A WOMAN searching for 'Mr Right' has made £3,000 in six months in cash gifts and lavish presents from sugar daddies.
Keeley Bailey, 24, had previously dated younger men – but decided to ditch mainstream dating apps like Tinder and Bumble in order to meet guys as old as 55.
The singleton – who is from Manchester and works for Adidas – joined a sugar baby site SeekingArrangement, where beautiful women are matched with affluent men, who spoil them with shopping sprees, extravagant holidays and cash.
Keeley has so far been given new phones, a laptop and designer clothes.
After signing up, she received messages from potential suitors within an hour.
"I started speaking to a few of them, and some fizzled out – but with others, there was a spark," she explained.
"I exchanged numbers with two, who were both around 10 years older than me.
"That isn’t actually as old as I thought men on the site would be, but I don’t discriminate, so I wouldn’t have a set cut-off date with how old I’d go.”
Keeley added: “For me, it is all about connection. There are some really attractive men on the site, but if there isn’t that spark and conversation doesn’t flow, then I’m not interested.”
Since joining, she has found two sugar daddies – one who she speaks to on the phone every day and the other who she has been out with.
What is a sugar daddy and how does the relationship work?
A sugar daddy is a generous older man who spends lavishly on his mistress, girlfriend or boyfriend.
He's often a businessman, who considers himself too busy for conventional dating – and isn't short of a few bob.
A sugar baby, meanwhile, is normally an attractive younger woman who can't afford her luxury lifestyle.
The couple will usually establish a financial agreement early on – as well as their boundaries, such as whether or not they're considering a sexual relationship.
Some sugar babies ask for a monthly allowance, while other get 'expenses' in the form of glam holidays and shopping sprees.
While a growing number of sugar babies are university students, who turn to their 'daddy' to pay their fees.
According to Seeking Arrangement, the average sugar daddy is 45 years old – and earns a salary of £176,000.
While the average sugar baby rakes in £2,300-a-month, making a comfortable annual 'salary' of £27,600
Keeley said: “We went on a shopping spree and for coffee, then out for dinner before he dropped me home. It was all very casual.”
As well as her two main sugar daddies, she also receives anonymous gifts from other interested suitors from the site.
She continued: “I mostly get cash gifts via PayPal. I’ll get them first thing in the morning, with messages like, ‘Have a good day, beautiful.’
“I’ll also get them if I’ve been chatting to someone and mention I’ve had a bad day, to cheer me up, or that I am going out with the girls at the weekend, so I can get some drinks on them.
"If they don’t want to send cash, I have an Amazon wishlist, so they can get me something from there instead.”
As well as money, Keeley has received lavish gifts like a Gucci scarf, designer trainers and top-of-the-range hair straighteners.
Admitting that she is “constantly” breaking her phones, she has also been gifted new mobiles and a Macbook laptop.
All in, she estimates she has made around £3,000 in just six months and has spoken to sugar daddies aged from 25 to 55.
Hitting back at critics, who liken sugaring to escorting, she said: “People always assume you must be doing something to get the gifts and money, but I am absolutely not.
“I have only met one man off the site in person – who’s only about 10 years older than me – the rest have just decided to give me gifts anyway.
“I never ask for money and wouldn’t accept it if it felt like there was a catch, as that way, you could end up feeling pressured. To anyone being critical, I’d say to learn more about being a sugar baby before judging, as it’s not what everybody assumes.”
Always falling for younger men in the past, her experience has opened her eyes to the benefits of older suitors.
She explained: “The appealing thing about older men is that they are more established and mature and know themselves better.
"I want a man who can look after me, but that I can look after, too. It’s a two-way street."
