long!

What I really want to know is how these relationships are working out? Men tend to want their women young and beautiful. Are these Cougar relationships only short-term, allowing for both parties to have a little fun, or can these relationships truly be long-term?

I want to hear from you.

Would you date a guy younger than you, and how much younger?

Do you think that these type of relationships are more short-term fun or long-lasting?

I have dated guys younger than me. The only time I really noticed a difference was when the guy was 2 yrs younger. Not just maturity but matters of experience in different areas were interesting. For example, he was still in school during the Obama campaign while I was out and actually campaigning. It definitely takes some getting used to. And it definitely takes maturity on both ends for it to function properly.

Yeah I am currently dating the first guy younger than me, but it is only by a year. I don't notice much of a difference at all, but I am sure that the two year gap and greater is a much different experience.

Yeah being able to relate is a major problem people might face, maturity levels, and being in different stages in their lives.

So when women are 30 dating men that are 20, I can only imagine that it is just for fun...cause that is a huge difference in where they are in their lives.

Right now as a 24 year old going on 25 quickly, I wouldn't date a younger man because I'm already young and couldn't see myself going any younger. In a year or two we may have to revisit this topic :)
On a side note, I didn't want to date men who were past 30 years old but now seeing the maturity level of 27-29 year old men, I have more so accepted dating men in their 30s.

@Kristina: I get what you mean. At 24 dating someone younger would probably mean like 19/20 and their maturity level might be a challenge when dating them. Yeah I think most Cougars truly come out once they hit 30 and above.

I was like you in terms of dating men over 30. I didn't know if I could do that. I embrace the opportunity to do so now.

Although I don't have anything against it, I do think the age difference will change the dynamics due to the fact that women are more mature than men (normally), and the role of leadership might be affected. Personally, I couldn't date anyone younger than me.

The Socialite said...

@Beautifully: Could you date someone that is a little closer in age, like a year younger than you? I don't think the maturity level will differ as much. I do think that a larger difference like 5 to 10 years will highly effect the dynamics of the relationship.

I can't do it because I have a mental block. Its a personal issue, and to me, he will still be too immature, lol.

The Socialite said...

@Beautifully: Ha! I use to think I could never date anyone younger than me...not even a year. I have this thing with wanting the man to be in control. I am such an Alpha woman and will run over a lot of guys. I need a man who won't let me do that. I always thought someone even a year younger than me would be easy to run over, but I recently met a guy 1 year younger than me and he is perfect! lol

I don't know...worth a try girl!!!

She still hots, So I don't think that it is a problem that she needs someone younger sexually speaking.
