Last week, the new website was officially born, and with that came some changes. One change was the removal of the ominous wink — it is now simply an afterthought. It took precedent on SeekingArrangement for too long, so we made an executive decision to remove it once and for all. C’mon, the wink, it’s a tease. Teases are tempting, but only when they’re utilized correctly.
In real life, winks can get you what you want without speaking. You’re across the room, and if she’s interested and doesn’t think debris is pestering your eye, she’s likely to show interest in return. But, as we know, the online dating world does not work quite the same way.
As a Sugar Daddy, you should be confident enough to go all in — you have the power here. While a wink might get her to view your profile, a message will get her to like you. Online dating is all about making a lasting impression.
If you’re winking, you aren’t putting in enough effort. If he’s a premium or diamond member, he’s receiving more messages than he can handle. You won’t stand out with a wink because well, he’s busy reading messages from women who actually put thought into it.
Yes, winks are history, as a result, member communication will be:
Check your email, and check it often. It’ll no longer be filled to the rim with random winks from members, instead you’ll know who is viewing your profile, and who is taking initiative. The average member finds an arrangement in 5 days, so we can’t have users wasting your time.
Be upfront, be honest, and make lasting impression instead of a lazy one.
Will you miss the wink? Was it a useful way for you to show interest, or are you downright relieved it’s abolished?
