Cougar Dating

Today there are more single women in the forty-plus age group than ever before. There are several reasons for this phenomena ranging from a rising divorce rate which reverts many married women back to the single status as well as the fact that more women are putting off marriage until they are professionally established which could well be into their forties. Just like there are various reasons why women are increasingly single over forty, so too they are differentiated by traits and priorities.

In 1986 an article on Newsweek created ripples across American society when it reported that that a single, college-educated 40-year-old woman was more likely to die in a terrorist attack than ever walk down the aisle. While such a sweeping statement may seem outdated today, other realities like higher life expectancy of women vis-à-vis men and comparatively fewer number of single men in the forty-plus age group remain, all of which contribute to the notion that older women find it increasingly difficult to get a life partner.
