SugarDaddyForMe Review (2022) - Legit Sugar Site Or A Scam?

What's the point of having loads of money if you don't have a hot young girl to spend it on? This little mantra is the backbone of the sugar dating industry - transactional relationships based on giving money and receiving sex in return. In the past few years alone, many online dating sites have popped up to cater to those interested in pursuing the sugar lifestyle.

SugarDaddyForMe is one of these sugar dating sites. It's a fairly new platform with a ton of modern trappings, but does it get results? How does it compare to the other sugar dating sites on the scene? We've reviewed this site in full for your convenience. Here's the only SugarDaddyForMe review you need to read.

First Impressions

SugarDaddyForMe looks, in a word, dreadful. The SugarDaddyForMe website is very unpleasant on the eye. Cheap looking elements, mismatched color schemes, plain-looking text. It's all very amateur to say the least. It definitely won't attract many new users to the platform, especially as there are so many more appealing online dating services in the sugar niche out there.

The homepage shows a sample of the profiles on offer, broken down by sugar baby and sugar daddy categories. More astute viewers will notice that several of these profiles are fake (judging by the fact that semi-famous pornstars are apparently signed up here). This isn't a good look, especially when compared to the rest of the site's dull web design.

Below this, the site also makes some outrageous claims, like there are 1,000 new members every day. If this was the case, SugarDaddyForMe would have much more than the 3 million members it claims to have. Put simply, the site looks awful and isn't user friendly in the slightest. Immediate bad vibes for this one.

Sugar Daddy For Me Registration Process

Click the 'Join FREE' button in the top right corner to start the sign up process. You'll then be asked to input the following information:

  • Gender
  • Username
  • Email Address
  • Mobile Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Password
  • Sexual Preferences
  • Relationship Preferences (Sugar Baby or Sugar Daddy)

Verify your email and then you can create your profile and begin the online dating process. While site claims you can join for free, sending instant messages to other members requires a paid membership package. However, all women are given unlimited messaging capabilities for free. Features

SugarDaddyForMe offers mimimal features. Here's a detailed look at what's available.

Grid-style Browsing

SugarDaddyForMe mostly functions like a classic dating site. That means you can look through member's pictures and profiles at your leisure and once you land on a member that catches your eye, you can contact them through the site's messaging system. Alternatively, you can send them a "virtual kiss" to let them know you're interested.

According to the site's e-com data, the site has around 3 million registered users, and judging by the general list, these are mostly people looking for sugar daddy/sugar baby relationships. You won't find many users outside of this umbrella (sugar mommas, male sugar babies, sugar cubs and so forth).

Swipe System

For those want to utilize a more modern approach, the site also has a Tinder-style swipe system to match you with other users. Swipe right if someone takes your fancy, swipe left if they don't. Non-paying members can actually access the swiping page too, but to actually chat with matches you'll need to sign up for a paid subscription.

Additionally, you'll find the same users in the swipe section as you would browsing the site regularly. There's nothing to distinguish the two, but if you feel comfortable swiping through faces as opposed to reading bios, then the swipe system has your needs in mind.

Advanced Searching

SugarDaddyForMe has a great search function that can really help you find your perfect partner. The section is actually quite advanced, allowing users to narrow down by very specific criteria, but you can also search by keyword to make things a little easier.

Search filters include: exact location, zip code, body type, hair color, education level, University attended, income, race, ethnicity, and any keyword that might help you find a high quality match.

Secret Albums

No one wants their naked photos leaked out to the world. How many times has it happened in the past? Countless times. And in many cases it's ruined the life of the exposee in question. Naturally, people on dating sites might want to show off their fabulous figures to their chat partners, but putting them on show in your profile is a risky move.

To get around this issue, SugarDaddyForMe allows people to put their explicit snaps in private albums. Access to these secret files is only granted to those with the password, which you can give to anyone you trust enough to see you at your most primal.

Content Section

Unfortunately, we're not talking about pictures or videos (since sugar daddy sites focus more on building connections than hookups), but SugarDaddyForMe has a great section that allows users to showcase their artistic abilities or their unique insights via the written word. Blogs, art pieces, opinion pieces, whatever your flavor of art might be - as long as it's not explicit.

These little articles are useful because they all link to the author's profiles. So if there's an opinion piece or blog you really agree with, you can reach out to the user who wrote it and strike up a conversation. It's a pretty unique little feature we've not seen on any other similar site.

