In light of recent events, we thought it was time to do a refresher in sugar safety. Online dating safety is a huge concern, and no matter how desperate you are for money, opportunity or affection- nothing is more important than your personal safety.
We screen all profiles and approve members in-house, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be cautious while getting to know your potential date. If a profile is not “verified”, don’t be afraid to ask them for a background check. Do not accept a date with someone who makes your uncomfortable, trust your gut. The desire for sugar should never outweigh your value on personal safety. Insist on a background check. Google them. Skype. Call. Text. BEFORE YOU LEAVE for your date. Ask questions, and discuss your intentions and expectations before you get there.
Never meet up with a potential Sugar Daddy at a private location. Insist on meeting somewhere public, and if possible, familiar to you. Don’t have him pick you up, and never give out any personal information until you are better acquainted. If possible valet your car, so you won’t be in a situation where you are being walked to a darkened parking garage at the end of the night. Always take the elevator at night, never use the stairs. If you are traveling to meet a Sugar Daddy, confirm all travel plans to and from, and make sure you research the destination ahead of time.
As a woman there will always be a concern for personal safety. Demand respect from the moment you first lay eyes on each other, and dress accordingly. Even if you really need the money, desperation should never be a flaunted trait. Don’t overindulge yourself on alcohol, and always watch your drinks. In the sugar bowl, everything seems almost to good to be true, so you need to be even more cautious and guarded to determine the validity of a proposed arrangement. A first meeting should never turn into a sexual transaction. If he’s leading you down that path, he is not a true Sugar Daddy. Take control of your safety, it’s better to be paranoid than a victim.
If you only follow one of these rules: never meet a stranger anywhere but in public. Don’t go to his house, don’t go somewhere secluded. Date in public.
