She's back! Missty from Life is Good. has returned! Her posts are always good and full of the things we really want to talk about. Missty just celebrated her 26th Wedding Anniversary and has four nearly grown boys, two of which recently left the nest. She loves to cook and garden. Funny, smart and a wonderful blogger we're very glad to have her offer up more dish in the post below. Enjoy!
They're women over 40. They like younger men. And in pop-culture circles they're called - often jokingly - 'cougars’.
Here is a definition from the Urban Dictionary:
Cougar is a female, usually between thirty and fifty years-old, who enjoys the sexual company of younger men. Cougars are only usually interested in men under the age of twenty-five. Also, Cougars are non-committal, choosing to move from mate to mate without ever settling down. It is not uncommon for the same Cougar to attack (sleep with) many different men in the same group of friends. Furthermore, Cougars are older and more practiced in the ways of snaring a mate so they will rarely broadcast their intentions to sleep with you until you are already in her Jetta, headed for the condo she just bought. It is this elusive behavior that earns her the name “Cougar.”
So now that we have the definition figured out.
How would you feel grocery shopping with your 23 yr old semi-adult son and realizing he is getting tons of text’s.You are trying to ask if he and his brother who share a condo, if they need bread, or tortillas.And he keeps say what mom? or what did you say?
So the conversation went like this:
Me: T who are you texting?
T:Oh this lady.
T:Silly laughs, as he continues to text, ignoring me as I ask if he and his brother needed some veggies.
Me:T, I am trying to help you two out this week, you need groceries, you have no money, can you give me a minute of your time.
T:Yeah sure mom. Sorry.This lady won’t leave me alone.Me and brotherand a friend are going to meet her and a couple of friends later tonight.
Me:Lady?Whats this girls name?
T:Oh she’s not a girl.She is 35.
Me:Seriously!A bit old, don’t you think?
T:Mom, we had some45 yr old cougars hang out with us at the hot tub last weekend.
Me:You did?!!!You do realize they could be your mom?
Me:Yeah, I just turned 45!
Ugh!I never gave it a second thought before.I was always of the mindset “hey if you find love, and your happy, does it matter the age differences”?Well, um yeah it does if you are talking about my baby boys!LOL.
I know they are adults.But, to hear women MY age, be interested in my boys… like that.Yuck.
I can tell you the last thing I would want would be a boy my sons ages, for me in a relationship!lol
So what do you think?Is it ok to have such a huge age span?
Does it matter who is older in the relationship? The man or woman?
Have you had a relationship with a person much older/younger?If so how did it go?
And is it even fair to be calling these women cougars?
