Chances are you probably heard of Seeking before.
The website was founded in 2006 and started as Seeking Arrangement.
Yes, it is the one that quickly made sugar dating mainstream.
But it’s time for a new area.
The dating site is now called Seeking and is promoting the concept of “Dating Up”.
With over 40 million users around the world, including tens of thousands in Thailand, and with a 4 to 1 female to male ratio, the site is a must for anyone looking for a relationship on their own terms.
And you don't need to take my word for it, you can try it for free today and see for yourself how many single attractive girls and guys are on the app.
To be honest, I was shocked to see how many Thais use it!
Now if you're not sure what to expect from the app and you don't know if it's the right dating site for you, I get it.
I didn't really know what to expect either.
That’s why I've tried the app for you.
And here’s a quick review where I sum up everything you need to know about it.

Pros And Cons
Seeking is the biggest dating site in the world for successful men and attractive women.
And there is a lot to like about it.
But it's also good to know that it’s not the right dating app for everyone.
Here’s what you should know about Seeking before you create an account:
- 40+ million users in the world. It's the biggest dating site of its type.
- 4/1 ratio. There are 4 girls for every guy on Seeking.
- Easy sign-up. Create an account in only 5 minutes.
- A lot of free features. You can create an account, search for singles, and send messages for free.
- Ease of use. The site is really straightforward and it’s really easy to get started and find the type of person you want.
- Lots of competition. Like with other popular dating apps like Tinder or Bumble. More users mean more choices but it also means more competition.
- No iOS app. That's a shame for a brand that big, but apparently, Apple isn't a fan of this type of app.
That made you curious to try Seeking?
Let's get started!
Signing Up On Seeking
Creating an account on Seeking only takes about 10 minutes and the whole sign-up process is very simple and easy.
Start by choosing whether you're looking for a successful person or an attractive one, if you’re interested in men, women, or both, and fill in your personal details.
It’s interesting to see that unlike Sugarbook, Seeking actually lets you choose if you're looking for a female or male partner, or open to both.
I’ve even seen Thai ladyboys on the app, so it’s clearly more open to gays and trans than other dating apps I’ve tried.
Now that you’ve created your account, let’s get to the most important part: your profile.
Setting Up Your Profile
The first and most important step of creating your profile on Seeking, choosing your nickname.
I didn’t want to use Mojomatt and have people find this review, or me, so I picked FunkyTrader.
You can’t use your real name, so you can use your favorite nickname, or let Seeking generate a username for you.
But the generator only offers basic combinations of two words.
It’s not that creative.
So have some fun and find something original and unique.
Next step, add a photo, your age, and describe what your ideal date is like.
As a successful man, you’ll also have to indicate your personal net worth and annual income.
That’s where things start to feel different from other dating apps.
After all, with this concept of “Dating Up”, how much you’re worth and what you make are at least as important as your physical appearance.
If not more.
At this step, your profile can be frozen with a note that it is “in review” while you wait for the approval.
The approval process usually takes between 12 and 48 hours.
Now on to your physical description (height, weight, body type, ethnicity, etc.) and personal information (do you smoke, drink, have children, what language do you speak, etc.).
Finally, add a short description to make the girls click on your profile and make them want to message you.
And it’s time to have some fun.
Let’s see how many girls we can find on Seeking.
Searching For A Date On Seeking
Seeking offers a lot of filters to find the perfect date.
First, the search is by default on people around you.
But you can change the location of your search to see the members anywhere in the world.
Even on the free version.
Now if you’re looking for a semi-serious relationship (Dating Up is for more than a one-night stand), you probably have some criteria.
On top of the location, Seeking has a lot of filters to help find the perfect date.
You can use filters to keep only guys or girls who:
- Have a photo
- Have a premium membership
- Have viewed or favorited your profile
- You have viewed or favorited
Then you can use advanced filters to sort results by
- Body type
- Hair Color
- If they smoke
- If they drink
- Relationship status
- If they have children
- Tags (the same tags you used when you set up your profile)
With a premium membership, you can then save your favorite combination of filters to use again in the future.
