by Linda Franklin – The Real Cougar Woman
Mr. Big has money, ambition and good looks, but is that what Real Cougars really want? It might be our fantasy, but as we mature we realize other qualities matter a lot more.
Researchers found that younger women are much more likely to be seduced by a high-flier but more seasoned women come to value more deep-rooted qualities like reliability, friendship, understanding and a man who loves us for who we are – warts and all.
A survey of 9,000 women aged 16 to 75 found that wealth and ambition in a man were the two favourite qualities for younger women, with half admitting they look for one who can afford to lavish them with expensive amenities.
Almost a quarter of the younger women said they looked for a man who had set his sights high in his career. In contrast, more than half of older women wanted a man who can offer them kind words in times of need.
All generations agreed on the importance of sexual chemistry in seeking a mate, with women in their 70s valuing it more than those in their 40s.
It’s reassuring to know that once we have experienced fabulous sex we never want to live without it – and thank goodness we don’t have to.
The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality. Linda Franklin says,”there is no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible”. Linda’s book, Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.
