A new study published by Swansea University reveals that money is one of the deciding factors for women when they consider potential mates. Researchers studied nearly 2-million dating profiles and found men with higher incomes were 3.5 times more likely to attract women.

The study was brought up on our morning show and led to a discussion about "gold-diggers", "sugar daddies," and "sugar mamas."  There is a lot of money in Rochester so I assumed that there were people in our area that might be in one of these relationships. I was right. You can hear from a Rochester woman who is currently involved with a "sugar daddy" below.

What Is a Sugar Daddy?

Sugar Daddy is defined in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as, "a well-to-do usually older man who supports or spends lavishly on a mistress, girlfriend, or boyfriend."

After a quick Google search, we learned this was fake. The Better Business Bureau says scammers send messages over social media or a dating app asking you to be their sugar baby and promising a weekly allowance.

If you accept the offer they'll start to send you money but after a short while the scammer will ask you to send a small amount to help one of their friends or family members and as soon as you send the money, the scammers have access to your bank account and take all of your money.
