Cougarlife.comBoooo!!!!!

N Review updated:

I have been a "cougar" (paying member) on this site for three months and have met a lot of young men from it. I agree that most are looking for nsa relationships. The definition of a cougar is usually an older, attractive woman looking for an nsa relationship. Therefore, these young men assume that the cougar sites are a means to having sex with someone more experienced without the "drama" afterward. All the men that I have dated have been gentlemen and I never at any time felt pressure from them to engage in sex. Nevertheless, I have. Many of the men I have sex with never contact me again A few keep in touch and we see each other maybe one or two more times. Much of this has to do with the fact that these men ARE young and very self-centered (by this I mean focused on their lives). It is very hard to find a young man who is ready for a long-term commitment and I accept that going into any date. This is not exclusive to a cougar site. Ive had many young men on a non-cougar site also contact me with the same expectations. It is true that the defintion of a cub is usually someone who engages in a relationship with an older woman for a period of time until the excitement for both of them runs out (ie., proverbally "boy toy"). Many of the "cubs" on cougarlife.com talk about their interests but doing activities together never materializes. To an extent, the cougar, who has the advantage because she is wanted, can shape the dynamics. If she insists on doing an activity, being wined and dined, etc. this is sending a message that we are more than just one-night stands or an experiment, but mature, sophisticated women who deserve respect. Decide what your standards are and stick to them. For example, I dont like crude or lude remarks, but I do enjoy flirting and innuendo. If a cub doesnt present a picture or profile, I dont even respond. I insist on chatting with a cub before I will grant them access to my private gallery or agree to date him. (I wish cougarlife.com provided a way to chat onsite as many others do.) Some scam artists are easy to point out and I report my suspicions immediately. If we each do that we will clean the site up for all of us. All sites have scam artists. Its the nature of the venue, unfortunately. I have found that a good way to separate the "wheat from the shaft" is to chat with them a bit. If they seem only interested in naughty pictures, talking exclusively and explicitly about sex, ask to see you on camera (whether or not they do the same) and then ask you to remove clothing or perform a sexual act, show you explicit photos of themselves without your requesting it, chat in a manner inconsistent for their age, express excessive devotion or a desire for a commitment after just meeting, consistently express a desire to meet but then always having scheduling conflicts, I immediately become suspicious. Yes, there are a lot of obstacles and, yes, each has happened to me multiple times but I have had many enjoyable enccounters. If you are looking to experience intimacy and physical pleasure, then a site like cougarlife.com is a great venue for finding this. My dates have all been interesting and have involved good conversation as well as sex. If you are looking for a meaningful relationship with a young man, I cant say you wont find it on this site but it is unlikely -- just as it is unlikely to find this anywhere else.

    Scam alert!!! Scam Alert!!!

    The 1st review is spot on. I received about 10 messages with out so much as a world of picture on my profile. The supposed "Cougars" went so far as to claim I had the best profile on the site and that is was "refreshing." In what way. Advice stay away. This site is a total scam.

    Made a basic profile at this site, pics, intro etc..should have known better, but, I broke down one bored rainy night of a few beers and watching a movie on iTunes. I hesitated joining, as already was thinking scam, because there is no trial period, and you cannot respond to messages/flirts from others unless you join.
    So about two weeks after making profile had recvd 8-10 messages, which I couldn't read, and in a moment of stupidity I dropped the $40 for one month..only other option was $29 a month for 3 months. Anyway, so I responded to the 8-10 messages I recvd...did not get one response from the o'so interested women that wrote me..lol Yep, got scammed for sure. Positive they were employees of the site sending messages to get you to drop the cash to join.
    Do not pay to join Cougarlife.com I'm close to 40, in great shape, look good, so women between 35-45 are my age bracket im interested in..so thought I'd look there.
    Anyway, again..huge scam, waste of $40, will never see that again.

    I have a friend who had a successful hookup from a contact on this site. Unfortunately I don't know if he paid for membership, but my gut feeling is that there are tons of "women" whose profiles are complete scams, but that there are genuine people in there as well.

    Fake profiles entice you to pay for the membership to open their messages. Once you pay, these profiles would not even open your replies.

