SeekingArrangement Review

(FTC Disclaimer: We receive compensation from referrals from this site. Learn More.)

Seekingarrangement.com is the largest and most extensive ‘Sugar Daddy’ dating site on the internet today. The purpose of the site is to bring together wealthy and affluential men/women with attractive (usually younger) men/women in a mutually beneficial arrangement. The rich partner is usually identified as the ‘Sugar Daddy or Sugar Momma,’ and the younger attractive partner becomes the ‘Sugar baby.’

The site can also be considered a ‘niche dating’ site in the sense that it caters to the specific goal that its users have – to find a sugar daddy/momma or a sugar baby. With this end in mind, the site is also built around an easy to use interface, and the profiles are also constructed with this motive in mind.


WHAT WE LIKE

  • The motives of both the website and the users are clear and well-defined
  • A high ratio of women over men (rare in other dating sites).
  • Income verification for ‘Successful users.’

 


WE WE DISLIKE

  • Communication is not allowed for non-paying users
  • Considerably higher pricing than other sites.

 

 


THE SIGN-UP PROCESS

The basic registration is free and very easy to complete. You start by choosing which side of the relationship you want to be on (sugar daddy or sugar baby) and select the gender of your partner (you can click both). Then, you enter your birthday and zip code for location. The following window will let you choose some preset qualities that you want in the arrangement such as “flexible schedule” or “active lifestyle.” Finally, you can upload a photo, and enter a short ‘Heading” that will appear along with your name on the site and a ‘Description’ of yourself for your profile.

Once you complete the free registration, you can immediately start browsing the site and search for partners, however, with considerable limitations and restrictions. Similar to other dating sites, these limitations can be removed by becoming a premium member, in other words, you have to pay for a subscription.


MATCHMAKING, SEARCHING, & FILTERING OPTIONS

No algorithm automatically suggests matches for you. The reason for this is because of the practical and direct nature of motives with which you sign-up. If you are registering as a sugar daddy, it means you have money to spare, and if you sign up as a sugar baby, it implies that you are looking for a partner who can support some or all of your financial needs. Finance becomes the primary index through which users get together. Other secondary factors such as lifestyle, ethnicity, appearance, etc. are instantly apparent when a user’s profile appears. So you do not waste a lot of time trying to match your personality quirks or mutual habits.

There are a lot more sugar babies than sugar daddies in the user base. This means that if you have an impressive income and the right profile, sugar babies may try to get in touch with you. The website claims that the average time it takes for new users to come to an ‘arrangement’ is five days, which is lightning fast compared to big dating sites.

The search function lets you find prospective partners through a wide array of parameters. The filters include but are not limited to location (proximity), ethnicity, body type, hair color, education, habits, etc. If you are a sugar baby, you can even filter out results by income and net worth. But you can access this feature only if you are a premium member.

You will find that all the relevant details are displayed on a user’s profile when you search. So the interactions and communication are only used to chalk out the nature of the relationship and what each partner will give and receive.


COMMUNICATION TOOLS

Most of the essential communication tools can be accessed only by premium Seeking Arrangement members. Therefore, if you are browsing with a free account, you will be able to search for results but getting in touch will be very limited. Free users get notified if they receive messages, but will not be able to read them without subscribing to a payment plan. Sugar daddies without premium accounts can send ten messages initially, but this will be stopped once the limit is reached. Sugar babies will be able to send and receive messages provided the website approves their profile photo.

You can set your profile to show how much you earn and have if you are a sugar daddy/momma. If you are a sugar baby, your profile can display what you will use the money for.

Users can also express interest in a person by leaving reactions on their profile. You can ‘Favourite’ a profile, and it will show the next time he/she logs in. You can also see a list of who and when someone viewed your profile.


USER SAFETY

 

The website has a comprehensive security system in place. It reviews all new users for approval. The name of the site also does not appear on your credit card statements if that is something you do not want to reveal.

The website also has a slow but much-needed system of verifying the income of sugar daddies through personal correspondence. It prevents the possibility of users lying about their wealth to exploit other users. The site can also run background checks on all users. Once this is done, the verification will be displayed on the user’s profile.


PRICING

Subscription plans are different depending on which partner you want to be in the arrangement. Sugar daddies/mommas need to pay $89.95 for a 30-day, or you can go for the 90-day premium plan that costs 239.85 (79.95 per month). The programs are much less expensive for sugar babies, who can pay $19.95 for 30 days, or opt for the 90-day plan that charges $44.84 (14.95 per month).

You can also ‘Attract’ more attention by paying $9.99 (and upwards) for boost-plans that make your profile more visible in the site.

To become a Diamond member, a sugar daddy can pay $1250 a year for the website to verify his income and worth.


CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Users can get in touch with the website administrators through an in-site feedback form called a ‘Support ticket.’ You can write or report an issue here and submit it through the website. Responses may take up to 24 hours.

 


FINAL CONCLUSION

Seekingarrangement.com has managed to cater to a particular niche of relationships between people. While the nature of the ‘arrangements’ sometimes face criticism because it is centered on money, it does not change the fact that a lot of people out there today are looking for it. Regardless of the ethical implications of these relationships, if you are interested in getting in on the action, seekingarrangements.com merely is one of the most effective and user-friendly platforms available today.
