50
An older woman (usually 30+) who is on the prowl for younger men usually in bars, restaurants, night clubs, or on the beach. She is always financially secure and thus isn't looking for an older man to provide for her. She may be single, married, divorced, with children, or without. No circumstance can stop her from going after her prey (young HOT and SEXY men) usually between 18 and 29. Any older just isn't her thing.

The term derived from the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles California. Because it is the hills where wildlife live such as cougars, deer, etc... Much like a cougar, the rich woman living in the Hollywood hills comes down the mountain to prey on young men. The younger guys usually struggling actors/waiters, starving musicians, starving students, or just starving are eager to get their drinks paid for by these ladies. They also hope these ladies will invite them back to their pad for some fun in their beautiful rich homes.

Since the term started to catch on and expand across the states the definition has been changed many times over.
However, the basic character is the same. Financially secure women over 30 years old who like younger men to marry, sleep with, or just have around for eye candy.
A single rich Cougar woman from the Hollywood Hills comes down for some fun night club time with a couple of her friends and end up taking some unemployed guys back to their house for fun.

A cougar can be a 60 year old sexy woman who has focused solely on raising her child and on her career then meets an undeniably handsome, intelligent, sexy man in his late 30s who knows how to make her feel like a million dollars. She is financially stable, emotionally independent, and ready for his slightest pounce. She wants him to be in control and to make the first move every time. He knows how to tear down the walls she has built up and knows how to deal with the flood that follows. This type of cougar wants a man who thrives on challenges and doesn't mind taking risks.

In plain English: Any prime and mature woman seeking or prowling for younger men.

The term Cougar was coined to any woman seeking a youger man. Like the animal of the same name, they constantly hunt for fresh meat they can sink their teeth into. Cougars tend to seek energetic guys that are mostly vulnerable.

Many guys would have wished that their cougar counterparts would have baby sat them so they could have lost their virginities at a way younger age, without the fear of mommy or daddy knowing it.

One prime example of a cougar is Mary-Kaye Letourneau.

The real definition of cougar comes from the american muscle car also known as the ´67 Ford Cougar, one of the best known cars to be lended or bought for being such a popular classic even after being used for a great ammount of mileage, that is why it can also be exemplified by "riding an old classic" just as a great looking 40 year old woman, which may have been also a classic or a beauty back in the day, being used once again, even with the mileage and a couple of bumps and scratches is a hell of a smooth ride!!!

56
A divorced woman who is going through menopause. She was the town slut in youth, had an abortion before she was married, and uses sex to advance in a career instead of hard, honest work. She enjoys going after men that are the age her aborted child would have been if it was still alive. She uses girlfriends that are more attractive then herself as lures for younger men, because they would not touch her with a ten foot pole. She cares little to nothing about the psychological affects of her actions will have on her sons.

She is constantly making and loosing friends who drop out of sight when they figure out the type of person she is. Her male friends rarely tell her the truth and are losers in business.

Former girlfriend:
No, I don't hang out with that cougar anymore, especially after her son, who is young enough to be my child, made a pass at me.

Yes, she laughed at the information for hours in private and made up a story about her son allegedly enlisting in the army, thinking that made up for her bad parenting and his actions.
