I just got a press release in my inbox for a new site that has launched called SugarSugar.com.
Guess what it is for?
In their words: "merging generous sugar daddies with beautiful sugar babies."
Yes. You read that right. It is designed to hook gold diggers up with foolish men, eager to spend their money on someone who doesn't love them.

"yikes" is right!
|this is not new.... on Dec 13, 2010 @ 03:56 pm|
These sites have been around for awhile. They are just kept on the 'down-low'. Then people find out about it, the site gets harassed, shuts down, and reappears under a different name in the future.
Sad, isn't it?
|Ridiculous... on Dec 13, 2010 @ 04:00 pm|
There's also a site called beautifulpeople.com where only "beautiful people" are allowed to join. When you sign up, you're asked to submit a photo of yourself that the other members will rate. If you "pass", you may join the site...
It's appalling, really...

It isn't just wealthy men looking for younger partners to pamper. There are literally hundreds of sites dedicated to older women (and their fans) which promote 'cougar-relationships'. Granted, the names of these websites alone can make any women cringe, but ladies, I ask you this...would you in your 35 singledom use websites such as the following to find your next partner?
|wow on Dec 13, 2010 @ 05:10 pm|
Have any of you ladies heard of the Puma? A Puma is a woman in her 30's who dates a guy in his 20's.
And I don't know about online dating services in general. What happened to meeting people in real life? I really wouldn't want to date someone who's in it just because I happen to be a wealthy 30-40'ish single woman.
|Ya I'm on there all the time on Dec 15, 2010 @ 04:18 pm|
The slogan really grosses me out: "merging generous sugar daddies with beautiful sugar babies"
To be honest it makes me really uncomfortable when I get "looks" from men who are old enough to be my father or grandfather - it just seems really unnatural...
|Guess I was a Puma! on Dec 15, 2010 @ 11:53 pm|
I was 30 when my (then) 23 year old husband picked me up in a bar. Now 12 years later, long married and a 7 year old son...wouldnt change a thing. All the guys my age, back then, were like old men falling asleep in front of the TV every evening and not wanting to commit to marriage and children - too much of the 'get the milk for free' attitude. I still prefer guys a decade younger than me, but am old enough to get the old men checking me out too.
Personally I wouldnt knock getting set up with a Sugar Daddy - just cant since Im already married and not the physical standard they tend to look for :)

totally tap that!!! rawr..!! just kidding lol :P
Guppy: your love story is so awesome!! love really has no age :-) I think the 'yikes' factor in what Ali is showing is because it's so calculated! I'm sure you and your hubby fell in love with e/other, you didn't seek him out only because he was young and he didn't seek you out only because you were older and richer..obviously not!
as far as the websites goes ..diff strokes for diff folks i guess :-/ Yikes!
|true that Becky! on Dec 16, 2010 @ 09:23 am|
Guppy: 7 years apart is not a big difference. It's really about where you are in your life. My parents are 10 years apart but it worked for them because they met at a time when they both wanted the same things. It's more of a difference when you are talking 30 years apart.
Personally, I am 23 and I look at men in their 20s and 30s very very very differently than a look at a man in his 50s and 60s. If he's old enough to be my parent, then he is too old to date!! I would NOT want to have the father of one of my friends look at me like I'm some hot chick.
I don't mean to knock anyone who is looking for a Sugar Daddy, as Becky says: Different strokes for different folks!!

Did you even check out the site? There are guys in their 20's and 30's looking for arm candy. They are not all old men. Its hard for busy career driven guys to hang out at clubs (other than golf lunches ;) or such to meet someone. There is a hunky tattooed car dealer owner in my area, younger than me - rarrrh :)
Becky - thanks - wish it was that fairy tale'ish'. Honestly my hubby is the type of guy that cant be alone - we met 3 months after his first wife left him. I wasnt richer (single mom on assistance) but he had the 'potential'. I had the ability to guide him in his career to more than double his income so I could have another child and be a SAHM.
Maybe thats why I dont have any issue with this site - Im not a career girl - happy to be behind the scenes at home and have my man provide for me, whatever the age difference. Think I would have fit into the 1950's well!
