Celebrities and the internet are making it easier and more acceptable for women to date younger men. Pictured: a cougar with her cub, not a date.

It is perhaps the least surprising dating statistic ever: one in three middle-aged women want a boy toy, according to a survey by UK dating site Parship.com.

No, I am surprised. Why isn’t that statistic higher?

But apparently the trend of dating younger men is a revelation for many women, and a lot more mainstream than just five years ago, when only eight percent of women said they were interested in dating a younger man.

How times have changed.

Celebrity “cougar” relationships — such as Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher– and the internet and making it easier and for older women to date a younger man, according to Dr Victoria Lukats, psychiatrist and Parship’s dating expert.

Spinning it nicely, Dr. Lukatst said, “Internet dating also encourages people to focus on what’s really important in a relationship and for many women, their priority becomes finding a partner with whom they are compatible, irrespective of age.”

  1. Greetings from Sweden. This is a nice blog. Does anyone have any advice on staying out of the friend zone with women? Honestly I’m sick of girls telling me they just want to be friends. Maybe I’m being too nice?
