The best Cougar dating site on the web, OlderWomenDating.com is simply top of the tree when it comes to matching hot Cougar ladies with younger Cub guys. From the first feature to the last, OlderWomenDating.com oozes class. From the glossy, easy to navigate format, simple to use, handy and fun features, massive membership base and great subscription rates, it has all you need and more to boost your chances of finding a date. Its one weakness is that it lacks chat rooms and a handy Instant Messenger, but more than makes up for this in other ways.
OlderWomenDating.com features members from across the globe, but most come from the US, Canada and UK. Whether you're looking for dating fun, friendship or a long-term relationship, you'll find a massive choice here. With well over one million members and counting, the chances of finding Cougars or Cubs near you is almost guaranteed. At the time we checked out the site, we counted thousands of members online and there was a real buzz about the place.
Profiles are detailed and set out in an orderly way, making it easy to find out everything you need to know, including detailed, self-written sections, oodles of information about a given member and up to 27 profile photos. Whilst fake and inactive profiles didn't appear to be a problem, it's great to see that you can verify your membership to show that you are the genuine article. You're then rewarded with a 'verified' badge for all to see on your profile page. You can post comments on profiles, ask questions and check out the comments and questions of other members, all of which adds to the fun of browsing. It's also possible to see when a member last logged in, which helps screen out inactive profiles.
To get in touch with other members you're given a range of options. Email is the default method of communication generally. If you want to express your interest in a member with whom you haven't yet broken the ice, rather than send an email it's possible to quickly send an automated 'wink' at the click of a mouse, and hope that you get a positive response. It's slightly disappointing that there aren't any chat rooms on OlderWomenDating.com, as this would help to create more of a sense of community. However, this is atoned by the impressive blog and forum features, which are the largest you'll find on any Cougar dating site. These provide a great way of expressing yourself and of connecting with like-minded others, perhaps even leading to friendship or more. So, as you can appreciate, it's more than just a dating site and you can be more or less immersed depending on your interest.
It's seriously worth upgrading your membership to Gold, as you could save up to 60% based upon the normal monthly subscription fee.
To help you browse, you can take advantage of a number of search tools. The quick search is the tool for locating profiles based on very basic criteria. You'll also find a username search if you're a free member. It's slightly incongruous to find a link to the 'Cougar/Cub Fashion Show' here, but it's another way of browsing members, albeit narcissistic ones flaunting their midriffs, of which thankfully there aren't too many to endure. For Gold members, the advanced search is a great way of pinpointing very specific members, by specifying a wide range of criteria. Searches can be saved to avoid the need to set the criteria each time you search. Gold members also get a location search, which would be useful if you were looking to meet people near you, or in a location you'll be traveling to.
Free members get a surprising amount for nothing. In addition to creating a profile, even free members can upload up to 27 photos, verify their profile, post questions to other members and browse and quick search profiles. In terms of activity, free members can also participate in the blog and forum features by reading messages, editing messages and adding comments. Whilst communication is restricted, free members can still send free winks, reply to emails from Gold members and send greeting cards.
It's seriously worth upgrading your membership to Gold, as you could save up to 60% based upon the normal monthly subscription fee. Not only do Gold members get full access to all features, but they also get featured at the top of search returns, priority and highlighted listing and featured member eligibility, which really gets you noticed. Gold members also receive priority customer care, access to over 1,100 articles on dating tips and safety, an Account Manager to help you get the most out of the site, extra search tools (including advanced search), access to a counselor by email and more. There's a wealth of comprehensive information on the site offering advice and guidance and it's always easy to get in touch by email or live chat support 24/7.
