Do: Be Brutally Honest
As Brandon has said, “The best Sugar Baby and Sugar Daddy relationships form out of brutal honesty”. If you go into an arrangement with all your expectations on the table, each person will know what to expect from each other.
Don’t: Have Unrealistic Expectations
The funds and luxuries you attain while in the Sugar Bowl alone will never make you rich. It’s what you do with that extra income. That being said, you shouldn’t think that being a Sugar Baby will solve all your problems once you find a Sugar Daddy. It takes a little while to find the right Sugar Daddy, and a little bit more to establish a relationship.
Do: Verify Everyone
It’s hard to date with 100% confidence. But, with online dating, or at least on SeekingArrangement.com, you can get pretty close. We insist that you only date verified members, so you should insist that any Sugar Daddy who is interested in you be verified. You can’t risk your safety because you are afraid of scaring off POT Sugar Daddies. It isn’t a gimmick. Your safety is our number-one priority. It should be your’s too.
Don’t: Rely on Sugar for Income
Sugaring is not welfare. Mutually beneficial relationships bring two people together who believe that money should be an important part of a partnership. Don’t rely on Sugar as your main source of income. Consider it like an end of the year bonus that comes every month. Monthly necessities should be covered by your paycheck, while Sugaring monies should be used for luxuries.
Do: Keep Your Emotions in Check
I think Brandon does a good job at explaining this: “Don’t forget that, as a Sugar Baby, part of what you offer is a drama-free, simple, and fun experience whenever you are with your Sugar Daddy. One of the main reasons Sugar Daddies seek Sugar Babies is to find someone to help them take the stress away. Keep your emotional expectations in check. Don’t slip into being emotionally-dependent on your Sugar Daddy that isn’t ready for a long-term commitment. Of course, this isn’t always easy, especially if your Sugar Daddy slips up and drops the ‘L’ (love) bomb on you after a night of one too many drinks.”
Don’t: Fake It
If you aren’t interested, it’s going to show. Don’t try to force or fake chemistry that isn’t there. Otherwise, you are setting the rest of time in the Sugar Bowl to be miserable. Pair up with a Sugar Daddy that you have a genuine attraction to. Interests should also play a key role. Although you may want to experience new things in life, if you absolutely hate finance skip the Sugar Daddies whose idea of morning conversation is chatting about the markets.
Do: Be On Your Guard
You wouldn’t trust a guy 100% after the 3rd date. The same goes for Sugar dating. Be wary of peculiar or weird behavior and save the private meeting places for when you have established a strong bond of trust. Until then, keep a friend in the loop of where you are going for each meeting.
Maybe your Sugar Baby profile is getting as many hits as you had hoped. Don’t settle for just any Sugar Daddy because you want to go head-first into the Sugar Bowl. This is how Sugar Babies end up in Splenda relationships. Pick wisely and stick to your standards.
