When will these older women accept that they are over the hill after crossing 40 and admit that the younger women have more youth and are prettier? Why even compete and debate? This is nuts, moms!

Don't we all look less attractive as we age??

And if at 35 woman didn't do all this stuff, there would be posts complaining about how women of a certain age just give up on themselves.

Just curious - what's "middle aged" or at what age do women become cougars in your opinion?

OMG. Trust me when I say that if an older woman sleeps with a much younger guy, it's not because she's yearning for youth, or hoping for a deep and lasting relationship, any more than the guy is. It takes two to tango and two to play any sort of game. "Cougars" are no more likely to sleep around than any other age group - so why is it worse when they go for a quick tumble or want something less than some long term relationship?

I was single in my forties. I wasn't desperate, and I didn't have to put out in order to have plenty of dating and romance in my life. In fact, I wasn't even remotely INTERESTED in younger men, though I had several opportunities and offers. And I ended up marrying a man close to my age, who wasn't even remotely interested in younger women. In the interim, I dated whoever I wanted to and had a very full social calendar. In fact, my twenty year old son once exclaimed, "Damn, Mom - you got more game than I do!"

Most women in their forties are not particularly interested in younger men - they don't find them intellectually stimulating. And intellect is important in the long run.

Another excellent way to tell the true age of a woman is to look at her hands! They don't lie and people don't get lifts on them AFAIK. Ropy, veiny, mottled, spotted, wrinkled and the face doesn't look that old? ... hmm ... something is not right ... you get the idea. (Of course someone with a condition like certain types of arthritis can have hideous looking hands, so their hands can look older than they are.)

I'm 47 and I don't class myself as a cougar or an old slapper, because I don't go hunting.

I look like a cougar, and I do all the sorts of things you imagine one would do (active social life, hangs out round inappropriate venues and gigs, talks to anyone) but my goal is not to get laid especially by a young guy.

I like me a silver fox. Sadly there are hardly any left. Does that qualify me as a cougar?

SF's are sexy as hell to me, and are easy to catch too, they are slower moving.

Young guys are just that - young guys. Why would I want a rude unfinished glass of plonk when I can have a fine aged wine?
Old slappers! Great sense of humor on you Aussies!

How much younger makes a woman a cougar?

Men 10 years younger?

15?

20?

Another question ... do cougars just date ... or do they marry their prey?


Another question ... at what age can a woman become a cougar ... hmmm ... okay just looked back over thread ... some are saying cougarhood can begin as low as 30 years of age ... uh oh ... that means ...

... if cougars marry not just date, I may be a cougar because my husband is 10 years younger than me!

OMG! I swear I never was an old slapper!
