You didn't build that, someone gave you help along the way - someone like a sugar daddy.

While the majority of the country is feeling the effects of the government shut down and party disagreement over Obamacare, one industry is reaping the rewards from the fallout. Beginning September 29th, SeekingArrangement.com, the world’s largest Sugar Daddy dating site, experienced its largest growth in new sugar baby sign ups since March. Over 13, 947 women have joined the site this week, 56 percent of which are single mothers.

“Obama once said, ‘Successful Americans do want to give something back, and no one finds success on their own. You didn’t build that, someone gave you help along the way.’- someone like a sugar daddy,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com.

“Everytime the government makes a decision that affects the financial well-being of millions of people, our site continues to thrive.”

On October 1, 2013, the US government shut down after Congress failed to agree on the Affordable Care Act and government spending. The shutdown resulted in the furlough of more than 800,000 federal and government workers, shutting down government programs which support key sugar baby demographics, including students and single mothers.

“The majority of our sugar baby membership is made up of students and single mothers, whom always seem to get the short end of the stick,” comments Wade. “With government-funded student loans and pell grants being held, and WIC vouchers being stalled, women are going to start looking to someone other than Uncle Sam to pick up the bill.”

SeekingArrangement.com is the largest Sugar Daddy dating website in the world, with over 2 million members. 44 percent of sugar baby membership is made up of college students, while 30 percent are single mothers. The average sugar baby receives $3000 per month in financial assistance from sugar arrangements.
