To be honest, every time I title a post “do you find this ad offensive” I feel like the subtext is “good, eye-catching work, copywriters!”
But I do feel like probably there’s a way to advertise a dating site for men who like older women without using the word “motherfucker”. Frankly, I always kind of cringe at the term cougar, too, because, well, just date who you want to date. Just date people who you feel like you match up well with.There’s nothing inherently weird about wanting to date people who are older and more experienced. It’s just stuff like this that makes it seem weird.
We’re not sure what’s scarier, the new billboard above Sunset Boulevard that declares “CougarLife.com for MOTHER F***ERS” or the fact that there is actually a site for such classy MILF-chasers and granny-philes.
Okay, they’re not all grandmothers. The recommended starting age for a cougar-dating search on the site is 35.
You know, maybe it’s just a product of living in New York, but 35 still seems very young. I can’t quite wrap my head around the idea of men wanting to date 35 year olds being “motherfuckers” but, well, maybe things are different in LA.
