Black Cougars are the New White Woman
Ladies, there’s a war going on and we don’t even realize it. Cougars aren’t just white women anymore. More and more older sistas are sharpening their claws and going for men 33 and under. I don’t know about you but that’s stepping into my territory.
Sista Cougars are growing in numbers and the crazy thing about them is that they move in silence. Unless you have a male friend that tells you about his dating life you’d never hear about them. For men of color, cougars are the new white woman!
“SG, these ladies might have to step it up,” Manny calls to tell me, still high off the fact his new cougar just paid for his boxing lessons. “These young ladies don’t stand a chance against them.”
This same cougar also footed the bill to for his car’s new tires and a trip to DR.
“So what’s the draw back with Cougars?” I ask.
“They want you when they want you. They value their time much more than young chicks and expect you to respect their time as well.”
I’ve dated younger men before, but we were in the same decade. I don’t know if I could date a man 10 years my junior. Halle Berry did it. But she’s a weirdo so that doesn’t count.
In the name of Girl Power I ain’t mad at an older woman going for hers. The question I do have is will she ever be truly fulfilled?
If I’m 45 and chasing a 30 year old man, coming out my pocket cause I make more than him, have the cash to waste and want to reward him for all the young hard pipe he’s blessing me with I don’t think I’d truly be happy. No matter how convincing a woman is I never believe that she wants to be single, childless, alone, paying for sex.
That goes against our body’s chemistry. We as women are wired to be mothers, nurturers and life partners.
Enough with my tangent…
Cougars want to steal my age appropriate peers. Why are they deciding to date younger? What’s wrong with the men their age? Should we women 33 and under start dating older men. Personally, older men make my head hurt. They are so set in their ways, stubborn and quick ejaculators. Yuck!
Will more and more men soon turn to Cougars? After all it is a recession and if I had someone offering to pay my expenses I’m sure I’ll be all over like Lil Kim on an operating table.
You know what, Cougars go ahead and do your thing. There are more than enough men to go around. And when the ones you have get tired of your graying pubic hairs they’ll come back to us.
