Everyone has a sugar daddy these days. It’s true! With the cost of college and living going up exponentially, young people are looking for money in more unconventional places. Plus, with the internet forms of sex work (including being a sugar baby) aren’t thought of as taboo anymore! In fact, most people encourage their friends to make some sort of arrangement with an older guy.
Seeking Arrangement is easily one of the leading sites for making… well, for making arrangments of that nature. So is this site really where you should go if you’re looking for a sugar daddy? Read on, reader. Read on…
One of my first impressions of the site is that it’s not exactly that beautiful. It doesn’t look particularly slick or high tech. It just looks plain. But that might be good for some of the – erm – older users. It’s not too bad though. It doesn’t look cluttered or like it was created in the 90s and hasn’t since been updated.
There seem to be a lot more people than the stereotypical silver fox sugar daddy on here. It seems like a lot of young professionals (particularly men who hilariously refer to themselves as canna-businessmen) are also on the site. Either way, there’s a lot of money-motivated people to choose from (both as daddies/mommies and babies).
The site is pretty straightforward. It seems like that if you’re really looking for this kind of arrangement this is the site for you. It’s set up like most dating sites with an about me and a what you’re looking for section… the content is just slightly different from your run-of-the-mill dating site.
Instead of people saying that they’re looking for a loving partner or something of the like, they usually go into detail about what kind of NSA relationship or intimacy they expect from a potential sugar baby. There are also modules where you can list the kind of allowance you’re looking for or what kind of allowance you’re willing to offer as a sugar daddy.
You can add tags of what you’re looking for too! This is great because they’re more streamlined and you’ll be able to find a multitude of people who are looking for the same things as you!
Pricing and membership details:
There is some serious pay walling going on on this site. Well, it makes sense if you’re someone who is looking to literally pay for someone’s time and attention… however, I question why they would bother to paywall the
sugar baby side? I mean sure, some women and men use this site as a means of making a living… but then some people are looking for some extra cash to pay off their student debt.
The update will place you in the Diamond or featured member area, but to be completely honest I’m not sure if it’s worth it unless you have the money to blow on it… which you might not if you’re more of a casual sugar baby.
Location, location, location:
What I like about this site is that when you log in you can view some of the people on the site immediately. What’s great is that the people who are listed in that “featured” or “Diamond” section are people who live within a reasonable distance from you. If you’re paying to be promoted on the site, you’ll be able, and it’ll be easy for them to find you too!
The search features are pretty sophisticated! They let you get pretty specific with what you’re looking for (I mean if you’re paying for a partner you might as well be able to pick your poison). Usually, the site will paywall that sort of thing.
I like that the bios and basic information guide you to answer some questions that might otherwise be uncomfortable. If you’re looking to meet someone who has a certain amount of income that’s something that’ll
be listed on their profile! It prompts you to answer some of the tougher questions! Which is great for someone getting started in this lifestyle.
Be careful what you say…:
I don’t hate too much about this website… but what I do hate is that you have to be careful what you say. They closely monitor what you write in your bio section. And one of their rules is that you can’t promote any businesses… which kind of sucks and almost doesn’t make sense!
So one of the tags you can add to what you’re looking for as a sugar baby is “Investors.” But you’ll get your account permanently banned if you promote any business in your bio… Now am I wrong or do those two things seem to conflict?
But whatever! You’re using their site, so obviously, you have to play by their rules… but they never give you an opportunity to correct your mistake! You’re just automatically banned for life. I mean come on, that SUCKS.
Possible paid interaction:
One thing that I loathe about some dating sites is paid or fake interaction. When I originally signed up for SA, I immediately got three messages. I hadn’t even put a photo up yet, and I had guys rolling into my inbox
promising to take me on vacation. That’s super suspicious, and it annoyed the hell out of me.
They usually do this as motivation to keep using the site. I mean there is a new user section, but I found it very hard to believe that all these business-minded men were on Seeking Arrangement in the middle of the day
and just so happened to notice my profile (completely with blank about me section), and decided to offer me money.
When it comes down to it, this site is probably one of the leading places to find a sugar daddy or baby.
Personally, I have an account. And I don’t hate it! But I don’t use it a lot because there’s just not a lot of activity for my profile. I don’t know if that’s because I don’t upload explicit photos or because I’m not willing to pay for an upgrade. There are also other sites to choose from like Established Men and LUXY.
Honestly, I’ve had more sugar daddy proposals on Twitter (and there you can promote your business!).
