#119 and #130, wouldn't it be interesting if they discovered that OP babysat her husband? That would most certainly be awkward.

Yup. My husband is six years older than me and gets jokes about "robbing the cradle" from his friends, so it's pretty much a guarantee that a bigger age gap will get those jokes too. Laugh it off, OP; not much else you can do about it.

2 - last I heard, cougars are very defensive of their territory.

I don't even know how this is an FML - it's basically the same as, "Today my friend called me a poopy-head after I went to the bathroom." Big friggin deal, get over it!

Depends on your age #104. If you're 16 and he's 18 that's a sizeable difference. If you were 32 and 30 noone would comment. Even 6 years is very little by that time...


Me and my boyfriend are just a year and 2 months apart and I get called cougar all the time. Mostly because he was still in high school when I started dating him and I'm in college. I think the perspective changes the older you get. It's more acceptable to be that 'far apart' when you are older but for example a 14 year old dating a 19 year old is considered wrong because of laws. I think the nickname is thrown around whenever.

There's nothing wrong with being a cougar though. In fact there's a market out there for fine young men that like older women. I already promised myself if I'm still aingle at fourty I will absolutely keep a boy toy around the house!

YDI meaning "you deserve the jokes."

I don't think there's a single thing wrong with what they're doing, but you can't complain when people make obvious jokes. It's just gonna happen.
