Reviews for Cougar
asnjoe24 chapter 5 . 1/16
A very well-written story which seems to highlight some of the very issues that couples like this do tend to face when it comes to how they feel about each other. Having experienced the male side of this kind of situation, I think this story well emphasizes that these issues shouldn't be allowed to hinder and confound a woman's feelings in a way that prevents romance from blossoming. Like Jeff, I fell in love with the woman I became involved with (who at times playfully referred to herself as a "cougar" in my presence) simply because of who she was, and not because of her age - that number made no difference to me at all. I found her beautiful in every way imaginable, and I absolutely enjoyed being with her - that's all that truly mattered to me. So stories with outcomes like this don't have be pure fiction.

The narrative in this story flows quite smoothly, and the descriptions carry enough detail to make for good imagery. Very nicely done.

The beginning of this story made me laugh at how Beth became irritated enough to write such a note. Sometimes we tend to limit ourselves due to how we believe society will perceive us or to an idea that we get in our heads. Like Beth, we all have doubts and we all tend to make assumptions of things that aren’t. And like Beth, overthinking things and not wanting to take a chance because of thoughts that things won’t work out or that differences in age and time and style and likes would be too much is way common. If we don’t take a chance, we’ll never know and it is super unfair that if the roles were switched, not many would bat an eye (if Beth was younger and Jeff was the older one) being that somehow, that’s the new “norm”. So happy that although things started abit awkward between Beth and Jeff, she took a chance and Jeff was there for her and with her obviously. More people (not just women) shouldn’t be worried of the what ifs and the labels that society places and just enjoy and be happy
