Young women in this area are very career driven and spend many years getting degrees and starting their careers.While many women elsewhere have kids by 25 or even earlier, women here tend not to even think about marraige until they are pushing 30 and starting to hear stories of advanced maternal age. Women outnumber men in the District and I'm willing to bet in the DC area.I shared one of those funny Facebook photos recently that said, "Madonna is 55, her boyfriend is 22. I had to laugh at the high maintenance comment I heard time and time again from these young men. Back when I was in my 40s, younger men would write me online all the time and I'd always say, "Are you looking for a mom? " They just felt younger women were too high maintenance for them and had far too much drama in their lives.
But every now and then, you run into those who just seem not to fit into the "normal" Cougar profile but still ogling the youngsters (and the likes of me who is not young). A "Coyote" is a woman who just flat out too old to even try to date young men.I wouldn't know anything about cougars but as someone who enjoys a little age difference I say why not? I would just imagine that a "cougar" would have to be careful that she isn't in a sugar mama situation.As others have pointed out, the issue isn't as much that there are a ton of older women looking for younger men (i.e., cougars), as much as there are a lot of older single women who are looking to date anyone who they like, and sometimes that means that they will date younger men.Editor's Note: A lot has changed in our mountain towns since the pioneering days, but one thing that remains constant is the oppressive lack of women in our less-than-urban communities.The long winters — and even longer dry spells — have many a lonely ski bum made.Parallel direction of parties but you just might healthy and clean.
