Miami Is a Sugar Daddy Capital, Study Says
Illustration by Liam Peters
Great news, gals: Miami is one of the nation's sugar daddy capitals. In a new study published by dating site Seeking Arrangement, Miami comes in at number 28 of 30 national cities that are the best spots to find that forever
We're actually a little surprised the Magic City didn't rank higher -- though this city is full of bros living at home and those spending all their income on car payments. Atlanta, it turns out, is the sugar daddy mecca, with the highest ratio of 19.84 sugar daddies per 1,000 males.
According to the study, Miami has 2.68 sugar daddies per 1,000 males. Other Florida cities made the list, including Orlando at number 3 (12.5 males) and Tampa (11.5 males) at number 6. Are those decimal points indicative of men so flush they round up? Or some kind of half-pimp hybrid? We dare not question the math.
Kirsten Johnson of Seeking Arrangement says Miami has 2,814 sugar daddies signed up, with the average age of these daddies being 43 -- and only 18 percent are married! The sugar daddies' average net worth in Miami is $13,745,618, with assistance they provide to sugar babies an average of $5,627.
SeekingArrangement.com, the world's largest sugar daddy dating website, sweetly defines a "sugar daddy" as "a man whom is successful and generous, and willing to provide a certain lifestyle for a young, attractive person in return for friendship or companionship."
Yes, these are some exciting prospects: Sugar daddy perks include "no strings attached" and "eight sugar babies per daddy." Ladies, you can look forward to "mentorship" and no more worries about those unpaid bills.
"Most people equate a sugar daddy with someone like Hugh Hefner, but this is not the case," Brandon Wade, founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com, says in a release. "Sugar daddies are young, successful men who do not have time to traditionally date. This year, the number of single men joining our website doubled, and the number of married daddies decreased."
That's even better news: No more pesky wives dipping into your daddy funds. Cheers!
