New York, NY (PRWEB) January 13, 2012
Since the Huffington Post first published an article in July 2011 about the college Sugar Babies of SeekingArrangement.com, the leading sugar daddy and sugar baby dating website has been featured on a number of National TV shows including Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew, CNN Headline News, and The Morning Show.
Today, SeekingArrangement.com is being featured on ABC’s 20/20 about “Creative Ways Some College Girls are Paying off the Cost of Higher Education”.
“In 2011, we saw an explosion in the number of college students seeking Sugar Daddies to help pay their college tuition”, says Brandon Wade, Founder & CEO of SeekingArrangement.com. “One in every two sugar babies who join our website today are college students, and college sugar babies now make up 40% of our sugar baby population, up from 33% in 2010.”
So which Universities do these college Sugar Babies come from?
SeekingArrangement.com today announces the Top 20 list of Universities with the largest number of Sugar Baby signups in 2011:
University Ranking -- # Signups

College students who register for an account on SeekingArrangement.com with their dot-EDU email address automatically receive a free premium membership upgrade, and are certified as “College Sugar Babies”. Profiles that are certified as “College Sugar Babies” receive three times more inquiries from potential Sugar Daddies.
“In 2012, as the economy continues to limp along, we expect the trend of college students signing up as Sugar Babies to maintain its explosive growth,” says Mr. Wade who holds a BS degree and an MBA degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “An important social fabric is broken in our society, where individuals are taught to fend for themselves once they turn 18. We can no longer depend on our government or our parents for our education. In the absence of these important social support systems, it’s no wonder more and more college students are relying on finding a Sugar Daddy or Sugar Mommy to pay for college.”

SeekingArrangement.com is founded by Brandon Wade, an online dating expert, author and entrepreneur who also started SeekingMillionaire.com - the leading millionaire matchmaker online service, WhatsYourPrice.com - the first and only, patent pending online dating website where singles can buy and sell first dates, and MissTravel.com - the first travel dating website where attractive people travel free.
