However, as time has progressed and dating cougars has become more popular, it has become more apparent that the basis of this perspective is simply non-existent or not true.

Older women have successfully dated younger men for hundreds of years and many believe this is actually a better balance of age for a healthy relationship.

Over the subsequent years Toyboy Warehouse has continued to be the UK's largest cougar dating agency specifically for older women and younger men.

Younger men try harder than men my own age or older, they understand this is necessary to keep a woman who knows what they’re talking about - like me.“ - Sharon, 56, Manchester.

Many women who have never dated a younger man before say the same thing: “I don’t see why someone several years younger than me would find me attractive: he could get someone his own age.” They have obviously never logged into Toyboy Warehouse!

I’d never dated anyone younger before I stumbled across Toyboy Warehouse.

It has genuinely opened my eyes to a whole new world.

Soon after the site launched the word began to spread..wildfire.

The slightly risqué nature of Toyboy Warehouse became the centre point of a cougar dating media frenzy and new members signed up in droves.

Toyboy Warehouse is the UK’s largest dating site specifically focused on matching gorgeous older women and charming younger men who are looking for love, lust and romance.

Established in 2006, Toyboy Warehouse is the original Toyboy & cougar dating site and has remained the UK’s largest and leading site of its kind.

Since the beginning, Toyboy Warehouse has focused on creating a space free from all existing social connotations about age-gap relationships, allowing fun of all kinds, and facilitating users to build a genuine connection with one another.
