When you’re thinking about sugaring it’s something you should think about a lot before you make the choice to do so—because the truth is, despite the fact that it has so many amazing advantages, it’s not for everyone.
I’d love to sit here and tell you that you should jump head first in and try it, but the truth is it can be challenging and it (just like any form of dating) isn’t something you should just decide to do without thinking about it carefully before making any big steps. Here are a few questions to ask yourself to put things into perspective.
What do you want?
Is it just about the money for you or is it about something more? Sugaring is hard, and it’s important to decide what you want up front (and know that it might change, which is totally okay)
What are you expecting it to be like?
Are you expecting something lavish? Million dollar dates and the high life? I’m going to be honest, that’s probably not what you’re going to get. I mean, you might get dates that cost more than you’re used to, and you’ll get a sugar daddy that doesn’t bat his eyes about the price of things, and probably someone who pays for all the meals- but it’s important to make sure you understand most sugar daddies aren’t living lavish lifestyles. If that’s what you’re expecting, you’re probably going to be disappointed.
Will it affect your future?
Some of you might want high profile careers, and some people might have issues getting those careers if anyone finds out about them being a sugar baby. I hate saying it, but there is still a lot of stigma surrounding sugaring- despite all the potential benefits to it.
This is something to think about.
Are you going to tell friends and family?
You don’t have to have an exact answer to this, but you should have an idea if you’re going to tell your friends and family and if not, what you’re going to tell them instead. Otherwise, you might have to cross that bridge when it comes and that could put you in a tough situation.
What if someone finds out?
Do you know what you will do if someone finds out about you? Are you doing to be ashamed of your choice to have a sugar daddy? Are you going to worry about what your friends say?
If that’s the case you might not be ready for sugaring and you might never be. There is nothing wrong with being a little embarrassed by it like I said above there is still a lot of stigma attached to sugaring, but if you’re going to feel embarrassed by it, sugaring might not be good for you
Are you going to be okay with it or does it feel dirty to you?
One thing that comes up a lot when I talk to girls about sugaring is the idea that it is dirty. Some sugar babies I’ve talked to said they struggled with this at first, and other girls I’ve talked to say they would never consider because they would feel dirty. This is something I really want to talk about in its own post in the future—so stay tuned for that. But for now, ask yourself if you’re going to feel dirty about it. Because if you think you will, the truth is sugaring probably isn’t for you. But it doesn’t hurt to still try it.
When it comes down to it, I’m a huge believer that if you don’t try something you won’t know for sure if it’s for you or not, but answering these questions should give you a good idea as to if sugaring is something that will be good for you and your life.
