As humans we walk through life full of expectations. When entering into a new relationship those involved will each bring their own expectations to the table. There is nothing wrong with having expectations, but problems often occur when these expectations go unmentioned. Additionally, unreasonable expectations can often be the downfall of an otherwise good relationship.
Learning how to manage your expectations is an important part of maintaining a healthy relationship. The following are some things to keep in mind as you navigate through your Sugar relationship.
Be sure to tell your partner what your expectations and needs are upfront. Make sure you are honest about your deal breakers, but be reasonable. Remember, nobody is perfect (not even you). It’s also important to listen when your Sugar Baby expresses her expectations; the more in-tune you are with each other the more successful your arrangement will be.
There should always be room for compromise in any healthy relationship. You shouldn’t expect your Sugar Baby to change everything about herself in order to suit your needs and you shouldn’t be expected to do so either. Your Sugar Baby probably isn’t as experienced with interpersonal communication as you are so take these opportunities to teach her how to effectively work through conflict. Work on accepting each other’s differences, you might even grow to appreciate those things.
Mutually beneficial relationships are supposed to be just that–beneficial to all parties involved. If the relationship is no longer enhancing your life then it’s time to speak up. If your needs are no longer being met or if the arrangement is no longer fun, be honest. Sometimes there is an easy way to fix the situation, other times it’s just time to move on.
There should be a level of mutual respect between a Sugar Daddy and a Sugar Baby. Both members of the relationship should feel comfortable with expressing their likes and dislikes. At the end of the day most people just want to feel like their voice is heard.
