Star Ratings of Seeking.com:
Chance of getting a date
Value for money
Launched by online dating mogul Brandon Wade in 2006, and with a client base of over 10 million members and 500,000 daily active users, seeking arrangement boasts of facilitating millions of reciprocal relationships. The site has been featured in several publications, earning the title of “the best sugar daddy fishing hole” from the New York Times in 2011. Brandon Wade describes his site as a place “where beautiful, successful people fuel mutually beneficial relationships.”
Seeking arrangement (or seeking.com as it is otherwise known) boasts of the largest sugar daddy/ sugar baby network on the internet today. There is a ratio of 4 sugar babies to 1 sugar daddy, and this figure continues to grow exponentially, perhaps because membership and registration are free for sugar babies. On seeking.com, a user can reinvent the rules of the dating game to suit their peculiar preferences. You may search for a romantic relationship or one with no strings attached, depending on what appeals to your personal preference. The site is open to both male and female benefactors at the same cost of membership and sports an 80 – 20 % male to female ratio.
Registration is quick and easy, and the bulk of it can be completed in under 10 minutes. The user information required is sparse, and following registration under a category (either sugar daddy or baby), a user has the option of choosing between heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual relationships. The most interesting part is that users are asked how much they want a potential sugar daddy to spend on them (or how much they want to spend on a potential sugar baby, in the case of sugar daddies). This will serve as a roadmap for the website’s matchmaking algorithm to find you the perfect partner. The cost of membership ranges from an auto-renewable $89.95 for a month to $239.85 for three months. On the android app, benefactors have the options of splitting payment into $24.99 for a week or paying a full 89.99 for a month. You can opt to use either an active email address or Facebook account for registration.
The site provides users with match suggestions and very extensive search functions. Search results can be arranged based on the frequency of the user’s online presence, the proximity of residence, educational background and marital status. Only premium members have the option of refining their search based on other users’ net worth, body type, and membership status. The site also seems to favor face to face interactions over online dating; therefore, you may want to consider other niche dating sites if a virtual relationship is your primary aim.
Perhaps the most unique feature about the platform is the “diamond daddy club,” which comprises an affluent and exclusive group of members. Gaining membership into the diamond daddy club is no easy feat, as membership fees will set you back a handsome $1,200 per month. Membership on the club is restricted to less than 2% of patrons on the platform. It is nevertheless an exciting advantage, as diamond club members receive up to 20 times more emails and quicker responses, statistically speaking. The site is also currently working on an equivalent of the diamond daddy club for its female members. This new feature will equally allow sugar babies to be verified, distinguished and rank higher on searches.
