Older women dating younger men

One might frown at this but first, i must stress what a pal of mine use to say those days,if we ever come across a man and a younger female associate, of course they are seeing each other so he will always say..Hey! she is young enough to be your daughter".

But in today's world,time has changed though this might not be too common in Africa or rather Nigeria per say but i guess there are some hidden issues in so many places, i don't mean to offend no one but most ladies in Nigeria are too corny.

Are you lacking behind? What is it about Cougar?

In 2007, an online dating site conducted a survey which revealed that most of the females showed interest in men though not just men but folks much younger than them. In today's world, women does date guys much younger than them, take a good example of some powerful celebrities like Demi Moore who has a 15 years head start over her 28years old Romeo.

From my own personal point of view, i believe that the world is becoming more acceptable of the generation gap as it relates to women and their younger counterparts. Kisha a good friend has no problem with her 13years younger Romeo, infact to her men at their 40(s) are boring.(don't mean no offense) but she made it clear that younger men are brighter and socially fit, ready to explore and are more romantic.

I asked a close female associate of mine her honest opinion and she told me that her own husband is six years younger and it has been a wonderful eight years together.Anyway, if love is blind color wise then i believe that it should be age wise as well. These days, there are lots of cosmetics in the market and generally, older women all want to appear younger.

It is high time,we remain on the motion that a woman's role is all about raising kids and taking care of the kitchen so if men are caught in between this issue then it is no big for women as well.A 60years old woman dating a 45years old man is not seen as a bad issue and most times it is simply justified but see these lovely pair a 38years old lady and a 22years old Romeo. up! he is dating his mother.Of course, that's what is always in people's mind.

But i have seen a relationship/marriage where the woman is years older than the hubby and things keep flowing smoothly.

      Truly, I don't understand what the fuss is all about since men have been loving younger women for a long time. What's acceptable for them should be for women as well.

      Love has no boundaries. Thanks for sharing your view and getting the discussion going.

      HAPPINESS! this is just the basic thing in every relationship and if i have to be honest,i see nothing bad in the woman being older but the fact is the motives and events.

      Very interesting hub....yes, I must say, celebrities have certainly helped to fortify this 'cougar' idea in our minds too, so that older, confident and independent women are no longer seen as a threat to men. My theory is, as long as people love each and are happy, whatever works for anyone! Really enjoyed this one too...
