Can Cougar relationships last?


Hi Lucia,

I’ve been dating a guy for 2 months now. He is 25 and I am 42. Everything is great and we are falling for each other. I've heard you say these relationships don't work. Why is that? And if so how long do they usually last? Sunny

Hi Sunny,

I don’t recall ever saying these relationships don’t work. I’d probably be the last person to say that. What I have said is that guys under 25 are generally not good candidates for long term relationships because they are still sowing their wild oats.

It really depends on the maturity level of your guy, what he’s looking for at this point in his life and how strong your connection is.

At 2 months, you’re still in the honeymoon phase. Instead of being concerned about when it will end, just enjoy it and see what happens.
