WHAT THEY SAY: Date a Cougar is a dating site dedicated for singles looking to Date Older Beautiful women. This site is the premier cougar dating site for single guys looking to meet a rich older cougar who likes young guys and sex.
WHAT WE FOUND: Date a Cougar is a fun service to be a member of, so you can search, post your profile and send winks to members you're interested in, for free. This site is for older women (40+) and young men (20+) to meet each other. Your membership begins with a free search, to see of there are any members registered in your area and you can use your own search data to personalize the results. The next step is to begin putting your profile together, headline, zip code and a description of yourself. I don't like that you have to go through these steps for the membership, but it is free and you just might get some winks your want from other members, so complete your profile, don't turn away from the service just yet. Once you complete that page you can choose the type of membership you want, so click on the "3 day free trial" then click on the link way at the left side bottom of the page that says " Click Here to Enter Members Area" and you're in. It's simple, really.
And that is the toughest part of the whole service. From here you have full access for three days and you will have chat requests whenever you log in to the service, there are just so many other members there.
I do like how the member page is set up, it's very easy to navigate and fun to compete your profile. Remember to upload at least one photo of yourself so the cougars (or young men) can see what you look like. A picture is worth a thousand words, so make it a good head and shoulders shot… of course there are some NSFW (Not safe For Work) member photos there, so watch what you watch.
The searches are fast, both the basic search and the advanced search, profiles are easy to read and a lot of information is asked to complete your profile so expect to spend about 20 minutes completing your profile.
The site did seem to log me out a couple of times and sometimes the "Upgrade membership" link didn't work… every strange. (Be sure when you log in to click the "Remember me" check box.) Only one picture from a member's account is available for viewing unless you are a paid member or if you are not logged in or if the member has restricted their photos to premium members only, a nice feature to keep the free members from emailing you then not being around in three days. If this happened to you, click the "Home" button at the top left and start over.
Overall a very nice site with a couple of odd turns to it on the setup side, I hope they get those things I noticed fixed, if they weren't just do to me missing something that I should have done otherwise.
To meet and date a cougar this is one of the best services online. The same goes for Cougars wanting to meet young men. Not so sure about the couples option.
Have some fun, try the service out, it's free for the first three days, no credit card required. Recurring charges may be higher than the initial membership payment, read the fine print at the bottom of the page before you click "join".
