Consider yourself warned, should this be a concern or point of interest.You've figured out the easy part—you know what you want. The top pick in this category, and it's easy to tell why even at first glance: the site caters specifically to cougars and cubs (zero sharing databases with other, unrelated dating sites that I could find), there's a huge membership base (1,000,000 ), the search options seem endless, and the price is reasonable (ranging from .33-29.99/month).There’s been an enormous amount of media coverage centred on older women dating younger men over the last decade.However, what’s actually going on underneath the pop-style commentary and tabloid tales of ‘cougars’ and their ‘cubs’?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.
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.
More » The cheapest and priciest option listed here (-40/month with credits; free for cougars), Cougar Life also sports the most confusing payment options, similar to Lavalife.
In a nutshell, you buy a month-long membership and then will need additional credits to do anything of use on the site.
More » While go Cougar looks different (smart, sleek and fun), they also share a database with Hot or Not, which includes other cougar dating sites like Ageless Love—making it a bit tricky for me to review in this category. Because Hot or Not is a completely different kind of site, more geared towards people wanting a quick interaction, instead of specifically looking for someone to date.
How does Hot or Not know someone's a cougar or cub? Some other things to note: zero live chat options, no way to stop people from reviewing your profile, all profiles get a manual review before being added, and prices ranging from .23-9.99/month.
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.
