More » Slightly more expensive than some other sites on this list (.55-29.95/month; free for cougars), and missing any sort of live-time chat options, this site does boast an eye-catching, slick layout with many fun features.
There are ample members to choose from (1,000,000 ) from mostly Canada, the US and the UK, and you can verify your account to prove you're real.
The site is well laid out and modern, and it's likely the most well-known of the cougar dating sites because of its extensive media coverage (yet only has 500,000 members).
While the Inbox is a bit annoying (each message takes up a whole new slot, instead of filtering down and combining them), Cougar Life is where I had the most luck in talking to people, and actually connecting—and really, that's the biggest factor here.
Cougar Fling does, however, a much better job of laying out the site and making it easy to use, yet has so few members—most of whom live in the US—that it's barely worth your while to sign up.
We have created a unique matching tool comprised of three key factors that produce like-minded and fruitful connections: Vitality, Openness and Culture.
Now comes the hard part: finding a cougar dating site that works, caters to your needs, is affordable, transparent and has enough members in your area to warrant signing up. Where Date ACougar loses points, however, is their difficult navigation, likely stemming from all the features they do offer.
I found the site cluttered and a bit overwhelming, if fully fleshed out, and had a difficult time actually getting a reply to any of my messages.
Ladies, perhaps you've hit your, er, prime, and want someone who can keep up, or maybe you'd just rather someone with less baggage than many of the men your age.It does look more dated than all of the higher-ranking sites on this list though, and many of the male members seemed way too old to be considered cubs.Still, it's the best option out there for those with limited budgets.The site also feels cluttered with way too much information (if pretty to look at) and has singles as well as couples/swingers listed, likely because their database is (partially) shared with Cupid PLC, a rather large dating site conglomerate.More » There are a few similarities between higher-ranked Date ACougar and Cougar Fling: the pricing (.33-29.99/month), and oodles of search features, for starters.More » Age Match caters to all sorts of age gap relationships, whether it's older men courting younger women, or older women looking for younger men.With this in mind, you'll find more people here than many niche dating sites, in part because their site shares a database with a plethora of other niche dating sites, with Successful Match acting as the umbrella company (like Older Woman Dating listed above, however, the full database is shared with Age Match).Regardless of your reasoning—there's zero judgment here—you're trying to meet someone for a May-December romance.Although frankly, most people seeking dating sites in this category usually want something along the lines of casual dating, NSA, or FWB.Although the site says it's dedicated to cougar dating, Older Woman Dating does partially share in the database of members at Successful Match.More » As the only 100% free cougar dating site that I could find with enough members (800,000 ) for a potential match, Cougared got some major bonus points right off the bat.
