57
A mature woman old enough to be the mother of a high schooler, typically age 40 and older that like the company of a younger man, single or divorced, a woman who prefers to hunt rather than be hunted. Cougars are sick of guys whose sole peak of happiness is a remote and someone to wait on him. Contrary to popular belief, cougars have evolved. They are still hot enough to get a younger man and younger men are always on the prowl for cougars so younger women, you should be worried. Cougars are attractive, who know what they want and aren't afraid to go after it. They are hot, classy, groomed to perfection. They seek younger men, and don't have to sneak up and attack...they know their younger mates are eager to get an experienced woman. Being a cougar is a positive thing.
That cougar is hot!

An insult to a female that is at least 10 years older than you; an older attractive female that takes care of herself, eats right, exercises and is financially capable of having a great life without your sorry ass. As a general rule, guys don't want anything more from a cougar than to have sex with her. Pretty equal to a MILF.
That chick is a cougar. I would love to hit that!

An older woman (35+) who preys upon young sexual toys. While most cougars prefer their victims under 25 years of age, some rare types will stalk those as old as ten years their junior. Cougars frequently wear push-up bras and glitter, prowling about karaoke bars and jello wrestling pits for firm, youthful flesh. Not uncommonly, a real cougar would say they aren't one. That way their target would be falsely reassured before the fatal pounce.
"Ellen is a cougar. She is flat-out lying, and she is looking to hurt us, store our bodies up some tree and quietly and contentedly much on our carcasses at her leisure."

An older woman, usually with abnormally large breasts and a very small waist looking to get some action from a defenseless young male. Cougars usually range from the ages of 35-55 and can be vicious creatures out to end puppy love relationships. Cougars dwell in small, dark, high class bars in downtown settings where they can quickly sneak up on their prey, rendering them defenseless. The night usually ends in waking up next to the cougar after a night of sexual escapades to her child getting ready for school. Beware of cougars, beware.

A cougar cannot be defined simply, as one cannot consciously seek out a cougar. One can only prepare him/herself to confirm a positive cougar sighting by familiarizing themselves with the common signs/traits of a cougar. Many mistakenly fall back on their general knowledge of cougars to incorrectly confirm and report a cougar encounter. Those who are commonly sighted in public and misidentified are usually not actual cougars but are their more familiar and far less cunning cousin- the puma. Cougars are always on the prowl for a new mate and are seasoned in their tactics to not be easily identified, as they served many years as a bobcat gaining experience prior to attaining their seasoned cougar status. If you feel the presence of a cougar on the prowl you may instinctively experience a chill down your spine. It is advisable to shy away and avoid falling prey to the attack. When drinking it is good prevention to have a wingman that honors the Sheppard’s rule to not let you leave the herd or the watering hole without their approval.

Three common flaws in the cougar’s camouflage:

1. She knows a lot of your acquaintances and they tend to have positive initial individual reactions to seeing her, but quickly shy away when they realize they are in the herd. (Cougars are known to prey upon many animals in the same herd that generally enjoy the experience but fear publicly admitting the encounter, as falling prey to a cougar scars the reputation.)

2. Despite her ability to fit in by wearing the current fashion, during conversation about current popular music or TV culture she may make references of many retro or historical topics that you may or may not have some basic knowledge of. (Cougars are generally fifteen or more years older than they appear in a dimly lit bar or club and generally prey upon victims substantially younger than they are.)

3. Cougars tend to have trophy toys to entice their prey such as expensive sports cars, hot tubs, expensive homes, etc. which are products of their years of success in their careers. (These luxuries are not easily afforded during the more youthful period that preceded becoming a cougar.)

Bear in mind, once a cougar on the prowl has cornered you, separated you from the herd and pounced, you too will likely not publicly admit to the encounter.

I am reeling. I am 29 years 4 months old and I just got called a cougar for the first time! I have NEVER dated a man younger than me in my entire life. I simply, moved 2,000 miles away to a new town for a new job due to the horrible economy...And given it is that I have no friends, I went to the bar by myself to have a few drinks. I am the type to talk to anybody, and the people next to me at the bar happened to be a group of 22 and 23 year old men. I was friendly to them and enjoyed a few hours of good conversation, but I made NO advances. The men made advances on me! I turned them down because I am not interested in dating a younger man. And the young fellow labled me a Cougar on his frickin Twitter Page. I am floored.
I must be a new example as I was labled a Cougar. Im 29, athletic, hot, classically dressed, friendly, confident. But I'm not at all rich. I have a very successful career but am reeling in debt from my 7 years spent gaining higher education and my year of unemployment. So I do not appreciate being looked at as a sugar mama.
