The Older Woman, Younger Man Cartoon

A new love affair after a breakup is like opening a bottle of vintage wine.

Breakups can be the worst kind of pain, but don't live in the past. Sometimes a younger man, someone you might not have considered before, because of his age, can get you over the hump -- and introduce you to a new kind of relationship.

Cougars have already laid the path, and pointed out the advantages of older women choosing to date younger men... Why not join them? And I would like to hear about your experiences in the comments!
