So you're ready to date a cougar? Glad to hear it, but it always pays to have a bit of background info first - especially if you're a newcomer to the cougar dating scene.
We figure that you probably already know what a cougar is - a hot older women who likes to date and mate with young studs like you, right?
Well, maybe. But you've got to remember that nature is a wonderful thing and it is, if nothing else, pretty damn diverse. Unless you happen to have stumbled across a set of 40 something identical twins on the hunt for young blood (and if you are, then you are indeed a lucky guy) you have to realise that no two cougars are exactly the same.
In fact within the species they are many types of cougar female. I know you're a busy man so let's break down the three main types for you in bite sized chunks:
1. The Moneyed Cougar: This is the type who's made it big in her career or married a guy who did and then divorced him, taking at least half of what he spent years working his balls off for. Poor sucker - but then again his loss is your gain, and your moneyed Cougar is going to show you a good time on the town and you won't have to even look at your wallet, let alone dip into it. When you date a cougar with money, your days of cleaning out the bank account just to impress some chick are over. This is the good life, my friend, so enjoy it while it lasts.
2. The Angry Cougar: Tread carefully with this one - she may just bite. Date a cougar who's got the angry gene and you're going to suffer for your art. Why is she angry? Don't ask. With a women in her mid 40s to late 50s there are just so many reasons why she may be pissed off with life you don't want to know. But for the record, classic reasons are a cheating (ex) husband; empty nest syndrome after her kids go to college or the final realisation that her looks are heading south fast and there's not a damn thing she can do about it. But wait - she can make herself feel better by bedding a guy half her age! And you could be that lucky fellow - as long as you remember not to put her delicately poised whiskers out of place.
3. The Sweet Cougar: This is one of the trickiest cougars out there, because it's debatable if the sweet cougar is really a cougar at all. This is the type of cougar woman who's read a book about how to be a cougar and thought she'd give it a try without fully appreciating what it takes. Looking like a cougar is the easy part - options include power dress 80s business suits and low cut slut-wear. It doesn't really matter as long as they look hot and in control. Strong make up (war paint) is preferred and push up bra is pretty much essential. But it's more than about the look - it's the attitude that truly defines a cougar woman. The sweet cougar will try to roar but if she sounds more like a purring pussy, it may be best to be kind and let her go on her way. Unless of course you're feeling mean, in which case you can shift from cougarbait to lion, take control and have some fun.
Whichever type you encounter when you first date a cougar, try to remember that a cougar is a very special type of beast and at all times must be respected but never feared - they'll smell that a mile off and you'll be no challenge for the genuine predatory urban cougar.
