The site is well laid out and modern, and it's likely the most well-known of the cougar dating sites because of its extensive media coverage (yet only has 500,000 members).While the Inbox is a bit annoying (each message takes up a whole new slot, instead of filtering down and combining them), Cougar Life is where I had the most luck in talking to people, and actually connecting—and really, that's the biggest factor here.

Where Date ACougar loses points, however, is their difficult navigation, likely stemming from all the features they do offer.I found the site cluttered and a bit overwhelming, if fully fleshed out, and had a difficult time actually getting a reply to any of my messages.It does look more dated than all of the higher-ranking sites on this list though, and many of the male members seemed way too old to be considered cubs.
