That means our site is an ideal tool for finding a serious romance with a younger partner safely and securely.
There’s been an enormous amount of media coverage centred on older women dating younger men over the last decade.
In fact, because I don’t give a damn what anybody thinks and because I think I look great naked, I’m secure enough to focus instead on making my partners feel good about themselves. I remember one man I dated — 20 years old, gorgeous, body of a Greek god — sitting on the side of the bed one morning as I complimented him, saying to me shyly, “You make me feel really sexy.” People looking for love could benefit from operating on my principles of approach to sexual relationships.
I meet people from very different walks of life: men who are the first in their family to have gone to college; who have ambitions they’re making happen any way they can.
Yes, the sex is great, and the six-pack abs are nice, but what I also get out of my approach to dating is meeting men I admire and respect.
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.
I’m always pleased to see celebrities like Madonna, Tilda Swinton, Joan Collins, Demi Moore, and Wendi Deng being open about relationships and marriages with younger men.
The more of us who can be loud and proud about our unconventional relationships, the more we’ll break down society’s prejudices.
They may go on to date women their own age, or to move to different places, but we stay friends. And then every so often, their relationships end, and they return to me. When lots of stamina (and blissfully short recovery periods) meets confidence and experience, it’s a terrific combination.
Some women tell me they’d feel too insecure about their bodies to sleep with someone young, but when you operate on the criterion I do — that they have to be nice — you meet younger men who appreciate everything about older women.
I believe everyone should be free to design the relationship model that works for them — and for me that’s dating younger men. I respond to maybe one percent of all the approaches I get.
