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

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 look1

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!3
