Sugar Daddie Overview
For 10 years, Sugar Daddie has been a leader of sugar daddy sites. This dating site is for wealthy men who know what they want, and attractive women who also know what they want. While they are known as a sugar daddy dating site, they also cater to romantic relationships. With features such as instant chat and a forum and prices that are much more attractive than other sugar daddy sites, Sugar Daddie is a site that stands out from the crowd. If you want to find someone to enjoy the finer things in life, this site’s reputation, continuous media exposure, strict profile guidelines, and satisfied users, will ensure that it is always full of both sugar daddies and sugar babies looking for a mutually beneficial relationship.
Sign Up Process
When you sign up, you will notice that there are two options for gender. Female, which they call a sugar babe, and male, which they call a sugar daddy. This means that if you are a sugar mama or male sugar baby, you seem to be out of luck.
When signing up, make sure to select the appropriate relationship you are looking for. You have the option to be in a sugar daddy relationship or, if you want, you can choose ‘not limited to a sugar daddy relationship’.
Unlike other sites, all fields, including body type, eye color, and education have to be filled out before you can move into the website, this makes the sign-up process take a little longer than many other dating sites. Besides, you have to activate your account through your email after you sign up.
As a sugar daddy, you have some extra fields to fill in during the signup process, including occupation, yearly income, and estimated net worth.
One note worth mentioning is that our profile was not approved because we selected too little hobbies. It is a weird reason to reject a profile, but it was easy enough to fix. We just had to select more interests than what they recommended.
You can create an account for free. It allows you to use the site and search members. But, if you want to access the features, then you must become an upgraded member.

There are a few things to note when it comes to payments. First, Sugar Daddie does say that they have the right to change the subscription fee at any time, but they will give a warning before any changes take effect. Second, membership does not renew, which means that you will have to renew your subscription manually. Lastly, there are no refunds on memberships, so it is important to make sure you really want a membership before signing up.
One of the best features is the ability to chat instantly with other members. While this is a paid feature, it is something that can help you get to know other members quickly without having to call or meet them. Instant chat allows you to get a feel for the person’s tone, interests, and desires, and it allows you the freedom to engage further with someone you like or use the ‘block’ feature before you get more involved with someone you are not feeling good about.
On Sugar Daddie, you can find a bunch of forum posts and topics. You can also ask anything you want to ask in that forum, such as what attracts a sugar daddy to a sugar baby, or what a sugar baby expects from a sugar daddy. Or, you can just talk about your pet. The only rules are that you can’t be negative, spammy, or use the forum to find hookups or one night stands.
The good news is that when you participate in the forums, certain users (who are looking for someone like you) can click on you to be taken to your profile and learn more about you. It is an additional way to advertise yourself, so make good use of the forum section.
Besides, every profile shows what forum topics have been contributed to. It means that if you meet a sugar daddy or sugar baby that has been active on the forums, you can go there and get a sense of who they are, how they interact with others, and whether or not you want to contact them.
Another interesting feature of Sugar Daddie is the flashing notification that you have an email. It is kind of exciting to see that you have a new message in this way. While this is not a significant feature, it helps spike the excitement around meeting a sugar daddy or sugar baby.

Room For Improvement
As of now, the only countries that are allowed are the United States, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany, Netherlands, and Switzerland. They plan to expand, but for now it is limited to those 7 countries.
Also, we noticed during our Sugar Daddie review that there was supposed to be a list of cities who use their site according to a link at the bottom of their page, but there are a lot of blanks on that page. The USA and UK cities are filled in, but the other countries are left out. It may be wise for them to fill that out thoroughly so that users can see if their city is listed on the page, this is kind of a weird error for a famous sugar daddy dating site.
Lastly, their blog section is not very user-friendly. Even though it has been updated lately, you can’t search for a topic of interest because there are no navigational links, such as ‘search’ or ‘categories’. It is another design issue that could easily be fixed, but for some reason, they are choosing to leave the blog basic and straightforward.
Sugar Daddie claims they have thousands of people on at any given time, and further prove that with their visible online feature, which shows you how many members are online and their profiles.
Interestingly, if you check out it in Alexa, you will find that there are slightly more females on the site than males, but the majority of users have attended college or graduate school and are browsing from home. It may mean that there are a lot of college students on Sugar Daddie, but the fact that no one is browsing from school points to that it is more likely there are a lot of entrepreneurs on the site who are both female and male.
The majority of the visitors come from the United States, with Canada coming in second. The United Kingdom is a close third to Canada. And, India is in fourth, even though that country is not included in Sugar Daddie. From experience, that means that the top three countries are active on the site while the visitors from India are likely affiliates trying to promote the site.
Ease Of Use
Sugar Daddie is very easy to use, and anyone – whether they have experience with sugar daddy sites or not – will find this dating site very easy to navigate through. However, because of the font they use, it can sometimes be hard to read things on the site.
Search is free and easy to use. You can search by country, ethnicity, height, age, hair color, body type, location, and whether or not the member has a photo.
During our Sugar Daddie review, we narrowed down the search filters to see how many results we would get with very specific requirements. As far as searching for sugar babies went, we found that it was harder to find older women. However, there were many younger women, and this means there are a lot of younger women on the site ready to meet a sugar daddy or a man looking for a relationship. Alternatively, when searching for men, it didn’t matter what filters we used or how tightly we used them, there were always results.
Safety And Privacy
There are no verification measures, which means that members don’t have to verify who they are, whether or not their picture is really of them, and whether or not their income is what they claim it to be. Furthermore, there are no criminal checks done on members.
All of that means that you have to follow some online dating safety guidelines when interacting with members. Do not give out personal information, such as your address, place of work, or real name, until you have met with a member and developed some trust with them. Also, when you do meet for the first time, make sure it is in a public area instead of a remote place or one of your homes.
Sugar Daddie is meant to be dark and professional looking, but it is kind of distracting. For example, you may have a hard time reading the first page because the font is hard to read. For a sugar daddy dating site, they should have a better design regarding readability.
However, the navigational menus and layout are perfect. Both allow you to navigate easily through the features of the site, search for profiles, check out profiles, contact, chat, and update your profile.
You can easily contact customer service through the ‘contact’ button in the top menu bar. It is an instant feedback form that links to your profile. However, that is the only option that you can get in touch with them.
Our review turned up a disappointing aspect, which was no verification for members. We feel this can be a huge benefit to a sugar daddy dating site because it increases the level of trust and authenticity. But, other than that, Sugar Daddie has a lot of benefits to it that could help you find the perfect relationship.
For instance, the instant messaging feature and forum feature can help you get to know other members better and put yourself out there for others to see.
There are plenty of people on Sugar Daddie at any given time and every search we tried turned up at least a few results – which says a lot considering we restricted some of our searches a certain age, height, and even hair color.
In the end, Sugar Daddie is a site that you should try if you are looking for a mutually beneficial relationship or a more traditional relationship. It is cheaper than many other sugar daddy dating sites, and you could end up walking away with a match quite quickly.