Pros of SugarDaddyForMe

What did we love about SugarDaddyForMe? Here's a detailed list.

Free For Sugar Babies

This entire dating site is completely free for sugar babies to use. Well, we might need to be a little more specific. It's actually free for all women, be them sugar babies or sugar mommas. It doesn't matter what sugar role they identify as, if they have a vagina, they're able to use every feature on SugarDaddyForMe at no cost.

Sugar daddies (and male sugar babies0 on the other hand will need to purchase a premium subscription in order to exchange messages. It's understandable because sugar dynamics are based around the wealthier half of the relationship covering the finances. Plus, any approach that attracts more women to the site is a good thing.

Mobile Friendly Site

SugarDaddyForMe doesn't have an app unfortunately, but its website is fully optimized for mobile usage. You can use all of the available features on mobile including the swipe system, video chat function, exchanging messages and viewing profiles in full - all of the dating fundamentals.

We do wish that the site had a mobile application because it would make things a lot easier, especially as the SD4M website is a little clunky to say the least. An app might also bring a few more (real life) people to its platform, which is never a bad thing.

3-Day Free Trial

Any online dating site that provides a free trial is worth checking out. Before you shell out for a premium membership, you'll be able to sample everything on Sugar Daddy For Me through their 3-day trial. This trial option gives you unlimited messaging, advancing searching, swiping and video chat capabilities.

We should mention that this 3-day trial will begin from the second you join SugarDaddyForMe. As soon as you start browsing, the trial will activate, so it's not like you can choose a convenient time for the trial to start. Keep this in mind before creating your Sugar Daddy For Me account.

Cons of SugarDaddyForMe

How could SugarDaddyForMe improve? Here's what we didn't love about the site.

Some Inactive and Fake Profiles

Every dating site has fake profiles, and sugar daddy dating sites are notorious for them. You'll find fakes of every type on here; scammers posing as successful men, bots posing as gorgeous young women. The whole concept of a sugar relationship naturally attracts those looking to extort money from others, so it pays to keep your wits about you.

As always, scammers tend to be easy to spot. First of all, they'll have an obviously-fake profile photo. They'll also send messages at you in abundance and they'll be sending kisses en masse. Real people don't do these things (unless they're really desperate), so keep your eyes peeled at all times.

Non paid members get access to a few features. They can browse through profiles, use limited search criteria (location, age range, gender) and match with people through the swipe system. However, if you total access to everything, including unlimited messaging, you'll need to pay your way.

This is nothing new for a sugar daddy dating website. There are zero completely free sugar daddy dating sites around. However, a lot of the other websites are more affordable. A minimum of $39.95 per month for access to a mediocre website isn't exactly a bargain.

Hard To Cancel

Canceling your SugarDaddyForMe subscription is like trying to piss through a boner - nearly impossible. The website will constantly take you in circles until you either A) get pissed off and stop trying or B) cancel it directly through your bank. You CAN do it through the SD4M page but it's a real chore.

Another way to cancel your membership is to contact the customer support team. This shouldn't really be necessary, and it's little things like this that really spoil SugarDaddyForMe as a dating site. If it took the time to remove its scammy elements from its website, more people would be willing to pay to use its features.

Premium Membership Cost

Men will need to purchase a premium membership in order to get unlimited messaging functionality. Memberships coming in three options, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Here's what they cost:

  • 3 Day Trial - No cost
  • Bronze Membership - $39.95 per month
  • Silver Membership - $44.95 per month
  • Gold Membership - $54.90 per month

With a Bronze, Silver or Gold Membership, users will get access to the following features:

  • Send and receive chat messages
  • Send and receive mail from members
  • Unlimited chat/mail history
  • Highlighted messages in others' inboxes
  • Highlighted profile in search results
  • Upload unlimited photos
  • Faster profile approvals
  • Make notes on members' profiles

Final Verdict: Is SugarDaddyForMe Legit?

While SugarDaddyForMe is indeed a legit site for sugar daddies and sugar babies, it's got enough issues to dissuade any potential member. Consumers will undoubtedly will be put off by the ugly interface, the lack of quality profiles and the high cost of becoming a member. It's not the worst site in the world, but it's far from the best.

Will you find a sugar partner on here? Yes, but it will just take a lot of work and a lot of hope. The simple fact is that SugarDaddyForMe's cons greatly outweigh its pros, and that's unacceptable in today's world of quality choices in the date site niche. Many other platforms do what SugarDaddyForMe does and does it better.
