Older woman dating young men
Loraine Wapshott spied a rather attractive young man at a wedding last week.They flirted outrageously and she gave him her number.I turned him down, though, as he couldn't make eye contact. "When I got together with Graeme, my friends thought it was fantastic.They've been married to the same boring investment bankers for 20 years.Specialist dating websites have sprung up to satisfy the new demand - but even those who post on them can't agree whether cougars are to be applauded or abhorred.
For the record, though, I won't go out with anyone under 25."Her children, who are 19 and 15, must be relieved.She said to me the other day that it's all downhill after men turn 30."Still, she agrees that one can get carried away by this dating-younger-men business."I was out on the town with my Finnish friend Eya and Mexican friend Maria Elena recently," she recalls.We were in hysterics as they looked like they were barely past puberty."In the weeks and months to come, Karin and her copious friends won't just be described as "sexy older women" in the pubs and nightclubs they frequent.They will be dubbed "cougars" - and cited as evidence of a remarkable new social trend.
