I think it's safe to say we are all looking for change in 2009. Isn't that why Obama was elected? The world is changing right before our eyes and what we trusted to be standard operating procedure, no longer works.
And, that change includes the role of a woman. Going forward what's acceptable for men will be okay for women too. That includes not wanting to get married, not wanting children, being financially independent ,and yes, even having relationships with younger men.
The women I talk to are tired are putting everybody else's wishes before their own. It's old – i'ts tired and we're not going to take it anymore. We have been brainwashed to think that if we go after what we want then we're selfish. That's just not true! The people who constantly keep taking are the selfish ones. Women are now waking up to that fact.
The Real Cougar Woman is strong, independent, sexy and proud to be over 40. She is the new benchmark. She is changing how women are perceived all over the world. She is not concerned what other people think. She is trusting her instincts - knowing what's best for her.
The Real Cougar Woman realizes that life isn't a downward spiral at 45 or 55 or even 65. She's excited because each year presents a new challenge and new opportunity. It's not a time where dreams die – it's a time when dreams are reborn. And, if part of that dreams includes being with a younger man – well then, that's just fine with her. She is simply a fabulous female ready to explore all of her choices.
Change is not coming – it's already here. It's the perfect time for women and The Real Cougars couldn't be more excited. We say – "bring it on".
