Online dating couger
A 2010 British psychological study published in Evolution and Human Behavior asserted that men and women, in general, continue to follow traditional gender roles when searching for mates, and thus concluded that the posited "cougar phenomenon" does not exist, or more precisely, exists but is rare.
The study found that most men preferred younger, physically attractive women, while most women, of any age, preferred successful, established men their age or older.
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.
I shared one of those funny Facebook photos recently that said, "Madonna is 55, her boyfriend is 22. I had to laugh at the high maintenance comment I heard time and time again from these young men.
Back when I was in my 40s, younger men would write me online all the time and I'd always say, "Are you looking for a mom? " They just felt younger women were too high maintenance for them and had far too much drama in their lives.
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).
The study found very few instances of older women pursuing much younger men and vice versa.
