If you’re on SeekingArrangement.com, then you’ve come to a meeting place in which the desired destination for all is a mutually beneficial arrangement with a genuine sugar(s).
It’s common for sugars to make arrangements with people they’d otherwise never come across outside the online dating Sugarbowl. Many sugars say they’re more flexible having long distance relationships with a Sugar Daddy or Sugar Baby, and many specifically seek a sugar outside of their local area.
Despite the lack of a TSA agent to accompany you on all first sugar meets, you can still use some common-sense and sugar-tested approaches to help you screen a potential SD or SB before letting them through your arrangement gates.
Here are some modern truths about screening Sugar Daddies and Sugar Babies you meet online:
Opting to Upload a Sugar Profile Photo
Over 95.4% of Sugar Babies have a picture posted on their profile. Yet only 58.5% of Sugar Daddies post a picture on their profiles. Sugar Babies can use SeekingArrangement for free as long as they have at least 1 uploaded and approved photo. Since all active Sugar Daddies (i.e., those that can send and receive messages) are premium members, they have the option of not including a profile picture.
While there are many reasons a sugar may or may not post a profile pic, here are some ways many sugars examine a photo to screen their potentials:
Detecting Fake Photos
Many sugars have noticed a correlation between very professional looking photo’s or ‘glamor shots’ and fake sugar. In order to verify whether a sugar photo is a genuine picture of a SD or SB and not an image snagged somewhere from the interwebs, many sugars use reverse image search services such as TinEye. A reverse image search can help you determine whether a profile pic is of a real person, or rather just a stolen image found online.
Recognizing Manipulated Photos
We’ve heard from many sugars who’ve wondered whether an SD or SB photo has been photoshopped or ‘touched-up’. One way to spot a manipulated photo is to zoom in on the image and look at the actual pixels. Pan the image while zoomed in and look for any distortions in the pixel layout and natural pattern. Yet unfortunately, if a photo’s been touched up with a skilled hand, it may be difficult if not impossible to detect its alteration.
Sugar Daddy Pat Down
Once you’ve decided to meet a potential sugar in-real-life (IRL), the sugar screening process can become more direct. With a chance to sit down with your potential and go over questions, as well as viewing them in-person, you may have all the opportunity you need to give the green or red light…
Yet getting physical with a sugar before an arrangement is a touchy subject in the Sugarbowl. Many sugars prefer their pre-arrangement dates be kept hands-off, yet many others are more comfortable with being physical on the 1st meet, depending on the chemistry. For sugars who know they’re not willing to be physical on a 1st meet, it may be wise to indicate that preference beforehand.
