Young women at a university in Northern Ireland are coming up with a novel way to pay their way through college – find a sugar daddy. Hundreds of hard-up students have signed up to a dating website to find men to help ease their financial concerns.
Students at Queen’s University in Belfast have latched on to a global phenomenon, the website Seeking Arrangement. Over 200 women have signed-up to the site - 84 in 2014 - which allows them to find rich men who will help them out financially as they struggle to pay their way through university.
On average, the sugar daddies spend in the region of £3,000 ($4,570) on their so-called sugar babies for company and sex, while also showering them with gifts.
