Some women are dripping with diamonds. Some women are dripping with pearls. If you want to become one of those women (and hey, who doesn't?) take the road to riches by signing up for SugarDaddie.com, the online dating outlet for gold-diggers. Cough. We mean for those who acknowledge success and ambition as traits of attraction, and appreciate the finer things in life.
Sugardaddie.com has helped thousands of Sugar Daddies share the fruits of their labor with Sugar Babes in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia since 2002. A Sugar Daddie/Babe relationship is a "close, yet non-committed relationship with an affluent man who is a mentor/benefactor or friend to a woman," says the site. If users seek men or women as rich in romance as in, well, riches, they can say so on their profile, which include photos and standard stats such as age, location, and occupation.

Sugar Babes aren't prompted to post their income, but every Sugar Daddie's profile includes his yearly salary and estimated worth. While SugarDaddie.com doesn't verify financial information or discriminate against those in low income brackets, the site is as succinct as Fergie in stating its standards: If you ain't got no money take your broke ass home.
An article on first impressions from SugarDaddie's dating advice section cites four acceptable watch brands for men to wear. It seems that men without Omega, Frank Mueller, Rolex, or Cartier on their wrist may need a little more than luck in this dating circle.
Users don't need much luck navigating the site or finding matches. Searching for a Sugar Daddie, Sugar Mommie, or Sugar Babe can be done using every profile category (the criteria can be saved for future searches). Search results include members' basic information alongside their photo and custom introductory headline. With headlines such as "Are you over 80, with no kids, wealthy, and ready to say: I do?" from one 25-year-old Sugar Babe and male photos featuring boats, boutonnieres and bare chests, it's simple to sift through members and cash in on the creme de la creme.
The homepage features thumbnail photos of new members and a sidebar for searches, matches, mail, hot lists, help and forums. The most popular forum topic is "What does it mean to be a Sugar Daddie or Sugar Babe?" it's an interesting read, to say the least. The other three forums don't draw nearly as many posts.

SugarDaddie features include a reverse hot list, which allows users to see members who have found them attractive. It also offers a free--albeit limited--membership. A Premium Membership allows members to send and receive messages for $19.99/month, with lower rates for longer memberships.
SugarDaddie doesn't promise to find a perfect match for every member; rather, the site's refined realists simply claim to provide a finer lot of potentials for their members' own, er, digging.
