The Cougar

11:52 AM |

Growl.......



Why is it that when women decide that they are going to date younger men, we get nicknamed? Men have dated younger women for years. What's with the double standard? There are so many ageists out there who don't want to date a woman over 25, when they themselves are one foot in the grave.

What? Because you don't want me I'm supposed to be an old spinster sitting in my rocking chair watching you parade around like a jackass with a girl who wasn't even a twinkle in her mom's eye when you out doing keg stands with your frat brothers? What kind of sense does that make? Really?

I get picked on a lot by my friends for being open to dating younger men. Why? They're the ones showing interest in me. It's not like I'm the one cruising college campuses ready to scoop up an unsuspecting child. Why am I going to waste the prime years of my life waiting for someone my own age to appreciate me? Screw that.

I don't care if I am older. Call me what you want. But if you meet my qualifications and you can buy me a drink, then let's get it. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr......

We as women do get a lot of criticism from this and it is very demeaning. Personally I don't date men that are younger than I am because I did that in the past and it didn't work out for me. He was too immature and not on my level. But sometimes women can find happiness in a younger man and that's cool, too. I feel how you are feeling though and Man, you write about some interesting topics. I wish there was a way to make your blog #1!

Lol there is a double standard...I think people act as if all women are good for is being nurturers and whatnot, so seeing us a actual beings who seek love and affection isn't always on their minds. If that love and affection just happens to come from a younger man...who cares?? What one old a** man doesn't appreciate, perhaps a younger one will! Lol.

Women are called Cougars when they date younger men. When men date younger women they are called predictable...laugh.
