For the mom who likes to date your college pals...
We're well into the 21st century, and it's high time we accepted and embraced the fact that many mothers now fall into non-traditional lifestyle roles. Enter Cougar Calculator, an iPhone app designed for mature single women whose dating preferences skew toward the young and impressionable.
The app provides a set of sliding gauges to determine just how much of a "cougar" one is based on the difference between her age and the age of her significant other (or hypothetical dating interest), a useful task in an age when women can also be classified as "pumas," "kittens," "cheetahs," or other varieties of feline taxonomy that some deem pejorative and some deem empowering.
But be warned. The app costs 99 cents, which means your mother might disown you not just for being judgmental about her dating preferences, but also for being a cheapskate.
