I may be a puma...

As sated in the ever reliable Urban Dictionary:
Puma - An attractive woman in her late 20s or early 30s. She is a pre-cougar.

I may have a problem people. I have a thing for guys who are younger than me. I think that makes me a puma. Granted, it only comes to celebrities. I love me some Kris Allen (American Idol Season 8 winner) who is 27 I'm seeing at a show Friday and Harry Styles (of One Direction) who just turned 19 last Friday...OK maybe non-celebrities, too. Like the guy that I randomly met last week who was 23. But his Boston accent could be a big part of the attraction. And the fact that he looked like a younger, more adorable Joey McIntyre. Hello, the cutest New Kid on the Block! And then the 27-year-old from the bar Saturday...

The puma realization and classification all started with this tweet to my blogging besties Claire, Tiffany, and Kathrin:


Then, Christina, also one of my most favorite people ever, joined the conversation. Since she has a thing for Zac Effron I figured she'd understand my love for the young ones. So then this happened:


Man, I'm outnumbered. Can you believe that Harry and Kris?




OK someone has to be with me. Admit it! Don't be ashamed! Who is your cub crush?

For the record I've only dated one year younger than me. So far ;)


Linking up with Shanna
and Helene & Emily.

Um, Kris Allen is SO CUTE! But since I'm 24, I guess it doesn't really help you much! I saw him a few years ago shortly after he won AI and he was just as cute in person. Got his autograph, woot woot! ;)

If it makes you feel any better my ex -- only guy I've dated in the last six years (what's wrong with me??) is about 10 months younger than I am. Now it's not that big of a deal, but when we were in high school he was junior and I was a senior, so I definitely felt like a cradle robber!

Also, Harry is hot. He reminds of a young Adam Brody aka my ultimate all-time celebrity crush.

Christina said...

Hahahah! Love this! Especially your very last line!!! I don't get Harry at all. He's just too pretty. Tell me about the 27-year old from the bar!

You find the Boston accent attractive? Ugh! I hear ya w/ the younger guy thing - Hunter Hayes!? Cutie and love his music. Kris Allen is adorable too!

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

You realize this is evidence for when you get arrested, right? RIGHT?

Claire Kiefer said...

LOL to Tiffany's comment!!!!!!!!

I had no idea who Harry was or what he looked like till this post . . . Leeann, YOU CRAZY! He looks like he's 12! Those are some hilarious gifs, though. ;)

ENRIQUE!! :)

Deidre said...

Harry creeps me out. Kris Allen is cute - but I'm also 27.

Audrey Allure said...

Kris Allen is hot, but Harry Styles, eh for me haha. And Zac Efron is a stunner, but then again Kris + Zac are both older than me and right now I'm liking older guys :)

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Do not worry! Let's just say, Puma or Cougar apparently it's the new thing. ;) Just saying. I'm kinda in the same boat.

Erin said...

Kris Allen is freaking adorable lol! And I'm def on the Zac Effron fan club too ;)

Jamie K. said...

How funny- I've met Kris Allen and know his wife! :) I went to college with his wife and one of my best friends "friends" lives with Kris when he is out in LA! Small world- he is really nice in person to help your crush ;)

Meghan said...

Hahahahaha! I love this post! And woohoo, is Zac Effron a cutie!

Because of Jackie said...

My cub crush is Robert Pattinson, who was born 10 years after me and is probably NOT looking at a mom of two in her 30's....right? Okay fine. Damn it.

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

ummm no..one direction...NOOO, just NOOO!!! LOL to Tiffany's comment!! I can't think of younger celebs I like...how old is Ryan Gosling?

Beth W said...

And here I thought I pioneered that term! In 2010, I was 29 years old, dating a 20 year old. When people called me a cougar, I said I was too young to be a cougar- more like a puma (although, technically, puma IS a cougar IS a mountain lion, etc).

Let me tell you, dating a younger man can be great for the self esteem and the stamina. But there comes a moment when they say something and you feel really, really ancient. Like asking you who the hell Led Zeppelin is while you're rocking out to "Cashmere".

Miranda said...

not a fan of One Direction or Harry but I have a crush on Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) it's okay now but when he was 17 i was 22 so it was a little creepy lol

Mree said...

AHHAHA! I think Harry is adorable!! My younger celeb crush is Max Irons!! Love him!!

Leeann, I am now gonna refer to you as Miss Puma! LOL! This is freaking hilarious! I am the opposite. I have always been attracted to older guys. All my boyfriends and crushes have been older than me. I say whatever ever gets ya going...go for it. wink-wink!

Janna Renee said...

Oh geeze! This is too funny. You make a hot Puma!!

Meg {henninglove} said...

haha i love this post leeann. you are too funny! don't be a puma and if you need any persuasion not to be a cougar, watch that TLC show about cougars and their extreme and i mean extreme difference in dating ages

Miss Angie said...

Ok, so I really don't know much about any of them.. but as per your pictures the one on top looks 12...

However, mr bottom picture-hot as can be. Goodness... Yeah I'd go cougar for him too.

still_ill83 said...

LOL! Love it! I have to admit I had a crush on a guy at school who was younger than me! I was embarrassed :O I'm glad to see I'm not alone ;)

Chris said...

When you're as old as I am everyone is younger than you so there are a ton of good looking hollywood guys, but I would have to say my favorite is Zac Efron... plus he dated Vanessa Hudgens who is half Filipino which means he's into my people and I could possibly have a better chance with him. See... you have to think these through.

Kacie said...

Haha! This is too funny! I have Bieber Fever so maybe I'm a puma too. lol. Although, my husband is 4 years older than me so that might cancel things out. I'm your newest follower :) I'd love for you to follow my blog too. xo

Leesh said...

I'm a like the biggest cougar ever and I'm proud of it. I crush on the likes of Bieber and One Direction, along with many others who are much younger than me. It's a good thing I look a lot younger than I actually am.

DO NOT BE ASHAMED, seriously. I tend to like older men but I once had a boyfriend 7 years younger than me and I had the time of my life. It helped that I knew he was no where ready to commit to a serious relationship. We had fun for a few years and that's okay. It's years later and he's still not settled down, go figure. I say go for it! I have tons of cougar crushes, like Ryan Gosling and Ed Westwick (from Gossip Girl.)
