A Surprising New Place to Meet a Future Sugar Daddy

Beautiful romantic couple of lovers

If you’re on the hunt for a sugar daddy, you know it isn’t always as easy as walk­ing into a bar, cud­dling up to a hand­some older man, and call­ing it a night. It usu­ally takes just a lit­tle more effort to find a sugar daddy worth keep­ing, but it helps if you know where to look. The next time you’re invited to a wed­ding, you should join in the fes­tiv­i­ties because, as a new sur­vey reveals, there’s a good chance you could meet some­one. If you’re a younger woman on the hunt for a sugar daddy, wed­dings are a good place to start looking.

A pop­u­lar dat­ing web site recently polled 1,000 of its active mem­bers and found that almost half of the sin­gle women (46%) and almost three-quarters of sin­gle men (74%) are on the look­out for poten­tial part­ners as soon as they get to the wed­ding. Almost a third of the respon­dents agreed that a wed­ding is the best func­tion to meet a future mate, be it a sugar daddy/sugar baby or a more tra­di­tional relationship.

It makes total sense—nothing makes you more des­per­ate for com­pan­ion­ship than show­ing up to a love-fest when you’re sin­gle. It might sound like you’re just tak­ing advan­tage of a sin­gle person’s vul­ner­a­bil­ity at a wed­ding, but if you’re both in the same boat, why not pad­dle together?

The next time you’re at a wed­ding and you scope out a poten­tial sugar daddy, here are some tips to help get the ball rolling:

• If you spot an older man who you think you might be inter­ested in pur­su­ing, keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn’t have a wife or girl­friend that’s just stepped away. By doing some dis­creet observ­ing, you’ll be able to tell pretty quickly if he’s fly­ing solo. Is he look­ing around a lot? Does his body lan­guage look wel­com­ing? (Hands on his hips are good; arms crossed over his chest are bad.)

• Try to make eye con­tact with your poten­tial sugar daddy and then flash him a coy smile so that he knows you’re interested.

• Don’t just wait around for him to make the first move—you don’t want to risk another sin­gle woman swoop­ing in on him. Strike up a con­ver­sa­tion by intro­duc­ing your­self and ask­ing how he knows the bride and groom. Keep him hooked by ask­ing him to get a drink at the bar, or if a good song comes on while you’re chat­ting, ask him to dance.

• Don’t get too sloshed at the bar. The last thing you want to do is come across sloppy and des­per­ate when you talk to your future sugar daddy. Older men don’t have the patience to deal with too much emo­tional baggage—you may be younger, but you still want to give the impres­sion that you’re classy and mature.
