I have a gripping tale of a boy who once got entangled with two older women at different times, and in his own words, “it wasn’t that funny.”
His story has inspired this article and by virtue of that I have tried to unravel the air of mystery that surrounds such relationships and have deeper understanding as to why men are attracted to older woman commonly referred to as cougars.
Is the love genuinely base on mutual love or it transcends that boundary?
In an earlier article I wrote entitled, “Does Age Matter in a Relationship?” I said among other things that age is just a number and that maturity and age are two different components altogether.
The stereotype has always been a constant reminder that men prefer younger partners. However over the last couple of years, backed by advancement and deliberate attempt to show equitability, women are rushing for younger me like never before. Modern women emphasis this power to demonstrate that they can have what they want at any time just like their male counterparts.
An age-gap romance is something conservative society struggle to come to terms with. The relationship at a point becomes fragile when there is avalanche of seers and ridicule from the public. The public disapproval of this kind of relationship has been reinforced because of the existing system that makes men insusceptible to some of its ironies.