Here's an example of a profile you can find on Seeking.
Overall, the search filters are really powerful and they really help find the type of person you want.
And I was surprised to see there are thousands of girls in Thailand using Seeking.
You'll find girls in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Chiang Mai, and even on a few islands.
But with so many options, you're gonna have to use the filters to find the right fit.
Then the only way to really know if you found the right person is to start messaging the girls you favorited.
Time to play.
Messages And Videos Calls
Seeking in-app messenger is fast and easy to use.
There’s nothing special about it, but it’s reliable and gets the job done.
What is nice is that they now have a video call option to call your future date.
Video is always the best way to have a better idea of what someone looks and feels like.
That's why it's one of my tips for online dating.
Now everybody can fake anything on their photos with all the filters.
It's much harder to fake anything with video.
Seeking also makes you agree on rules before you start messaging, basically to agree you're a decent human being.
I don't know if it's because of these rules or maybe the screening process from their team, but there seems to be a lot less spam and escorts than on other dating sites for successful people.
That should help to save time and only focus on interesting girls.
There’s nothing worse than wasting time with bots and scammers.
Overall, Seeking does a pretty good job at filtering users, and all the girls I talked to (about 20 of them) were all legit and serious about their quest for the perfect man.
The seeking app is only available for Android.
Sorry iOS and iPhone users, for the moment you have to bookmark the website in your browser.
Now for my review of the Seeking app, on Android, it is really good.
The app is fluid, they don't have too many features, which I like, but just enough to do what you need to on the app, Seeking an Arrangement.
There's even a swipe left and right function like on Tinder if you want to play that game.
Memberships and Prices
On Seeking, creating an account, going through the girls' profiles, and messaging are free.
But you need a premium membership to see the messages you receive.
So let's be clear, a premium membership is not really an option, it's a must if you really want to find a date on Seeking.
But at least you can see who's on the app and if there's anyone you like before you start to pay.

Who is Seeking For?
Seeking is for those who know exactly what they want, and what they want is not necessarily a girlfriend or a wife.
It's for financially set men or women, independent parties, who want a relationship on their own terms.
And of course, it's for young and attractive people who are looking for more in life.
Young girls and guys open to trading time and companionship in exchange for the opportunity to meet successful people.
Seeking is for people who want the kind of relationship they can't find anywhere else.
What I Think of Seeking
To be completely transparent, I've tried Seeking just for fun and never tried to find a date on it.
I'm not the target demographic (too old to be in the attractive group, and not rich enough to be on the successful side), and I never really tried this type of dating.
That being said, I have friends, wealthy friends, who used it to find dates and they had nothing but good things to say about it.
It allows them to quickly find exactly what they want, without feeling awkward when they talk about how much they make or the lifestyle they live on regular dating apps.
If like them, you have the money, you know what you want, and you don't want to waste anyone's time or create false hope, then Seeking is exactly what you need.
Seeking is the number one dating app in the world where successful and attractive people meet.
Seeking work like any other dating app. You create an account, complete your profile, and start messaging people you like on the platform. What's different with Seeking is the nature of the relationship you'll find on the platform. And for that there are no rules, you can create your own arrangement with the singles you meet.
Seeking is an established dating website that has been around since 2006. And with more than 40 million users now, it is more than legit.
It takes 12 to 48 hours to get your profile approved on Seeking.
You can create a profile and send messages for free on Seeking. That's a good way to see if that’s the right dating app. Then if you want to read and answer messages, you need to pay for a membership (either Premium or Diamond).
A premium membership on Seeking is $109.99 for 1 month and $289.99 for 3 months. A diamond membership is $274.99 for 1 month. See more details.
Seeking is always free for girls even in Thailand. But those who upgrade for a premium membership can unlock additional features.
