Cougar Image Changing – Here’s What They Really Want

A new survey is confirming something I have been telling you for over three years. Cougars are not looking for one night stands - they are looking for warm, loving, long term relationships.  The old stereotype of a sugar mama looking for a fling with a boy toy is fading fast and thank heaven for that.Older women & younger man

This is the age of women's freedom. Women over 40 are out to change the antiquated double standard.  We are taking care of ourselves financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.  We have a youthful vitality that proves age is just a number.  We are women who are recognizing new relationship possibilities for ourselves.. A recent survey of 100 self-proclaimed cougars show that more than 90% want a long-term relationship with a younger man.

Here's what else Real Cougars are looking for. Young guys who are romantic, chivalrous and, best of all, relatively free of the emotional baggage from the past.

The Cougar Survey says 45% of the women questioned were ‘lifestyle cougars’ who have dated more than five younger men. About a third of them say they will never go back to dating men their own age.  For more on the cougar survey click here.

  1. Another positive article!! I am glad the survey indicates older women are seeking much more in a relationship!!!
    Even if women just wanted the one night stand so what ,so long as the two people are happy in the moment such arrangements only belong to those two people.
    There are really GREAT guys in this world and simply by opening the door to a wide range of ages gives women MORE choice. Now if only the rest of society can get the same message.

  2. I'd love to know more about the men who are dating Real Cougars. Who are THEY? What do they want? How many of them are looking for a mother figure–someone to take care of them? And how many simply see an attractive, vibrant woman they want to know better?
    It's not always easy. I have been dating a man 8 years younger than I (I'm 54, he's 46) for the last 3 years. He's a widower, with 2 children, and lives an hour away. Divorced, I am now caring for my youngest, a college sophomore. It'll be a while before I'm with my guy, but meanwhile I have work to do on my own career and future. We're making it work!
    But I do want to add–if you're over 40, you most likely have at least a wee bit of "baggage." But you've also learned from your mistakes and know how to do things better–a huge plus.
