That’s the difference. Whereas the other way around, it’s, Give me money, and then I’ll spend time with you.

How much does seeking arrangement cost?

How long does it take for my profile to be approved? Please be patient, photos and profiles enter the approval process in the order they were received. This usually takes 24-48 hours, however if the site is experiencing a high volume, this process may take longer.

“To get the attention of the girl I really wanted to meet, I was kind of at the mercy of the statistics of traditional dating sites. I’d write hundreds of emails and only get one or two replies,” says Wade, who is now divorced. He says married men account for at least 40 percent of the site’s sugar daddies. Sugar babies outnumber sugar daddies by a ratio of nearly 10 to 1. Wade declined to disclose how much money he makes from the site.

Emily said that she’s felt “more threatened on Tinder dates” than she has on Seeking Arrangement and that even with the age difference, she fears 20-something-year-old males more than she fears anyone, especially in a college town. There are limits, however, to how honest a person can be on Seeking Arrangement. Identities are often partially concealed, with neither sugar babies nor sugar daddies disclosing too much personal information. All users have their reservations, and no one is immune to the worry of being exposed. As of 2017, more than 1.2 million college students have registered as sugar babies on Seeking Arrangement.

Is there a Seeking Arrangement app?

Three-month of premium membership cost $44.85, which reduces the monthly cost to $14.95. And finally, if you pay for a six-month subscription, one month will only cost you $9.95. So, we can safely state that SeekingArrangement services cost less than average in the market.

3. Does Seeking Arrangement Work?

  • “If anyone tells you they’re not sleeping with these guys, they’re lying, even if it’s just a blow job, because no one pays for all that without expecting something in return.
  • I’m not from a wealthy family, and even though I was working, and still I’m working three jobs, there was always a [shortfall].
  • However, after you send the money this lady disappears and doesn’t respond anymore.
  • VICE reports that Seeking Arrangement has branched out, creating a number of sister sites.

The sugar “baby” is stereotypically younger, though this isn’t always the case. A sugar baby receives monetary benefits from the sugar daddy in the relationship, whether it’s lavish gifts, vacations, or cash to pay bills. Seeking Arrangement doesn’t call for strictly sexual relationships. Sugar babies and sugar daddies can specify whether they’re looking for nonsexual, or even online-only, arrangements. But, in the experiences of both Brian and Emily, sex is almost always implied.

Since I was still a bit hesitant about how far I’d be willing to take my experiment, I signed up using the pseudonym Annabelle Walker. The site, which launched in 2006, has about 420,000 members, of which roughly one-third are sugar daddies and two-thirds are sugar babies (sugar mommies account for less than one percent). While sugar daddies pay $49.95 per month for a premium membership (or $1,200 a month for Diamond Club certification, which requires verification of one’s net worth through tax-return data), as a sugar baby I was able to join for free. I uploaded two photos and listed some general information about myself, and I stated “open, amount negotiable” in the space that asks what you’re looking for.

Seeking Arrangement can come across as an elusive, glamorous and even sinister line of work, but at its core, it is really something that any student can relate to — whether it be the struggles of funding an education, barely scraping by to pay the rent each month or just the curiosity of seeing who thinks you’re attractive. Sugar babies are not virtual. They are real people with real intentions who think about what they do.

This means what she does is completely legal, and she wants people to understand this. The business, Phoebe says, is worthwhile.

The company, which is headquartered in Las Vegas, now places strategic pop-up ads that appear whenever someone types “tuition help” or “financial aid” into a search engine. And over the past five years, Wade says he’s seen a 350 percent increase in college sugar baby membership — from 38,303 college sugar babies in 2007 to 179,906 college sugar babies by July of this year. The site identifies clients who might be students by the presence of a .edu email address, which the site verifies before it will allow a profile to become active. Although, it should be noted that individuals without .edu email addresses can identify as students as well.

Some men derive satisfaction and empowerment from the feeling of owning and oppressing a younger woman. Both Brian and Emily first got involved with Seeking Arrangement at a time when finances were particularly tight.

These sites include the “no gold diggers allowed” millionaire dating site SeekingMillionaire, as well as the bribe-to-date service Carrot Dating. In the video above from the official Seeking Arrangement YouTube channel, people who can’t afford “Obamacare” are offered the chance to join Seeking Arrangement. Seeking Arrangement, to its credit, does offer a background check service. Sex crimes, domestic violence, violent crimes, misdemeanors, and other criminal issues can cause an individual to fail Seeking Arrangement’s background check. SFGate.com notes that Alix Tichelman would meet her alleged clients through Seeking Arrangement.
