Being a cougar isn’t for the faint of heart … or body.
The “Urban Dictionary” states: “Cougars are gaining in popularity — particularly the true hotties — as young men find not only a sexual high, but many times a chick with her shit together.” I like to think of a cougar as a confident, independent, young-spirited woman who happens to prefer the company of younger men.
Here are 10 common myths about cougars in the dating world, and the REAL facts that totally debunk them:
1. A cougar is a hunter who preys on an innocent younger man.
Who hunts whom? Some guys are naturally drawn to older women like any other physical “type,” such as preferring blondes to brunettes.
A cougar exudes self-confidence, which makes her a highly desirable conquest to a younger man. Often it’s the younger man who approaches the older woman in hopes of a purely sexual, no-strings-attached relationship. Contrary to popular belief, the older woman isn’t the predator — in fact, it’s the quite opposite.
