Don’t feel you need to do something formal like go to the opera or theatre just because she’s older. She’s into younger guys because she still looks and feels younger than her age, so don’t be afraid to suggest something fun and relaxed. Ask her what type of things she likes to do and then pick something that fits your budget. Yes, you will be paying on the first date. Even if she insists on paying, tell her she can pay next time. You want to show her that you’re not looking for a meal ticket.
Cougar or Sugar Mama?
- Blake: What is the difference between a Cougar and a Sugar Mama?
- Lucia: This is a great question because many people often confuse the two. A Sugar Mama is a woman of any age who provides financial and material "assistance" to men, usually younger. She may or may not be a Cougar (over 40). On the other hand, a Cougar may also be a Sugar Mama, but not usually. She's generally not looking to provide for the Cub but rather either for a sexual fling or a relationship with a man at least 10 years her junior. Hope this clears things up!
