We figured it was time we address dating In Real Life (IRL) versus the dating in sugar. What is it that truly makes the lifestyle unique? Is it for everyone? Why or why not? It’s time discuss the difference between these two lifestyle choices, and why people choose to participate in either route.
Whether a person decides to meet their match in person or online, the initial encounter tends to be a bit awkward. Cheesy pick up lines happen and they happen often. More often than not, hopeless romantics approach dating as if they might meet their soul mate. This only adds to the uncomfortableness. In the long run, both parties are hoping for long-term success, or at least a second date, but will it happen?
In real life, first dates are causal. Think coffee, an average dinner or even activity-based dates such as mini golf or bowling. The goal is to get to know this person, and make clear judgments as to whether they should or shouldn’t be a part of your life.
Ah, date four has arrived. It’s time to get physical and talk seriously, right? Where do we go from here? Should we be staying at each other’s places? Do we start talking about our long-term goals?
Are you both on the same page? It’s also time to set boundaries, and truly decide who is looking for what. This is when couples realize if they are both looking for the same elements in a relationship. Things could even get a little sticky here.
Will this relationship lead to more? In real life we are ultimately searching for the one, otherwise why bother right? These relationships either come to a halt or become permanent, depending on whether someone’s expectations are met.

Starting a sugar relationship is easier than you think. Most introductions occur because both people are looking for a mutual relationship. You can skip pretenses, unknown expectations and avoid the typical nerves. For the most part, both people know what is coming next.
Dates range from casual to downright outlandish. Many Sugar Babies enter an arrangement to embrace the finer things in life, so the first date could include a range of extraordinary elements.
Relationship progression may or may not happen, and that is ok. Hey, some Sugar Babies marry their Sugar Daddy, while others only meet them once. The beauty of the sugar lifestyle is that people do not join the site with set relationship expectations.
Sugar Daddies love mutually beneficial relationships because they can also be referred to as a “relationships on your terms.” Both people have the freedom to end things when they wish.
Yes, this happens, but it is subjective. As we previously stated, happily ever after does not have to suggest marriage. A happy sugar arrangement could mean two individuals who want a discreet relationship with the option to come and go as they please. After all, happily ever after is all about freedom and mutual goals.
Did you choose a sugar lifestyle or a traditional relationship? Have you actively been pursuing both? We’d love to hear your stories –hold nothing back.
