Sugar Baby College Account Updates

image

As we continue to improve the user experience on SA, we’ve made some changes to how we verify Sugar Baby College Premium accounts. Every year after a college Premium account is created, we’re asking the user to validate their student email address to continue receiving the upgraded account features and the “College” badge on their profile.

Why the change?

There are a couple reasons for this change. The first and perhaps most important is to ensure the “College” badge is accurate and trustworthy. Since Premium college accounts don’t currently expire, a user can claim to be a college student well after they’re no longer in college.

The second reason is to eliminate inactive college members from showing in the “Featured Results” section. This is an effort to improve user experience across the board and mitigate the chances of interacting with an inactive profile. This site update is truly advantageous to all active members.

What you need to know

Each year following the initial Sugar Baby college upgrade, users with a College Premium account will be sent an email asking them to re-verify access to their college email account. Users will have two weeks to verify their student email address before being automatically switched to a Basic Sugar Baby account.

As long as each affected user has access to their student email address, their College Premium account will remain active. If users miss the email or forget to verify their email address in time, they can still log in and resend the verification email — even after the two weeks has lapsed — and be upgraded again after verification.

      In my area, the ratio between SB’s and SD’s must be a thousand to one. You’re in a herd, basically.

    • sd with open eyes says:

      There could be many reasons for your lack of success:

      1) Are you in an area with very few Sugar Daddies?

      2) Are there things in your description categories that many Sugar Daddies would filter out or find undesirable (having dependent children, married but looking, heavy smoker, overweight, etc.)?

      3) Are there things in your profile picture that many Sugar Daddies would consider red flags (tattoos, piercings, guy obviously cropped out of the picture, etc.)?

      4) Are there things in your description and what you are looking for that many Sugar Daddies might find unappealing (platonic/online only, tragic backstory, hints of dangerous ex-boyfriends, excluding age ranges, demanding men of certain body type, poor spelling, bad grammar, run on sentences, endlessly talking about what you want and no mention of what you can provide)?

      5) If Sugar Daddies are sending you messages, are your replies a turn off (one word answers, never asking questions about the Sugar Daddy, never showing energy or enthusiasm, rude answers)?

      • Anonymous says:

        As a SD, one big turnoff for me, is a pic taken in a mirror showing a backdrop of a pigsty of a bedroom, looking like a clothes bomb went off in it and trash strewn about all over the place. Speaks a lot about her personal habits.

      • Alternatedating says:

        Those one word answers … drive me nuts. I’m only interested in intelligent women and the inability to engage in minimal discussions knocks someone off my list, regardless of level of attractiveness.

    • Edgar says:

      I think your profile is very atractive, but… while you seem really an atractive , intelligent and intense woman, also you seem to be someone that a SD won´t get relaxed with! Let me explain. The idea of (At least for me) a SB is to have someone to get relax with. Interesting talks, dinners, sex, etc… For many, talking about oppressed and marginalized populations, rape, etc… are conversations that evethough are important and interesting, are conversations that stress anybody. Also, many sucessfull SD doesn´t have empaty with the oppressed, because they are looked as “the opressors”, so talking with someone that supports them, might seems that you are going to be fighting rather that just getting relaxed….. It also, kind of doesn´t seems logic someone looking as SD while supporting the oppressed. I hope ths could be of help to you!

    why is it so hard for a woman of color to find a sugar daddy on here?

    • sd with open eyes says:

      A lot of women of all races, ages, and sizes have trouble finding a sugar daddy. Why? The answer is usually in the mirror. If not there, then try reading your profile from the point of view of a prospective sugar daddy.

      • Middle finger says:

        That’s really fucked up to say that “The answer is usually in the mirror” smh. No one can help that they are a person of color yet you “sd with open eyes” & other sd’s make it seem like it’s a bad thing to be of color & have a white sd. Your fucked up like the rest of them. You sd’s say you don’t want to be used for your money alone or be judged as only wanting sex then don’t jude people of color as having bad attitudes or having a disease. You & the rest are prejudice as fu^k. If a black chick won’t do everything you want or you ASSume they all have attitudes then guess what you kick them to the curb & replace them with a white, asian or latina. you “men” are a$$holes.

