The term "Cougars" refers to older women who are looking for younger men, and the dating niche of Cougar Dating Sites has thus emerged, allowing older women to find younger men online and vice versa. Also, known as Older Women Dating Sites, MILF Dating Sites or Toyboy Dating Sites, these sites (like all dating sites) allow you to sign up, create a profile, add photographs (and, in some cases, videos) of yourself and communicate with other members on the site. The sites allow you to perform simple as well as advanced online searches for members in your local area that match your requirements.
Once you have a set of search results, you can then browse these members' photo albums and view their videos, as well as wink or flirt with them in order to express an interest. You can also bookmark other members' profile pages by adding them to your Hotlist. There are a variety of communication tools available on these dating sites, the main one being the built-in email client that allows you to email other members without revealing your own personal email address, although for this you will need fully paid-up premium membership. Premium members (and also free members on certain sites) may then also reply to your emails. Other, more advanced communication tools include video tools, voice introductions and instant messenger.
Our top choice in this category has to be the popular site Older Women Dating, which basically does what it says on the tin. This site is part of the SuccessfulMatch network of dating sites, which has grown and grown over the years. It has many members, lots of great features, is very user friendly and is competitively priced. Runners up in this category include Date A Cougar, Be Cougar, Cougar Life and Cougared.
Whilst these sites are not explicitly sexual as such, (at least not in the same way as our reviewed adult dating sites or swinger dating sites are sexual) by their very nature they mainly cater for those looking for short-term hookups with no strings attached. If you're looking for a short-term MILF hookup (or if you are a MILF yourself looking for a toyboy) then this category of dating sites is for you. But, as predominantly PG-rated rated sites, they are also targeted at older women and younger men who are looking for a more permanent relationship (sexual or otherwise).
In many ways, cougar dating websites are the flipside of the coin from sugar daddy dating websites, which feature older men (sugar daddies) looking for younger women (sugar babies) and vice versa.
