Why men prefer the older woman

01 October 2014, 18:11 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Women like hating, and younger women like picking on older women. I will not be too surprised if the people picking on the likes of Lillian Muli, Julie Gichuru, and Carol Mutoko are women and younger women at that.  They are women who are aging well, they have been on our televisions for a long time and they still look the same. They eat well, go to the gym, work out and stay fit. Yet here you are at home, being a couch potato eating burgers and fries getting a large belly with the, ‘ I love who I am’  mentality. Thing is, both the younger and older guys hunger for them and wish they could be with them, not the on screen wants alone, but out here too guys if given the chance would love to be with the older woman.


She does not play mind games

In the movie Blue Jasmine, the main lead is older but what she loves is to use old school dating gimmicks. She has met a new guy and thus awaits his call. She spends the day waiting for him to do so, then when he rings, she stands by it, lets it ring three times and on the fourth ring is when she decides to pick up. Such stupid games, or what texts to reply, which dates to show up for. Cougars know what they want and their life is so well set up, they do not have time for such stupidity and mind games. Men respect that. Some of the things women do make them look like fools. He knows what you are doing because he knows you and he knows your phone is always attached to you when he sees you. How do you aim to pass this one off?

They know what they want

What do you want to eat?  I do not know. Where should we go? I do not know. What would you like to do? I do not know. With the amount of time you spend talking it seems your thinking capacity is challenged. Cougars know what works for them and what does not. If caught off-guard it’s okay to be a little bit unawares, but completely dimwitted loses its allure. The guy will just want to get away from the experience.

Sexy and confident

She is not still trying to figure out what to wear, because her style is figured out. She does not need the man’s assurance or his opinion on whether she looks fat. Why did you buy the dress if you were later going to ask some poor guy to vet it then get angry when he does with an opinion you do not like. Younger women need a lot of work when it comes to confidence because some are out there on the street looking like their entire being is a confused state.


I do not see mature women fighting in clubs and splashing alcohol all over. Getting into cat fights over a man or some other nitty- gritty. Creating public scenes such as scolding the guy in public and crying all over. They went through all that in their teens and stepped through that threshold. They have a rational and realistic approach to doing things.


Their life is sorted out and they have a life of their own. Clinginess, expecting financial support from a guy or tailing him to keep track of his goings are just some of the things cougars have no time for. It spells being secure in herself.
