Photos: Top Cities for Sugar Daddies -- and Where Denver Finishes
Seeking Arrangement is devoted to pairing self-proclaimed sugar daddies (and a few sugar mommies) with students and other young people willing to trade companionship for financial support. It's a controversial service in some quarters, but also a popular one in Colorado. Earlier this year, Seeking Arrangement revealed that CU-Boulder was among the top ten sugar daddy schools in the country -- and now, the site lists Denver among the top fifteen sugar daddy cities. Photos, data and details below.
For some background on Seeking Arrangement, here's an excerpt from the aforementioned February post:
Jennifer Gwynn, director of public relations for Seeking Arrangement, notes that the company "has been around since 2007. Our founder and CEO" -- Brandon Wade -- "was a self-proclaimed nerd who had a lot of money, but he didn't have the social skills to go along with it. So he created this website off his own needs....
"When things got tough for college students, we had a lot of students sign up," Gwynn notes. "Now, about 42 percent of our total population is college students, with most of them between the ages of nineteen and 21. I would imagine that after their sophomore year, they're looking for more than their schools can offer them in terms of financial aid.
"There's an overwhelming problem with the cost of education," she goes on, "so this is an alternative solution. We definitely have our critics, but really, we're just providing another resource -- connecting students with people who may be able to help them out in ways the schools or the government may not be able to anymore."

While both men and women are welcome to sign up at Seeking Arrangement, there's definitely a disparity in numbers. As Gwynn acknowledges, "there are about eight girls for every guy on the site -- so it's harder for girls to find what they're looking for right away, because there's such high demand.
"There are 2.7 million members worldwide," she adds, "so you should come in knowing it's not an instant gratification thing. It's just like any dating website: You need to find the right arrangement. And that could take a little longer if you're female."
As for guys, Gwynn stresses that "there definitely are sugar mommies, but they're somewhat elusive. They're very easily pleased, more monogamous, and they've got their pick. There are probably about twenty guys for each sugar mommy to pick from."
Below, check out Seeking Arrangement data for the top fifteen cities, featuring factoids such as the average sugar daddy's age, net worth and "assistance" figure -- and that's per month, the site's reps swear. Also included are images from the Seeking Arrangement Facebook page.
