Continuing our review series to find the best place to meet cougars online we investigate BeCougar. As part of our ongoing process to provide the best cougar dating site reviews we have conducted an in-depth profile of BeCougar so that you don't have to. As always, the very best cougar dating sites will be seen at the top of our Best Online Cougar Dating Sites Review.
As you will see in our review below BeCougar is almost certainly a site out to take your money and run. There are few legitimate cougar dating sites worth pursuing online (those that are can be found in our Best Online Cougar Dating Sites list) and BeCougar is certainly not the best place to meet cougars online.
Don't take my word for it though, see the results below for yourself.
As soon as I punched in BeCougar I was immediately sent to BeNaughty.com. This is not a cougar dating site. This is a typical online dating site that caters to everyone.
This is ALWAYS a really bad sign.
Even though BeCougar doesn't look particularly sketchy from the homepage they have already lured me in with the hopes of cougars only to send me to a generic site. This never ends well.
Depending on what you are looking for, Cougar Life and Adult FriendFinder are most likely going to be far better options (if you don't want to waste your time). While these sites are very different they both have a ton of cougars using them.
If you are just looking for sex, Adult FriendFinder is where you want to be. They have over 60 million members, the most cougars of any hookup app we have seen (even Tinder), and guys who are not super attractive tend to have the best results using it.
We have tried out just about every app and site out there that promises to help you find someone who is looking for some fun in the bedroom. In our experience, this is the only app that is worth trying for 90% of guys. We have seen the best success actually meeting up with women using it and wasted the least amount of time. Almost all of the women using it don’t just want attention and a quick ego boost, they are looking for a guy to take them home (in our experience).
For a relationship that could actually become longer-term Cougar Life is the better option. Again, they have a lot of users (7 million +) and all the women on this site are interested in dating both younger and older guys. They are very well known and do a solid job of connecting men with cougars.
You can use any of the links above to check them out for free and see just how much better they are than BeCougared.
When investigating online cougar dating sites the first thing you want to do is look at the profiles. Using Google Image Search on a few of the more attractive ladies I discover on BeCougar we find that most of them are completely fake. In my first search results I find:
These BeCougar profiles have all clearly been falsely created by skimming photos from the internet and writing up really bad fake profiles. There may be a few legitimate profiles on this site but all of the attractive women appear to be fake. Not exactly the best place to meet cougars online, unless you are a robot. Any site that includes even one fake profile is extremely suspect.
Warning Sign #3 - Fake Messages To Trick Me Into Subscribing
Immediately after logging into BeCougar I am greeted with the status bar above. Apparently in the time it took me to load the page after registering the following had happened:
All of this allegedly happened in the 2 seconds between registering at BeCougar and reading my profile.
I don't now how anyone could believe this is real!
I even received a message from professional golfer Emma Cabrera-Bello! I know I'm good a picking usernames but this is hard to believe.
At this point I felt that there was clearly no point in continuing the review of BeCougar as there is no way it is the best place to meet cougars online. Their site may be a bit more updated than some but they are very clearly a site that should be avoided at all costs.
If you are not too discouraged from this BeCougar adventure in illegitimate marketing practices take a look at our Best Cougar Dating Site Review to find the sites that you can actually find attractive cougars to date using.