      • sd with open eyes says:

        @Middle finger: A proper education and reading comprehension would help as well. “The answer is usually in the mirror” applies to “women of all races, ages, and sizes”. If you are not good looking then you will do worse competing against women who are good looking. Also, if you are stupid and write at a second grade level you will do worse against women who are smart and articulate.

    You do realize that people have access to student email long after they stop attending, right? In some cases, forever.

    Am not sure how you think this new update is going to be effective at all.

      That’s the point of the update, sir. Every year they need to verify the email address (not everyone has eternal access).

        Hi Bianca. I’ve a vagina, and am most certain that some universities give lifelong email access.

        @anonymous

        Correct. The finger test is the only way to know for sure. I could grin and bear it if ya wanna. 😉

      • Bianca says:

        As I said, not EVERYONE has access to their university emails forever. Relax, troll.

      • yougottabekiddingme says:

        Hi again, Bianca. Thank you for clarifying.

        I imagine some collages don’t. Can’t win ’em all :(

        I have no interest in using my .edu email to save $9.95 per month on a premium membership that’s really doesn’t offer many more perks than a regular SB account. I do, however, understand that for some the struggle is real.

        Nope…can’t win ’em all

        My university only gives 3 months access to our student emails after we graduate and I know many U.K. universities are the same

      • yougottabekiddingme says:

        Thanks for sharing, anon. My university offers lifelong access. Am studying in the states. My good friend’s university offers access for 3 months after graduation, but then offers lifelong email forwarding. She still has access to a community college email where she took classes that weren’t offered online at her university. She didn’t and won’t graduate from there (never intended to), hasn’t taken a class there in almost 3 years, and still has access. Technically, she couldve enrolled for one semester, taken Freshman Exploration or a couple of placement tests, dropped out, and gotten 2 premium SB accounts. Ain’t life grand.

        I misspoke when I said that Im not sure how SA thinks the update will be effective at all. It will be effective some, I suppose…assuming that they actually implement their own policy (their track record is pretty shoddy). I get that not all colleges give extended access. I guess my thing is (and don’t worry, Bianca, I’m way relaxed)…

        I doubt this update has as much to do with the validity of college enrollment as it does with closing the loophole of free premium membership. Benjamins and stuff.

        If it’s really about the authenticity and accurate representation of membership, how about requiring a mandatory last login time after which an account is deactivated until the person logs in again. How about suspending the accounts of fraudsters, rinsers, and people with flower halos and bunnyfaces. Why clutter the interface with dormant, useless profiles that contribute to the tedious filtering of search results, and the diminishing quality of user experience.

        There are ways that SA could improve this site…actual updates and upgrades it could make…if it really wanted to. This uni-baby update, in my opinion, is yet another tactic in their numbers and dollars game.

        @Bianca…not trolling, and nothing against you. Sorry if I came across as angst. Ate a triple-decker pb&j, and took a nap. I feel much better now.

  45. Anonymous says:

    Wow. I was off the site for a bit and I owe blog readers an apology. I went on and on about how it was them, not the site, that was the problem.

    I stand completely corrected.

    The latest crop of girls (I was one of the very first SDs on this site when it opened) are… horrible.

    I’ve interacted with many, have over 2000 unread messages in my inbox in however long it takes for them to automatically delete them. Out of hundreds of girls I’m talking to, over 50% are certifiably insane. They don’t give out their number or email for me to send pics. In this day and age, you can block anyone with the touch of a button on your phone. Or… you can get a texting app. What’s the problem?

    Since this site keeps and reads all messages, I’m not comfortable putting my SD offer into a message here that is kept in a database kept at this company. I prefer to keep my communication discreet, private an direct.

    This has never been an issue as long as this site existed. Until just now. Over 50% of the girls are going nuts when I say I’d like to send pics and discuss privately. They respond with anger, ignorance and general insanity. What happened? It’s not SA’s fault of course. It’s something wrong with society in general. SA only reflects what is going in in the world, it doesn’t create it.

    Since this site started, I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with it. It’s been amazing. I am thankful for it. However, the number of ego maniacs on this site is now out of control. Hopefully, a lot of these new girls go on hissy fits and break the rules so they get kicked off. They are diluting the pool of genuine, good people who have always been here.

