The Benefits of Dating the Old and Rich
Sorry guys — it has been scientifically proven that women mature faster than men. The female brain makes connections and “prunes” itself faster than the male brain, so to say men don’t act their age is a legit statement. It is no wonder that women often find themselves falling for older men.
However, it is one thing to be attracted to older men and another to actively, exclusively seek older, wealthier men. This my friends is being a sugar baby.
Some people question sugar babies’ motives and wonder if they have morals. Personally, I don’t see a point in judging them. Think about it, needs are being satisfied. The younger person is being taken to nice places and having their expenses paid, while the older person enjoys human company and gets to flaunt a gorgeous person by their side. Some suger daddies and mamas even offer to pay off student loans and only ask that the sugar baby attend dinner a few times a month. I don’t know about you, but student loans are the bain of my existence and imaging them gone in a flash is a dream come true.
If you are seriously considering embarking on the sugar baby lifestyle anytime soon, make sure to follow the three Rs to play it safe:
Not sure you want to be a sugar baby? Read up on it. There are a ton of articles and websites you can look up to get a better idea if this is for you or not.
Once you have done your research reading through all things sugar babies, review your potential candidates. What do their profiles look like? What are their interests? Are there any red flags? Carefully reviewing someone’s profile is essential before moving forward and replying to their messages.
Before entering the world of sugar babies, sit down and really think things through. Know your limits going into things. Are you just in it to strictly go on dates? Are you actively pursuing a sexual or emotional relationship? Once you have decided, stay true to yourself no matter what. If someone offers you more money to do something you don’t want to do, the answer is NO. This is not prostitution, you are not required to do anything, so if you begin to feel uncomfortable just walk away from the situation entirely.
Being a sugar baby isn’t for everyone. Try not to judge because you can’t knock it until you try it. Keep in mind that everyone has a different reason for dating up. Some are strictly in it for the money and benefits, but others genuinely find older men intriguing and would even argue that is their type. So let them be and join in if you are interested. If not, judge from afar.
