The Cougar – MEOW!

What is a Cougar exactly? The Urban Dictionary defines a Cougar as the following:

“An older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man. The cougar can be anyone from an overly surgically altered wind tunnel victim, to an absolute sad and bloated old horn-meister, to a real hottie or milf. 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.”

A 35+ year old female who is on the “hunt” for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities)waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. ‘Man’ is cougar’s number one prey”

I find this term a little ridiculous but funny although some of my girlfriends get down right offended by it. It is ridiculous because women are getting labeled for dating younger men when men have been dating young girls for centuries and never have been labeled with a name? I think it actually looks more ridiculous seeing an older man with a significantly younger girl. Usually the first thought is “he must be loaded”, then it’s “she must have “daddy issues”” and lastly “he is obviously going through a midlife crises”.

An older woman with a younger man is usually 95% about the sex. Hell, if a Cougar is a woman in her late 30’s – early 40’s then she is most likely at her sexual peek. And since most dudes at that age have “let them self go”, the Cougar needs to seek out or “hunt” the younger fitter models that keep up with them. Chances are also good that at this age they have worked out all of their issues, have no baggage and do not want a man who is weighed down by an obsessive ex-wife, insecurities and financial issues.

So ladies, if you fall into the societal ‘Cougar’ label, I say embrace it! It is just a term coined by some bitter old man, who could not get a hot woman his age because of his beer belly, comb over and anger issues. And to the younger girls out there that also like to label …don’t be upset because ‘Cougars’ are stealing all your potential dates…when we’re done you can have them back.
