Seeking Arrangement is a website where financially well-off individuals, mostly men, can meet people of lesser financial means. The site has around 243,000 members, and has membership packages starting at $59.95 per month. Women don't have to pay to use the site.
Seeking Arrangement is an online dating site that connects singles looking for a mutually beneficial relationship. This type of relationship typically exists between wealthy individuals who are willing to provide financial assistance or gifts in return for friendship or sexual intimacy with a younger person.
All prospective members can join for free, whether they are a Sugar Daddy, Sugar Mommy or Sugar Baby. However, accessing the site and then attempting to sign-in can be frustrating and problematic. An email activation link is sent, which on clicking, one must then enter a password, and then attempt to login.
On logging in, members may then be routed without warning to the Company's sister sites such as Seeking Fantasy or Seeking Millionaire. Apparently this depends on the member's geographic location.
If members do gain access, in order to contact potential matches, men must first upgrade to a Premium status for a monthly fee of $30. They will then be given the privilege of contacting any and all members who come up as compatible matches. There are no charges for female members.
Two books are available and are being promoted on the site's home page. “Seeking Arrangement”, a guide that has been written by the site's founder, Brandon Wade. The other, “Sugar Daddy Diaries” is by journalist Helen Croydon, and tells of her real-life experiences of dating older, wealthy men.
