But, if he reads her age on paper or online, he automatically thinks he wants someone 10 years younger. When we do speed dating events, we have to market according to the ‘stereotypes.’ For example, we’ll say women between 35-44 and men between 38-47, a lot of older women don’t like this, but I say we have to trick the guy’s mind. Same thing goes for women who decide a man’s profession is ‘not good enough’ to be considered dating material. A successful friend of mine married a factory worker and he is the most amazing husband, we should all be so lucky, he cherishes her, he does everything for her.They’ve been married for 11 years and it’s still going strong.

The ideal cougar — a Manolo Blahnik-wearing fortysomething with a fabulous Manhattan loft, fabulous friends, and a fabulous sexual appetite for younger men — is actually a media construction.If you’ve read my book you know that I have a lot to say about expectations, or having lists of must haves. FERTILE HUNTING GROUNDS FOR COUGARS I asked Valerie why she thought it was difficult for women to meet guys. Sandra gave an odd example of a place to meet men, she said she went to a funeral with a friend who was lamenting the dating scene.She said that Toronto, for example, is a huge city and that people don’t come here to find relationships, they come here to find a career and climb the ladder, relationships are not a priority. Most older women and men don’t generally go to bars or clubs, Valerie advises networking, hiking, tennis, etc., she also highly recommends travel, particularly Europe. She said she had given up, was done with it, that it was too hard, but before they even got out of the car, her friend saw the widower and said ‘hey, he looks really good and he’s on his own now.’ Her friend told her funerals were the new place to scope out potentials…eww.It featured myself, Producer & host Laura Bilotta, Executive Producer and host of Inside Jokes, Sandra Carusi and Relationship Expert, best known for coining the term ‘Cougar,’ the one and only Valerie Gibson.Valerie, like me, is all about empowering women, encouraging them not to lose the ability to have fun, to make sure they know that, contrary to former beliefs, your best before date is no longer 30.
