We would all like to think that our Sugar Daddies are Super Daddies. The Masters of the Universe. However, any veteran Sugar Baby will know that all Daddies are susceptible to falling on rough times. A word to the wise: Before you go packing your bags and dipping into the Sugar Bowl, keep in mind those that weather the worst storms receive the greatest rewards. Now, I’m not saying that things will not get tricky, because they might. Remember our Sugar Daddies are much like boyfriends. The only difference is that they are rich and sometimes much older.
1. Health Problems
Many Sugar Babies feel powerless when faced with ailments their Daddies are facing. I mean, we’re supposed to have rejuvenated and added energy to their lives! If your Daddy is cutting down on visits due to required checkups and surgeries, send a text message after each one to see how he is doing and feeling. It shows that in good health and bad, you will stand by his side. Just try not to include talk of money in said communication lest he assume you’re just checking to see if the biggie bank has run out.
2. Personal Problems
Show of hands: how many of us have had arrangements with married gentlemen? Some of us are lucky enough that their wives encouraged Sugaring. She enjoys her country clubs and balls while you enjoy the trips to Rodeo Drive and the Bahamas. Unfortunately, it isn’t all that easy. When your Daddy is facing a divorce or other issues with their spouses, investigate what the specifics are. Some Sugar Daddies need to be extra discreet when facing an ugly divorce. Once you have the info all your inquiries about the matter should halt. Unless he brings it up, to you nothing bad is going on in his life. Be extra affectionate and loving during this time. Often times these men are feeling underappreciated and bitter. Showing him some love reminds him that his Sugar will always stay sweet.
3. Professional Problems
A project of his has tanked, his partners mishandled a big case, etc. Let’s be honest. Unless you are in the same field or majoring in your Sugar Daddy’s line of work, you will have no idea what he is complaining about. However, this does not mean that you should play dumb. Your Daddy is with you because he feels like one of the Masters of the Universe, so give your insight on the matter but steer clear of a possible debate.
4. Financial Problems
“Don’t you know that a man being rich is like a girl being pretty? You wouldn’t marry a girl just because she’s pretty, but my goodness, doesn’t it help?”-Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. If you have established a relationship with this Sugar Daddy, then don’t be quick to dismiss him as Splenda. Everyone has made bad investments here and there. If he starts lessening meetings, take him aside and discuss why. Nine times out of ten he is avoiding the “change in allowance” talk. If the new arrangement suits your needs then stick around—sometimes a lull produces even better financial gain for a man. His investors won’t be the only one’s receiving profit sharing.
