‘This cougar life’

Have you ever been called a cougar? How do you feel about it? I shared my thoughts on this over on the This is Africa site

“…Recently, as I was walking toward one of my friends at an arts festival, another guy said in reference to me, “She looks like a cougar. Is she one?” I wonder what gave him that impression. Was it my slightly too short denim skirt? Or was it a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’?

The problem with dating younger is that men mature much later than women and you might have to struggle with some infantile behaviors. Another problem is that most men want a seed and an older woman might not be in the position to be able to fulfill that need. There are many great looking women that don’t look their age and might be able to get away with a younger lover. However, investing your time on a low return should be something that you are willing to take a lost at. Otherwise, find yourself an older man with lots of stamina.

  • Are you guys exclusive? How would you feel if he abadoned you for someone his age-not because you didn’t gratify his needs, but because, well age suddenly became an issue?
