Secret Benefits vs Seeking: Which Dating Site is Better?
Secret Benefits & Seeking.com are the two biggest players in the sugar dating industry. Seeking, however, has changed its niche and transformed from a sugar dating site to a one-size-fits-all dating platform. Did it improve or worsen its position compared to Secret Benefits? Which site is better? Let’s find out.

The main difference between these two sites in terms of pricing is the system itself—on Seeking, members pay for monthly premium plans, while on Secret Benefits, users purchase credits and can spend them on unlocking conversations with particular members. On Secret Benefits, the cheapest package costs $59, and it’s enough to unlock conversations with 10 members, while on Seeking.com, the cheapest monthly plan costs around $100, and unlimited messaging is included. So, it all depends on how active you are—if you plan to communicate with a lot of members, Seeking is even affordable.
Our editor’s conclusion
Though both sites have some pros and cons, Seeking.com will work better for most users. There are still a lot of people seeking sugar arrangements, as well as people seeking other relationships, there’s no need to control your spending due to premium plans, and most importantly, members can not only send private messages but can also use video chat.
