I know what you’re thinking, sugar daddies are pimps and sugar babies don’t have two brain cells to rub together. 

I’m not here to judge, I completely get that stereotype. Sugar relationships have had a bad rap in the past, however, they’re now more popular than ever. Why? Because people are finally understanding what a sugar relationship really is. 

Are you not so sure? Don’t worry, let’s go through this together. Here’s a look at some of the misconceptions of sugar relationships.


Myth #1: That sugar daddies are players

These guys have twenty-five different girls that they rotate on a daily basis and throw cash around like it’s monopoly money – wrong. There’s this idea that men who are sugar daddies are womanizers and players. 

Okay, honestly, there are some guys that are players, there’s no point denying that. But, in many cases, these men are businessmen who are too busy to invest in a committed and serious relationship. So, why not have a sugar baby who understands that you’re only looking for a casual relationship? 

When you think about it, it’s actually more respectful that they’re not engaging in a relationship where the girl is waiting around for them and hoping for something more.


Myth #2: Sugar babies are dumb and uneducated

When people think of sugar babies, they think of bimbos. People who just sit at home, waiting for some sugar daddy to hold their hand through life. 

I mean, that’s how Hollywood shows them. But things aren’t always how they seem. 

Most of these women are educated, employed and simply looking for a sugar daddy who, sure, spoils them, but also spends time with them travelling, eating delicious food and enjoying a night out on the town. Who doesn’t like that?


Myth #3: It’s all about the sex

If you’re a sugar baby, you’re the main task is to put out, like you’re some sort of sex-machine. Yeah, right. If that was the case, being a sugar baby would be so easy. 

Sugar relationships come in all sorts of arrangements. Some sugar daddies just want companionship. It really depends on what you and your sugar daddy agree to. 

Remember you are not obligated to do anything you don’t want to.


Myth #4: Sugar babies need to look like Ken and Barbie

To be a sugar baby, you have to have the fake boobs, the puffy lips, the long platinum blonde hair and of course, the juicy ass. You’re wrong again.

Like any generalization, of course, there are sugar babies that look like that. But, there are also many sugar babies that aren’t trying to mimic a Barbie doll. 

You can have an opinion as a sugar baby, you don’t just have to sit at the dinner table batting your eyes. You can order the steak instead of a salad. Everybody has different tastes when it comes to what they find attractive.


Myth #5: All sugar daddies are old and married

“Oh, sugar daddies are just some old married men being unfaithful to their ignorant wives.” Again, this is another false information.

It’s true that there are married sugar daddies, but there are also widowed, divorced and single sugar daddies! We discourage infidelity, but there are married couples who fancy a polyamory relationship as a way to spice up their relationship.

Additionally, there are a lot of young and successful men who begin to embrace the sugar daddy life as their busy lifestyle makes it impossible for them to engage in a full-time relationship.

In short, sugar dating is not exclusively an old and married man’s game.

Myth #6: It’s all about the expensive gifts and fat bank accounts

Umm, no.

There’s a pervasive idea that being a sugar baby means you will be able to gain easy cash, fly in private jets, go on endless shopping sprees and have a foreseeable bright future. This is true in some ways. It is part of the experience that sugar babies go through to receive big cheques and being pampered with all the above mentioned.

Nonetheless, sugar babies have something a bit more practical in mind. For some, it can be about survival (especially during the current pandemic times), or for some it can be about building connections with people you normally wouldn’t be able to.


Myth #7: Sugar relationships are not real relationships

Let’s just get this straight – they’re relationships. Perhaps they’re not serious relationships but if you’re spending quality time together, sitting down for dinner together and travelling together – you’re together. 

Many people think that you can’t have a meaningful relationship with your sugar daddy/baby. However, you guys will decide on the level of intimacy that you two will have. 

So, maybe the relationship will be very one-dimensional, however, in other cases, they’ll be very intimate and complex. The choice is really up to you. Or maybe it will happen naturally, it’s a relationship, you know how these things work.


Bottom Line

Sugar dating might be a lifestyle that’s not acceptable for everyone. However, it can be a brilliant and unconventional route for people to connect with others and broaden their experiences in life!
