Dating younger womwn
Whereas sitcoms like Cougar Town had a less than a mature approach to these relationships.
But ever since the 1967 film The Graduate solidified it as the ultimate fantasy for young men and countless parodies have followed in its wake.
When we look at how tabloids react to older women dating younger men, we can see this subconscious judgement in effect but the fantasy doesn’t match the reality.
“When an older woman looks for a younger partner, she’s probably quite comfortable with her sexuality,” she explains, “it’s likely that she’s already been married or had children.
Off-screen, these relationships have flourished: The very word ‘cougar’ is most certainly moot.
Without getting too entangled in semantics, Elite Singles resident psychologist, Salama Marine, is quick to discuss this point.
This means that she’s on the same wavelength as her younger companion, who’s probably not entertaining the thought of starting a family.” This can be a breath of fresh air: “It enables older women to regain a bit of youthfulness with their partner,” Marine adds.
A young admirer is a welcome alternative to the more vintage male, especially in the spontaneity department.