    @stay_away_from_cougarlife I posted earlier, still free trial membership. Want to "meet" someone first the online security agreement supposedly charges $2 for first 24 hours. Going to try and cancel once I do meet this supposed hookup, first day. This way I'm only out 2 bucks. Pretty disillusioned with this whole thing. Seems like different people answer the same E mail, some are well spoken, then all of a sudden broken english. Actually had someone saying she's from Brazil asking for $$ for her kid's books. Profile pic doesn't look Brazilian to me. Got scammed last year different website, people from Ghana. Easy to figure that one out, had some fun with it ; - ))
    Now, I literally have Facebook contaminated with literall several dozen profiles of West African people. Had to shut it down.

    First of all let me just say that I have no problem meeting women either online or in person. I have been on Match.com and met a ton of people and never had a complaint about it. I rarely complain about stuff, but I really felt like I have to make sure no one gets scammed if he or she is trying to make up his/her mind. This site a COMPLETE RIP OFF. So I created a profile and I started getting a lot of messages. After about 10 of them of so, I decided to purchased a membership for $40 (which by the way is more expensive than 90% of the websites out there). After opening up the messages, ALL the people who sent me messages had no narratives on their profiles. So obviously, they are not real folks. They might have real cougars on there, but I did not encounter any.

    I called customer service and this is where it gets better: they have a no refund policy and they even tell you that "It takes 2-3 months before you even meet one person." Now to me that sounds like you can HOPE to meet someone $120 later after investing 3 months of e-mailing fictitious ladies. The worst is customer service is so poor; you litteraly have to wait one hour before you can talk to someone. They told me to be patient as they were having difficulties with scammers on the site and the issue would be resolved soon. Well after minimal research, it turns out that today is 8/13/10 and they've been saying the same thing to other customers since last year. Those are facts, not opinions.

    Do yourself a great favor, NEVER EVER sign up on this website. I would recommend it under no circumstances.

    Mixed. Review. I receive 55 e-mails a day on avg. from guys. I'm real. It's hard to respond to all of them, but I try. I think that those who don't respond are either lazy or don't care about someone else's feelings. Or they think it's like a job application. "Don't call us, we'll call you." I went on 5 dates from this website. 2 guys loaded old pictures. Like 5 years or more old!!!
    It's a shame that others had bad experiences from this site. Unfortunately, this site is mainly full of horny guys only. As opposed to loving sex and wanting a relationship with an older woman.

    P.S. This site gave me the most amount of responses as opposed to other dating websites. Match.com didn't have anyone intersting, e-harmony has plenty, but no one I like, datetallmen.com is pretty good, but cougarlife yielded about 800 e-mails since June, 2010. Problem is I'm picky and looking for a few dates w. different guys to turn into a relationship. Met a great one the other day, but the match wasn't quite right. Wish me luck!

    This response is to new cougar, and I hope you will see it. I agree with everything you say. I am a 34 year old male going through a divorce because my wife who is also 34 still thinks she is a cheerleader in highschool. We have kids together but the family life wasnt fun anymore so she would spice it up with with younger or older men that she would meet at a gas station. I am sick of women my own age and I am looking for someone that has her [censor] together. Do these women exist or am I just a [censor]????

    I actually had an email exchange with a real live actual female - so i can vouch for at least one actual woman on there, out of the 40 or so that have reviewed my profile. We both had contact info hidden in our profiles, so we communicated that way, as i have no desire to pay for that site because it seems like 80% scam/20% real, if that much.

    Outcome: She lives too far away (over 100 miles) and is more interested in a LTR while i'm looking for more of a NSA arrangement, so not so good for me. But she was real.

    Overall: It seems like these women are looking for relationships and guys like me are looking to "get rid of the poison" and have a little fun in the process. I'm not sure why these women are so delusional to think they will find a "dream man" on a site that seems to be expressly for NSA hook ups, but read their profiles (the ones that seem real anyway) and they have more rules and regs than the military. WTF?

