With a cost ranging from .98-29.95/month, there's little here that I found particularly engaging or special to make it noteworthy.More » There's live chat, more than a million members, a beautiful interface, "naughty" mode, and lots of search options, so why does Be Cougar rank lower on this list?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). 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.Maybe you're a younger guy who wants to learn from a more experienced woman, or who just finds older gals more attractive than his same-age counterparts.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.
Still, it's the best option out there for those with limited budgets.
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.
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.
