A particular niche in online dating that’s exploded in popularity over the last few years is that of sugar daddy dating websites.
A Sugar daddy dating site has two main groups of users.
First up, you have wealthy men.
The second group is young, beautiful women or sugar babies, as they are known.
These are beneficial relationships in which both groups provide something the other is looking for, for example, financial support and companionship.

Who Is It For/Demographics?
SugarDaddyMeet is not a flash-in-the-pan dating site, that’s for sure.
Owned by SuccessfulMatch.com, in my opinion, it’s the best site on the web today to help facilitate a sugar baby/older men hookup dynamic (like BeNaughty or Ashley Madison), and not with long-term relationships in mind (like Tinder or eHarmony)
There’s no doubt in my mind that SugarDaddyMeet.com is a high-quality sugar dating site.
It has everything you need to find the best possible matchups, no matter which side of the sugar dating coin you are from.
Interestingly, this site only operates in 20 of the wealthiest countries in the world which further helps the dynamic of wealthy men looking for sugar babies and vice versa.
SugarDaddyMeet | By the numbers
Looking at some demographics behind the site, we can see just how popular it is.
And the more users you have, the more effective a site like this is going to be, right?
So here’s a quick breakdown:
- SugarDaddyMeet has over 5 million users
- Around 1 million of these are wealthy men
- 4 million of these are sugar babies
- Well over 1 million users are from the United States
- Around 10 000 users log into the site each day
- That’s 300 000 every month
A niche dating site with 5 million users?
Now that’s extremely impressive, right?
And it’s one of the reasons why SugarDaddyMeet.com stands out for me in this area of online dating.
SugarDaddyMeet | Gender ratio and user age ranges
When it comes to this particular dating niche, it’s usually the case to see far more sugar babies signing up for profiles than sugar daddies.
SugarDaddyMeet.com doesn’t buck the trend.
And as we have seen while looking at user numbers on the site, it’s at a ratio of close to 3:1:
- 70% of users are female
- 30% of users are male
But what does that mean at the end of the day?
Well, if you are a wealthy man that’s looking to sign up as a sugar daddy on the site, there are lots of potential sugar babies to vie for your attention.
Now let’s focus on the age ranges of users.
Well, looking at them just backs up the fact that young women dominate the site.
18-24-year-olds females account for 30% of all users on SugarDaddyMeet.
Around 66% of all male users are between the ages of 35 and 54.
But here’s a full breakdown of all the age ranges on site.
- 18-24 year-olds (30% of users of which all are female)
- 25-34 year-olds (22% of users of which 20% are female and 2% male)
- 35-44 year-olds (18% of users of which 12% are female and 6% male)
- 45-54 year-olds (20% of users of which 8% are female and 12% male)
- 55 and older (10% of users of which 2% are female and 8% male)
So yes, the age breakdown of users certainly fits in with the gender ratio breakdown.
Interestingly, there are female users that are older than 45 years old.
This could be attributed to the fact that some men aren’t necessarily looking for younger women but those their age.
It isn’t sugar mommies looking for their own sugar babies because the site doesn’t allow that.
But enough with the figures, let’s move onto just how SugarDaddyMeet.com works, starting with registering as a user.
Ease Of Use
The sign-up process could not be more user-friendly, that’s for sure.
The landing page for the SugarDaddyMeet website is pretty inviting and I found a ton of relevant information on it, including success stories.
So if you want to know a little more about the site, take a few minutes of your time to have a look.
You can always get to your Sugar Daddy Meet login afterward, right?
That process starts with a choice.
Are you signing up as sugar daddy or sugar baby?
Once you’ve made your relevant selection, the registration process for your profile begins.
Interestingly, SugarDaddyMeet has users agree to a range of guidelines before they can start the process.
I guess that this helps moderators on the site get across right from the start that any poor behavior or breaking the rules won’t be tolerated.
One of these guidelines is that the site is about meeting face-to-face and not online-only, which I found interesting.
SugarDaddyMeet | The registration process
All modern dating sites offer a social media signup of some kind, be it Google, Facebook or your Apple account.
In this case, it’s Facebook and it just helps speed up the registration process a little.
Don’t worry, nothing is ever posted by the site on your Facebook profile.
If you prefer not to associate a social media account with a dating site, and many people do, you are going to continue the Sugar Daddy Meet login process by providing an email address.
Here’s all the information that you need to give at the start:
- Your gender and if you are a sugar daddy or sugar baby
- Your age
- Your email address
The second stage of registration needs:
- Your first name (which won’t be displayed on your profile)
- Your username (which will be displayed on your profile)
- A password
Now comes the profile creation aspect of registration.
Not all dating sites do this but as SugarDaddyMeet sees completed profiles as a critical component of their site, you need to complete it.
The information you will provide here includes:
- Your location (including postal code)
- Your annual income
- Appearance (including height, body type and ethnicity)
- Your current relationship status
- Profile photo
- Profile headline
- About me section
- About my match section
You will then need to provide your phone number, so you can verify your account.