    I have to agree with New Cougar. I am a cougar on the site, paid for a month. Then stopped, but stayed on the site, then paid again for a couple of months, I am now what they call a guest. I meet just as many cubs (young Men) on the site either way, but I too like New Cougar do not answer anyone that doesn't have a pic, make sure I always talk or chat with them for while before I meet and only meet ones I am very interested in. I also have had ones that have tried to scam me, (so does my normal email everyday) and ones that have just wanted pics of me naked. But also have made some friends on the site, some that I talk with at least a few times a week. I have meet with 4 young men and each was a a NSA hook up, but that was what I was wanting at that moment. I am currenlty more picky as I am looking for the right cub to have a fun, shorterm relationship. I think that saying the site uses fake people isn't right, because there are alot of real woman and men on there looking for friendships, dating relationships, and fun times. I agree that your not going to find a LTR on this site, don't really think that is such a normal thing for cougar cub relationships... it just isn't realistic.

    Why do so many people say you can't find a LTR on Cougarlife or any other personals site? And that it's impossible for a cougar and a cub to be in a committed relationship? I think it's completely possible IF both people are looking for it. The problem is that most guys out there want the benefits of a girlfriend without any responsibility or commitment whatsoever...as the post by Jimmy Nordon demonstrates - he slams the women for being "delusional" and having unrealistic expectations of finding a dream man...but come on, what about the men??? They all only want to get laid, and many are rude, crude, manipulative, and utterly selfish in the process...believe me, I've experienced that far too much. Women want to have fun, too, but they also want to be treated with respect and consideration, not like a piece of meat to be used and discarded without a second thought. JN is wrong to say that Cougarlife is expressly for NSA hookups...that's just buying into the stereotype that the older woman/younger man combination is only about sex. I would love to be involved with a much younger man...if I could find him. I'll keep looking, on Cougarlife and elsewhere.

    Sorry, but while there may be a good number of real people on the this site, I'd say that the ratio is very, very small.

    Most of the women's profiles are most certainly fake and cross posted to other if not copied directly from other websites with the exact same names, profile descriptions, and titles. You can verify for yourself at ashleymadison.com. Sign up there and do a side by side comparison of matches in both sites. You will find the very same people in each. What are the coincidental odds that everyone in my area happens to be on both sites, with the same names, the same descriptions, and the same titles?

    In fact, I'd even go so far as to suggest that the people who have posted positively about this site are also working for the site. It seems that they selected their usernames specifically to reply to this post on this website.

    Do not under any circumstances hand over your hard earned money to these scammers.

    Hello!

    I have guest-status on cougarlife. I've signed up two or three days ago. 3 nice ol'chix messaged me allready. I could just read the first message, for the rest I've to become a paying customer. So I posted my Emailadress in my profile - and a clear explanation that I will never become a paying customer as long I don't know if there are real people on the site - all they have to do is to write few words on my emailadress. I am so sure, its all scam. It's so obvious! A service which demands you money just to send messages, that isn't serious stuff. I know other dating site which have vip-status and so on - but for your money you get things like extended favorite-list, your messages will appear on the mailbox' top, your adress is validated and so the chance raises you're not a fake - what other users find very cool. But messaging MUST be for free - everything else is no serious business.

    Btw, if there is a nice cougar: I'm 26, from Switzerland and my Emailadress is on the profile of treme on cougarlife ;D

    I have been bitten by the same problem as the original author of the thread. I think too some of the responses miss the point. If a couple of lonely ladies find a match, good on you. But why have an unattended phone line forcing people, some internationally, to ring to cancel an automatic transaction unless you intend to fraudulantly extend the payments. Complain here, complain to your credit card vendor. Have them require websites using their payment services observe a basic ethical protocol - join online, cancel online.

    The site is a total scam, relying on classic bait-and-switch tactics to get your $45. Your profile will get a few messages from 'interested' women which you need to pay to read. When you do pay and respond - voila - not a single message will be returned (or even read, mostly) !!!
    Then when you call to cancel, these scammers will only be available 'by phone from 9 to 5. Get it ? They will take your money online at any time, but to cancel you must call!! Then, after cancelling, your credit card will still be billed AGAIN by 'CL Media'...
    Enough complaints to the Canadian OCA will be the only thing to stop these scammers.

    Cougarlife is a total scam - they use advanced screening to identify new members who haven't yet upgraded and members who's 'premium' status has just expired, to bombard them with 'replies' they must pay to read!!
    When you get sucked in and waste your money, voila- not one of those 'replies' ever responds.
    They also copy profiles off Ashley Madison to make their listings look better. You have been warned, now its your money to waste on this scam-site.

