Cougar and dating and articles
The “cubs” are expected to vote on the woman they want to be crowned Miss Cougar Canada.“It’s the first one I’ve ever gone to. I’m just looking forward to having a really fun night.”“A lot of them are not as secure financially, so they can’t really do as much as I like to do, travel and take the time off.I’m self-employed, I’m used to doing things I like to do when I want to do them.Dating older women has become so popular it has created a shortage, according to the organizer of the first Cougar Convention in Toronto this Friday.Rich Gosse, who bills himself as America’s foremost authority on finding a romantic partner, claims Demi Moore and Madonna have made dating older women so socially acceptable that men who were once afraid to be caught dead with older woman are now flocking to them.“There’s not enough cougars to go around,” says Gosse, who has held cougar events across North American and Australia.Women in the low-fertility group (ages 27-45) were much more likely to report having more sex, wanting more sex, and having more (and more intense) sexual fantasies."If you're trying to maximize your remaining fertility, it makes sense to seek out a younger partner because his sperm is healthier," says lead researcher Judith Easton.
