Although the site says it's dedicated to cougar dating, Older Woman Dating does partially share in the database of members at Successful Match.
More » As the only 100% free cougar dating site that I could find with enough members (800,000 ) for a potential match, Cougared got some major bonus points right off the bat.
For free, Match allows users to create an account, fill out a profile, upload photos, browse singles, and communicate, and the site sees more than 13.5 million visitors a month, so your flirting options are practically endless.
No longer is it considered sad or weird to say you first met your partner digitally, a shift to the mainstream largely down to the success of one app: Tinder.
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).
More » Slightly more expensive than some other sites on this list (.55-29.95/month; free for cougars), and missing any sort of live-time chat options, this site does boast an eye-catching, slick layout with many fun features.
There are ample members to choose from (1,000,000 ) from mostly Canada, the US and the UK, and you can verify your account to prove you're real.
The site is well laid out and modern, and it's likely the most well-known of the cougar dating sites because of its extensive media coverage (yet only has 500,000 members).
While the Inbox is a bit annoying (each message takes up a whole new slot, instead of filtering down and combining them), Cougar Life is where I had the most luck in talking to people, and actually connecting—and really, that's the biggest factor here.
