I like this cougar dating site even better...

Hi Guys!

As you know I joined up to my first cougar dating site the other day and had fun looking around and chatting to some guys. I have since found out about another site that is even more popular (meaning more people online to flirt with).

This week I am reviewing the Number 1 cougar dating site, This site is very popular and therefore has loads of members. I was pleasantly surprised how many cougars and cubs were in my area, looking to date. It is always nice to have a choice! Before I even signed up I could see which young men in my area were online. I could only see their photos at this stage, but it was good to see some of the people I could be chatting with soon. It also told me the total number of guys in my area who had signed up. However, once I was online I found many more people who were not far at all from me.
The thing I really liked about this site was that as soon as I had entered my user namer (Dianeontheprowl) I was given a chance to send out a one time icebreaker to the community. You can skip this, but I chose to go ahead and wrote something like "Hi, I'm a sexy cougar woman looking for some casual fun. Any good looking, intelligent men want to chat?" Sure enough I got messages even before I had finished my profile.

I was able to all the features of the site for free.  Set up was pretty standard, just a matter of entering my name, email address and date of birth. After that I just had to enter a brief headline for myself  and a description. This can be brief if you just want to get online, but it pays to take time to write a full description. The more detail you add, the more likely hot cougar women/sexy young cubs are to initiate chat with you. Fill this area in with details about yourself, such as hobbies, likes and dislikes and interesting things about yourself. It is the perfect opportunity to set yourself apart from the rest. You can answer as many or as few questions as you like about yourself, including your looks, personality, habits, what you do for fun etc.

You then click Create Account and that’s it. Your account is created. You will be taken to a billing page which explains membership options. Here you can sign up for a free 3 day trial with all the benefits of full membership, or upgrade straight away to begin chatting with cougar women and arranging your dates and hook ups.

The other option is to click at the bottom of the page where it says members area. A free membership is quite limited, but you can check out cougar and cub profiles in your area and even begin chatting. The site tells you whether someone is online. It also tells you how many miles away they live from you.  I upgraded today, as it was so much better and good value for money. Once men saw I had upgraded they obviously realized I was serious and I started to get a lot of messages.

I added my photos and more information about myself. Uploading a photo increases your chances of getting a message by 85%. You probably wouldn’t contact a cougar woman who didn’t have a photo up after all.
Other features of the site include the ability to send someone a ‘flirt’. This is a way of showing them that you are interested, without sending a full message. They can choose to send you a flirt back. You have an Inbox, where you can check all your messages from cougar women, as well as any admin messages with updates etc. If you don’t want people to see you are online then you can choose to go invisible. A handy feature if you are editing your profile.

You can also add favorites, add people to your little black book, which will show you when they are online. You can also block people you want to avoid. You can upload multiple photos of yourself (the more you upload, the more responses you will get), chat in the chat room and check out who has viewed your profile. Of course you can update your profile at any time.

After joining you will recieve a welcome email with instructions on how to use the site. You probably won’t need any help, as the site is self explanatory and very easy to navigate. I was amazed at how many gorgeous people were online at the exact time I signed up.

The money I paid to join the full membership at was well worth it. When I compare it to all the money I would have spent going out to bars and clubs trying to meet men. You can always choose a free membership to start and then upgrade later.

For cougar women there is a good ratio of  men to women, so it is a great site to join. So far I have been more than happy with my membership at and will continue to use it for many dates in the future. Perhaps I will even meet Mr Right.

What Makes Me a Cougar Woman?

Click the pic to see my profile on CougarDateLink

You have probably heard the term cougar woman a lot in the media, but have you ever wondered what makes a woman a cougar? Well, the first thing to know is that cougar is not a derogatory word. Women who are referred to as cougars are named after the wild cat and I like to call myself a cougar woman because I believe I exhibit some of the cats strengths, such as power, beauty and success. Cougar women know what they want and aren’t afraid to go out and get it. Here is a checklist of what I feel makes a woman a cougar (and what makes me a cougar)– hey you could be one yourself!
1. A cougar woman is over 35 years old.
2. A cougar woman is attracted to younger men. These men (or cubs) are usually 10 years or more younger and exhibit qualities such as good looks and a fun and exciting personality.
3. Cougar women are predatory in their flirting techniques. They are not worried about approaching men and are great flirts. They enjoy male attention and know what to do to get it.
4. Cougar women take care of themselves. They value their looks and do what is necessary to maintain them. For some this means regular gym workouts or pilates classes. Others may spend money on nice clothes, make up and expensive hair styles. For some cougars plastic surgery is the answer and they may invest in a breast augmentation or a lift here or there (although I haven't had to go that far...yet)
5. Cougar women exude confidence. This shines through in the way they walk, talk, flirt and generally enjoy life.
6. Cougar women are often successful in work and life. They are usually quite well off and enjoy treating their younger dates. These women are a joy to be around as they tend to be so much less stressful than younger girls, who can be insecure in their looks and life path.
So what makes me a cougar woman? Well, a combination of some of the qualities listed above. You can see why so many young men are falling over themselves to date one us. Whether it be a casual fling (Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer), or serious relationship (think when Ashton Kutcher was married to Demi Moore) cougar relationships are a whole lot of fun.

