‘Since then I’ve had a number of relationships with girls I have met online and, until I want something more serious, it suites my lifestyle and I have met some great people.’ So, while not being the most conventional form of dating it could be arguably one of the most honest.
Sugar daddy dating is an arrangement between consenting adults – and a way for people who prefer to avoid the formalities of traditional dating and cut straight to the chase, to meet.
At least it’s more honest than stringing someone along pretending to be in love when you’re using them as a meal ticket.
John from Sussex, a regular user of sugar daddy dating sites explains.
I started chatting to a ‘millionaire’ and within three email exchanges he was talking about what a strong connection he felt we had, and how he couldn’t wait to ‘make love to me’ (eurgghh).

Long-term relationships are rare.’ I also spoke to construction firm owner Barry, from Essex, who uses Sugar daddy dating sites regularly.
