This Could Explain Why You’re Still Single

Sugar daddy dat­ing cer­tainly has its perks, and it goes beyond the expend­able income. Unlike sugar daddy dat­ing, con­ven­tional dat­ing is still rid­dled with blurred lines and con­tra­dic­tions, espe­cially when it comes to money.

For exam­ple, a recent poll found that seven out of 10 Amer­i­cans feel that expect­ing a date to pay for every­thing isn’t accept­able, but that it’s still the man’s job to cover the costs of the first date. The poll also found that the major­ity of respon­dents think it’s OK to pur­sue some­one because they come across as being suc­cess­ful; how­ever, they also think that it is unac­cept­able to reject some­one just because they haven’t been very suc­cess­ful. Con­fused? We don’t blame you!

Accord­ing to other find­ings from this sur­vey, both men and women con­sider per­son­al­ity when decid­ing to date some­one, but men are more likely to pri­or­i­tize a woman’s looks, while women are more likely to place a greater empha­sis on his finances and two-thirds of them would pre­fer dat­ing some­one who made more money than them—this is essen­tially what sugar daddy dat­ing is all about.

This poll goes to show that many of us still have a very tra­di­tional way of think­ing about courtship, and sugar daddy dat­ing caters to those tra­di­tional male and female roles. Men want to be with some­one who is attrac­tive, while women are inher­ently drawn to a man with the finan­cial means to pro­vide and protect.

Sugar daddy dat­ing is the best of both worlds, and it’s the type of arrange­ment that peo­ple clearly desire, even with­out real­iz­ing it. That stereo­typ­i­cal image of the rich old man and the 20-something gold dig­ger who’s sleep­ing with him just for his money really isn’t an accu­rate depic­tion of sugar daddy dating.

Many sugar daddy/sugar baby rela­tion­ships still have the same ele­ments as con­ven­tional rela­tion­ships, but with less blurred lines and clearer expec­ta­tions of the rela­tion­ship. With sugar daddy dat­ing, it’s a given that he will be the finan­cial provider, and you don’t have to worry about that awk­ward moment when the din­ner check arrives and you don’t know who’s going to pay.

So, if you’re look­ing for the kind of rela­tion­ship that’s easy, sat­is­fy­ing, and just as ful­fill­ing and com­mit­ted as a tra­di­tional rela­tion­ship, sugar daddy dat­ing might be exactly what you’re look­ing for.

What do you think: What are your thoughts on sugar daddy dat­ing and peo­ple still favor­ing tra­di­tional gen­der roles?
