For the past year, Susan has been happily dating a 30-year-old.
She echoes Urban Cougar Brenda, "We have fun." Women like Susan and Brenda no longer worry about society viewing them as "cradle robbers" for snatching up younger men in an era when online dating sites like and are geared exclusively toward facilitating these intergenerational hook-ups.

I noticed a submissive woman is not on men's top list as their heart desire after a long run woman that they are not worthy of.
When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.
Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
Brenda laughs, "I'm the poster child for the 'Urban Cougar' trend. The divorced mother of two finds men her age "kinda tired.
I mean, sure, there are some things that are different about dating someone who isn’t your age, but for the most part it’s really not that big of a deal. The most common reaction to the age difference is total shock, followed by the question “But how did you meet? Sometimes when you’re with him and all of his friends, you might feel a little out of place. You learn that people are rude enough to ask questions like, “But why would you date someone younger than you?
Any girl who has dated a younger guy knows that other people tend to make this situation more awkward than it should be. ” Oh, I don’t know, I was trolling the local middle school and put a spell on him. ” Because I want to, and because I’m not judgmental. You realize that there’s a big double standard – most people won’t blink an eye about an older guy dating a slightly younger girl, but if it’s the other way around, watch out.
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
