The term derived from the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles California. Because it is the hills where wildlife live such as cougars, deer, etc... Much like a cougar, the rich woman living in the Hollywood hills comes down the mountain to prey on young men. The younger guys usually struggling actors/waiters, starving musicians, starving students, or just starving are eager to get their drinks paid for by these ladies. They also hope these ladies will invite them back to their pad for some fun in their beautiful rich homes.
Since the term started to catch on and expand across the states the definition has been changed many times over.
However, the basic character is the same. Financially secure women over 30 years old who like younger men to marry, sleep with, or just have around for eye candy.
Three common flaws in the cougar’s camouflage:
1. She knows a lot of your acquaintances and they tend to have positive initial individual reactions to seeing her, but quickly shy away when they realize they are in the herd. (Cougars are known to prey upon many animals in the same herd that generally enjoy the experience but fear publicly admitting the encounter, as falling prey to a cougar scars the reputation.)
2. Despite her ability to fit in by wearing the current fashion, during conversation about current popular music or TV culture she may make references of many retro or historical topics that you may or may not have some basic knowledge of. (Cougars are generally fifteen or more years older than they appear in a dimly lit bar or club and generally prey upon victims substantially younger than they are.)
3. Cougars tend to have trophy toys to entice their prey such as expensive sports cars, hot tubs, expensive homes, etc. which are products of their years of success in their careers. (These luxuries are not easily afforded during the more youthful period that preceded becoming a cougar.)
Bear in mind, once a cougar on the prowl has cornered you, separated you from the herd and pounced, you too will likely not publicly admit to the encounter.
