Dating a cougar
If you're wearing cougar clothes and prowling the cougar den, then own up to why you're there and what you want! The only thing that's changed is the response required from you. Depending on how far you decide to take this thing, you may have sex with your youthful partner — if you're lucky, that is.Rather than saying, "You're so smart" or "That's so interesting," you only need to memorize one word: Awesome! Young guy: "I'm in my third year of law school." You: "Awesome! But sex is what it is and what he's going to call it, if not something blunter, and so should you.But just what is it about women in the 40 plus group that is such a turn on?You’ll thrive in the game of dating younger men if you can pin that down, and if you can avoid the bad behavior of your fellow 40-plus felines.Part of what attracts a young guy to an older woman is all her knowledge and experience about careers, travel, relationships and life in general.
Too many cougars hit the gym obsessively, whittling their bodies down to nothing but bone. He won’t know as much about money management or interior design or even table manners as you do.Like a crop top or too much makeup, catty behavior instantly ages you.So long as you see your age as an advantage, so will your cub.By the way: Don't be surprised to find your young man similarly shaved (except for maybe his face). Resist the impulse to listen too sympathetically to his problems, to warn him that he really shouldn't be smoking or drinking so much, to tell him how he might rev up his career or do better in school (yikes), much less to give him too-explicit directions in the romance arena.And by all means, don't gasp if you notice that he's got a heart manscaped into his chest hair. Remember those nasty girls at your junior high dances, who wore too much makeup and made out in public with all the boys? Forget about playing hard to get or feeling like you have to follow "The Rules" in order to bag a man. And, whatever you do, never ever tell him to clean up his room. Younger men may have less flab, more stamina and a better appreciation for strong women than their older counterparts, but they're exactly like guys your age in one way: They love attention.
