Houston Ranked #2 For Cities With The Most Cougars

Lauren Kelly

The University of Houston Cougars are apparently not the only cougars in town…

According to a new study from the folks over at the dating app, PlentyOfFish, some new data shows them which US cities have the highest number of older women looking for younger men, and Houston is almost at the very top!

Yeeeahhhhh cougars! lol (ok so I’m not a cougar yet…but I’ve always found myself dating a few years younger than me)

The Chronicle says half of the top 10 towns are in Texas, and “Nationally, 65 percent of single women between the ages of 40 and 60 have admitted to dating a man at least seven years younger than themselves, POF reports. But here in Houston, the share is higher than the national average. Enough to earn Houston the No. 2 spot in POF’s top 10 Cougartown list. What is it that draws older women to younger men? According to responses from more than 500 women surveyed by the dating site, the top reason is that dating younger men is “purely physical and fun,” with 28 percent of women citing this cause. Thirteen percent said younger men have “less baggage,” and another 8 percent said there’s “less pressure to settle down” when dating down in age.”

The top 10 cities for the most cougars are listed below:

10. El Paso

9. Los Angeles

8. Fort Worth

7. Dallas

6. Jacksonville

5. Atlanta

4. Phoenix

3. Las Vegas

2. Houston
