Here is a post I made for Wingman Magazine, about older women dating younger men. It didn't make the article. You can read the full article here.
Women past their 30th birthday are likely to have been married at least once. They are not new to relationships and they are more comfortable with their own bodies than at any other time in their life. They may have been working and they can support themselves and even a child they may already have. They do not need a man to provide for them, and as such, they are able to see men as objects for fun and companionship.
Established women with high self-esteem can enjoy the company of a younger man, receiving the ego boost of attracting younger men while also engaging in some provider behaviors if they choose. A Cougar can appreciate the power difference they may not feel in a relationship with their same age peers. The Cougar is able to establish their needs in the relationship with less compromise. Enjoying sex and having a strong-bodied partner to explore is part of why Cougars choose younger men, but the lack of emotional connection is refreshing to a woman that may desire to live selfishly after sacrificing earlier in her life.
