Tell us about yourself: who are you?
Hello fellow sugar babies! My Name is Ellie. I am a 19 year old, bisexual, British, art student. I’m in love with all things cultural; I speak English and French (and a handful of other languages on a basic level). I love traveling, but most of my money goes towards shoes, makeup and books.
What were your goals in starting the sugar journey?
Initially I wanted to meet new and interesting people. I love talking to people and you find the most fascinating and diverse set of people on online dating sites. The SD/SB relationship was always something I’ve joked about and I thought I’d give it a whirl. It’s been a year and I’m still loving it!
What do you wish you’d known when you were first starting out?
That some Daddies do NOT want to be your friend. Believe me when I say I’m not blind to misogyny – I’d consider myself a feminist – but I was not prepared for the sheer amount of disrespect I would get online for not finding someone to my liking. At first it was quite upsetting being called every obscenity under the sun for simply saying “no thank you” but now I just brush it off and hit the block button!
Where and how did you meet your sugar daddy? If online, which site?
I met my current SD online at Seeking Arrangement. We connected over our mutual love of the artistic and creative industry. Our relationship is still developing, but he is a great friend and mentor.
I doubt our relationship will go much further than a friendship (which I like because I’m not overly sexually attracted to men) and I have expressed this clearly early on, but he’s accepting and we talk often. Really this is the best SD relationship I have had – he is a kindred spirit.
Seeking Arrangements is one of the most popular sugar dating websites but it’s certainly not the only one. Check out our reviews for the best sugar daddy websites!
Do you have any profile or online dating tips for aspiring sugar babies?
I find that most of the decent daddies want someone who can carry an intelligent conversation, so I’d add that to your profile if it’s not on there already.
Of course a cute picture or two does hurt your odds, but pick it to attract the kind of man you want; if you want a gentleman don’t go for anything too revealing (save those for later on in the relationship) but if you want a bad boy type then by all mean get your cleavage all up in them photos.
Try to be as honest as possible on your profile – lies will only come back to bite you in the ass!
What’s your favorite thing about being a sugar baby?
While I would obviously say that the gifts and money are a definite plus of being a sugar baby it wouldn’t be my top reason. I think the world experience I have gained from speaking to people, trying new things with them and traveling to new places far outweighs the monetary value of the gifts they give.
How do you keep your sugar relationship spicy/fun/interesting?
This strongly depends on the SD. I think the good thing about all my sugar relationships was that they were never intended to last – so when either my SD or I was fed up then we would go our separate ways.
However I always find trying something neither of you have ever done before keeps things interesting. It often rekindles the passion/humor/enjoyment in the relationship. These don’t necessarily have to be sexual – never been skydiving? Try it out together. Never baked a certain desert? Try baking it together and see what happens.
What advice would you give aspiring sugar babies?
Don’t get put off by what you think other people will say. Most SD/SB relationships are very discreet and no one ever need know. Be your own person and don’t get discouraged if some men don’t like that – eventually you will find one who loves you for it.
Never settle for a SD who isn’t doing what’s right for you, sugar relationships are built on a mutually beneficial arrangement so don’t do everything for someone who does nothing in return.
