Cougar women: Is it ok to be a cougar?

If you can deal with the stigma

This shouldn’t come as a shock, but should point it out anyway – not everyone thinks dating someone twenty years younger is acceptable.

Your friends might react in surprising ways, and family can sometimes be even more reactionary. Some will say ‘You go girl!’ and some might cut you deep; "Stop making a fool of yourself and act your age."

As long as you’re prepared for the fact that someone, at some point, will probably react in a negative way to your younger man of choice, then you should be OK.

On the other hand, if you’re a sensitive soul, you might want to rethink your dating style.

Being a cougar means growing a thick skin like J-Lo, 42 who is dating 24-year old Casper Smart, as pictured.
