You’ve mastered the playdate, now it’s time to master the Sugar Date. If you’re a mom who has decided to try her luck in the Sugar Bowl, you’ve come to the right place. Sugar Dating does not require the same committment normal dating requires. You control the type of arrangement that works best for you, and you don’t have to be apologetic about it. Being a single mother is expensive and sometimes lonely, which is why a large percentage of women opt to try Sugar Dating. Here is some advice on how to navigate being a Sugar Baby with a baby.
Reveal You Have a Little One
You teach your child not to lie, right? Well the advice should also apply to you. Don’t be afraid to check the ‘yes’ box that you have a little one, and when it comes to filling in your ‘About Me’ section, mention in one brief sentence that you have a child. Once you’ve disclosed that important part of your life, use the rest of the space to describe only yourself. After all, your profile should showcase who you are. List what you want and are looking for.
Be Upfront with Your Schedule
You know where you have to be and when, whether it’s picking up your child from school or daycare. So before you start Sugar Dating, make sure you have a complete understanding of how much time you can commit. An arrangement is a mutually beneficial agreement. Of course unforeseen events can come up, but you can’t expect a Sugar Daddy to financially assist you if he feels like spending time with him isn’t somewhat of a priority to you. Never overcommit. If you can only give once a month, then be honest about that.
Be Open to Non-Parents
While the majority of men on SeekingArrangement are older and have children, there are still a fair amount that do not. If you are approached by a man without offspring, don’t be so quick to write him off. Don’t close doors before you even open them. Remember you are more than just a mother to your child. Just because cartoons and ice cream at the park has become your new routine doesn’t mean everything you enjoyed before your child came into your life has to be forgotten. Your life is deeper than crayons and coloring books. If you have a good connection with someone and they are understanding to your situation, it shouldn’t matter whether they have kids or not.
By now privacy may feel like a far memory, but with Sugar Dating it’s a part of the agreement. Most men on the site are private and discreet about their arrangements. Some are married and others hold powerful job titles. Unlike a traditional boyfriend, you have no obligation to introduce a POT to anyone. Your child does not have to meet him, the father of your child, or even your family. Again, reiterating that arrangements are as private or as outward as you want them to be.
Dating a Sugar Daddy can be the perfect supplement to your life. Enjoying a successful man’s company and watching him pick up the bill isn’t a bad gig. All moms deserve some sweet pampering every once and awhile.
