“Are there any legitimate SeekingArrangement reviews out there? Isn’t that dating site a total scam?” asked a friend.
I pondered the thought a bit, and then realized I had sent several female friends over to the site. Did they have success? Yes. Were they normal people? Yep, if a bit more attractive than the average gal. Were they okay with, uh, prostituting themselves?
That last one was a bit harder to answer. Some of them? Yes. Most of them? No, yet still used the site and were very happy.
It’s a complex discussion this whole Seeking Arrangement thing – so much so that it requires a full review. I’ll do my best to share both sides of the equation (the Daddies or Mommas, as well as the babies) where possible.
Look and Feel
The layout is clean, with several matches on homepage when you sign in. SeekingArrangement isn’t cluttered with ads or trying to prompt you to buy into anything.
The sign up process is easy. You can choose whether you’re a man or woman, sugar daddy or mama, or a sugar baby. SeekingArrangement wishes to know your income, spending habits, net worth and so forth, though you always have the tiny little line “skip for now” at the bottom of the page.
The search function on SeekingArrangement gives you first and foremost, the premium members, followed by other nearby users.
Advanced searches gives members the options to check options such as those who have had a background check, favorites, premium, attended/attends college, and a few other options.
Members can also search by age, lifestyle, education, smoking and drinking habits, physical features, and relationship status.
Sugar Mama and Daddy’s pay: 1 month for $79.95, 3 months for $208.85, 6 months for $359.70.
Sugar Babies get free basic accounts, with the option to upgrade to premium to get higher search status and extra features.
A few things to note before you jump down to all the other first-hand SeekingArrangement reviews:
Phew! This section always generates some interest, but a zero-exceptions clause? Wowza. If you take note of nothing else in any of the SeekingArrangement reviews listed here (or below), that’s cool. Just know – there’s no going back. You pay, you’re a member.
The average age of a Sugar Daddy is 40 years old, whereas the average Sugar Baby is 25 years old. I’d love to hear from you in the SeekingArrangement reviews below, which (if any) demographic you belong to.
SeekingArrangement has, on average, 43,418 visitors a month. Women make up 64% of the site.
For Sugar Daddy’s and Sugar Mama’s, memberships start at 1 month for $79.95, 3 months for $69.95 per month, and 6 months for $59.95 per month.
SeekingArrangement has been featured in The Herald Sun, Forbes, Mel Magazine, Galore Magazine, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Associated Press, Breitbart, Harpers Bazzar, The Sun, The Huffington Post, Time Out, Jezebel, and many more. You can even sit in on a date!
There are also lots of claims to how much Sugar Babies can make. In Australia the average “monthly allowance” is $2,700 a month, and one mom shared her Sugar Daddy rented out Universal Studios for the day so her young’un could celebrate his fifth birthday. Then, there’s the Sugar Daddy that pays $4000 a month to his Baby, and the other who paid $75,000 AUS last year.
Interestingly, SeekingArrangement’s blog has a post from 2009 asking for information about users that may have scammed one another. You’ll need to sign into your account to post, but give the comments a good read through first. Perhaps you’ll recognize a name?
For Sugar Babies, there’s a fantastic article about SeekingArrangement scams. Specifically, what to avoid on the site (or, others) and how to keep yourself from getting involved with someone that can’t honor the terms of your agreement.
For Sugar Daddies/Momma’s, there aren’t as many options for support or advice. Considering the stigma attached with using these kinds of sites, it makes sense. When I was still the Dating Expert over at About.com, I would get several dozen emails a month from Sugar Daddies asking me to help them with an “awkward” situation.
With these folks in mind, I wrote an article called “Signs to Spot an Internet or Dating Scam“. Feel free to check it out, but know that I can’t update anything on the site, so it might be outdated. I’ll work on something more comprehensive, soon.
There are no verified coupons at this time.
SeekingArrangement has something for everyone. For women looking for a Sugar Daddy, you have the option of a free basic account, and for men or women looking for a Sugar Baby… well, if you can afford a Sugar Baby, the membership cost is nothing.
The site is clean and non-buggy, and the search function makes it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.
You tell me. Have you used the site to find a sugar daddy, momma, or baby? Were you satisfied with the website’s service, the person or people you met, and the cost? How about the features?
