“I've had more experiences through college and life, that he had not.
That caused a logistical off-balance in our relationship, and resulted in our short-lived relationship,” she said.
But clearly, younger guys have some appeal (we have at least a little faith in Demi Moore), so what’s behind the cougar craze?

While Chelsea was a freshman in college, her boyfriend at the time was a senior in high school.
Chelsea says that dating a younger guy while in high school is much different than dating a younger guy while in college.
With less than 2 years age difference between herself and her recent younger ex-boyfriend, Chelsea Citro, a student at Syracuse University (SU), still considers herself a bit of a cougar.
“A college cougar is a girl who dates a guy who is not in college yet,” Chelsea says.He had no idea what I was going through because he's still in high school.” Emma Post, a junior at Johnson State College, dated a guy 3 years her junior. “I've always had relationships with someone significantly older than me, so it was difficult at first to adjust to the age difference,” Emma said.Emma says she didn’t notice the age difference until it came to conversational topics that reflected their 3-year age difference.Celebrities like Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz, Ivana Trump, and Linda Hogan all have had significant others more than 10 years their junior.With age differences sometimes pushing 20, or even 30 years, these couples obviously never learned (or at least, never followed) the “Never date anyone under half your age plus seven” Rule.“Regardless of what age a woman starts indulging her Cougar side, if it's for her, she maintains it throughout her life.” That depends.
