what are your thoughts abuot the term 'Cougar' to describe a ?over 40? woman who is involved with a younger man?
there is no reason to label everyone, older women have been attracted to younger men since long before Demi Moore.
sometimes when you see these women portrayed, it seems almost like a desperate attempt to grab onto youth. no one should need validation from someone else to be who they are. my thoughts...
I guess I'm a cougar as my husband is younger than me
the terms seems derogatory to me, like the woman is a predator, someone who is trying to get their claws in you...
I think it means experience, we are more knowledgeable in more ways than one. We are mature and nurturing.
You are a 'COUGAR' only if you are 40 and over and dealing with a man not to exceed 10-15 years your junior. You become a 'PREDATOR' dealing with any thing 16 years your junior.
hmmm....wild, aggressive, Hot and rich! "Sugar-momma!" lol
so men think that a cougar is a good thing?
I was just answering the question as I saw it as posted. I would say alot of men do see this as a good thing, but more mature men may not. It depends on the person. personally....I would prefer someone close to my own age. More in common that way.
Well, I wouldn't be too sure about the rich part unless you meant in knowledge. LOL
To be more serious...I think of a woman who is much older than the male companion. There are men and women who prefer companionship that is either a lot older or younger than themselves for their own reasons.
It is fitting of whom it is applied. I have loved thm in my former days of, er, um, wolf days.
Perhaps it was originally derogatory remark, but I think it's now far more acceptable on the whole. It's a kind of red flag filled with seduction and suspense. Therefore, pretty alluring, don't you think?
I think cougars are the new "sirens" of classical literature.
Aren't cougars supposed to be the term for hot older women who are attracted to younger men and whom men find attractive. Like Demi Moore?
hi there poppa blues, do you want to stay in a cage then???you want them older than you are too...lol
and yes flightkeeper, you nailed it, am a cougar way back then--my ex hubby is younger thus far, but I like what daniel said about it--pretty alluring,,,
The term "cougar" was originally applied to attractive and self-assured older women to distinguish them from "kittens."
Of course, in the mouths of chauvinists, either term is dehumanizing.
I guess the term for a 40+ male on the prowl is just creepy haha
I'm in a relationship with an older man and I am nearing 40. He calls me a cougar, and even though I am no longer dating younger men, I find it amusing! Cougars should be recognized for what they are: "older" women knowing what they want and going for it; especially younger men.
Thats fine with me as log as they stay away from my son.
Funny how women get a cool name when they want to sleep with younger guys but guys get the glorious term of "pedophile."

Why on earth do you think 60 year old wrinkly fat bald men get 21 year old girls?Even if it were “natural,” there’s nothing innocent or harmless or healthy about older men pursuing ceaselessly younger women. The cost is high to everyone involved. While a few young women may be attracted to much...

What do you think about a younger woman dating an older man? (or vice versa)I've been dating a man that's 30 and I'm 23. We get a lot of jokes about it but there are also those who are against it simply because of our age difference. Do you think this is justified or does age really matter?
