Tell us about yourself: who are you?
Hello lovely people, nice to meet you, I’m Lindsey! I identify as a Jewish-American bisexual female, I am 23 years old, I currently work in an internship with a non-profit, and I am looking for a job.
I’m independent, love exploring and adventure, like to be outside, and hang out with my family as much as possible. I also hope to go to graduate school soon and get my masters in social work.
What were your goals in starting the sugar journey?
When I first started sugaring 3 months ago, I had just gotten out of a bad relationship. I saw Brandon Wade on YouTube talking about how love doesn’t exist and how every relationship is built on some form of a give and take.
I have always been a very sexual person and have never related love with sex very much. I also hate being in debt, and Sugaring seemed like a good way to start paying off student loans by doing something that comes easily and naturally to me.
In the end, money is definitely why I started doing this, although I know that is not the case for all SBs (I hate the term Sugar Baby). I wouldn’t say that I’m obsessed with having money or being wealthy, I just don’t want to worry about not having enough money all the time.
I have made 1k/month so far. Seeing my student loans go from 43k to 40k in such a short period of time, while I was still working 60hrs/week at an internship, was very rewarding.
What do you wish you’d known when you were first starting out?
I wish I had known that successful sugar relationships are built on a connection, not on sex. If your Daddies don’t care about you as a person, the relationship and benefits won’t be as stable.
Editor’s Note: This could not be more true – establishing an emotional connection with your SD is the smartest way to sustain a happy, long term sugar relationship.
Here are some articles to help you do just that:

How to Snag a Sugar Daddy and Keep Him Hooked On You
Where and how did you meet your sugar daddy? If online, which site?
I have met my Sugar Daddies on SeekingArrangement (the website Brandon Wade created). My profile picture is a goofy picture of me camping, and shows no skin. I think that this shows more of my personality and helps Sugar Daddies to see that I am down to earth and wouldn’t make great arm candy.
It also looks different from the usual profile picture, which I hope attracts the kind of men that are right for me. I also specifically put in my profile that I am looking for help with loans, for those few Sugar Daddies that are looking for relationships where monetary compensation is not included.
Editor’s Note: It’s crucial to differentiate yourself from your profile from the get-go, since it helps you narrow down the pool of potential SDs to those that would be the best fit for you!
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!
What’s your favorite thing about being a sugar baby?
I feel like I can access anything I want or need. I don’t ask to get pampered with jewelry, clothes, or fancy dinners, so when I really need something, I can ask a Sugar Daddy for it.
Since I am just now establishing relationships, I haven’t asked for anything other than a few donations to the non-profit I’m with. In the next few weeks, I plan on asking different Daddies for new glasses, therapy to help me with a recent death in the family, and an apartment.
How do you keep your sugar relationship spicy/fun/interesting?
You don’t always have to go to dinner. I like going on dates to amusement parks, miniature golf, museums, etc.
Public places are best, but once you establish a mutual trust, road trips and camping can be fun! Just make sure that you enjoy will enjoy their company for longer periods of time first.
What advice would you give aspiring sugar babies?
Spend time and effort trying to find a sugar daddy. For every 20 people you meet, only one may be compatible.
If you dwell on the potential relationships that went sour, you will turn Sugar Daddies off by being too upfront or aggressive.
Let things move slowly, and don’t let yourselves get hurt by the assholes who mistreat or lie to you! A quality I have learned as a sugar baby is how to move on from bad relationships.
