For mature women and the men who love them

Cougar Life is a place for men looking to date older women-and for women interested in dating younger men. If online browsing has brought you to Cougar Life, chances are our community has what you're looking for.

The new cougar/cub relationship

At Cougar Life, we're all about the new modern, cougar lifestyle that's definitely not your mother's cougar bar. Today's cougar is fun-loving, smart, knows what she wants-and isn't afraid to go after it.

Everyone can be a cougar, from top-level executives, soccer moms, community leaders, and newly single women who want the fun of a relationship without all the demands and baggage of traditional relationships.

Cougars come in all shapes and sizes-and ages! There is no standard age for cougars and Cougar Life welcomes women in their 30s, 40s, 50s and up. The only requirement is that you're a woman who enjoys dating younger guys.

The younger men who date sexy, older women are affectionately referred to as "cubs". Sometimes there's as little as a five-year age difference between a cougar and her cub, sometimes it's 20 (or more). It really doesn't matter as long as everyone knows what they're looking for and what they're getting.

The cougar

Cougars bring their experience in life (and relationships), their maturity, their confidence (in and out of the bedroom), and their ability to see the bigger picture. Cougars typically take good care of themselves, from going to the gym and salon, or whipping up a home-cooked meal when the mood strikes. They love to laugh and enjoy life, don't get caught up in the little things, tend to avoid drama, and are independent with their own lives, hobbies, interests, and friends.

The cub

Cubs are full of the energy and optimism that go hand in hand with youth. They're often more open minded than their older counterparts, less judgmental, and are able to see the humor in almost any situation, which is what makes them such a compatible cougar companion.

Find What You're Looking For

A free-spirited 35-year- old woman may have more in common with a twenty-something looking to explore the world than a career-focused man her own age, who may be too time-stressed to take time out for romance and enjoying life.

A single father in his early thirties would most likely have a better time in a relationship with a busy cougar in her forties who understands the demands of parenting, appreciates flexibility in a relationships, and has her own independent, full life.

Compatibility has no age limit

On Cougar Life, age is not important. Our members know, that fulfilling connections happen when both partners see eye to eye on the important things and communicate their needs honestly.

Cougars and cubs on Cougar Life share openly about what they are truly looking for, whether it's a fling, a casual date, or something more long term.
