18. That's the problem is the label gets misused and is therefore misunderstood.
A cougar is not every woman who dates/marries an younger man.

A cougar is an older woman who goes to bars where the average age of everyone else is 21-25 years old, they dress exactly like the 21 year old girls there, and they actively try to go after the younger guys. A cougar is a "fish out of water" of some sorts who is trying to fit in and thinks/acts/looks like the younger generation, and a younger guy helps her fit into that mold.
