I love the NY Times Style section. Today features a hot photo from Cougar Town with Courtney Cox and Nick Zano and an article with the pseudo-intellectual title “Rethinking the Older Woman-Younger Man Relationship.” The basic idea is that now that women over 40 are more self-sufficient, they are freer to date men who are younger (and also poorer, of different religions and races).
Cougars have been maligned as desperate and inappropriate. And many men have been known to only date younger. Who can argue with feminine liberation? Can a cougar be omniverous and multi-generational? Can queers be cougars? What do you think?
My wife is 7 years older than me. Is she a cougar? I hope so 😀
Cougar seems to be as much about age as a state of mind. Sounds like you enjoy the “older” woman. That’s hot!
It’s crazy that women can’t date younger but men can. There is no real argument against “cougars.” >< Only stupid, sexist limitations.
I am a 40 year old women and I have been in a loving relationship for the past five years with a 27 year old man. We’re awesome together and we are proof that it can, and does, work.
Right on, Miss Lynn.
