Browsing through all the potential Sugar Daddies can leave a girl wondering: who are these men and what do they want? Arrangements are tricky, especially when you’re not sure what you’re looking for.
A big misconception is that everyone on SA is looking for the same thing. Every relationship is different, and sugaring is no exception to the rule. While perusing through profiles, I noticed a few common archetypes. Shown here are identifying profile features, what they say about each guy.
Seeing a closely cropped picture of a torso is pretty standard. Usually they’re taken from an awkward selfie-style angle, or he’ll choose a mirror shot complete with water spots. This kind of pic means he’s in shape, but not comfortable with the web of online dating since he doesn’t want to reveal his face. These kind of Sugar Daddies prefer email to text, and likely wants a pay-per-meet arrangement. After your first date, he will open up about his ideal woman.
Listing your status as “married” is a bold move, because potential women could be turned off by this. Contrary to the notion of a mistress, a Sugar Baby doesn’t seek to replace the wife. A married Daddy does have a few perks, and they aren’t all looking for sex. While he’s probably not interested in getting a divorce, he is looking for a distraction from his mundane life. It’s dinner, not adultery. Note that those who list “separated” are technically still married.
Lacking a picture doesn’t mean this guy lacks a soul. The men on SA are established, and usually high profile. Withholding his picture should be temporary, but don’t be surprised if he wants to meet in person without sending you a pic. As long as you use common sense and meet in a public place, this guy is no more risky than anyone else online. You never know, it could be Clinton or Hefner behind the mask, and you could be the next famous Sugar Baby.
The dorkier the better. There is something weirdly hot about a smart suitor, especially a rich one. This geek is sure to treat you like a lady, and will be excited to spend his money on a girl who actually wants to spend time with him. Founder and CEO, Brandon Wade, falls into this category. (And have you seen his beautiful wife!?)
Not all SDs are looking for casual relationships. Some men are looking for a serious partner and a traditional dating experience. Dating is time consuming, and these guys don’t see the point in treating an average, unwifeable girl to an expensive meal. Physical attraction is high on this guy’s list of priorities, and that’s why he came to SA. Be prepared to be straight up with the marriage minded male, and don’t waste his time searching for Mrs. Right.
An extra wide age gap shouldn’t scare you off. What he lacks in youth, he makes up for in connections and wisdom. More time on this Earth means years of soirees and networking, where he has forged bonds with the who’s who of everything. If you need help, he’s got a guy. While the physical sentiment won’t be as strong as your lust for chiseled ab guy, he will be a mannered gentleman at all times.
The majority of men on the site fall into this category. Busy professionals who don’t want a relationship, but also aren’t in search of a fling. The true beauty of Sugar is the honesty. The woman he wants is available, but not desperate. She’s passionate and young, but mature enough to take to swanky parties. He will understand the value of your time, and compensate you for keeping him company on the nights he gets out of the office before 9pm.
These are the Daddies of our lives. Deciding what you want in an arrangement is the first step to finding the perfect SD, and helping him find you.
