One of the main reasons for this is the increasing popularity of online dating sites.
A GSS survey showed that the number of people aged 18 to 34 years, that don't consider themselves to be in a steady relationship in the USA, has increased from 33% back in 2004 to 51% in 2019.
The site also feels cluttered with way too much information (if pretty to look at) and has singles as well as couples/swingers listed, likely because their database is (partially) shared with Cupid PLC, a rather large dating site conglomerate.
The cheapest and priciest option listed here ($12-40/month with credits; free for cougars), Cougar Life also sports the most confusing payment options, similar to Lavalife.
In a nutshell, you buy a month-long membership and then will need additional credits to do anything of use on the site.
With a cost ranging from $15.98-29.95/month, there's little here that I found particularly engaging or special to make it noteworthy.
There's live chat, more than a million members, a beautiful interface, "naughty" mode, and lots of search options, so why does Be Cougar rank lower on this list?
First off, all payments only are in pounds (UK$), thus skewing how I can report the affordability of the site.
It's about middle-of-the-road cost-wise, depending on the exchange rate.Although the site says it's dedicated to cougar dating, Older Woman Dating does partially share in the database of members at Successful Match.As the only 100% free cougar dating site that I could find with enough members (800,000 ) for a potential match, Cougared got some major bonus points right off the bat.Now comes the hard part: finding a cougar dating site that works, caters to your needs, is affordable, transparent and has enough members in your area to warrant signing up. 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.Cougar Fling does, however, a much better job of laying out the site and making it easy to use, yet has so few members—most of whom live in the US—that it's barely worth your while to sign up.
