5 Things Cougars Want In A Man

Happy couple What does a Real Cougar Woman want in her man?  Some might say that we're complicated - but that's not really true. 

I have put together a wish list that's pretty simple. I think most women would agree that these things are very important in sustaining a happy relationship. 

A Man Who Listens -Real Cougars wants a guy who looks into our eyes and actually convinces us he cares about what we're saying.

That's a rarity especially, if you have been with one person for a long time.  They definitely have fine-tuned how to tune us out.  And, that 's why listening is very important to us.

Man Who Loves - Real Cougars want a man who isn't afraid to show you how much he loves you.  Not just tells you - shows you.  Small gestures, like making dinner, buying flowers mean a lot.  Needless to say, we also want someone who can also make our toes curl between the sheets.

A Man Who Provides - Yes, even though we are perfectly capable of providing for ourselves, we want our man to be able to do the same.  This myth about sugar mamas is just that -  a myth.

A Man Who Shares -A man who shares his feelings is a gem.  Honestly, guys we don't like to guess or try to read minds. Just tell us what's going on - it's so much simpler.

A Man Who Like Adventure - We want a man who wants to try new things.  He doesn't have to dive out of airplanes, but he does have to go with the flow and not get stuck in the past. Real Cougars love to try new and exciting things and want a man who can keep up with our energy.

So those are the top 5.  If you ladies want to add to the list - please do.

Glad that you want to learn how to be with a smart, confident woman. So many guys have no clue of what women really want.


Great advice for a guy of any age!

I concur with Kathy everyone loves compliments. In fact, a genuine compliment can really start a conversation, and keep it going.

Another important part of communicating with anyone is being respectful, but if you are doing all of the above you are in a good place.

Thanks for the real and relevant advice, looking forward to putting it into practice:)


I totally agree, especially the one about a man who like to adventure!!! we cougar women get bored so easily! we need excitement every now and then!

I would add to this list: A man who compliments us. If he acknowledges how attractive we look, the new hairstyle, new dress,etc. it really makes us feel appreciated & super sexy!

Wow ! This is all true I feel everything you said is so on the money !!! I got to find one like that
