CougarLife Review

Older women known as cougars that are divorced, a single parent or simply single are hooking up with men much younger than them on CougarLife. Younger guys (frequently called Cubs) that want to experience dating a Cougar or prefer dating older women will have plenty of dating options at CougarLife. Users are greeted with a photo of a woman that’s holding a pie while standing at the door appearing innocent but the off-the-shoulder shirt and the mischievous gleam in her eye as she looks at a potential Cub says otherwise. If you are a Cougar or a Cub wanting to meet others for friendship, casual dating or a long-term relationship, CougarLife is the ideal site for you.

How it works

To join this energetic community of Cougars and Cubs, you will need an enticing profile that will draw attention. The first step is to upload a photo to your profile. Post a photo of your face, a full body shot as well as a few snapshots of you during a fun activity or pastime so the user gets to see what you look like as well as the things you enjoy doing.

Next you need to create a profile tagline so think of a personal strength and incorporate that into your first sentence. The next section is an opportunity to share basic details and a few interesting facts about you. Write unique facts that make you different from other users so your profile doesn’t just blend in with other others. You can also describe the person you want to meet on CougarLife along with the type of relationship that you want. Be specific so users know exactly what you are looking for. You also have an opportunity to answer various questions so others can learn more about you such as “What is your idea of a sexy rendezvous? What is your favorite roleplay fantasy? What three activities outside of the bedroom give you the most pleasure and why?”

Once you have completed the questions you want to answer, you can search for your perfect match. There is a quick search feature that lets you select filters like age range, location and available to date tonight. Or you can also do an advanced search with filters such as height, hair color, eye color and body type. You can sort your search results by age, distance, newest, popularity or recently online. With just a basic membership, you can view profile information as well as photo galleries.

Another way to check out profiles is the Browse carousel feature that shows numerous users and you decide whether you are “Interested” or “Not Interested”. You can also send a virtual flirt or a personal message and attach a virtual gift like a kiss, breakfast in bed or chocolate dipped strawberry. Credits must be purchased to send virtual gifts.


When you upgrade to a Premium membership, you will receive credits plus your profile will be highlighted and moved to the top of search results. You will also be notified when a new user joins and you will instantly be recommended to that user. You will also have 6-hour access to new users so you get to meet them before basic membership users. If you choose not to subscribe, you can purchase a Premium Credit package for $10 and receive 100 credits or an Elite credit package for $16 and receive 200 credits so you can still send virtual gifts.

The Good…

Unlike other online dating sites, you have full access to search features on a basic membership

Cougars are able to send and receive unlimited e-mail messages

The Bad…

After thoroughly navigating the site as a Cougar, I couldn’t locate an Upgrade option

And The Ugly

Profiles are not verified on CougarLife so anyone could make a fake profile using a fake photo
