Young men dating cougars
Being a cougar isn't for the faint of heart ... For nearly five years, I've been dating a man 15 years my junior.
I have been a consistent member of the "Cougar Club" since my husband passed away.
The survey found men aged 20 to 29 prefer older women to younger ones, and women preferred a younger man as they age, according to Your Tango.
This contradicts the stereotype that all men are focused on finding a youthful partner, as these singles indicate a preference for a partner three to six years older than themselves.
However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.
A 2008 study published in the journal found women who are 10 or more years older than their partner report more satisfaction and relationship commitment compared to women who are the same age or younger than their partner.
The success of these age-gap romantic relationships may be attributed to the vitality the younger man brings into their lives and the maturity and confidence men find in their older counterparts.
Being open-minded about different tastes and interests is good for any relationship. Cougars have been known to stay up late at night chatting with their younger men about the meaning of life.4.
The younger man will ultimately want children and will dump the older woman who already has a brood.
