Cougars have learned that there is no such thing as a perfect man and they will have patience with you and will gladly point out if you are doing something wrong instead of sulking and letting you figure it out for yourself.
Firstly, If the woman is over 35, well dressed (often seductively), wears no wedding ring and is flirting with young guys, you may have found yourself a cougar. Try catching her eye and smile a few times but don’t stare too long – you don’t want to seem creepy.
Secondly, you don’t want to look like a mess. Cougar women have been around and they know if your looks are messy and untidy then your personality too is messy and unreliable. On a side note – this is a good tip in general, not just cougar dating. Nothing wrong with having a goatee but make sure it is trimmed and neat.
Thirdly, Cougars take care of their looks and their shape, much more than average woman their age. They also dress younger than their age and always in style. You should be aware of what clothes are in and wear something that will accentuate your body’s best feature. Something that will look good on you, maybe a bit flashy and attention-grabbing but still classy – you don’t want to look like a clown.
Fourthly, Take a lady friend with you and let her pick a cologne and after shave for you. In general you want something nice and pleasant, something that doesn’t have a sharp smell. And don’t overdo it, you want a pleasant smell and not too strong, so don’t spend the whole bottle at once.
Fifthly, Cougar women are often predatory and may approach you on their own. But still they will appreciate a man of action, someone who confidently approaches them. Offer to buy them a drink or ask for a dance. Just don’t fumble your words, be confident and direct.
