Oftentimes, we use the terms Sugar Mummy and Cougars interchangeably, but are they really the same? What are the differences between a Sugar Mummy and a Cougar?
This article is aimed at clearing the confusion and explaining the difference between a Sugar Mummy and a Cougar.
A Sugar Mummy is an older woman who prefers younger men for relationships.
A Cougar is also an older woman who is in a relationship with a younger man.
As you can see from the two definitions of a Sugar Mummy And a Cougar, both involve older women and younger men.
The differences lie in their different approaches to relationships.
You can simply refer to a Sugar Mummy as a Cougar but you can necessarily refer to a Cougar as a Sugar Mummy. Let me clear you on this quickly to avoid confusing you more.
A Cougar is an older woman generally in her 40+, attractive and does not necessarily have to be wealthy. She is normally well off financially.
She tries to attract attention from young men and seeks out relationships with them. More often than not, she is looking for sexual encounters. Once she has her man, she makes sure that she is the dominant partner.
A Sugar Mummy, on the other hand, is similar to a Cougar but she doesn’t necessarily have to be advanced in age, though that may often be the case.
The difference between a Sugar Mummy and a Cougar is simply the keyword ‘SUGAR‘. It is about being wealthy that the younger boys she is dating.
Sugar Mummies also seek out younger men and want to treat them and spoil them with money and gifts. (This is the mummy part).
Do you still think a Cougar and a Sugar Mummy seem alike? The big difference is how they attract and engage with these young men they seek out.
A cougar has social power, either through attractiveness or interpersonal skill. While she might pay for a meal or drinks, that is only to establish her dominance.
A sugar mummy, on the other hand, pays for everything by default. Sugar mummies might lack the ability to seduce a young man by herself, so she will seek out the ‘sugar bowl’ where she can easily use her wealth to get an attractive young sugar boy.
In reality, it isn’t always this straightforward. Relationships are complicated! A woman might be a little of both, or start out as one but become more like the other.
If you are a sugar boy and you aren’t sure if you are dealing with one or the other – forget about it. Just treat her like a human being.
After that, if you still want to know, then you should be comfortable in your relationship to simply ask!
