A cougar is a woman 40-years old or older that seeks out younger men. There are a lot of women out there that don’t technically qualify to be a cougar, but they are with men much younger than them. If two people are of age and they are in love, I don’t see a problem with being with someone older, or younger than you. I myself have always been very mature, but I can’t deny that life experience is the best way to gain wisdom, so while a younger man may be mature, we might not exactly be on the same level. I want my mate to want the same things I want and be prepared to start the process. I don’t want to have to teach a man to be what I need him to be, or wait patiently while he gets himself together. I had all of my twenties to find out what I don’t want in a relationship and at the age of 32, you either have it or you don’t. If you don’t I can’t deal. But there are a lot of women out there that are with much younger men.
Mariah Carey is 11 years older than her husband Nick Cannon, Jennifer Lopez is 18 years older than her boyfriend, and then there is Madonna, who is 29 years younger than her boyfriend. Maybe being with someone much younger than you isn’t such a bad idea.
