Cougars have got a reputation for being predatory. This is because older women who like younger guys know what they’re after and they’re not afraid to give chase. If you’re a younger guy who likes older women, this can be great fun. But first, you need to find out where to go hunting so you can be seduced by a cougar.
Where to go to be seduced by a cougar
Depending on where you live, there might be several well-known cougar hangouts in your town. But where exactly should you go to meet with older women looking for younger men?
The bars and clubs are a great find, but unfortunately not every city has them. So if there aren’t any famous lairs where you are, it’s time to head out to these classic cougar spots instead.
Some places, like the gym, have a mixed reputation for their ability to get you dates. While guys looking to meet younger women swear by them, guys interested in older women aren’t so sure. But it could be they’re looking in the wrong section.
Older women like conversation and while they’re glad to check out your biceps, they want to get to know your personality too. So if you want to be attractive to cougars at the gym, you need to strike up a conversation.
This is why personal trainers get so much attention. They’re there to talk, to help and encourage their clients. But you can get in on the action too. Sign up for classes where there’s partner work to be done — like boxing — and make a beeline for whoever looks good.
After the class, hit the sauna and ask her if she wants to come along. All that steam is great for turning up her arousal levels. And what happens next is up to you.
AFF is the best way to meet cougars that just want to hookup
While eHarmony can get it done if you are looking for an actual relationship AFF (which has a great free trial is way better if you are just looking for something casual. We spend a lot of time every year trying out the various apps and sites that claim to help guys meet women for more physical relationships. Most are garbage but AFF has consistently been the one that we have seen deliver the best for most guys. Super handsome guys will do well most places but the 95% of guys who don’t fall into that category will have the best success here.
When it comes to apps for this Tinder and AFF are in a category of their own. The problem with Tinder is that there just are not many cougars that actually use it.
On the other hand, AFF has a ton of women 30+ that are using it. They have been around since 2006 so it makes sense that they have a lot more older women.
With over 60,000,000 members it's worth giving their free trial a shot to see what is available to you.
While younger women can always be found at bars and club throughout the city, cougars tend to hide out elsewhere. Their preferred hunting ground is the upmarket hotel bar and the airport hotel bar. You are going to have better success finding cougars here if you're able to blend in with a more upscale vibe.
These bars are more conducive to conversation and they’re more civilized. While older women like to have a good time, they’re not into the type of scenes where they’re likely to get their drink knocked out of their hands. They also know in a hotel bar, the guys who come in are going to make an effort. Also, if she’s staying there on business, she can invite you up to her room without ever stepping foot outside. There’s a feeling of safety in this.
If you're looking for a relationship eHarmony can't be beat
Not all the best places are physical locations. Getting seduced by a cougar is just as likely to happen online as anywhere. But not all dating sites were created equal and there are certain ones you need to check out.
eHarmony is the best place to start. This site works just like a traditional dating site – you upload a photo and profile and then start looking at photos to see who you like. In our opinion, this is the #1 dating site for men interested in older women and women interested in younger men. Cougar Life was the top-rated dating site in our annual review based on its platform and the talent it attracts. Its users speak very highly of it too.
Overall, online dating offers many advantages to younger guys looking to meet cougars. It offers the woman a safe place to go hunting and this means guys get plenty of messages and replies.
Give eHarmony's trial a shot.
The grocery store
The grocery store is another classic cougar haunt. Whether she’s on her way home from work or heading out to pick up a snack, when the cougar’s here, she’s on the prowl. This is good news for younger guys who know how to make the most out of it. So if you want to make the first move on a cougar, why not try it at a grocery store?
Start off in fresh produce and get ready to make eye contact, flirt and ask questions. She won’t think you’re pathetic for not knowing the best way to cook an artichoke. She’ll just be happy to make the connection. Probably she could have waited until tomorrow to pick up tomatoes too but was curious as to who she might see while out shopping.
A charity event or fundraiser
Charity events, like hotel bars, provide a safe space for older women to meet younger guys. But unlike hotel bars, they’re frequented by tons of older women but very few older guys. This means there’s a man-sized vacuum waiting to be filled. And if you understand cougars, you know that they'll be on the prowl here.
A younger guy in a room full of well-meaning older women is a target for sure. They love to compete with each other for his attention and this is a wonderful thing. So pick the charity of your choice and get involved. The cougars will be lining up to get your attention and a date.
The post office
Not always the first place that springs to mind when you think of romance, but the post office has many advantages. Most offices take their post to the same place every afternoon and this makes it easy for you to see the same faces too.
What’s more, at busy times of the day, there’s always a queue and this gives you the opportunity to talk to the woman behind you, as well as a subject to complain about together.
Look out for opportunities to hold her parcels while she digs for her wallet or pick up her dropped pen. It sounds a little like high school but at the post office, you’ve got a far better chance of making it out of there with a coffee date.
Your apartment social or committee meeting
If you live in an apartment building or condo community, you’ve probably had a flyer one time inviting you along to a meeting. While we’ll admit they don’t sound like the most thrilling use of a Wednesday evening, you might be missing out.
Apartment committee meetings are a great way of finding out who’s available and who lives alone. You can improve your trustworthiness and get your name known by volunteering to help out while you're looking for cougars. Offer your assistance with whatever the most attractive older women are doing and you’ll be a contact on her phone. Then after a few good deeds and possibly one fixed drippy tap, you could find yourself being seduced by a cougar.
This may sound like a fantasy, but older women are a lot more pragmatic about practicalities than their younger counterparts. They’re not so concerned with starting a relationship with a neighbor and what’ll happen after it’s over. She’s mostly just thinking of the convenience factor of having you live just across the hall.
At the art gallery
Whether you live in a big city or a small town, the art gallery option is one to investigate. In a city, the public art gallery is a great place to see and be seen. To really make the most of this setup, consider taking out a membership, which will get you invites to closed-evening events.
Even if you don’t know much about art, you can still ask questions and offer her another glass of wine. And there’s always something to talk about when looking at art.
If you live in a smaller city look out for private galleries or studios, the kind where you can buy the artwork. These places also regularly hold wine reception evenings and are packed with older women both looking for art and the artists. Becoming a regular face is again a great advantage and will have offers coming your way before you know it.
A friend’s office party
This location requires a little more courage but don’t be afraid to try it out. While we wouldn’t recommend you go hunting in your own office, if you can go along to your friend’s office, do it.
Everyone knows flirting with your own colleagues is dangerous. But when a cougar sees a friend of a colleague who’s cute, she knows it’s safe hunting.
Dress well to make a good impression and remember to be polite. You want to flirt with your friend’s boss but you don’t want to get him fired. Likewise, you’re not looking for a job, so if anyone suggests a position just laugh it off. You’re there to flirt not to get hired.
But when the weather’s fine, the park is still the best place to be seduced by a cougar. Take a Frisbee, a blanket and a couple of friends and get ready to pitch up next to a couple of older women enjoying their books and coffee. While you're at it, why not bring along one of the best books about dating cougars.
Don’t approach them straight away but get active within their line of sight and give them a good quarter of an hour to check you out and decide they like you. After that, you can accidentally launch your Frisbee in their direction and see if you get eye contact and a smile when you go to retrieve it.
It’ll be easy to build up a rapport with her when a misdirected Frisbee lands at her feet for the sixth time. And don’t worry about being too obvious. She knows what you’re doing and she doesn’t mind.
