What is a cougar? We hear so much about them on LTT & LTR, and I thought you might know since the word is always mentioned in conjunction with your name. I consulted my favorite source for real, honest definitions- the Urban Dictionary- and found this description:
Cougar: An older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man. The cougar can be anyone from an overly surgically altered wind tunnel victim, to an absolute sad and bloated old horn-meister, to a real hottie or milf. Cougars are gaining in popularity — particularly the true hotties — as young men find not only a sexual high, but many times a chick with her shit together.
Does this sound like your fans? Let me try to put it in different terms to see if it sounds more familiar:
Cougar: An older woman who frequents movie sets in order to score with Robert Pattinson. The cougar can be anyone from a Hollywood director with a particular fondness for casting uninspiring teenage girls, to an absolute sad and bloated old horn-meister who creates “Pattinson Pants” in her spare time, to a real hottie or milf. Cougars are gaining in popularity — particularly the true hotties, those willing to ink themselves with a celeb’s autograph forever, and those with 14 year old daughters they can blame the set-stalking on — as Robert Pattinson was recently quoted as saying he likes older women, which solidified the rumored cougar ‘sexual high’ in women all over the world.
Today we’re celebrating cougars- your cougars. The women who come out in droves for you and for us on LTR. We love our teenage fans, we love our 20 and 30something fans, but today we really love our cougar fans. And we know you do too, Rob. So for National Rob-lovin’ Cougar Day, how about you make their day? Today on set, grab that headset lady who’s working so hard with her headset & give her a big smooch to prove you really meant what you said about lovin’ an older lady.
And when you’re ready for some hot 26 year old lovin’ again, you know where to find me. I’ll be here.

Memoirs of a Cougar: The Adventure of meeting Robert Pattinson
My husband and I live and work in NYC. I, like any respectable LTR fan, have been following all this Remember Me madness daily…..I mean, like everyone else, I can’t wait to get to work everyday and scour the internet searching for every little picture of him with your his Dunkin’ Donuts coffee….or him walking back and forth from his trailer to set….all the while being overcome with giddiness because he are just so beautiful doing daily mundane tasks. Pathetic. I digress.
Since I live in NYC I have been hoping to maybe casually “stumble”….*cough*cough*…. onto one of the movie sets to catch a glimpse of the golden child. I must say my first attempt was a total FAIL! The day they were filming at Central park with the Alice in Wonderland statue business, the location was only a few blocks from my job, so I strolled….ok, ran like Bruce Jenner….to the location after work. Ummm, when I arrived there were like 200 SCREAMING 14 year olds…..it was NUTS. I immediately wanted to crawl into a hole and die, so I left thinking I giving up on this dream and I can not participate anymore in this insanity. That theory only lasted like a week.
Continuing on, so Friday afternoons I get off early….only a half day….my job rules. My original plan was to meet some friends later for drinks, but I had hours to waste before meeting them. What is a girl to do you ask? Well, I immediately had the great idea that I would go onto the many “Rob tracking” web sites….which on a side note make me feel like a total perv, but I still check them daily….That’s Normal! I find that Remember Me was filming some inside apartment scenes in Brooklyn. It takes me like 10 seconds to think about it, and I am gone…..a short subway ride and I am there. When I walk up to the location it is not hard to find out what general location Rob is in…..just look for the crowd of junior high girls wearing all the Hot Topic Twilight garb toting their tattered Twilight Saga novels. Literally it makes you want to DIE, but you have to take one for the team, AND you are guaranteed to find some cougars who join in your obsession in the back…..[Tip#1...make a beeline for these women. Not only will they have the most accurate low down on what is going on, but they will offer you security in numbers. I met four AMAZING cougar Rob fans in the 10 hours we waited that night.] Yes, 10 hours….I am not proud, but hell when he is near, all sanity LEAVES the brain. The hours go by pretty quick as you get to watch him come and go from his trailer…just beautiful. I did want to pass on a few tips & observations I gained that evening:
- Get over the term “stalker”…..I like to call it “keen observation”
- You will have to deal with the kiddos….you will want to kill them….resist the urge….they will have to leave because they all have curfews and bed times…..patience grasshopper.
- Find the cougars….they will always know what the hell is going on…AND they will have the most expensive cameras to take the AMAZING picture of you and Mr. Wonderful should that opportunity arise.
- Hang toward the back of the crowd….it will ease the pain of the crazy AND the PA’s will respect you and have pity on you at the end of the night when Mr. Dad Jacket gets ready to leave.
- Be nice to his security team…THEY ARE JUST DOING THEIR JOB…and they have to deal with this shiz everyday. kuddos.
- When in doubt always Keep It Classy!!!
Lastly, I must apologize I broke the LTR cardinal rule in meeting him…..I TOOK A PICTURE!!! (I have to thank Alysa for her great photography skills!) But, in my defense he offered to the 10 of us left….I COULDN’T PASS IT UP!! He didn’t seem like he hated taking pictures, but I was losing my brains at the moment, so who knows. The whole experience was amazeballs and given the chance I would do it again in a heartbeat.
There is a debate on what age cougarism starts. Urban Dictionary says 35. Moon thinks 38-40. I think 40, at least. What do you think? Do you consider youself a Rob-lovin’ cougar? What age is it that you go from ‘just another 20 or 30something Rob-fan’ to a delicious Rob-lovin’ cougar? If you’re not the right age, you won’t get a cupcake to celebrate National Rob-lovin’ Cougar Day. And I baked them into the shape of Rob’s you know what.
PS: You probably noticed our new ModCloth.com ad since it’s looks awesome- And you may have also noticed a few other sponsors popping up from time to time. We’ve decided to get a few ads since our only goal in running this site has been to become really rich. We’re on our way. Yay. No actually, that’s never been the goal. However, we would like to stay in the black.. and currently running LTT/LTR & the forum has put us in the red (and been worth it) so our ads are just covering our costs. And going towards my “boat fund.” So far I have $0.43