My First Dating Site Review - CougarDateLink

 I like going to bars now and again, but the truth is if there is an easier way to meet younger men then I will leap on it and online dating seems to be the way forward. I am told 'everyone is doing it'.  There are a variety of dating sites to choose from and I think that you will find some cougars and younger men looking for older women on most dating sites, however to make my cougar dating experience even easier I decided to start off by signing up for a dating site that specializes in cougar and cub relationships. So today I will be reviewing (and am proud to say I am now a member of) a popular cougar online dating site called CougarDateLink.

The sign up process at CougarDateLink was very easy (even for me!). It was just a matter of going to the website and entering a few details, such as my name and email address. I then added some more information about myself. This information should help me find younger men (cubs) looking for the same kind of relationship as I am. It will also help me to find someone I have things in common with and that I am likely to have chemistry with. Please fill in your profile as completely as possible. Whenever I saw a profile not filled in or without a pic I just went on to the next one. The website is very secure and they reguarly update their virus prevention software.It is a very safe site and I feel my information is well protected.

I decided to add a profile photo, which was easy to upload from my computer. Once I had added my details including whether I smoke or drink (no and sometimes), have any pets (a dog and a cat), what I look like (5ft, blonde, slim with curves, brown eyes) and my hobbies (fine dining, travelling to exotic locations, funny movies, dancing) I was able to log into my email and confirm my free membership. I just needed to click the link in the email. That way CougarDateLink ensures that I actually wanted to join.
I was quite impressed that there were thousands of cougars and cubs waiting to hook up on the site and once I started browsing I was surprised how many people are online from my local area.
It is quite addictive browsing through the profiles of various young men and reading profiles. If you like someone, you can send a message and see whether they respond (no where near as scary as approaching people in the real world). You can chat online and get to know someone before you meet. I was surprised by how many messages I have already received from interested people. So much easier and less embarrassing for them and me than trying to get numbers in a bar.
If you are worried about safety then it is easy to get to know someone very well before meeting, which you may wish to do. You should also (with all dates) let someone know where you are going and when you will be back. That is just common sense and I already have my best friend Leslie recruited to be my wing lady.
Once I checked out all the free membership had to offer I decided to upgrade, as then I was able to use the full search features and find many more connections. I also find people take you more seriously as a paid member. I can only speak for myself, but so far I have only considered requests/flirts from paid members, simply because it makes it obvious these men are serious about dating a cougar woman and not just there for a laugh. I am too old to be stood up! Mind you, perhaps not all members feel like this and you  can certainly use the site for free to start with to see whether it is for you.
All in all I was really pleased with this site. I was amazed how many people were in my area and I loved the live chat feature. When I had a question that was not in the FAQs I contacted support and they were incredibly friendly and helpful. I give CougarDateLink top marks! Stay tuned for info on my first cougar, cub date!

I admit it...I am a cougar woman!

Oh hello there! 

It has been quite some time since I have been part of the dating scene and I have been told by various relatives and friends that I should go for someone my own age, but really...I want a bit of fun! So what I am 52 and should probably be knitting for my grandchildren. That is not the real me! I want to travel, to eat at fine restaurants, to dance! That is why I am looking for casual relationships with younger men. I think they will be less likely to want serious commitment and far less likely to make demands on me. I am old enough now to know what I want in life. I have had my serious relationship and now that is well and truly over I want something totally different.

I have always taken good care of myself; going to the gym, getting my hair and nails done and recently I have got into zumba ( which is great for creating fabulous curves). I enjoy being around younger people and they seem to enjoy being around me. I am not looking for a man to take care of me - I can do that myself. I am financially stable and if I want to date younger men - I guess that makes me a cougar woman! I'm not afraid to say it - in fact I think it is time to embrace it.

So this blog is here to follow my journey as I plunder through the world of bars and online dating sites. Hopefully you will learn from some of my mistakes and get some useful tips to either date a cougar woman or a younger guy.
