Then when arranged marriages became less popular and shunned by society the idea that people should date around their same age became very popular.
There has always been a less recognized society where a cougar dating a younger man was not unheard of.
The only limitation with this type of relationship therefore only exists in your mind and what your personal dating rules indicate.
Many young guys today are interested in dating Cougars but for different reasons.
My personal reason behind dating older women was inspired by maturity.
I find that cougars are more mature in very many aspects compared to girls/women my age.
For instance, Cougars have more emotional maturity.