    It's the biggest scam going! I was a bit doubtful about everyone's warnings since I'm from Brisbane in Australia and thought that maybe all the fake profiles were just in the US - not so; If anything I bet it's WORSE here! I filled out a profile and within a day had about 12 "cougars" add me to their favourites and got about 15 profile views and 3 messages.

    That's when I thought about signing up, because I wanted to be able to read these messages - then found this and decided to do a little testing. So I signed up for another account and barely filled anything on my new "test" profile and didn't put up a picture. Within a day I had the SAME 20 or so women view my profile and got 2 messages from a couple of the same women as on my legitimate account - why the hell would people be messaging you with all of about 10 words on your profile??

    Also, I figure it's probably 2 or 3 people running a whole score of profiles in my area - of the 25 or so "cougars" who viewed my test lame profile about 10 visited it at 5:30 am on a saturday - even if you are up that early on a saturday you sure as hell wouldn't be on cougarlife.com and I highly doubt that 10 women from my area would be! Of the other 15 about 5 visited my profile at the same time the night before and another 10 visited my profile about lunch time that previous day. How odd that these cougars seem to hunt lame profiles in well coordinated packs at unusual times of day. I checked my legit profile and noticed the same pattern with the same women at about the same times as well - SCAAAAAAMMMMMM!!! sooooo glad I read this first and didn't sign up!

    If there are any sceptics out there, try my trick and be convinced this is a huge waste of money! Try hiding your contact details in your profile and see if you get any legit responses would be my advice

    Can anyone help me?
    It's been three days since I signed up without checking it out. I'm now stuck on the auto renew subscription and there seems to be nothing I can do about it?
    This website is such a scam. And anyone that posts on this saying it isn't is probably working for the site, they all seem to be written with the same style of writing, capitalizing the same words and at the same points in the sentence.
    I'm from Australia so I'd say they'd just charge me if I even try to call them to cancel, and from what others have said you can't actually cancel even if you call up.
    There is nothing you can do online. And there is no way I'm going to let them take $40 from my credit card for the rest of my life.
    Has anyone been successful in cancelling the automatic renewal? Anyone at all? I really need some help.
    I'm going to try to get a new credit card because I have no other payments I make regularly on it. But I don't know whether that would even work.

    I am almost willing to bet these decent compliments about the site are from the site. Even if there are lets say 60 % real cougars why would you use this site when okcupid or plentyoffish have like almost zero of the b/s and are free???? I heard the advertisement on the radio and I have always been into older women so I thought I would check it out. Thank you to all of you that wrote these reviews. Not that I would pay for a site anyway, but you saved me a lot of time and frustration from even trying to be a guest on here. Is there any good sites for younger men to find older women???

    Hmm ... I'm interested in the answer to the same (petew27's) question. I happen to be a 'cougar' - I really hate that word, but what can you do? - looking to connect with a younger man, mostly because the men my age all look about 10-20 years older than I do. (I'm 50.) I came to this site to see if this might be the place to find a partner that could keep up with me (e.g. intellectually and physically), but I'm glad I read the reviews first. I guess I'll keep looking. Thanks!

    That's pretty disappointing to hear but I might have to agree with everyone. Fortunately I didn't sign up yet, I thought I was naturally accumulating messages from real women and eventually I was planning on signing up to check them all out and go from there.

    After reading this I went back and checked: not one of the dozen or so women who sent me a message has ANYTHING written for their profiles. How difficult is it to scribble something in? And most of the subject lines are pretty generic, similar to ones people have mentioned here.

    After awhile, it's pretty obvious that no one is even reading my profile before messaging me because after the first couple of messages I made it EXPLICITLY CLEAR that I CANNOT receive messages. I gave my email address and said if anyone wants to chat and get to know one another that they should email me. NO ONE emailed me and I continued to get a couple of new messages each day from different women. That seemed pretty odd to me but I didn't connect the dots until now. I even got a message from a woman saying "great profile". You clearly didn't even read it or you would know I CAN'T respond to you or check your message!

