Quotes about dating younger men
Other similar stereotypes include sugar daddy or sugar mama: what these have in common in addition to an age difference is an imbalance of power and wealth.The wealth and power are held primarily by the older person: the younger, poorer half is sometimes referred to as a "sugar baby." Other terms of "alpha cougar," "beta cougar," and "sweet" or "angry" cougars appear to be categories invented by dating websites.If you're wearing cougar clothes and prowling the cougar den, then own up to why you're there and what you want! The only thing that's changed is the response required from you. Depending on how far you decide to take this thing, you may have sex with your youthful partner — if you're lucky, that is.
In Cougarland, the fashion watchwords are shorter, tighter, brighter and barer. The natural, let-it-all-hang-loose look of our younger years is long gone.
If your mother's comment on your outfit would have been that you look like you're asking for it, then you're dressed exactly right. Today's guys have come to expect that women will be outfitted in such exotica as pushup bras, garter belts and (ouch) thongs.

By the way: Don't be surprised to find your young man similarly shaved (except for maybe his face). Resist the impulse to listen too sympathetically to his problems, to warn him that he really shouldn't be smoking or drinking so much, to tell him how he might rev up his career or do better in school (yikes), much less to give him too-explicit directions in the romance arena.
And by all means, don't gasp if you notice that he's got a heart manscaped into his chest hair. Remember those nasty girls at your junior high dances, who wore too much makeup and made out in public with all the boys? Forget about playing hard to get or feeling like you have to follow "The Rules" in order to bag a man. And, whatever you do, never ever tell him to clean up his room. Younger men may have less flab, more stamina and a better appreciation for strong women than their older counterparts, but they're exactly like guys your age in one way: They love attention.
