Love knows no age limit.
Maybe you and your girlfriend are young and in love. Maybe you and your polyamorous partners are all pushing sixty. Maybe you’re one of the growing number of lesbians entering into “cougar” relationships.
If you’ve ever watched Cougar Town or heard someone marvel at an older woman dating a younger man, then you know that a cougar is a woman who partners with someone ten years her junior.
This isn’t a typical sugar daddy/sugar mama situation – the younger partner doesn’t expect gifts, and the older partner is genuinely looking for love. In other words, these relationships are exactly like any other relationship, except that one partner is a more mature.
The new website Lesbian Cougar Dating caters to lesbians looking for a May-December romance. This site is for older women who “enjoy being in the company of lesbian cubs who are willing to experiment and let go,” and for younger women who are “attracted to lesbian cougar women who are poised, experienced, independent and assertive.”
There is a glamor to dating an older woman. She ostensibly has her life together. She knows what she wants. She’s sexually experienced. And she’s way past drama. While young adult relationships are often rocked by the uncertainties of entry-level employment, school, economic instability and identity crises, relationships with older women feel more stable.The downside? People may question your relationship and assume the cougar is your sugar mama.

So how do you get started? It’s free to set up a profile, although you do have to apply – the site describes itself as an “exclusive community” on the forefront of “this new lesbian dating phenomenon, where fantasy can become reality.”
There is an emphasis on fantasy. This website envisions a world in which “the taboo of age-gap romance does not exist.” A world where people are free to love without judgment.
The site is relatively new so the community is not overwhelming. Instead of being inundated with potential matches like Tinder, you’ll choose from a carefully curated selection of women both mature and young.
Your next dating adventure starts here.
