‘Sugar daddy dating seemed like a good middle-ground – I could have fun with someone hot and she enjoyed a better lifestyle as a consequence.‘Since then I’ve had a number of relationships with girls I have met online and, until I want something more serious, it suites my lifestyle and I have met some great people.’ So, while not being the most conventional form of dating it could be arguably one of the most honest.I wasn’t quite sure if this was a post-modern comment on the randomness of online dating or if he was a victim of early onset dementia. Meanwhile their profiles demanded ‘you will be slim, attractive and available for lunchtime meet-ups’.Messages from anonymous (aka married) members saying ‘I like going out and staying in, weekends away and holidays in the sun’ were as creative as they came.I began to think that when targeting a man with dough, a girl is best off fishing in a more transparent pool – ie one that does what it says on the tin rather than masquerading as a traditional dating site.
‘I wasn’t looking for a serious relationship or to spend months formally dating but I didn’t want to pay for company either.
‘Each relationship is different but I’m very upfront about the money – the girls are there for financial help and the guys because they want someone young and hot – it’s an open arrangement.’ The downside?
Sites trading on men’s bank accounts and women’s ability to be quiet and look pretty can feel swamped with people trying their luck.
‘I am sociable, well-educated and enjoy a rich and varied social life, but would like to meet someone special who I have a connection with to share intimate moments and memorable times.
‘I’d like to meet a man who is open, kind, sensual and laid back, someone with a good sense of humour and a glass half full attitude.’ It didn’t take long for the messages to flood in but my enthusiasm was dented by the standard of ‘millionaire’.
