A woman who, for some unknown reason, is attracted to men she finds out are younger than she is, often significantly so. She looks younger than her age, acts younger than her age, and has the confidence she didn't have when she was younger - which younger men apparently find appealing. She's not always the bottle blond, surgically enhanced woman described in other definitions of the word. She most often has her life in order and has earned her independence. She's probably not had a conventional life and she's ok with that. Many of her friends don't get it and tell her to find some old rich fart to die with.
This is a cougar scenario of the kind described above: The flirtation had gone on for weeks and he finally asked her for her number. She gave it to him knowing he was another young one. When she found out how old he really was, she sighed on the inside. All she could say was, "I'm a bit older than you." He guessed she was about 38 and in her head she said, "Yeah, that's how old I was when I had my daughter who is now 15." Another sigh.

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)

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!!
