There is a basic misunderstanding when it comes to cougars and cubs where their relationship is seen as an untraditional relationship much in the way that homosexual relationships are still not accepted in some places or the way that interracial relationships were once talked about. Cougars are independent, bright, and beautiful women.
Having said this, younger men should be direct to the point if they do not want to entertain a cougar.
A cougar is an older woman who is primarily attracted to and has sex with significantly younger men.
Thus fortysomething cougars would be attracted to men in their 20s, and fiftysomething cougars would pursue men in their 30s and so on.
Some cougars are less interested in a relationship than a sexual conquest, perhaps enjoying the fact that they are physically appealing to men who are considered to be in the prime of their virility.
To say that this type of relationship is only based on surface attraction, and that it’s the only thing that’s keeping either of them there, is insulting to both parties.
Despite the gap in ages, people are able to find common interests over any period of time.
Misconceptions about cougars are rampant, with Urban Dictionary even breaking it down based on what they wear and the city you can find them, “waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path.” While some of them may enjoy bars, there is no need for them to chase after the younger men. Cougars are not looking for prey despite the lingo which is so commonly used.
They are looking for an equal and as they have been unable to find it in men their own age, they look for younger men—or in some cases, just seem to attract younger men.
Expect her to be physically active as she wants to look good in her trendy, form-fitting clothes (which are usually a bit adventurous for her age). Almost all the time, a cougar has enough money to provide for her younger partner.
