Business idea: How could I make this more enjoyable for women, so they can weed out the bad eggs before suffering through a terrible date?While exploring that question, I came across Seeking Arrangement.com, a website designed to pair sugar babies with sugar daddies or mommas.“For the purposes of media interviews and promotion of only, Cougar Life allowed Opdenkelder adopt a public persona as ‘founder’ and or ‘president’ of Cougar Life in the course of providing the Services to increase her credibility as spokesperson for Cougarlife.com,” the company stated.“In reality, Opdenkelder did not perform any duties or services as ‘president’ other than those related to spokesperson, as set out in the Consulting Agreement.A few weeks after signing the divorce papers, I jumped right back into the dating game with a 29-year-old I had met at a work function.
