Cougar Etiquette 101: What Not To Do When Dating A Younger Man

18 comments
July 31, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin

Cougars are all the rage for men in their twenties through forties (although the latter are kidding themselves—they’re no young cubs). But just what is it about women in the 40 plus group that is such a turn on? You’ll thrive in the game of dating younger men if you can pin that down, and if you can avoid the bad behavior of your fellow 40-plus felines.

    Im so mad , I dont even know what came over me I didnt even get to sleep with him-he stopped before anything happened and then wouldn’t even text me back–wow have not known how to deal with this and now I feel addicted to the drama-omg

  • lori

    that is for sure-a rollar coaster ride that has been insane-havent been through this type of drama since age 16

    i do not think an older woman and a much younger man can last…They have to have something in common…men mature at a later stage than men so this would not be a good match.

    Dressing too young isn’t a good idea. However, going in the other extreme and dressing like his mother or grandmother isn’t flattering, either.

    Also, try not to use a lot of slang. The man you’re dating is attracted to you because of your wisdom and intelligence. Using a lot of slang makes you sound unintelligent. And your man might think you’re mocking him or making fun of the way he speaks.

    i don’t encourage dating younger men. stick to your age or older. if you must do so don’t date no one younger than 5 years your age.

    All of the advice is good except for the paying for dates advice. He’s the man, you’re the woman. He should pay for ALL your dates whether he suggests the place or you suggest the place.

      Its 2013 not 1967 it doesn’t always have to be the man. Of course I want to pay but sometimes when my girl pays it shows me respect

      • Queening

        ImI currently dating a younger man, I invited him for lunch…I paid! No big deal!

      • mskane808

        key word fool ur “GIRL” . she’s not a date. an u right its not 1967 no more b/c men back then were more respect an didn’t feel a certain of way about paying for dates.

        • Ricoswag305

          Wait hold up who the fuk you calling a fool you dumb b!tch, you think anyone will respect you let alone A man. Have fun paying for the bills no respect having a$$

          • mskane808

            typical, i got a man , matter of a fact a boss. mr disrespect , so bills we both pay, im surprise any woman with you, with your level of respect, saying the word fool was not enough for your weak azz to call me a b****.. . like i said typical new era nicca.,

            • Ricoswag305

              Calling someone a fool without even knowing who the fuk you’re talking to deserves to be called b!tch. If you came correct the first time we wouldn’t have an issue and I do have a girl who respects and gets treated with respect. Typical new era broad

              • mskane808

                u sounded like a fool so that’s what i called you., still no need to call a woman the B word. good day.

                • Ricoswag305

                  Lets put it in words you can comprehend. Regardless if it was with the current girl that I am with or girl’s that I have dated in the past, there isn’t anything wrong with a girl saying hey let me take you out which I have let happen. I own a business taking a girl out or spending money isn’t a problem being taken advantage of is a problem. If a girl i’m dating wants to take me out it shows me that she has traits of being independent and there’s a mutual respect. We both work hard for our money and we both spend it accordingly regardless whose paying what. With that being said me sounding like a fool and you actually being a fool is now more tolerable.

                  • mskane808

                    First an foremost this is not about to keep being up for discussion, so comprehend that! regardless of what the hell you say a man wanting a women to pay is crazy. it should be her choice, an not a demand or a need. men who got it don’t worry bout nothing ( french montana ). continue to work hard while me an mines work smart, an since i’m being a fool is now more tolerable. you shouldn’t waste your time responding back. in my t.i voice be easy.

                    • Ricoswag305

                      Hahaha yeah after you just recited something from french montana this shyt is done loll child
