Sugar daddy dating, what’s that? Well, it’s when a sugar daddy, or sugar momma, is looking for a sugar baby and vice versa. In short, it’s people looking for mutually beneficial relationships. And these mutually beneficial relationships are popular both in British and the rest of the world.
For example, it may be a younger attractive person looking for someone to mentor them and pamper them, while an older person is looking for a younger attractive person whom they can spoil and mentor.
So what’s a mutually beneficial relationship you ask? It’s a relationship between two people who are looking for something beyond just love. It’s no secret that most people looking for a serious relationship are drawn towards security — they want someone who is not only emotionally, but financially stable. For some, that’s exactly what sugar daddy dating is all about.
For others, being a sugar baby means they’re looking for someone who can mentor them in life/business and pay their college fees. A mentor, or sponsor, basically. Nothing romantic.
For other sugar babies, it’s about the sex. They want to date someone older and more mature i.e. a sugar daddy or sugar momma, who can mentor them in bed. And the sugar daddy or sugar momma is enjoying being the experienced one.
In short, sugar daddy dating ranges from people looking for sponsorship to people looking for love. Some of the dating sites even perform background checks to ensure people are who they say they are. Other sites are, let’s say, more suitable for people looking to play and have fun.
So without further ado, let’s have a look at sugar daddy dating sites and apps in British and beyond.
This site only caters to about 2.5M people (if you can call that “only”), but like SeekingArrangement it’s been around for over ten years.
While Seeking allows you to create an Amazon wishlist if you’re a sugar baby, Sugar Daddy Meet allows sugar daddies (they don’t talk about mommas) suggesting a first date gift as an “ice breaker.”
This site offers an option to verify people’s photos so as to avoid fake members. However, there’s no criminal check or income verification. They do suspend any account they think of as “low quality” or fake with immediate effect though.
While you can use the site as a regular dating site, searching for members, the app also offers a Tinder-esque feature where you can swipe right or left and only get notified if it’s a match.
They are open about targeting “richer older men” and “younger attractive women” so you’ll want to fall into one of the two categories if joining.
This is the site for you if you know what you want. Firstly, you want transparency. You want to be able to express what you want. And you want a partner who is able to do the same.
Secondly, you are either someone who are successful in life and would like to share that success, or you’re eager to share someone else’s success in return for something you bring to the table.
In short, you’re a sugar momma/sugar daddy or a sugar baby.
Whether you’re looking for a successful mentor, a hot date, or a long-term relationship, SeekingArrangement provides you with options to find it. It’s about relationships on your terms. And with over 10 million members in over 100 countries, British included, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for. According to the site, it takes on average five days to find it.
Part of what Seeking offers is a background check on your dates. That includes verifying their income and checking their criminal records. It also offers sugar babies the opportunity to state what they’re looking for financially. But some people aren’t looking for financial support either. It’s a mixed batch.
There are a lot of sugar babies on this site, so the ratio between sugar daddies/mommas and sugar babies makes it great for the daddies and mommas. The site caters to both straight and gay relationships.
The site costs a lot for the sugar daddies/mommas (no surprise there), is very elegant and works well.
While the trending term in this world is “mutually beneficial relationships,” you could say these relationships come with secret benefits if you aren’t aware of the set up.
SecretBenefits doesn’t check your bank account, or criminal record, but it does verify photos, meaning there aren’t a lot of fake profiles (this feature was installed when fake profiles became a problem). At least people look like they say they do. It doesn’t necessarily mean they are who they say they are.
A sugar baby can use this site for free, while sugar daddies have to pay for credits that unlock unlimited messaging with someone, etc. While this can be a way of getting men to spend hideous amounts of money, SecretBenefits offers integrity, as a set amount of credit allows you free messaging forever with someone, or full access to all their photos. Many other sites want to charge for each message and that’s when things get silly (or scammy, call it what you like).
The site offers a “secret album” feature where you can upload photos of yourself that aren’t available to just anyone on the site. A sugar baby has to respond to requests from men to view her secret album photos, before he can use his credits to unlock them. Unlike some other sites, SecretBenefits have a no nudity policy, meaning women don’t have albums full of nudity. There are, however, plenty of sexy photos on there.
You don’t have any restrictions on how many matches you get — so long as there are matches meeting your criteria, you get matched!
AskMen gives it 8.3 out of 10, while Dating Scout gives it 4.5 out of 5. Unlike most dating sites, it has pretty good ratings on SiteJabber and TrustPilot as well.
This site calls itself “the king of all sugar daddy dating sites.” Their philosophy seems focused around the idea that people are looking for a longterm mutually beneficial relationship, that involves genuine caring. If that translates to its members is another story entirely.
SugarDaddy is mainly for people in the US, but allows people worldwide, including British, to join. And before you even join, you can browse members. Meaning others can see you, even if they aren’t members, unless you entirely hide your profile. The only verification process is an email verification. However, each profile is reviewed by their team before you are accepted.
The site design is questionable, but the site works well enough for browsing and messaging. In short, it’s a great site for finding people to date, but it’s far from the sleekest, or most sincere one.
Having been around since 2004, this is one of the oldest sugar daddy dating sites in British and on the web in general. However, it’s also for sugar mommas, so here the old gender stereotype, while alive and well, at least isn’t ruling the site. It is also a site that welcomes gay relationships, as well as extramarital affairs (with the same set up of a sugar momma/daddy and sugar baby).
With about 4 million members and about 500,000 online every month, you are more likely to find your sugar momma/daddy or sugar baby than on many other sites as well. Plus, you can search for online members, so you know they’re active. And with a free three-day trial (or full access for 5 days for $0.99) you can truly have a look around to see if it’s for you.
