If you've come for the Cougar Growls Tour and to learn how to be a cougar, you've come to the right place. Read further.
If you've come to read my Saturday Snippet, click here. But either come back or read this first. Don't miss out on the fun. :)
Are you tired of men your age and older who have let themselves go? Who complain about their aches and pains? Who expect to be coddled? Who are married to the TV?
Meanwhile, there’s a wealth of beautiful younger men orbiting around you who are so buff they make your panties wet? They work out at the gym. They participate in fun activities. They’re on the go, living life…just like you are.
Obviously the younger, active men are much better mates than the couch potato.
Why not go for one? You deserve them.
Here's some guidelines to help you attract younger men.
1) Be confident. Confidence is the sexiest attribute a person can have. It’s the number one reason younger men like to date older women.
2) Be independent. This is the number two reason younger men like to date older women.
3) Don’t be a drama queen.
4) Be a gorgeous, sophisticated animal. Stay in shape. Go to the gym. Walk an hour a night. Eat well. Take good care of yourself.
5) Put yourself together. Men look at the total package. Wear makeup. Style your hair nicely. Dress nicely. They’re much more likely to look at the sum, not single out your beautiful eyes or nice smile if the rest is frumpy or trashy.
6) Be sexually savvy.
7) Be energetic.
8) Pounce. Be sleek, strong, sexy, and in control. Flirt. Give the younger man confidence to be with you.
9) Don’t give the younger man your daughter’s phone number. Give him yours!
10) Talk a good game. Keep the conversation happy, light, and positive. Many younger men like older women because they aren’t vapid like their younger counterparts. Older women have maturity, grace, and experience. They like themselves. They can hold an interesting conversation.
11) Be fun. If you don’t enjoy being around a couch potato, neither will your younger man. Go line dancing. Play tennis. Ride bicycles. Be active in clubs and community events. Go to the beach.
12) Have no shame. Don’t listen to naysayers. It’s survival of the fittest.
• In a recent survey by the AARP, 34% of older women are dating younger men. This is women age 40 and older dating younger men, usually at least 10 years younger. Also, a recent survey by Cosmo found that 30% of men are willing to date older women.
The subject of cougars and cubs is very trendy. Not only are older women and younger men dating and marrying, there are many romantic stories involving this pairing. If you haven't done so already, please check out our "Cougars and Cubs" erotic romance anthology at Total-E-Bound.com. You won't regret it.
We hope you enjoyed our week long series of Cougar and Cubs articles. We certainly enjoyed writing them and in particular, writing the stories in the anthology.
Be sure to visit my anthology partners' blogs, too, for continuing good posts and stories.

Something to be Thankful For by Imari Jade
A middle-age paranoid manager and a bad boy rocker try to persuade each other that in a relationship age does not matter.
Music manager Julianne Richmond's life gets turned upside down when her musical prodigy Cameron Justice announces that he is in love with her. Normally she would be flattered but she's in her forties and he is just a babe which in her book has the making of a bad love song.
Bad boy rocker Cameron Justice has everything...money, a beautiful mansion, expensive cars, and the lead in an upcoming movie. He is admired by women from all over the world and the envy of men. Spoiled and rotten to a fault, Cameron is used to getting his way. So when he confesses his love to his manager Julianne he naturally thought she would accept.
Unfortunately, Julianne turns him down like a hot potato because he is too young for her and bruises his fragile little rock star ego. On one of his wild tirades Cameron packs up his things and leaves Hollywood.
Spurred by the mass hysteria of Cameron's fans Julianne hops in a car and drives halfway across the country to bring his psychotic butt home. But once she finds him back in the sleeping little mountain town where he was born, dressed in tight-fitting jeans and a plaid shirt she discovers maybe having a sexy young blond mountain man might not be a bad thing.
Excerpt: Scene of The Crime by Ashley Ladd
Chills struck Robyn Cattrall as she stepped onto the grounds of her alma mater. Memories good and bad blindsided her for several moments. She’d done a lot of soul-searching before accepting a post here as history professor.
But the burnished autumn leaves and chill in the air made her feel alive again. They brought the promise of soon-coming winter with its wonderland of glistening snow, something she’d missed living in south Florida for the past couple of decades.
She consoled herself that as a connoisseur of history, she had learned from past mistakes and knew better than to repeat them. Just because she was back at the scene of her first heartbreak didn’t mean she was doomed to repeat it. She’d make sure she didn’t. Forty-four now, she was a lot wiser than she’d been at twenty-two.
Funny, she felt young on a campus surrounded by twenty-year-olds, especially when a horde of students burst into the sunshine and several young studs eyed her appreciatively.
She did her best not to drool over what might be her future students, and tried hard to keep a pleasantly professional smile. But when she came face to face with the ghost of her first love, Phil Williams, her jaw dropped, her eyes widened and her heart stopped. Unabashedly, she stared.
What was he doing here?
Phil’s glance slid over her without a hint of recognition, and he passed by without a falter in his step.
She hated herself, but she turned and stared at his retreating back as the sea of people parted around her, then swallowed him. How could he not turn to look at her? How could he forget? How could he look so damned good?
She gulped and licked her lips. When someone bumped her, she jolted awake. Embarrassed, she checked her campus map and hurried to her office.
