First of all, define "cat lady. It is my personal belief that most female cat owners below the age of 40 fall into the "not a cat girl, not yet a cat lady" category. Cat ladies mostly look like … normal ladies. You know. Like regular women.

Cat People: Why Are Millennials So Afraid of Sex? – Tablet Magazine
By the standards of true global celebrity, there is only so far a piece of fiction can go; as David Foster Wallace used to say, the most famous writer in the world is about as famous as a local TV weatherman. Still, what happened with Cat Person remains singular to the extent that, for what seemed like the first time in publishing history, it slammed together two alien worlds, social media and serious fiction, in a way that stretched the boundaries of literary fame. The story of Margot, 20, and Robert, 34, and their disastrous short-lived relationship was written a few months before the MeToo movement took off, and by the time it came out its themes — the power imbalance between older men and younger women; the dynamics of coercion; the hideous chess game of early courtship, with its currents of self-delusion and bad, bad sex — chimed with what felt like the only conversation in town. In the weeks after Cat Person was published, it was shared millions of times, inspired spoof Twitter accounts and, after being widely mistaken for memoir, was prosecuted as part of a man-hating liberal agenda.

A short story about dating has gone viral - and the varied reactions from men and women are just as revealing as the story itself. The story - called Cat Person - follows the courtship of a young year-old woman, Margot, and a year-old man named Robert, as they try to form a relationship of some sort built on nothing more than a shared interest in movies, art, jokes, and cats - some of the most poignant sections highlight experiences that are relatable to women when it comes to modern dating. At times during the story, Margot is unsettled by Robert's apparently manipulative behaviour, his rough and distant manner in bed, their age difference, and his attitude to women.
Margot met Robert on a Wednesday night toward the end of her fall semester. She was working behind the concession stand at the artsy movie theatre downtown when he came in and bought a large popcorn and a box of Red Vines. He was tall, which she liked, and she could see the edge of a tattoo peeking out from beneath the rolled-up sleeve of his shirt. But he was on the heavy side, his beard was a little too long, and his shoulders slumped forward slightly, as though he were protecting something.
