Singles Group Makes History with First 'Cougar Cruise.'
According to the article, the problem is not an overabundance of cougars on the prowl, but way more 'cubs' than cougars signing up for the cruise.
Seriously? Bonus for me! Although I wouldn't have predicted that one.
Any guys here who can shed light on this dynamic for me? Not that I mind in the slightest being 42 myself, watching teen angst TV series and wondering if I'm a perv for drooling over the hunky actor who is more like adoption age for me. But I didn't know we were that
in demand. Curious to know what the appeal is.
Attempting to put myself in the guys' shoes, I personally I really can't stand the 40-50 something woman who is trying so
hard to appeal to a younger base that her caked on makeup, bad dye job, and South Beach Hooker outfit ends up making her look even older than she is.
Or is it the allure of experience that attracts the Ashtons to the Demis? Perhaps because guys supposedly hit their sexual peak (whatever that is) around 18 while women hit theirs around 40.
Is it the general wisdom and groundedness that comes with a battle scar or three in the game of life? Is it the ones who don't 'need a man,' secure with ourselves?
Is it guys looking for affairs rather than full-on relationships? I know a lot of younger women are still under great pressure to marry while we of the generation ahead of them have been there, done that, or have just plain gotten over that need.
As for myself, I almost never wear makeup and have never really obsessed over looking younger than I am. Then again, I sort of hit the DNA jackpot on that one. Our family tends to get carded well into our 30s and 40s. I wear jeans and t-shirts because they're comfortable, not to try and look 'teen.' I relate to whomever I relate to, and yes, anymore those whom I relate to are often much younger than I am. But I really don't feel like a 'cougar on the prowl.' It just kind of happens.
So how about it folks? Anyone have a spotlight to shine on this?
