Robinson scenario: older woman seduces younger man to satiate her sexual appetite. No one will deny that an older gal maybe more appreciative of a younger man’s toned abs than her 20-something counterparts, but there is more to the story.Yes, she may actually want you for your personality.You can bet that tomorrow night as she tunes in to the new series of the American comedy, Cougar Town —where "40 is the new 20" — Julia Macmillan will feel smug and irritated in equal measure.As the founder of the internet dating site Macmillan knows this is a trend that's an awful lot bigger than "niche".
To her knowledge, there have been at least one marriage and one baby so far.
To her shock and bemusement, there was a new term to describe what she had been doing most of her life — dating younger men.
With their children now all grown, their randy husbands out there playing ‘sponsors’ to campus girls and caught up in their own indulgences such as business, these aging, bored, rich women are now coming out to play!
"I've always dated younger men, and one of my exes happened to make a snide comment about turning the derelict pub opposite my flat into my very own toyboy warehouse," she says.
Inspired, Macmillan talked to friends, and friends of friends, and recruited 700 members even before the site went live.
