Cougar dating age difference
Shevell -- who is 51 -- is 17 years younger than the former Beatle.While the image of the puma as a single woman interested in an older, experienced and possibly divorced man seems to be growing in the UK, there is no evidence that this new meaning is embraced or even recognized in the U. Yet, the picture of a young, nubile woman dating a seasoned man is far from uncommon.Society continues to put labels on what women desire -- whether referring to older or younger partners.But, ultimately, women continue to push back on old taboos and seek out the romantic partners of whatever age they want.
A 2010 British psychological study published in Evolution and Human Behavior asserted that men and women, in general, continue to follow traditional gender roles when searching for mates, and thus concluded that the posited "cougar phenomenon" does not exist, or more precisely, exists but is rare.
The study found that most men preferred younger, physically attractive women, while most women, of any age, preferred successful, established men their age or older.
