When does a woman hit "cougar" status?

I'm 33, and a close friend keeps joking that I'm nearing "cougar" status... really? What's the official age?

Updates:
Sadly I don't fancy younger guys... so I guess I'm in the clear! Ha!

  • Age doesn't matter. Its the persuit of men younger than you that marks a couger.

    In my opinion, its whenever there is an obvious age difference by look

  • Cougar is more to do with the age difference (10years) between the woman and the younger man she's dating. If the same woman is dating or married to a man 10 years older than her, the cougar label suddenly disappears! And I am not sure there are any specific labels for men who date or marry ladies 10 years younger - it's a little sexist!

  • 33 is a young milf. Cougars start around early 40's.

  • Hey now, 33 is YOUNG YOUNG YOUNG. 8)

    *directs you to my age*

    Seriosusly though, don't you have to be 40+ to earn that moniker?

  • nah thats just their way of taking the piss... you really need to be older than that, more 40ish i would say.

    but the thing about being a cougar is that you really need to be trying to bed inappropriately younger guys. say guys in their early 20s so they are basically half your age..

    age appropriate partners dont make you a cougar :P

  • There is no official age, same as dirty old man. It's just the whole she's sleeping with someone much younger then her... I wouldn't worry about it.

  • Yeh its getting there, 40 definitely, 35 maybe? Im not sure there's an actual definition. I mean if you were to sleep with an 18 year old him and his friends might class you as one.

  • I think your hot! Would you watch a guy wearing shorts trying to get his car started when it was cranking over but not catching? That's what happened to me when I was leaving the gym and some girl kept watching me. I was embarrassed but kind of turned on.

    • I wouldn't watch, I'd probably come over and see if I could help... if not offer what help I could

    • It usually wear medium high shorts-few inches above the knee, and they ride up a little, when I have trouble starting my car I try and pump the gas and say "come on please start". Is that kind of sexy? It gets me going if a girl likes it. 😀

    • Hi, I was headed to the gym again today I'm my shorts and my car didn't want to start again, I had to pump the gas a lot to get it started 😉

  • 29 to me. At that age she's ready to "teach" us younger guys "a thing or two"

  • Sounds agreeable except that I don't thing a 31 yr old dating a 21 yr old guy makes her a cougar yet. There IS an age aspect also. Again, its not a science so I may be wrong. :)

  • I'd say any woman over 40 that goes for guys 8+ years younger than her is a cougar.

  • When she's 10 years older than the guy, technically this is the definition of a cougar...

  • This is a good question. As a follow up, what is the minimum age difference between the woman and the younger guy for that to be considered a cougar?

    My mom jokes about being one, but her husband is only 6 years younger. I don't think that's actually a cougar. Is it?

  • I agree with many of the additions here. Your cougar when you go after younger guys. I'm a cougar. I'll be 25 this month and I love 18-year-old guys. They reload faster

  • You could be a cougar if hitting on a 23 year old man, for instance.
