Cougar dating is growing in popularity in recent years. Whereas before it was only celebrities daring to flaunt their older woman/younger man relationships, now it is quite common to see these couples out and about. They really seem to be enjoying each others company!
For all you younger guys who are fascinated with the idea of dating a cougar there are a few things you need to know before you jump into it. Dating an older woman is nothing like dating someone your own age, or even someone younger.
One of the first things you need to keep in mind is that any successful older woman is not going to get into a serious relationship with a younger guy right off the bat. Secondly, she may be looking for a one-night stand or a bit of excitement, and that is all.
A cougar wants and needs to be treated with respect, and she deserves it! A woman with a career and a level of success that she has attained expects to be treated a certain way, and you have to be man enough to measure up to her standards, no matter what your age.
If you want to attract a cougar take steps to prepare yourself for this adventure. Learn all you can about her, but don’t make yourself look like a stalker! Maybe you have a friend who could introduce you to her. Find out her likes and dislikes once you have met, but keep it low key and friendly until you have established a friendship.
No matter what your age you have to act older than what you are. She doesn’t want to be made to feel like your babysitter! She may be open to doing some of the things you like, but you also have to meet her on her level, too. A give and take relationship works wonders!
Dress appropriately when you take her on a date. Casual dress is fine when you are alone, but a night out on the town requires you to step it up a notch. Trust us-she will appreciate your efforts, and her friends will be impressed as well. Do it right if you want a second date!
Have your wallet ready! You cannot possibly expect her to pay. Unless the two of you have made a prior arrangement, it is up to you to foot the bill. She is undoubtedly used to her date paying for everything, so do not come off as some sort of cheapskate. You are trying to impress her, are you not?
If you think this relationship could be definitely going somewhere, and if you get the same vibes from her, take it nice and slow. There is no reason to push her into something more serious until you have spent some quality time together. You need to get to know each other before you take the relationship to the next level. She may be ready right away, but you should exercise some restraint until you are sure this is what you both want.