SugarDaddyMeet has taken a different approach to profile verification and uses your phone number and email address.
This will certainly will help chance away those wanting to scam others using fake profiles.
And that’s registration completed.
If you’ve done everything right, you will be taken straight to the website.
SugarDaddyMeet |First impressions and finding your way around
So let’s talk a little about the overall design of the site at first.
Well, if there’s one complaint I have is that it’s just a little boring unless you love the colors black and white.
Because they dominate the site.
The only flash of color you will see is in the profile photos of other users.
At the end of the day, however, it’s not how a dating site looks but more, how a dating site operates.
That’s something we will get to a little later.
The homepage of Sugar Daddy Meets includes a modular design that you will find right through the site.
You have three panels.
The panel on the left includes access to your profile as well as a ton of secondary menus.
The panel in the middle includes a quick search bar and the latest activities of users on the site presented in a social media style feed.
The panel on the right includes links to other user profiles, for example, those who have just signed up.
You will also notice the main menu system that’s at the top of the page.
These menus are:
- Home: Clicking here will take you back to the homepage described above
- Discover: This takes you to SugarDaddyMeet.com‘s search engine from where you will start your journey to find wealthy men or sugar babies.
- My Lists: Want to know who has viewed your profile, liked your profile or favorited you amongst a host of other information? You’ll find that here.
- Community: This includes a range of community-based features including first date ideas that users can comment on. That’s not all, you can also access various forums here as well as user blogs. There is even dating advice for sugar daddies if they are new to the game.
- Messages: Messages that you send to other users as well as those that you receive will all be found under this menu.
As you can see, there’s plenty more than meets the eye on SugarDaddyMeet, that’s for sure and you will find many sub-menus under all those menus too.
You will also notice some icon menus on the right-hand side of the screen.
These are your notifications, a link to your profile and then the upgrade menu.
That takes you to the sign-up page for premium membership, something we will talk about a little later in the review.
You can also find links to customer support and FAQs should you have any questions that you need to be answered while using the site.
I just want to mention the secondary menu system that you will find on the left-hand side of the screen.
It’s one that you may use every now and again, but certainly not as often as the menus that we’ve just covered.
Here you have a quick link to your messages but you can also see who has liked your profile, who has like your photos, winked at you, favorited your profile and more.
The profiles on SugarDaddyMeet are packed with information.
While you will have filled in much of yours during the registration process, it’s not complete.
Those behind the site are pretty big on having completed profiles so take the time to finish yours.
Let’s talk a little about the extras you can find here.
- The profile section with all the information about a person
- The activities section shows their activity on SugarDaddyMeet
- The comments section is where you can find comments left by other users, even testimonials.
There’s another section you may notice called “Fun Questions“.
These are questions posed by the site that users have taken the time to answer.
It’s an excellent way to find out a little more about them and you should answer some on your profile too.
Lastly, sugar babies also have a wishlist where they highlight items they’d like to receive as gifts.
Is there a SugarDaddyMeet app?
Yes, there is but only if you are an Android user.
At this point, there is no IOS app and no indication if there will be one in the future.
Also, the app is not called SugarDaddyMeet.
That’s just shortened to SDM.
Interestingly, it’s billed as an “upscale millionaire dating app” and not a sugar dating one.
And when you sign on, it’s as a male or female, not a sugar daddy, sugar baby as per the website.
There are fewer features here as well than what the website presents but if you’d prefer to use the app from time to time, it’s functional enough and provides you with the tools to find matchups and communicate with them.
With some insight into how to sign-up for a profile on SugarDaddy Meet and to navigate the site, it’s time to look into what it offers.
I just want to start by saying that with over four million profiles for sugar babies and a million sugar daddy profiles, the potential to find a matchup here is huge.
But, as with other dating sites, that can often be negated with a poor matchup algorithm or a search engine that doesn’t provide you with much versatility.
So just how effective is SugarDaddyMeet.com in helping you find what you are looking for?
SugarDaddyMeet | Searching for the right matchup
There are a few ways that you can go about looking for your older man/sugar baby.
- Matchups provided by the site
- Searching for matchups of your own
- Browsing various profiles highlighted by the site
Let’s take a closer look at all three of these.
Yes, SugarDaddyMeet will provide you with potential matchups and the best way to find them is by playing “Spark”.
This is a roulette-style matchup game that’s found on just about every modern dating website around these days.
The matchups that you see here should meet the requirements you’ve stipulated in terms of age range, location and more.
You can simply move to the next profile or like those that you’d possibly want to get to know better.
That’s the same as going to their profile and clicking on the Like button.
It’s a fun way of seeing what’s available but if you are anything like me, you are going to want to search yourself, right?
With a free account, your ability to search is limited, which is often the case with online dating sites.