    It's really too bad because some of these "women' who messaged me are quite attractive. Too bad it's looking like it's all fake. Glad I stumbled upon this before dropping $40 AND having problems canceling. Maybe I'll check out some of the free options other people have been talking about.

    I suspected problems as soon as it pushed a recurring subscription, but I paid with Paypal and cancelled as soon as it notified me that a recurring payment had been set up. $40 is worth that, IF the website can get people connected, like it's supposed to. Received my first two messages within 24 hours, have responded to both to contact me by e-mail. Like everyone said: lots of profiles with only a single picture, and nothing more.

    After signing up, I got access to their "Exclusive VIP content", which is, apparently, about celebrity nude galleries and advertising for, ostensibly, a porn website (worksafe picture attached).

    I signed up on the notion that I would date less complicated women. I'm a baggage handler, looking to reverse that role, find my feet again, and make a few good friends in the process.

    We will see.

    This site is a total scam. Also, look carefully at all the responses to the complaint that praise cougar life; they all more or less say the exact same thing and look to have been written by the same person. In one or two of the posts it looks like the person who was writing them added to what they were saying under a different name. Very shady and poorly thought out, and it's not even remotely a stretch for a company that would send users messages from fake user accounts to have someone go to well-known sites like this one and post BS about how great cougar life is. I actually wandered over to this site from another one, and in the thread on that site there are tons of users who write the same kind of "I'm a cougar/guy looking for a cougar and had great luck with cougar life". I'm hoping that this tactic is as transparent to everyone else as it is to me and that the site goes under soon. They seem to be wasting a ton of money on advertising, so hopefully they won't be able to support themselves for too long. Also, if you see an ad for cougar life on facebook be sure to report it! This site is a total scam and anyone who defends it is automatically suspect.

    (The following is copy and paste from another user on a different site but his experiences matches mine to a T. Cougarlife.com pays "market researchers" to send fake emails to you to entice you to spend the money and also makes unauthorized auto transactions AND will edit what ever they please from from your profile. They deleted a whole paragraph from mine when I called it a scam)

    I recently joined a web site for dating with promises of finding the one. Here is what I really found. Lets explore cougarlife.com shall we? Older women looking for younger guys, or thats what they want you to think. I signed up for a free membership just to check it out, after all they want $87.00 for a 3 momth membership which is non-refundable and automatically renews every three months. With that you get 500 "credits". It takes 5 credits to flirt with someone, 5 credits to message someone and there are a variety of gifts you can send to another member that cost anywhere from 5 to 30 credits. If another "guest" or a person who doesn't have a full membership sends you a message, yep you guessed it, another 5 credits just to read their message. Oh but wait you only have to do that once for the initial contact then all others are free. So I had these 2 very fine ladies sending me "collect" messages. The lived fairly close and were exactly what I was looking for. So like the eager young man that I am, I joined. I know, $87.00 just for a date...maybe. I soon realized I was in a very prestigious club being one of maybe three full blown members. I quickly opened my messages to see what they said and it looked promissing to say the least. I promptly replied back, using my newly acquired credits to get something going and within minutes got replies strangely generic but they both wanted to meet up so I was on my way!!! So once again I politely inquired for more information, trying to decide which to choose. Then I began to wait... and wait... Meanwhile I was assaulted with a flood of "guests" flirts and messages that were quickly burning through my precious credits. Thats ok because I still had my 2 ladies in the wings waiting for me. Well I never got another reply from them or from anyone else for that matter. I started getting winks again but from women in other states and countries as well. What could they possible want? They wanted me to pay them to see their web cam. I reported them to customer support and they promptly to action. No big deal, lost some more credits Ill just check their location from now on and not open mail from far away "guests". Dating sites always have a little spam right? I realized that you cant delete a messages that you didn't open. When I stopped opening them I stopped getting them. Hmmmm whats going on here. Seems like everyone only contacts me one time and then disappears. Almost everyone is a "guest" with no credits of their own to use. Most never filled out their profile and the rest didn't even have a picture. Everyone with a picture was a little to pretty for their age and there was a lot of 24 year old "cougars" that love to send flirts but only once. They always seemed to have someone else around to take their picture for them. Then I started looking closely at profiles that were filled out, although not a completely as mine. The hair color didn't match, height, body type, eye color, and some of their ages had to be off by as much as 25 years. Hey!!! These profiles are all fake!!! Well not all. There were a few very ugly and very old and very fat people to choose from but not many. I started to do a little research to see what was the deal. I checked out the "Terms and Conditions" of cougarlife.com and guess what I found, and I quote:

