Definition of a Cougar...

...To me when I hear the word cougar used to describe a woman, I think of a hot older woman that does not look her age. This past Saturday, one of Matt's friends brought his cougar with him to the dinner event. Everyone has always called her a cougar and we referred to her as the cougar all night (not to her face) but she did not meet the criteria stated above.

Monday I had a dentist appointment and can I just say that I love my hygienist...she is hilarious and we totally see eye to eye on all things non-teeth related. So as she's cleaning my teeth, she's telling me about her latest love interest and how he's a younger man, 12 years younger than her (this is just the kind of patient-hygienist relationship we have). I then told her about the cougar from Saturday night and how she didn't meet my definition. Then I look at her and say, "I hope this doesn't come off as lesbian-ish but I would say you're a cougar, you meet the definition." She was very appreciative of the compliment and took it in the non-lesbian way it was meant. So tell me...what is your definition of a cougar or am I the only one out there that thinks of these things?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

No, I think a cougar is an old women who "preys" on younger guys. Whether she is hot or not. (But she always thinks she's hot.)

Yeah when I hear the word cougar I def think of a hot older lady. but I guess technically it is as described above. But I would think to be successful they wouyld have to be hot.

A cougar is always an older woman, 40s usually. If it's someone that is in the guy's age range - that's a sponsor.

When I hear cougar, I don't think of a hot older woman. I think of an older woman dressed a little skanky. Lol. I don't like the term cougar either though.

Oh I totally think about these things. I think a cougar is a woman who goes over younger men, but tries hard to look as good as possible and younger than she is...now notice I didn't say "hot"..because sometimes they fail miserably. But love their hearts, they try.
