Rebranded from “Seeking Arrangement,” Seeking is a hugely popular sugar daddy dating website. A truly international affair, it’s available in several different languages, including English, French, German and Chinese.
Seeking works a little differently than some other sugar sites.
For starters, men can only send up to 10 messages without a paid subscription. To send more than that, you’ll need to upgrade.
But for women, Seeking is a free sugar daddy website.
That’s good in the sense that you’ll find tons of sugar babies to choose from, bad in that you’ll also likely find prostitutes, fake profiles, and scammers.
But if you’re diligent about screening profiles, legit users who are serious about finding a sugar daddy are fairly responsive.
Seeking also goes to great lengths to attract “real” sugar babies by hosting Sugar Baby Summits, which are essentially a primer on how to live the sugar life.
There’s even a “Sugar Baby University” that encourages college students to use the site as a way to offset student loans.
Men can attract sugar babies by verifying their profiles. It’s a way to let sugar babies know you’re the real deal, and involves submitting documentation such as a driver’s license and tax information.
Seeking Cost & Premium Features:
A premium membership on this sugar daddy dating website costs $19.95 for one month. It's $14.95 per month for a 3-month membership.
These are the features included in a premium Seeking membership:
- Hide details such as your online status, when you joined, and what country you live in
- Keep your profile from displaying in search results, and you aren’t required to post a photo
- You’ll be listed as an upgraded member
- You’ll be notified when someone reads your message
- Access to advanced search filters
- There’s also an exclusive “Diamond” membership, but you’ll need to be a premium member for at least 2 months before you’re eligible for that. And at that level, you’re required to go through the background verification process.
A Diamond membership costs around $200 monthly, but it’s also a sugar baby magnet since you’ll get a “Diamond” badge on your profile:
Seeking is a popular sugar daddy dating website, so if you’re looking for a casual or long-term sugar arrangement, it's a great place to start.
Seeking has a mobile version for Android users.
Like Seeking, SugarDaddyMeet is an international sugar daddy site with users in 20 countries around the world, including the US, Canada, UK and Australia. It’s been around since 2007.
It’s free to create a profile on Sugar Daddy Meet. However as a “standard” member you don’t have access to all the messaging features. You can only reply to messages sent from upgraded users.
As a free user, you can add both public and private photos to your profile, search for users by country and/or state, and create a ‘favorites’ link.
It’s also free to photo verify your profile and send up to 50 “winks” a day to express your interest.
But to send a first message to any sugar baby you’re interested in learning more about, you’ll need to invest in a subscription.
SugarDaddyMeet Cost & Premium Features:
A Premium membership on SugarDaddyMeet costs $50 for one month.
The monthly cost drops when you purchase multiple months at once – it’s around $24/month for 6 months or $30/month for 3 months.
Paid users can access additional features, including:
- Browse verified sugar babies
- Initiate a message exchange or chat with any user
- See when someone last logged in
- Use the advanced search criteria like new members, zip code, distance, keyword, physical characteristics, kids, etc.
- Additional security options like hiding your last login and revealing your profile only to people you ‘favorite'
- View your reverse matches – profiles of sugar babies whose preferences you fit
- Respond to someone's first date idea
- Priority placement in search & browse results
- Become a “certified sugar daddy” by verifying your income (you must prove you made over $200,000 in the last financial year, or have assets of over $1,000,000.)
SugarDaddyMeet has a companion app for Android devices that has a 4.5-star rating.
Sugardaddie.com is a good option for a number of reasons:
- It has consistently been one of the most popular sugar sites since it launched back in 2002.
- You’ll find women seeking everything from a casual date night to a long-term mutually beneficial relationship.
- All users, regardless of gender, must pay to both send and receive messages – and that cuts way down on the number of escorts, scammers and fake profiles that tend to plague sugar sites.
- For an additional monthly fee, you can take steps to hide your profile and activity on the site (more on that coming up!)
- The advanced search functions make it easy to screen for your ideal sugar baby – ethnicity, height, hair color and body type are all filters you can apply. You can then sort your results by age (i.e. youngest to oldest within your specified range), most recently active, or newest profiles.
Sugardaddie.com Cost & Premium Features:
Creating your profile, uploading photos and browsing the user database is free.
But to do much more than that, including message women, you’ll need a premium membership.
Premium memberships are often discounted, so when a special is running you can get one month for $22.49 instead of the usual $44.99:
In addition to being able to contact other users, you can also check out your suggested matches in the “Meet My Match” section.
Discreet Sugar Dating
There are 2 ways to hide your profile and/or your activity, such as your online status, when you last logged in, and whose profiles you checked out:
- Stealth Mode: For $9.99/month, this feature will hide your online status, meaning no one can tell when you last logged in or whether you’re actively using the site. Instead, your profile will show as inactive and that you aren’t logged in. Your profile will, however, still be visible in search results.
- Private Mode: For $9.99/month, you’ll be totally invisible unless you express interest in a sugar baby by sending a message or adding her profile to your Favorites. That means you’ll only be seen by the women you’re interested in.
Sugardaddie.com doesn’t automatically renew your membership, which is somewhat rare for a dating site.
You can try it for a month without worrying that you’ll forget to cancel and be charged for another one.
Sugardaddie.com is an online only sugar daddy website, it does not currently have a mobile app version.
Like Sugardaddie.com, SugarDaddyForMe has been around since the early 2000s, having officially launched in 2004.
It made this list because of the concentrated effort to weed out escorts (although as with any sugar site, you’ll still find a few).
It’s also more inclusive than the typical sugar site, going beyond the typical Sugar Daddy/Sugar Baby designations. You’ll also find Sugar Mommas, male Sugar Babies, and gay Sugar Daddies.
SugarDaddyForMe Cost & Premium Features:
SugarDaddyForMe offers a free 3-day trial where you can give the full membership a test drive. Free members are restricted to sending just 3 messages per day, and can’t read or reply to messages sent from anyone other than fully upgraded users.
There are two levels of premium membership, Gold and Silver.
A Gold membership costs $44.95 per month, which includes the following features:
- Send, receive and read messages
- Your profile is highlighted in search results, and listed before free members
- Your messages are highlighted in the recipient’s inbox
- Weekly suggested matches
- No storage limits for messages
- Access to the Instant Messaging feature
You can also pay an additional $14.95 per month for the “Total Access” package. That allows any users, including those on the site for free, to read and respond to your messages.
Without the additional upgrade, free users can’t read or respond to you.
A Silver membership costs $39.95. But it only includes the ability to send, receive and read messages and use the Instant Messaging feature.
However, there is limited storage associated with both, and you won’t have access to your IM history.
Silver members also have the option of paying the additional $14.95 to unlock the truly unlimited messaging feature.
SugarDaddyForMe is also an online only sugar daddy website – it does not currently have a mobile app version.
Honorable Mention: Luxy
Luxy isn’t a sugar dating website per se.
Marketed as an exclusive dating app for the top 1%, if you can make it past the verification process you’ll find there’s no shortage of incredible women looking to meet affluent men.
Don’t want to jump through the hoops? If your income is over $200,000 yearly and you submit documentation to prove it, you can skip the vouching process entirely.
Or you can purchase a premium subscription, called Luxy BLACK. The membership cost ranges from $58 to $99 per month, depending on the length of it.
Here are a few of the premium features included in your membership:
- Send a message to any member, even if you haven’t matched with them yet.
- Access premium filters like income, location, and verification status.
- Control who sees your profile by remaining invisible until you “like” someone
