The younger men who date sexy, older women are affectionately referred to as "cubs".Sometimes there's as little as a five-year age difference between a cougar and her cub, sometimes it's 20 (or more).
For additional information, see this cougar brochure.
Cougars occur throughout Washington where suitable cover and prey are found.
Everyone can be a cougar, from top-level executives, soccer moms, community leaders, and newly single women who want the fun of a relationship without all the demands and baggage of traditional relationships. There is no standard age for cougars and Cougar Life welcomes women in their 30s, 40s, 50s and up.
The only requirement is that you're a woman who enjoys dating younger guys.
Cougars typically take good care of themselves, from going to the gym and salon, or whipping up a home-cooked meal when the mood strikes.
