About the Book


In this modern era of dating, opportunities abound for older women and younger men to find each other. But those women dating younger men must be proactive about managing the doubt-filled self-talk and the outside commentary that could derail their romance.

Revising Mrs. Robinson offers an examination of the personal and social responses to relationships between older women and younger men. Author Suzanna Mathews explores the term cougar as a cultural phenomenon and considers what draws cougars and cubs together. She also provides advice for managing the unique challenges of an intergenerational relationship. Most of all, Mathews tells middle-aged women how to be honest with themselves and feel empowered to pursue whatever relationship they choose, regardless of age difference, and armed for the cultural critique that often accompanies any nontraditional relationship.

This practical guide seeks to assist women involved with or interested in relationships with younger men, presenting methods for dealing with both external and internal obstacles.
