What’s the Best Age Range for a Sugar Daddy?
The common assumption is that sugar daddies tend to be older, more mature men. But when it comes to the best sugar daddies – older isn’t necessarily better.
In fact, we’ve found that contrary to popular belief – there are many capable and generous sugar daddies who fall into rather young age brackets. Here’s a roundup of our personal experiences with sugar daddy age:
- Ages 25 to 30: Every once in awhile, you’ll come across a potential sugar daddy who’s in his late 20s. And sure, a few of them might actually have sugar daddy potential but they are very, very rare. Plus, even the ones who are financially capable of being sugar daddies are not necessarily mature or well-versed enough in the art of taking care of a woman to make a long-term arrangement work. We say “Pass.”
- Ages 30 to 35: This is a surprisingly great age bracket for sugar daddies. Potential sugar daddies around this age group are easy enough to come by and ‘though they don’t typically have huge resources, they do come with other perks like being single and childless (i.e. more disposable income). Also, because they’re close enough in age to you, they’re more relatable and no one will look twice if they see the two of you together. If you’re looking for an ‘undercover sugar daddy,’ this is your go-to age bracket.
- Ages 35 to 45: This is our favorite age bracket for sugar daddies. Men in their late 30s and early 40s are at the perfect sugar daddy sweet spot – i.e. they’re at a high point in their careers and are earning substantial incomes, have solid net worth and often they’re still single and childless. More earnings and less obligations translates to higher allowance for you – plus, these men are also young enough to not elicit sugar daddy suspicion 😉
*SeekingArrangement proves that the popular misconception of an old sugar daddy is false – the average age of sugar daddies on the site is…39 years old.
- Ages 45 to 55: Many sugar daddies – most, probably – fall within this age bracket. And it’s a great age for a sugar daddy to be – they’re stable, mature, and experienced enough to take care of your needs and talk through the terms of an arrangement, etc. The downside is, though, that men in this age bracket tend to be attached (whether still married or divorced and with kids) so there is a high chance of other financial obligations in his life apart from you. As in, you’re not the priority. Plus, if you’re a young sugar baby in her early 20s – the age difference may simply be too much for any meaningful connection or friendship between you.
- Ages 55+: There’s a lot of sugar baby controversy over much older sugar daddies – some of us love ’em and some of us plainly don’t. This one’s a huge toss-up so we’ll just go over the pros and cons. The main perk: he will spoil you. The main downside: you won’t be able to really “go out” with him.
All in all, when it comes to age – it is mostly just a number as you’ll find great sugar daddies from all age brackets.
That being said, when it comes to practicality and good old ease – we prefer someone who’s around 35 to 45, simply for the relatability factor as well as the comfort of being able to be seen with them in public without prompting stares and tongue wagging.
It all comes down to personal preference.
What’s the Best Sugar Daddy Profession?
So you’re considering various potential sugar daddies across several sugar dating sites (like you should be!) and you’re wondering…which profession(s) do the best sugar daddies belong to? After all, sugar daddies hail from a huge variety of career paths.
According to SeekingArrangement, here’s the breakdown of how sugar daddies make a living (big enough to provide your allowance :))…
Of course, there is no one profession that automatically makes someone a great sugar daddy. You could just as well find a wonderful sugar daddy who’s a dentist or an auto shop owner.
That being said, some career paths are better than others, especially when it comes to sugar daddies. Here are our favorite professions for sugar daddies:
Entrepreneurs. By entrepreneur, we’re not exactly talking Mark Zuckerberg – we’re simply referring to a class of men (and women) who know how to create value and sell it. Entrepreneurs exist in every market – he might be running a software business or own a chain of fitness franchises – so don’t worry if you don’t live around silicon valley. Just keep your eyes open and you’ll definitely find a few wherever you live.
Investors. We noticed over the years that investor make great sugar daddies and ‘though we’re not totally sure why – we’re going to guess that it’s because investors understand that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, especially in dating and relationships. Instead of setting themselves up for unwanted costs (i.e. divorce, relationship drama), they find it simpler to “rent” a relationship that’s more clear cut. Perhaps because of this, they tend to make appreciative sugar daddies who intrinsically understand the value you’re bringing to the table.
The above professions are both fantastic because they basically mint their own money. As in, they’re not working for a paycheck so their concept of money (making and giving) is drastically different from even the high-paid executive.
They can also contribute something to your life that’s even more valuable than a regular allowance: knowledge. You know that saying that you are the average of the 5 people you hang out with? Well, make damn sure your SD is among the smartest you can find (and entrepreneurs and investors often are).
What we especially love about these 2 career types is that most of them actually love – or at least are obsessed with – what they do. So they’ll keep themselves very busy so you’ll be able to have a full life of your own. They also have fairly flexible schedules, which may be a perk or a downside for you.
What Personality Types Make the Best Sugar Daddies?
This one is easy. Generous men who are givers by nature. Some men just really enjoy taking care of people. It comes naturally for them. This is another reason we like business owners and entrepreneurs – these people run companies, hire and manage employees.
They’re well-accustomed to understanding and taking care of their people ’cause if they didn’t, their companies would suffer. These skills translate well to the sugar world 🙂
Just keep in mind, though – givers (smart givers) tend to go for other givers. If you come across as too entitled, spoiled and with an attitude that screams “what’s in it for me?!” – the best, generous sugar daddies are going to pass on you.
Think first what you have to offer your sugar daddy, what you can do to make his life happier and easier and you’ll attract the right types to you.
Are the Best Sugar Daddies Experienced or Newbies?
In our experience, the best sugar daddies have usually had previous successful arrangements. Not only do these previous arrangements help the sugar daddy define what works for him and what doesn’t (thus, he’s likely to have a much better idea of what he wants), but he’ll also be better equipped to anticipate your needs as well as problems that can arise in mutually beneficial relationships.
But as much as we like experienced sugar daddies – there are exceptions. We’ve found that newbie sugar daddies who’ve taken the time to think about why they want an arrangement and what sort of arrangement would work for them also make great sugar daddies.
Are the Best Sugar Daddies Single or Attached?
This is a personal preference, but we stand by “single.”
Even from a monetary viewpoint, it makes sense. Single, unattached men simply have more disposable income. Attached men may want to give you more, but fact of the matter is that most wives control the purse strings and even if they don’t – when it comes down to investing in his child(ren) vs investing in his sugar baby…who do you think the married man is going to choose?
On top of that, married and unattached sugar daddies usually have more boundaries and controls in place that you’ll have to adhere to. You’ll only be able to see him at select times, he’ll be the one calling you and never the other way around, etc.
These sorts of arrangements can work really well if you’re a sugar baby who plans to date other men (and sugar daddies) on the side, but if you’re looking for a more involved sugar relationship – it’s best to opt out. There’s nothing worse than getting romantically attached to a man who’s already attached – especially if he’s your sugar daddy.
