Most sugar daddies will tell you that having a sugar baby will likely change your life in many significant ways. But no matter how thoroughly you have weighed your decision or how much thought you have given it, there is nothing that can prepare you for becoming a sugar daddy in the way that actual experience can. There are numerous factors to consider when making a decision, most of them having to do with the changes that a sugar baby will bring to your life.
Make no mistake about it: there will be changes. Even the gentlest, kindest, and most low-maintenance sugar baby will have an effect on you, and these effects are likely to spill over into various other areas of your life as well.
But take heart. Change isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and they might even do you some good. If you go into a sugar dating relationship with an open mind and a thorough realization of what it entails, you could very well be making a change for the better. One thing is for sure: your life will never be the same again after your experience!
Getting ready for the changes
In many ways, embarking on a new relationship is as significant as moving to a new home or relocating to a new city. You can’t simply uproot yourself and plant yourself in a new setting without adequate preparation. In order to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible and that you are able to go on being in control of your life, you will have to lay the groundwork for the changes that will inevitably come about.
What sort of changes can you expect? For one thing, a significant portion of your time will now be devoted to someone else. You can opt to spend minimal time with your sugar baby of course, but you will probably want to be spending as much time with her as you possibly can in order to maximize the benefits you will derive from the arrangement. This means much less time available for you to spend with the other people in your life.
When your children are a factor
One area wherein this could potentially be a problem is when you have young children. If your children are still young enough that they depend on you to be a constant presence in their lives, suddenly having you become unavailable could take some getting used to. Much of your effort would then have to be directed toward accommodating your new sugar baby into your life in a way that does not affect your time with your children adversely. It will take a bit of a balancing act to be sure, but you owe it to your children to continue to be there for them regardless of your decision.
You will have to prepare yourself financially for being a sugar daddy of course. Unless you are wealthy well beyond your needs, the costs involved in being a sugar daddy will likely weigh heavily on your finances. You should therefore make sure that you are able to support your sugar baby in the manner that she expects while still being able to address your other financial needs.
The day-to-day aspects of a sugar dating relationship
For both sugar daddies and sugar babies, one of the most common mistakes is focusing on the big events in the relationship, while neglecting the more mundane day-to-day aspects. Far too often, there is a fixation on the extremes of the ups and downs without realizing that these are usually few and far between. In between all the peaks and lows of a relationship, there is the day-to-day of real life to consider, and this will actually make up the bulk of your time together.
Realizing this has a number of implications. One is that a sugar dating relationship isn’t always all about the upheavals and the moments of elation and ecstasy. Weeks and weeks can go by without anything major occurring, and this can give the impression of the relationship being much less exciting than it is.
For another, you will have to figure out a way how to get from one episode to another without having the relationship become stagnant or to lose interest in it altogether. If you have an expectation of your relationship as one being a whirlwind of passion and romance, you will likely end up sorely disappointed.
This is not to say that settling into a boring partnership is a sure thing. However, you do have to have sufficient maturity and patience to see through the ‘dull’ periods without acting on an impulse to cut and bail. If you can weather your way through the ups and downs–as well as the periods where nothing much seems to be going on–you will have a much better chance of a lengthy and rewarding relationship.
A new outlook on life
Perhaps one of the most significant ways by which a sugar baby can affect your life is by giving you a fresh new outlook. Even if you haven’t been in a satisfying relationship for a long time, you might be surprised at how much a sugar baby can put a spring back into your step. With the ideal sugar baby by your side, you will have more to look forward to everyday, you might begin to take better care of yourself, and you may even be sufficiently inspired to carry out plans that you had long given up on. At the very least, having a sugar baby will give you one more reason to get up in the morning. For sugar daddies that haven’t been happy in a long time, that could be the single most important reason to have a sugar baby.
Welcoming a sugar baby into your life isn’t always easy, and you may have to go through a few experiences in order for all the companies to finally fall together. With any luck, you just may find your sugar baby to be one of the most important people in your life.
