Pumas dating younger men dating personals washington
Regardless of which type of kitty a woman may be, Barkley says any woman with the right attitude can be a cougar.
“A woman who is well defined, strong, flexible, confident and goes after what she wants but can still remain a lady, is worthy of the cougar name,” Barkley said.
But clearly, younger guys have some appeal (we have at least a little faith in Demi Moore), so what’s behind the cougar craze?
Hilary Ricigliano, a sophomore at Syracuse University, loves dating her younger man.
With less than 2 years age difference between herself and her recent younger ex-boyfriend, Chelsea Citro, a student at Syracuse University (SU), still considers herself a bit of a cougar.
“A college cougar is a girl who dates a guy who is not in college yet,” Chelsea says.
Chelsea says the most difficult part of her relationship was when she came to Syracuse University for college.
“It was really hard relating to him since I am in college.
“But what we are seeing is more and more women in their 20's calling themselves cougars because they relate to the confidence that a cougar woman has who ‘knows what she wants and goes for it,’” Barkley says.
Celebrities like Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz, Ivana Trump, and Linda Hogan all have had significant others more than 10 years their junior.
With age differences sometimes pushing 20, or even 30 years, these couples obviously never learned (or at least, never followed) the “Never date anyone under half your age plus seven” Rule.
“I've had more experiences through college and life, that he had not.
That caused a logistical off-balance in our relationship, and resulted in our short-lived relationship,” she said.
