Curious on cougar stories/experiences/wants... I'd love to hook up with some hot 45+ year old who still is hot to trot, especially big up top... and just go. Especially the old Marin County/Orange County/Hamptons/So Beach divorcee on the rebound from the bloated execu-pig she was married to, even with some work done, because she's trying a little bit too hard. Intelligent conversation, cut to the chase... get used. Especially if you are pretty enough, you can do well. You know... cougar! What is a 'cougar relationship'? Put quite simply, it is a relationship between an older woman and a younger man. It seems there's been an increase in this type of relationship over the last few years. But it is also something that has existed for a long time. It is often the older celebrity woman that gets noticed by the media when they have a relationship with a younger man. People like, Mae West, Mary Tyler Moore, Raquel Welsh and Susan Sarandon. But what's the attraction in a cougar relationship? It has often been said that opposites attract, which is why men and women get together. Traditionally tough it has been the older man with a younger woman, usually not more than a few years between them. But why shouldn't a man have a relationship with an older woman or indeed a woman have a relationship with a younger man. In societies nowadays, barriers are being broken down everywhere so why are cougar relationships still seen as unusual? An estimate says that about 1/3rd of women aged 40 or over have dated younger men. So what's the attraction for these women? Is it simply sexual, thinking that a younger man will have more stamina and satisfy them better? Is it a power thing, do these women enjoy having influence or a 'mothering' aspect over their partner? Is it simply female 'trophy hunting', are these younger men used as 'trophy partners'. Maybe such women are trying to prove to themselves that they are still attractive and able to pull young virile men, possibly they have problems accepting their real age. Or is it simply that these women enjoy a loving successful relationship with a man who just happens to be their junior? But what's the attraction for the man? Does he see the woman as a 'mother figure'? Does he see her as an older experienced woman; someone who will 'teach' him. Again, is it a 'power thing'? does the guy see the wealthy, older woman as being powerful and feel that he will gain some power by being associated with her? Or could it simply be that the man is enjoying a loving relationship with a woman who just happens to be older?
