A cougar cannot be defined in a simple definition. One cannot consciously seek out a cougar. One can only prepare himself/herself for confirming the positive identity of a cougar by familiarizing himself/herself with the common signs/traits of the cougar. Once one instinctively feels the potential presence of a cougar on the prowl, he/she can fall back on what he/she knows about cougars in general to positively confirm and report a cougar sighting.

Here are the most common signs/traits that your instincts may have accurately identified a cougar nearby:
1. A single woman over 30 appears to be at least 51 months older than she is biologically.
2. A single woman over 30 is talking to your 25 year-old ass about tunes on "Pyromania" and you're able to keep the conversation rolling with your knowledge of "The Vault" and interest in her white high-tops.
3. A single woman over 30 is overheard talking to a group of college men about how she used to date a college guy when she was in 7th grade because the color of his Camaro was the same as her back pocket comb.

So, how does one warn/notify a buddy that he may be talking with a cougar? Whisper into his ear, "Easy cougar, you're doin' fine." (See Top Gun)

"Geez, Connor, that gal you were just talking to is only 31 but she looks 43...and look at those high-tops...and that comb!"

"Yeah, I know Dwayne, and she's still single!"

"Connor, she could be cougar."

"Yes Dwayne, yes she is."

Definitely a financially successful, goal oriented adult woman that knows exactly what she wants and won't settle for less. Young men beware of her physical description: tall, blonde, knock out figure, well dressed and sporting a car you won't be able to afford!!
And if I'm a cougar than that makes my mature male counterpart what???
The modern cougar is any self respecting woman over the age of 35.

The Opposite of a Maverick.
Someone who wants to be excepted, but just can't due to way too much fail.
In the movie Top Gun, Cougar is the oppostie of Maverick, because he is so horribly bad.

She is a cougar
by Johnny Dagger July 16, 2010
an older woman, dressed as a younger woman, usually with overprocessed hair and skin, who likes to seek out and conquer younger men. She can quite frequently be found in professional settings though her habitat of choice tends to be the bar.
The cougar ran her pink tipped nail across the neckline of her lycra catsuit as she regarded her new assistant.
