What is a Cougar?

In the context of dating, a cougar is typically a term used to describe an older woman who is romantically or sexually interested in younger men. The term gained popularity in the early 2000s and has since become more mainstream. Cougars are often portrayed as confident, independent, and experienced individuals who actively seek relationships or casual encounters with younger partners.

For the purposes of the Cougar Crusade, a cougar is a woman over 40 who is a hunter. Her prey is living out her dreams.

She knows that self-care and nurturing her inner child are keys to living a life full of presence and passion. She isn’t constrained by society’s expectations of what a mature woman should be or do. She doesn’t see dating younger men as taboo. She embraces her experience and wisdom as well as the strength that comes from letting go of conventional expectations.

A cougar is discerning, powerful, and free.

Have a look around the site and find the part of the community that best matches your time, budget, interests, and desires. There is something for every cougar out there.

Thank you for being a part of the Cougar Crusade.
