Who is really signed up here?
During the test, there were a lot of younger female members with ages 18 - 20. This was a surprise since cougars are generally 40 years old and above; 35 years old is already a stretched minimum (Sources: WikiHow, ThoughtCo, UrbanDictionary). Even though Cougar Date is strict about approving e-mails, they aren't strict about users having to complete their profiles. Because of this, a lot of members have incomplete accounts with default display photos.
