I've been reading blogs posted in AskMen.com about cougar women. The question being put to these guys was are cougars dateable? I was appalled at the answers.
Per usual the underlying belief is that we are decrepit old women who aren't able to attract any male, so resort to hunting younger men for sex and acceptance. This tired old rhetoric is the reason I’m so glad to be a Real Cougar Woman and part of this movement, trend, choice whatever you want to call it.
This website, OUR website, is all about change. It empowers us to act on all the changes going on in our lives including the popular beliefs of who we REALLY are. In my opinion, that’s one of the biggest challenges for all of us Real Cougar women…changing the misconceived notion of who we are and who we are not.
First the “we are nots”:
-We are NOT sex starved felines
-We are NOT decrepit
-We are NOT desperate
-We are NOT out preying on younger men
Now the “we ares”:
-We ARE sexy, but we decide who, what, where, when And if
-We ARE powerful, confident, fit and beautiful
-We ARE in love with our lives with or without men
-We ARE being pursued by younger men
-We ARE everything that many younger men are looking for
So ladies, I’m challenging each of you to take a stand today to change our image. The first step is to acknowledge how fabulous you are – if you don't already. The next step is to be. Be confidence, grace and intelligence. Be proud of the woman you have become. Then finally share. Share what you know with other women so they too can embrace their Real Cougar.
Let’s do what we do best, ladies….ROAR!
