Is it awfully "cougarish " that I'm a 31 year old dating a 23 year old?

I'm seeing this guy for fun and not as a relationship level.

  • I don't think 8 years is enough difference to be a cougar and I think 31 is too young to be a cougar. If I was asked to set "rules" for what constitutes a cougar I would probably say that the woman has to be at least 40 and the guy at least 15 years younger than her.

    I dated two different women that were more than 5 years older than I was when I was in my 20s and it really just felt like a typical relationship and I wasn't really aware of the age difference. I think the age difference has to be obvious in order for it to be "cougarish" and I don't think that 31 to 23 is.

  • Does he know that you have no serious intentions towards him?

  • those 2 options go hand in hand... yes, it's cougar-ish (just like if roles reversed would be sugar daddy-ish), but that doesn't really matter: it's also fine.

  • Not quite. I think the age difference would need to be bigger to call you a cougar. You'd need to be older. Getting close but not quite there yet.

  • As long as you don't string him along and are open about intentions, rock on

  • As long as both of you know it is for fun it is fine. You are both legally consenting adults. So have fun.

  • 31/2=15.5. 15.5+7=22.5. He's 23. You are fine.
