Dating older guy bad

Nine women dish on what they've learned from playing cougar.

As the saying goes, "You're only as old as the man you're feeling." So, are Madonna, Mariah, and J-Lo all on to something with their considerably younger beaus?

I know you think we seem like “old, boring” people with “no imagination” (I’ve read your comments).And I get why it can be a little hard to understand. When I was 18-years-old, I was seeing a 28-year-old guy I worked with.It's All Relative "I've learned that it's all about perspective. I never saw my (now husband) Mike as being younger, because I always think of myself as younger than everyone else! They weren't as independent as I am, and sometimes I just wanted them to plan the date for once." — Pam, 252.

They're Drama-Free"When I have the choice, I date men who are 30 years younger than me.

I was the immature one for not recognizing it early on ...

and being caught up in superficial things like age." — Nicole, 256.

Or should we take a lesson from Demi and avoid robbing cradles? They're Not As Independent"Most of my ex's were younger.

We asked 10 women to tell us what they learned from dating a younger guy. In my opinion, it never turned out well because they were intimidated by where I was in life in comparison ... They never took the initiative, or showed confidence.

I wasn't sure how to exactly bring him to work events without feeling like a cougar..a tinge of embarrassment.
