The trend of younger men dating older women is on the up. And with the term Cougar now fully entrenched to describe the older women looking for the younger man, we have seen the rise of cougar dating sites set up specifically to match cougars with younger men.
Just What is a Cougar
Whilst there has been some speculation around the definition of a cougar it has roughly settled on the following:
A women in her late 30’s, 40’s or early 50’s that goes after men in their 20’s, usually for a casual sexual relationship, but sometimes for more serious relationships
This is not to be mistaken by a Puma or a Jaguar. A puma is essentially a younger cougar – in her late 20’s or early 30’s but, like cougars, still like to go for significantly younger men.
Jaguars are also like Cougars in that they seek younger men but they are in the older category – they are in their mid to late 50’s.

You may not believe me, but I have news about dating and relationships: Sugar Mama dating seems to be the new cool!
The name of the new craze?
Sugar Mama Syndrome!
While it is a phenomenon that dates way back, the recent uptrend and regularity at which you see younger guys looking for sugar mamas, and Sugar mama looking for younger men these days, makes think.
History has established that while a man dating a woman much younger in age can be passed as a norm, however, a sugar momma dating younger man draws a lot of controversy and comments – most of it negative. Not surprisingly, the wider the age gap, the wider the controversy.
Even as many look down on it as a taboo, a different school of thought will scream “age is but a number. It’s all about choice.”
Opinions, surely, is at a wide variance when it comes to this questionable new fad, but one thing remains an established fact: guys are dating older ladies much more so now than ever before, not giving the slightest thought or consideration to what society and gossipers think or have to say.
Giving it a thought one might ask: what is driving these rare hookups? Is there an element of perversion to it all, or is this trend just fuelled by the fact that there are more benefits dating someone much older has?
Let us look at some five reasons while younger guys are hooking up with much older women, then perhaps we may have 5 questions less on why this is happening all too frequently these days
Cougars have been through, experienced and learned from these types of relationships. They know the very fabric that makes up a healthy and enjoyable relationship.
They have seen love and loved, so they will be a better lover. They know better than to pick up petty fights that a younger girl normally would.
They are just more experienced all round, and their sugar boys tend to have less relationship stress as a result of this.
2. Older women are more experienced with life in general
Life and the world is altogether a very complex affair, and you’d agree that it takes great tact to move through. Older women apparently have it going for them here – they’ve seen it all, done it all.
Due to their advancement in age, they are richly opinionated about life and people. Wisdom, sophistication, social etiquettes? They have this in full supply, and their younger dates stand to gain from their wealth of knowledge and experience.
3. Sugar Mommies Are Better resourced
This is a tricky one, but the average guy will like to hope that, sometimes, his lover could help with finances in any capacity somewhere along the line, when he is incapable to do so.
This is something a younger girl might find harder to do owing to her understandably humble state of finances. However, older women are better equipped to go over the top in this department due to their larger purse, and this can be a plus for a sugar boy when he is badly back in his bills.
4. Cougars Are Intimately Better
We get better the more we practice, and guess what?
This rule applies in bed too!
This is the one reason many people believe younger guys are looking for the oldies.
Greater experience on the side of the cougar means knowing more about what turns men on, and a deep wealth of tact and knowledge on how to satisfy them.
Personal Space In a Relationship
While the reverse might be the case for some older women who feel very insecure, having been in and out of relationships before, most cougars how important personal space is in a relationship to her man and to herself.
She will never demand her “son” to baby-sit her all the time and would respect his space and privacy as well.
There you have it.