The site states it’s for people looking for more serious relationships, but whether that translates is another story entirely.
While the design of the page is outdated, it functions well. Members have reported coming across fake and inactive accounts though.
On WhatsYourPrice you don’t offer potential gifts to break the ice — you bid for a person to break the ice. Forget charity auctions. This is an ego auction where you can make money for yourself…
This is not a site where men bid for women only — this is a site where both sexes bid….but that said, it tends to be men bidding for women. In a way it’s funny — what are you prepared to pay to get a shot at dating someone? Truly. To get a shot with that hottie. It’s one way of avoiding the flakes on Tinder, that’s for certain! Of course, this concept only works if said hottie is on the site to find love, not on the site to earn money…
Many people seem to use this site singularly to spend time with someone for a date though. Not to find love. Basically, you’re paying for company, though it’s not an escort service.
You also have to pay for “credits” on the site so as to be able to message other members, etc.
This site isn’t strictly a sugar daddy dating site, but rather for “elite” singles. Sometimes elite refers to looks, sometimes to income, sometimes to being interesting (such as running a start-up at the age of 21, or being the head of a charity).
EliteSingles offers a questionnaire with over 100 questions that you have to fill out to be matched properly with other singles based on your personality. In other words, if you’re looking for casual hookups, this isn’t a good site. If, on the other hand, you want a serious relationship, it’s awesome. Because not many people spend an hour signing up to a site filled with people looking for serious relationships, if they just want a casual sugar daddy and sugar baby relationship.
As one of the most popular dating sites — in British and beyond — EliteSingles is a good option if you’re looking for a serious relationship with someone who holds a university degree and a stable job. If you’re just looking for some fun on the weekend with a sugar daddy or sugar momma, you may want to go elsewhere.
EstablishedMen claims to be a place where older, established, men can connect with younger, beautiful, women. It’s sugar daddy dating in a nutshell.
According to Dating Scout, there are plenty of active women (sugar babies) on this site (for whom membership is free). For men the price tag is a bit steeper though — a month’s membership costs you around $80, but if you subscribe for a year it only costs about a third of that per month. You can join the site and browse members for free, you just can’t read messages without paying if you’re a man. Nor can you see “private albums” that women can invite you to have a look at (this is where more private — read semi-nude or nude — photos are posted).
While fake profiles appear, they tend to be weeded out as the staff checks all profiles individually. Dating Advice still claims they have found fake profiles (or at the very least: inactive ones) on there. You also have to fill out your profile, or you will be automatically disqualified for membership.
EstablishedMen has been around since 2008, so it’s far from the new kid on the block.
Dating Scout gives the site 4 out of 5 stars, while Dating Advice gives it 3.4 out of 5.
Established already back in 2002, SugarDaddie was around long before it became popular to use online dating sites. And with 5 million members, and 2,500 daily logins, it has paid off.
While the site design is a bit outdated, the site offers perks such as no automatic billing, which is usually a fallacy of other dating sites and a major complaint among users. Also, while winks and such may be a good way of checking the waters with someone, here it’s IM only. Meaning you have to write something to get someone’s attention. This is good, in a way, because people are much more likely to respond to real messages.
It’s hard to search for members beyond what their location is, but a good thing is that you can see when they were last active, meaning you know ups front if a user is active. There’s usually little point in sending messages to people who haven’t been online for months!
Profiles aren’t reviewed, but profile pictures and emails are verified.
This is a relatively small dating site and app with only about 56,000 members, of which about 30,000 are active. Originally launched in South East Asia in 2017, it has members from around the globe, including British.
The app is beautifully designed, modern and sleek. Granted it’s new, that makes sense. Thanks to that it also comes with some added perks. Such as profile verification.
When creating a profile, you have to verify your email and your account won’t be live until the actual profile has also been approved by the team. For a “verified profile” badge, people have to upload their ID and a selfie. The site has several moderators working at all hours to prevent fake profiles, exploitation and prostitution. It’s about mutually beneficial relationships, not sex for cash. Some people aren’t even looking for sex in the first place.
With the tagline “Chat. Negotiate. Meet.” the company makes sure everyone knows what it’s about. Though arguably you can negotiate a lot of things in a relationship, not just what will be spent on you in dollars. Founder Darren Chan said in an article on Medium: “People tend to date a person because of what they are able to get out of each other, such as consensual sexual needs, emotional support, or even financial support,” he argues. “That being said, sugar babies are not obligated to have sex. They are not prostitutes — in fact, they are goal-empowered individuals who know what they want in life.”
If you have a college email, you can sign up for free. Otherwise, as usual, there’s the free and premium version of the site and you need the premium one to be able to connect with users.
Sugar daddy (or Sugar Momma) dating in British, like all dating, involves talking to a lot of people to find the gems amongst the common stones, so to speak. While some of these sites clearly go through a lot more trouble than others to verify their members, it doesn’t offer any guarantee that their members are nice people. Just like a bar, no matter how fancy, can’t guarantee that all clients are nice. It’s just, some bars attract a better crowd. On the other hand, if you’re just looking for some fun, then going to the fanciest of bars might not be worth your while.
If you’re a sugar daddy/momma or sugar baby, then sign up for free memberships to have a look around and see what site speaks to you. It’s nice that some sites, like Seeking, truly encourage their members to be transparent up front about what they’re looking for (and help you avoid the Tinder crowd that just wanna swipe for fun). And you’ll discover that while browsing.
One thing is for sure: sugar daddy dating is well and alive on the web. And thankfully, there are some great sites if you’re looking for a mutually beneficial relationship or sponsorship.