You can search using the following parameters:
- What you are looking for (sugar daddy or sugar baby)
- The age range you’d prefer
- The location they should be from
It’s limited but turns up excellent returns.
Well, it did for me but I am sure you will have the same results, especially in major cities.
Paid membership brings advanced search filters.
- Annual income
- If they have a photo
- Appearance (broken down into separate parameters like height, body type, ethnicity)
- Habits (do they smoke or drink)
- Relationship status
- What they are looking for
- If they have children
- This also allows you to search for a specific keyword that could prove useful at times.
Better still, premium membership also allows you to save your searches which is a feature many online daters like.
That’s not all when it comes to searching, however.
You can also search via:
- New users that have joined the site
- Compatible and reverse matches
- Premium members
- Verified sugar babies/daddies
What’s on offer here is more than many dating sites have when it comes to search options.
Lastly, you are free to click on any profiles you will see on the site, for example, the new members highlighted on the homepage.
SugarDaddyMeet | Making contact
Once the site has provided you with some matchups, you’ve reached the point where you’d want to reach out to them, right?
Perhaps you are even adventurous enough to send out a “let’s meet” message.
But how do you reach out to others?
Are there more options than just sending a message?
Well, you can like or favorite profiles as an indication that you are interested in someone.
You can send a wink as well.
But there’s a massive advantage if you are a sugar baby.
And that’s the fact that if someone messages you, you can reply to them.
Yes, as a sugar baby, there is no need to take out membership on the site to use it effectively.
As a sugar daddy though, well, you are going to need to be a member because it’s going to be very rare to find someone messaging you.
I’m not saying it doesn’t happen but that’s not really how the site operates.
There’s also an instant chat function that you can use to get to know someone better.
It’s a little faster than sending messages.
Just a word of warning when it comes to scams, it’s not only sugar daddies that can fall for them.
A new trend sees scammers starting sugar daddy profiles promising to send other users money if they purchase them a gift card on various online sites.
And then they never send the money once they obtain that gift card.
Just think about it.
Why would a wealthy sugar daddy ask you for money?
As a sugar daddy, you are going to have to take out membership on the site to use it effectively, especially if you want to message a sugar baby you’d like to get to know better.
Membership brings with it other key features, so let’s look at what some of those are.
1. Profile boosting
Membership means your profile is boosted in other users’ search returns.
When you meet someone’s specific requirements, your profile will feature right at the top of their searches, along with any other members.
From time to time, you may also be highlighted as a featured member on the site.
2. Become a certified sugar daddy/sugar baby
Members, both sugar babies and daddies can certify their profiles.
This is an indication that your profile is genuine and you are who you say you are.
Many people only want to deal with others that are certified as a way to avoid scammers running fake profiles.
3. Advance search options
We’ve already covered it above but it’s worth mentioning the advanced search options again.
That’s just because there are so many of them available to members.
It’s a great tool for helping you to tweak those searches to provide the exact kinds of matchups you are looking for.
4. Extra privacy settings
Membership also provides extra privacy settings.
This is for your profile as well as any photos that you upload on the site.
5. See last login details
Often underrated as an excellent dating site tool, the ability to see when someone was last online means that you don’t chase up dead profiles.
And by that, I mean users who have logged in for months, possibly even years.
These are just some of the key features on offer for members.
For me, the chance to verify your profile is of utmost importance.
No matter if you are a sugar baby or a sugar daddy, a verified profile means that you can interact with others who are verified too.
So we’ve seen everything that SugarDaddyMeet has to offer.
And it’s fairly spectacular, that’s for sure.
But as a sugar daddy, you will need a membership to use the site to its full potential, especially if you want to contact other users.
Here’s a breakdown of the membership options available as well as what it’s going to cost you.
- 1-month membership: $50
- 3-month membership: $90 ($30 per month)
- 6-month membership: $144 ($24 per month)
The month-to-month option is a little expensive, that’s for sure.
But, if you think about it, the sugar daddies who are the most likely to pay for membership won’t worry to pay $50 per month.
Also, the extended options offer some significant discounts if that’s what you’d prefer.
Payment options are plentiful too with the most popular being by credit card, PayPal and direct debit.
Conclusion and Overall Rating
Thanks for taking the time out to read this Sugar Daddy Meet review.
Sites like this and Seeking Arrangement are part of an online dating niche that’s going to continue to grow at a steady rate, that’s for sure.
As I said earlier in the review, for me, Sugar Daddy Meet is the top sugar dating site available online today.
It has so many excellent extras that you have at your disposal as a premium member to help you find the perfect matchup.
An impressive search engine with advanced search parameters helps in that regard too.
The real plus point, however, is verified profiles, for both sugar babies and sugar daddies alike.
Sugar dating is the perfect place for scammers to take advantage of others but with verified profiles, you know that the moderators of the site have thoroughly checked out each individual.
As for an overall rating, Sugar Daddy Meet gets an excellent 4.75 out of 5.
