Meeting cougars on eHarmony for long-term relationships has been pretty easy (try it now)
Meeting the single cougar you're looking for is hard enough when you’re busy. So if you don’t have a ton of time to spend at our favourite cougar bars, then you’ll need to take your search online. Lucky for you, eHarmony is way ahead of the game and is going to be your best option (it certainly has been for us).
There are a lot of possible sites and apps to try out there but eHarmony really stands out in a couple of very important areas (aside from the fact that we have seen a lot of guys find success using it). The first big one is that they have a ton of women 35+ using it (and 30,000,000+ active members). Most women 35+ have heard about eHarmony and are very comfortable using it.
Guys looking for a relationship will do especially well on eHarmony. In fact, 75% of all marriages that started online are because of eHarmony. Those kinds of results are incredible and really speak to how effective their system is.
The other big difference is just how engaged and willing to meet the average woman on eHarmony is. Since you have to jump through a few hoops to signup and take their personality test it eliminates all the women who would otherwise be wasting your time (it's well worth the time to complete though). Women who just want attention or an ego boost don't bother which makes the experience of using the site much, much better.
We test out and review all the top sites for meeting cougars every year and eHarmony is our current favorite. You have a ton of options, a wide variety of cougars, and the best chances of finding someone you really click with. Check out their proven trial and see what we mean. You need to try something new if you want to change your results!
