The money runs out. While this seems like a rude, gold digging thing to do, it’s a realistic situation. Sometimes things happen. A sugar daddy gets a new lady and stops being so generous with you because, well, he’s spending it elsewhere. If you’ve become accustomed to receiving certain benefits and gifts from your lover, but they start to dwindle, it could mean that he has another sugar baby in the picture. Watch for less calls and/or texts too. But it could also be an issue with his business or personal life. At one point, my sugar daddy’s firm lost a lot of money on a big case, and he cut back on some of his spending on frivolous vacations and gifts. Most sugar daddies will let you know if something major happens and they can’t keep up their end of the arrangement—or at least they should.
Unrealistic expectations. Sometimes sugar daddies and older men in general are just looking for arm candy. They want a girl to hang out with, to have fun with, and to spoil and spend money on. But other times, they are actually looking for more than just a one night stand or a hot girl to party with. Some guys are legitimately looking for a long-term relationship. At first, my lover was very up-front with letting me know that he would help with my bills and we would have fun, but it wasn’t meant to go anywhere. I didn’t expect him to spend every waking hour with me or to leave his wife for me. Some women get attached way too fast and want things to go further with their sugar daddy. This can cause all kinds of problems, especially if your man is married. It can go the other way too—you might just be looking for something casual, but your sugar daddy is expecting a lot more from you out of the relationship. This is obviously a huge deal breaker.
Domestic issues. Be on your guard when you meet someone new, especially when it comes to dating web sites. If you think you’ve hooked a potential sugar daddy, it goes without saying to always be careful. Never let your partner, sugar daddy or otherwise, get possessive or become controlling, and never let anyone put their hands on your “assets” without your permission. My girlfriend had one sugar daddy who treated her like an object. He became very controlling and jealous of her whenever they were out in public together. This is a huge deal breaker and can also be scary.
Always remain honest, up-front, and comfortable being yourself around potential suitors. This really helps to keep the relationship going, and if you run into a deal breaker, decide if the relationship is worth your while or not. If it’s not worth it, then move on—there’s plenty more where he came from.
