Benefits And Disadvantages of Dating Cougar Women

Cougar women are older single women that have been likened to a breed of large, terrestrial feline because they are perceived to be on the prowl and “hunt” younger men. The likes of Kim Cattrall, Halle Berry, and Demi Moore have been desired by many young men. Older women dating younger men is a relatively new trend that has only flourished during the last two decades.

There is no shame in getting attracted to cougar women. A 2009 survey conducted by the New York Times showed that seven out of 25 women (almost 30 percent) who were getting married were exchanging vows with younger men. According to the British Broadcasting Corporation, 26 percent of British brides were older than their grooms. In countries like South Korea and Turkey, more and more women are marrying younger men.

No relationship is perfect, regardless if you are dating women younger than you, your age, or older than you. If you have been in relationships with younger women and women your age and did not have a lot of good experiences, you will find that dating cougar women has its ups and downs as well. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of being in a relationship with cougar women:

Positives

Cougar women are often newly divorced so if you are not ready to get into a committed relationship, dating an older woman who just wants to have fun can be ideal for you. Your carefree attitude and stamina will usually be enough to satisfy her need to be wild.

If you have not had a lot of sexual experiences and need instruction so to speak, then an older woman may be just what you need. Cougar women are no longer inhibited, they know what they want, and they most likely know what you want as well and know how to give it to you. Older women have dealt with their insecurities and fears and probably have many life experiences, enough to know the difference between what matters and what does not. She probably knows what you hated about dating younger women and women your age and she is not likely to give you the same problems.

Negatives

An older woman is likely to be carrying a significant amount of baggage, which may include a pending divorce, business pressures, children, debts, ex-boyfriends and husbands, and financial obligations. You must be ready to and willing to accept all of these if you want to get romantically involved with an older woman. You have to realize that an older woman has more things to worry about that the last college cheerleader you dated.

While it has become more acceptable, a younger man-older woman relationship is still frowned upon by a lot of people. Be prepared to deal with negative reactions from your boss, co-workers, friends, parents, and siblings. But since you will become some sort of a hero among your guy friends, this will sort of make up for all the flak that you are getting.
