Cougar Dating for Sex on the First Date
It wasn't all that long ago that the very idea of a mature woman dating a much younger man for sex on a first date was strictly taboo. Nowadays, cougar dating for sex seems to be very in vogue, even encouraged in some circles.
For some reason or other, the other way around has always been okay. Our society has long accepted men being old coots dating younger women for sex.
Oh sure, we make fun of them and can't believe that a woman half a man's age can possibly care anything about him. Maybe, with dating cougars gaining popularity in the dating scene, we'll have to rethink our preconceived notions of May/December romances.
A recent study by the AARP showed that 34% of all women over the age of 40 were dating much younger men, and that 35% of those older women preferred dating them to men their own age. Ageism stereotypes are deflating as our society opens up to to these once-taboo relationships.
In the celebrity realm, prominent May-December relationships (like that of Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore) are headlining tabloids everywhere, suggesting that age really is just a number. On the other hand, however, news stories of older teachers dating their male teenage students have the public up in arms, damning the whole situation.
One of the differences between old coots dating for sex and cougars wanting sex on the first date may be the lack of commitment. While many older men often marry their young girlfriends, older woman cougars are generally not looking for long-term relationships, although sometimes it does happen despite their original intentions. Mostly, they are looking for some fun, both in and out of the bedroom.
Cougars tend to be divorcees, fit, and financially sound. They are irresistible to young men looking for a mature, confident woman to spend time with and have sex on the first date.
One thing that young men (sometimes called “boy toys”) like about their older women cougars is the fact that these older women can carry a conversation. Many young men find it frustrating when talking to and dating hot women their own age, especially because of their tendency to giggle, and express their insecurities.
There are many pluses to cougar dating in addition to the ones already mentioned. Dating a younger man can be exciting. For an older woman to be desired by a good looking, passionate man who previously in history was considered off limits, is down right sexy, and you can bet that there is no Viagra needed. That young hard body stud doesn't need viagra when he’s getting sex on the first date from a hot and bothered sexy cougar!
For the mature older woman not looking to settle down, cougar dating may be ideal. She can enjoy her cub's company, and move on when the relationship has run its course. This can be perfect for the young man, as well, especially if he wants to start a family some day.
The dating couple can enjoy each other for a while, and no doubt learn things about a dating relationship that will help them in the future.
If there is one caution about cougar dating, it would have to be to guard your heart. When two people get along well, laugh a lot together, have an amazing sex life, and can communicate openly and honestly with each other, there is the possibility of falling in love. If it happens for you both, that's great. However if not, there will be the heartbreak that is typical of any relationship where one person has more invested emotionally than the other.
So, is it worth it to engage in cougar dating? Older women say, "Definitely". Most young men looking for good sex on a first date would also answer with a resounding, "YES!"
