5. You are such a cougar.
Cougars are women who prey on young and innocent men. So by default, people swear by this definition and extend it as a ‘courtesy’ to women who are older than their male partners. For those who need a lesson, a cougar is a confident and independent woman who young men seek out of their own accord.
6. Your man will cheat on you one day.
Because there are plenty of fish around – young fish, mind you. Or, if he can go around with one older woman, he can ditch her for another. Older women, therefore, must stay cautious while dating a younger man. What holds any relationship in place is the understanding between two people, age has nothing to do with it.
7. What… is he is just having fun?
It’s bad enough to ask an older woman this question, let alone question a man’s integrity. Younger men can be as successful and committed in a relationship as older men. So, why should that change the minute they fall in love with an older woman? Pray, do tell.
8. Date someone your age.
If that was her motivation, the woman wouldn’t find herself in a relationship with a younger man in the first place. Love happens irrespective of age. It may be blind, it may be super exciting, but it also survives the tests of time. In this context, the tests being these mindless pieces of advice.
