Seeking a Sugar Daddy Online

Intrigued by online dating? It increases your exposure and access to men and women all over the world. Today there are thousands of online dating sites targeting specific audiences, such as Afro IntroductionsAsian Dating, Christian MingleJDate (Jewish), the list goes on and on. According to statisticbrain.com, over 40 million people have signed up for online dating, bringing in an annual revenue  of $1.25 billion. Search engines on the sites narrow down the choices making it easy to choose ethnicity, height, weight, hair and eye color, body type, and location. Let’s face it, gone are the days of ‘blind dates.’

Too young for Our Time. Too old for Tinder. Too exceptional for Match…time to check out the most popular millionaire dating websites. Here are five of the top sites that I signed up on to do some research: 4MClub, Millionaire Match, Sugar Daddy for Me, Seeking Arrangements and Millionaires Club 123.

Millionaire match websites can be broken down into three categories: people searching for one-night stands, people looking for a Sugar Daddy or Mommy and matchmakers offering to find you the perfect mate. These matchmakers are strictly in the business of serious matchmaking – one site charging upwards of $30,000 for the wealthiest and most discriminating.

Let’s face it, the majority of men on these sites are looking for sex. Approximately 5 percent are lonely men looking for a companion or someone to talk to (i.e., 70 and older). One member read my description of what I was looking for in a man, along with a polite description of myself – elegant, classy and well-traveled. He messaged me with a curt comment, “Don’t you know that this is a site for sex?” No I didn’t, but now I do.

What I didn’t know going into this adventure, was that the majority of men are looking for women in their 20s, which makes us middle-aged women quite ‘old.’ I told a few of the younger contacts, “Older women are wiser and know what they want.” These sort of statements fall upon deaf ears.

My advice to women looking to find that someone special online: do check out the millionaire websites, read all of the disclaimers and look at membership costs and the number of members available for your perusal. Additionally, if the website looks cheap and/or cheesy, then so are the men that sign up on the site. Don’t trust anyone that isn’t verified on the site. The majority of the men (probably 90 percent) claim to be millionaires but haven’t been verified or approved.

And beware, there are several male members looking to have discreet rendezvous sans the wife. On the other hand, some men are looking for relationships with their wives by their side, in bed with you.

Caveat emptor: if the offer sounds too good to be true (i.e. Fantasy Island), then it isn’t true! Here is an example of a message that I received. Without further ado, a note from a very wealthy Prince Charming…note that I only printed a couple of paragraphs from the ‘letter.’

“How are you? I just read your profile and I find you to be quite interesting. I would like to know more about you. I was born and raised in Beverly Hills, where I currently reside. I am a high profile figure whose life is sometimes under a media microscope so I require someone who is discreet. I am looking for that special someone in which to enter into a mutual beneficial arrangement. I have been in many such arrangements but not of this site. I will tell you about the two most recent arrangements, one was in New York, the other in Los Angeles. The young lady in New York received an allowance of $10,000 a month.”

“One dress for each event because you cannot wear the same dress twice. You must travel all over the world with me. Another benefit to the arrangement is that I will advance your career or set you up in a business of your own so that when the arrangement ends, you can continue the lifestyle that I provided.”

Too good to be true? Yes, those types of Sugar Daddies don’t have to go looking for a female playmate. They have them lined up in their Hollywood studios.