    • yougottabekiddingme says:

      Hi anonymous,

      I think what you are experiencing is not necessarily a damned society, but the technological day in which we live…which could arguably equate to a damned society depending not who you ask.

      Thing is, Internet and social media use, for the most part, preceded users’ foresight into the implications on privacy. There isn’t a whole lot you need to know about a person to be able to discover/uncover very significant details of their life online.

      I, personally, only use identifying information on sites where it’s absolutely necessary. This site is not one of them. My name, number, email address, occupation, etc, are not things I discuss through the SA interface. I would recommend using an Internet phone number and an email address that you do not use for other purposes. I don’t surround myself in a bubble of distrust, but due diligence and precaution are important to me. I am actually more comfortable meeting someone in public for a blind date than disclosing my personal information to someone I don’t know.

      I do not send pictures, and I’m fine with not seeing a pot’s photo. Ugly is as ugly does, and the proof is certainly in the pudding. I’m more likely to be endeared to a less attractive man who is otherwise a total package than to tolerate a more attractive man who has beef jerky for brains or a rotten attitude.

      Also, I precede under the premise that personal information is a matter of privy. I do not ask, and am absolutely discreet and regarding if it is shared.

      Unfortunately, some can not discern discretion from duplicity. Some absolutely will not meet without seeing a photo or having your personal information. Some presume that because they’ve given you access to (or have offered to send)their private photos, that you should be receptive and reciprocate, and if not then it can only mean that you’re fat, fugly or fake. Some have no picture of their own, and are not open to a phone call even. Misaligned preferences, missed opportunity or dodged bullet? I dunno.

      Sometimes guys will send a phone number in the first message asking to text. Ive no interest in getting to know someone via text. I prefer to exchange a few messages, talk over the phone, talk over Skype (if they’re most comfortable with that before meeting), then meet in person. I know people have reservations about skype, and that it’s possible to record Skype calls, take screen shots etc. But im more comfortable with a Skype call after having an engaging phone conversation where I am able to get a good feel on a person.

      Also, I think that some prefer messaging through the site initially as an added precaution during the initial stage of seeing if you have similar interests. I don’t necessarily want to share even a throw away web number with someone I’ve no interest in getting to know further.

      I think for some people, there are some things that they want to know upfront without exception. Am I physically attracted to your photo? Are you open to physical intimacy? Are you willing to give my desired allowance? I think the attitude is, if not why bother? I imagine that there is a sense of hesitancy (and urgency) perpetuated by the experience of shade and misrepresentation.

      I try to be patient and flexible in building trust and rapport, but there are some cases in which I’m not (and some pots aren’t) open to compromising. Stalemate…no one wins, but at least no one loses, I guess. At any rate, I think a polite declination is the best way to handle impasse. Am sorry that’s not been your experience as of late.

    • Alternatedating says:

      Not sure what you define as a grandpa. It seems to me that it would be pretty unlikely to find a normal guy on here who is under 40. There are certainly normal reasonably attractive successful guys around in their 30’s but they don’t need to be on this site to date college students.

      As for guys pretending to be celebs, I’ve never heard that one from any women I’ve met on here discussing their experience. Complaints about guys lying about their financial status, yes, but not the celeb line. On the other hand, there are lots of “professional models” on the SB side, not that I’m opposed to that unless they have unreasonable expectations.

    There are hundredths of SBs whom we constantly see in the listings, not only college students, who have not accessed this site for months at a time. As a SD, I can message them only to see the “delivered” label not read for weeks, months, or not at all. Those unused accounts are also taking up “space” in the listing. I usually stop reading profiles I see that have not been visited in more than a month. It tells me the SB is not interested, not longer looking, or found something else. Can we have a requirement for those free SB accounts to login and check messages at least once every month? That shouldn’t be difficult, and it surely will help to eliminate many SB who are not serious about finding an arrangement.

    • FedUpAnon says:

      First, er firstly I think these these accounts should be removed from featured areas. Secondly, I often have replies months or years after I have sent them, so making them inactive is not always desirable.
