How to delete your Seeking Arrangements account?

What is Seeking?

Seeking is an online dating service directed towards Sugar Daddies or Mommas and Sugar Babies. Yeah, it’s a weird one. It is a pretty controversial platform along with the likes of Adult Friend Finder and Ashley Madison. It is specially designed for wealthy and successful people to meet attractive people who can accompany them while they get pampered with gifts and such. The company claims to deliver a new way for relationships to form and grow. Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies or Mommas both get what they want when they want it.

Sugar Babies enjoy a life of luxury by being pampered with fine dinners, exotic trips, and allowances. And in turn, Sugar Daddies or Mommas find attractive members to accompany them at all times. It’s like a win-win situation for both parties.

And you might have guessed that the membership fee isn’t cheap. But that shouldn’t be a problem because it is meant for the uber-rich folks for whom money isn’t a problem. The company also needs to verify your account before you actually get to be on the platform.

At the moment there are 10 million users on the platform among which 2 million are Sugar Daddies & Mommas and 8 million are Sugar Babies. And Seeking is one of those platforms where the number of females is higher than the males and you can guess why that is so.  And it is used in about 139 countries around the world in 10 languages. So it’s quite fair to say there are quite a lot of users even though the platform is considered to be highly controversial.

Why you should think about deleting your Seeking account?

The whole premise of the platform is thought to be quite controversial in the public eye. But there are other controversial facts that surround Seeking, Let us take a look at these shady details that might make you want to delete your account and part ways with the platform for good.

In 2012 during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, Seeking saw a 25.9% increase in the number of users in that area. And the Huffington Post allegedly reported that this rise was associated with high-level politicians using the service to get sugar babies to accompany them.

And in 2011, a former New York US Representative Anthony Weiner was involved in a scandal involving extramarital affairs with six women who he met on Seeking. One of the women named Sydney Elaine Leathers later admitted having a relationship with the US Representative.

In 2016, a man was found to have a sexual relationship with a minor on Seeking. This issue was also taken to court but the defendant was cleared of all charges brought against him by a unanimous jury decision.

In 2021, it was reported by The New York Times that the former Seminole County tax collector Joel Greenberg who was indicted on federal sex trafficking charges, used the site to meet women. Another US Representative Matt Gaetz also allegedly used the site to meet women.

If you are using the free version of the site you will encounter a lot of bot accounts. And old and unused accounts are still visible to the users as well. But you can get rid of this with a membership fee. And the membership fee is quite steep on this platform. You won’t be able to do much at all with a free account. You will have to pay about $20 per month if you are a Sugar Baby and $90 per month if you are a Sugar Daddy or Mommy.

What happens when you delete your Seeking account?

Once you deactivate or delete your Seeking account, your profile will be removed from search and will no longer be visible to other members.
