cougar

What do you consider a cougar? You know, a woman MUCH older than a man/boy in a relationship.

Do you think it is ok?

Would you date a younger man? If so, how young?

The older I get, the more I'm thinking yes. Why? Because the older I get the more...I want to be...well. Active ;) wink wink   Older men can't keep up or keep it up! LOL So a younger man would be nice EXCEPT for the immature part.

In my thinking.

Weigh in ladies on your thoughts, feelings, opinions.

My son is 27 and his girlfriend is 46. I was very upset when they started dating. But they have been together for six years and they are very happy. I really like her too so I am ok with it now. She is only 3 years younger than me.

 I wouldn't mind having a young hottie, however, it probably wouldn't do me any favors emotionally!  I would be too insecure and I know it!!  LOL 

I don't think I could date anyone under 30.  I am 40 (soon to be 41)

I'm insecure and don't have to worry. I'm married but can't see IF I was single that any young hottie would want me. I'd be a lonely old cat lady.

30 and 40 is not bad.

Do you consider that a cougar?

WHOA that would totally not be ok with me. Even if I liked her  I don't think I could get used to my DIL (maybe one day) being my age.

I have a friend who is married to a much older man. She is only 6 years older than his son. Her best friend is her DIL. They get along great , which is strange that her kids are growing up with her grandkids. Odd to me.

I'm glad I don't have to worry about it. Glad you get along.

 Nah, you're right.  A 10 year difference wouldn't be cougar quality.  More like 15-20 years.  I couldn't see myself dating someone that doesn't even know who Wham! or Culture Club is, LOL.  I AM the lonely old cat lady!!!!
