It depends on how the cougar relationship started.
If it started simply as a means for the cougar to get some casual intimacy, it is less likely to work as far as longevity and substance is concerned.
The goal was never to have a substantive relationship in the first place. The goal was to have sex or get the attention.
Cougars are older women who seek to casually date or have sex with younger men.
Most cougars just want a physical relationship.
A cougar is not typically out there thinking about finding younger men to form meaningful relationships with or get married to.
More than likely, the cougar has already had those relationships in her past.
In essence, she has already been there and done that.
Her normal intent is to find a younger man that she can have sexual fun with.
She is typically not intent on anything more than this.
There are some exceptions.
However, for the most part, a cougar is typically wanting to be sexually gratified.
She finds that younger men are more to her liking.
Younger men are more hungry and energetic in the bedroom.
This is what she is looking for.
She may be so bored with the same old boring sex that she gets from men her age.
She wants that younger man that she can teach and show the ropes.
She wants that younger man who is willing to be adventurous and open minded in the bedroom.
Hence, cougar relationships are not typically built on the normal foundation of attraction and personal interest.
The attraction is certainly there but that is typically where it stops.
If you were to be approached by a cougar, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask her about her intentions.
One of the reasons why cougars have such notoriety is because of their honesty.
They are older women typically in their 30’s and 40’s who have already played the “hard to get” games when they were younger.
They have moved beyond that.
Cougars will typically be very honest about what they want and have no problem being specific.
You should know what this cougar’s intentions are by simply asking her.
She will let you know if all she wants is intimacy and nothing more.
This way, you will have a very good idea of what you are getting into before you move things any further.
A cougar typically has a take charge attitude when it comes to getting what she wants.
It can seem selfish to an extent, but in the end, she just wants to get what she feels she deserves.
Cougars tend to be very good at getting a younger impressionable guy to fall for them.
It can be heartbreaking if you were hoping for a more meaningful relationship when all you ended up having was sexual intimacy.
This is why you should have no qualms asking the cougar what her intentions are.
The sooner you know, the easier it will be for you to decide whether you want to go any further.
A cougar relationship only works when both parties are fully aware of what they are getting themselves into.
The sooner you are aware of what you are both getting yourselves into, the easier it will be for the both of you to interact in a way that compliments that without any confusion.
