SugarDaddyMeet was launched in 2007, by SuccessfulMatch.com. SuccessfulMatch.com specializes in dating networks of different niches. Their niches include, Bikers, Bisexuals, Millionaires and more. Successful Match is a privately held company owned by Keith Wells. In addition to SugarDaddyMeet, SuccessfulMatch.com also operates:

SugarDaddyMeet was created for heterosexual wealthy males, also known as sugar daddies, and attractive, young women, also known as sugar babies, looking for a mature wealthy man to provide them with the finer things in life. SugarDaddyMeet’s slogan is “Sugar Makes Life Sweeter”, and this holds true for their members. Sugar daddies and sugar babies partake in a mutual beneficial relationship. The sugar daddies get to enjoy the company of a beautiful young woman (sugar baby), and the sugar baby gets to experience the life of wealth and have their expenses taken care of by their sugar daddies.
A sugar daddy typically seeks a discreet relationship with their sugar baby. Often times the sugar daddies have families and are married, this leads to them having to balance their obligations at home and also invest in their relationship with their sugar baby. Sugar babies also prefer to keep their relationships with their sugar daddies a secret for fear of being judged. SugarDaddyMeet provides the following tips for sugar daddies and sugar babies to keep their relationship discreet:
- Communication between sugar daddies and sugar babies can be kept private by keeping all communication through their SugarDaddyMeet website profile. This makes it easier to cover their tracks.
- Agreeing to a story in case either the sugar daddy or sugar baby runs into someone they know while they are enjoying an evening out.
- Being mindful of the location that you agree to meet your sugar baby or sugar daddy.
- Using payment methods that leave little paper trail, such as gift cards, pre-paid debit cards or PayPal.
- Agreeing on a specific time to communicate via text, phone calls, etc.
SugarDaddyMeet also advises sugar babies to keep the relationship with a no strings attached mind frame, as not taking caution can cause romantic feelings to occur and lead down to a brokenhearted road. The focus instead should consist on achieving momentary pleasure. These tips are provided to members to keep a successful and ongoing relationship, where both sugar daddies and sugar babies can partake in a mutual beneficial, enjoyable relationship.
SugarDaddyMeet’s services are specifically for heterosexual sugar daddies and sugar babies. They do not offer services to people looking for a gay sugar daddy or a “cougar”. SugarDaddyMeet is a popular site; in 2015, it claimed it had 1.3 million approved users. 500,000+ of those users are actively participating on a daily basis with 7,500 logins a day.

Creating a Profile
Creating a profile on SugarDaddyMeet.com takes a little bit longer to complete than other dating websites. The reason for this is, the user has to write descriptions about themselves and what they are looking for in a partner. This requires thought and time to be completed.
In order to create your profile on SugarDaddyMeet, the user will have to indicate whether they are a Male/Sugar daddy or Female/Sugar baby and what the user is seeking, whether it is a sugar daddy or sugar baby. The user then has to indicate the age range that they are seeking, Country/Area, and State/Province.
Once you select the option, the user has to agree to SugarDaddyMeet Guidelines to proceed. Once the user agrees to the guidelines, they are asked the following to create their profile:
- Email address
- Mobile phone (this is optional)
- First name (It will not be displayed publicly)
- Body type
- Relationship status
- Photo: You have the option of uploading a photo. You can choose to upload your photo from Facebook, or drag an image to a box, or via your files. SugarDaddyMeet recommends it, as a profile with a photo gets 20 more views. However, you can also skip this step and upload the photo later. If you do decide to upload a photo, SugarDaddyMeet must first approve it. This can take 24-48hours.
- Profile headline: Users have to create a headline. It will appear at the top of the profile and search results. This can be changed at any time.
- About Me: The user is required to write a full description about themselves, to tell who they are. It is recommended that they write about their personal characteristics and interests. This can be changed at any time.
- About my match/friends: The user is required to describe their ideal match and/or the type of relationship that they are looking for. This can be changed at any time.
- Verify Email Address: The user has to verify their email address through a message SugarDaddyMeet sends to their inbox.
Once the user verifies their email address, they have instant access to their profile, and are able to view other matches’ profiles.
