Cougars are women in their 40s (or later) who date much younger men, usually with a ten-year age difference or more. Pop culture portrays the cougar as opportunistic and hopelessly desperate. Still, actual cougars, they believe, are strong, successful, unmarried women over the age of 40 who are tired of unfulfilling and narrow-minded men their age and prefer younger, more energetic, and daring men.
The word cougar is claimed to have started in Western Canada and first emerged in writing on the Canadian dating website. According to a source, it began in Vancouver, British Columbia, as a lay-down for older ladies who wanted to go to nightclubs and go back with whoever was there at the end of the night. Though, like many other formerly disparaging phrases, there has been a growing attempt in recent years to “reclaim” the name. Even in an attempt to find the best cougar dating sites, usually, young guys assume an active older woman looking for fun.
