The rapid advancement of women up the money ranks has a lot of men worried.
Economic equality means women no longer have to relinquish their newfound status in order to fit into society’s boxed sexual roles.
The emerging class of financially secure women is middle aged and they invest a great deal of time and effort chasing sexual pleasure.
We call them cougars. Their predatory instincts are the motivating factors behind toy boys who present themselves with amazing ease. Young men who have been boxed out of peer dating by older and richer men have since started playing by the same rules.
Love for money is blind. Therefore, women who thought they were past their prime suddenly find themselves pursued by boys who should be running after their daughters.

Young men are now looking for women who can stand out as breadwinners. Previously, marrying rich was a fashionable aspiration for women, while marrying perfect was the male equivalent.
Roles have been reversed. But the more things change, the more they remain the same. Cougars are merely the sugar-mummies of yesteryears and they thrive in economic imbalanced societies like ours.
It is a materialistic world and rich is always sexy.