    E. Market Research

    From time to time the Service may include, offer, initiate or send flirts, gifts and/or replies from individuals or programs ("Market Research") for market research and/or customer experience and/or quality control and/or compliance purposes. Market Research information is used to provide analysis, feedback, trends, patterns, social commentary and information in the aggregate and aids in the process of monitoring our system for compliance with our operating standards. Market Research will NOT be conspicuously identified as such. Market Research will NOT be conspicuously identified. We do not guarantee the authenticity of any member using our site. Any interaction or communication with Market Research is independent of, and separate from, our general database of Member's seeking personal or physical or other kinds of encounters or introductions.

    VERY tricky reading huh? Basically what it says is, oh ya, there are some fake profiles on here, but they are strictly for "Market research" you know, to monitor our system. Oh and you wont know which ones they are. Really? So they couldn't possibly be the ones that lured me in here or the ones that have be burning through my credits like a drunken sailor. I asked for my money back several times and they politely told me to go pound salt and then stopped responding at all. So here is what you get at cougarlife.com, you have been warned and tell your friends, hell, tell everyone. In fact I want everyone who has ever been ripped off to copy and paste this sucker anywhere you possibly can. See how many people sign up after this floats around the internet for a while. I warned them ;)

    Cougar life is definately a scam!…..I recieved 11 messages, and 1 flirt (all from different profiles) before I decided to upgrade my free membership!…..soon as I upgraded and responded to each message, I did not get one reply!….NOT ONE!….all I got after that was messages from Nigerian Scammers, and girls soliciting for their webcams!

    The woman on cougarlife.com who are expecting a long term relationship with a cub are just plain delusional. unless HE be in his early 30s 28/30 around that yeah there is a chance. But on reality i doubt that a 25 and below cub would want to spend the rest of their life with a woman who is over 40. they just plainly and openly want to have a short relationship which involves sexual activity. But on a 100 percent hornyness scale, most of the guys who like cougars are very respective of them and don't come of too horny and actually respect what the ladies have to say.

    p.s I am a 18 year old Sydney male who likes cougars. email me if your interested

    I joined this site to see what was out there. Its just a bunch of boys wanting free sex that
    they cannot get off a girl that is more age appropriate to them. They think these women are desperate for sex. In my case, I am not, which I'm sure others are not either. They just want a pieces of free ###. In most cases, they do not even want to buy you a cup of efn coffee.
    I can go to the local bar and get a piece of ###. I love when there profile says " Hey Ladies" as if I am dieing to meet them. Or when they say "I am young and cute, I know you want me"
    Please... This site is like free prostitution for them. I recently met a kid on here that wanted experience. Whats up with that. Like I am on here to help him find the love of his life.

    Cougarlife is loaded with fake profiles.. you can find the girls on other sites from other cities.. you will get messages and flirts etc if you are not a paying member... want to test it.. start a profile with no information and no picture.. voila, you get messages. Now what female out there as the person above says needs it badly enough that they will message a guy with no information and no picture?? Especially when the women get hounded by guys..

    What a scam, lol.. Smart business however, drawing people in and getting them to pay by using an automated system to make them think there is interest.. lol

    Absolute scam. I signed up but soon after cancelled my subscription after seeing how terrible the site was. The next month came along and I got billed for a 2nd month even though I had cancelled. When i tried to cancel again it said "are you sure you want to cancel" so i pressed yes, then i get a message saying if i am really sure i want to cancel I have to call them. wtf are these people up to!?

    This site is ridiculous. It is a bunch of boys wanting to get laid. They say they want to hang out, but all they want is free sex. They say they are interested in older women, but only because they think they can get it off an older woman easier, and especially they do not have to take an older woman out to get it. The boys think that these women are sitting at home yearning for them, you can tell by what they write in their profile.
    This site is a Prostitution site and should be investigated. The only difference is, there is no money being exchanged.
    I got off this site in a hurry.
