Demi Moore did it. So did Madonna and Halle Berry. This trend of older women dating younger men is called the Cougar Craze, and it’s sweeping the country.
On the Prowl?
At a New York speed-dating event, good-looking younger men wooed women 35 and older who made at least $500,000 a year. Jeremy organized the event and says he was just answering a demand from affluent ladies.
Kat, 51, says she’s no cougar; she just likes to date younger guys because men her age are set in their ways. She says her 23-year-old ex-boyfriend, Ryon, had a much higher libido than older men. Her friend, Nancy, says Kat has a great head for business, but a bad one for men.
Bobbi had an 11-year relationship with a man who was 17 years her junior, but she says once she turned 50, he saw her as too old. She wants to be in a relationship again, but not with an older man. Her son, Nathan, says someone still wet behind the ears can’t appreciate all Bobbi has to offer.
