    Okay, the wifi privacy intrusions, releasing their phone without multi-touch, and the awful site redesign, I could forgive. But now they've gone too far. :mad:

    Lecherousness, apparently it's not created equally. :rolleyes:


    I also would hazard a guess that the emotional damage in both dating scenarios is actually worse for the younger woman - older man than the younger man - older woman. (because VERY generally speaking men are often more content with relationships built primarily around sex.) But as ever, "it's a man's world".

    What's the problem with cougar dating sites? I can't see the rationale, unless this is only a first step in a drive of some sort.


    Speaking of cougars, anyone see Rita from Dexter on Desperate Housewives recently.. holy hell :D

    If it's got Courtney Cox attached to it, it should be banned.

    Well, some people like their partners to wear "police" gear, carry handcuffs, have big guns (when appropriate) and all that.

    And it's precisely Google's mentality that is preventing me from finding a sexy, mature woman to fulfill this fantasy for me. :mad:

    If you can't find an old lady that's willing, the problem ain't with Google.;):D:p

    I'm sure I'll be the last person on MacRumors to ever post a thread speculating about the cat name that will go with the next version of OS X. :p

    And DC, ahh, yes, DC.... Good times. :)

    Bah! Looks like I'll have to meet cougars the old fashioned way --- at children's playgrounds and cosmetic counters at a department store.

    That's a good idea! Except that those tester ladies who are always spraying things everywhere kind of disturb me.

    I think this thread probably does explain why my "good" post count is so low. :eek:

    Don't forget Trader Joe's! Once you're done shopping, she'll drive you back to her home, open a bottle of wine, and throw on some Eurythmics.

    Actually already wrote about it couple of months ago, you can find it if you google:
    10.7 snow cougar

    DC is the fricken upside down world where girls my age go for old bolding fugly dudes and I got hit on by quite a number of older women.



    Dude, it's a joke.

    I can do way better than two buck Chuck! But actually, I volunteered to serve wine at a wine tasting once, and it was pretty surreal... towards the end, there were these two women, and they were like, "You're so beautiful, just you standing there makes the wine taste good." :eek:

    (At this rate, this is going to be the first thread started by a moderator to get wastelanded in a long time. :D )

    I've always wondered why they're called 'Cougars' anyway. If you're in the UK and seeking involvement, try Post Offices on Tuesdays and Thursdays- pension day :D

    And if the post office doesn't grab you there is always bingo nights or hanging round a I meeting (Womens Institute). If you fail to get a date at the WI, at least you might get a nice slice of cake and a cup of tea!

    Just to be clear... Americans don't really mean random elderly women when we say cougar. :p At least I usually mean good looking, successful women in their 40s or 50s who date younger men.
