Sugar vs. Basic

The confusion is thinking a Sugar date is somehow different from a non-­sugar first date. Truly, it’s really not that different. When two people meet on SeekingArrangement, the first date is like an interview. It is an opportunity to figure out if that person is right for you. As a rule of thumb, don’t exchange money on the first date, or plan on having sex. Seriously, no sex! Gifts are okay, and some Sugar Daddies like to pay for pre­date primping which is also okay.

Perks of Sugar

To give you a better idea of what it’s like to get ready for a sugar date, we followed Mia, a Sugar Baby out of New York City. Her Sugar Daddy Chris set her up for a day of pampering before their first meeting. He also got her a hotel in the city.

The perks of sugar are better than most anticipate. Having a man who is endlessly generous and accommodating is a whole new breed of dating. With that being said, the Sugar world is anything but cut and dry.


Once you join the Sugar world, you will be introduced to new words and phrases. Pay­-per-­meet is a popular one, so you’ll want to remember what it means. Pay-­per-­meet is when you agree to meet once and have a set amount per meeting. NEVER agree to this type of date. This sort of arrangement isn’t as popular because you want to create something sustainable and beneficial for both people. Don’t sell yourself short and agree to something that won’t last.

Finding the Right Daddy

You won’t know if a Sugar Daddy is right for you until you meet in ­person, but you can gauge the level of compatibility by opening up clear communication prior to the first date. It’s important that you are completely honest with him. Good communication and honesty is a sure indication if there is potential for a good match.
