These days, it’s very common to see younger women looking for older men. There are many advantages to dating older men, if you don’t mind the age gap. Older men are more experienced, financially secure, have their lives together, and may even want to be a lucky younger woman’s sugar daddy. Unfortunately, some women make mistakes when dating these older men. Make sure you’re not doing something on this list!
Mistake #1: Being too possessive
You may really vibe with this man and you’ve been on a few awesome dates, but that doesn’t make him yours. If you both haven’t agreed to a committed relationship, then you’re not in one. Don’t try to search his phone or ask him about his whereabouts because, frankly, it’s none of your business. It’s important to keep both your options open. If you smother him, he may move onto a new sugar baby who is less controlling.
Mistake #2: Taking him for granted
Just because he’s willing to give you money or gifts doesn’t make him a walking ATM. Show that you appreciate the things your man is willing to give you. If he feels loved an appreciated, he’s more likely to keep the gifts rolling in. If you need something, instead of outright asking for it, try mentioning it offhand and see if he offers of his own free will.
Mistake #3: Faking your personality
Don’t try to play a role with your sugar daddy. Older men are experienced and will see right through it. Do not try to manipulate or deceive your man. It might seem like a good idea to put on a front and play a role of the sweet girl next door type or the sexual marvel, but these personalities will fall apart sooner or later, and your man will feel manipulated.
Just be yourself, and if he likes who you are as a person, the relationship will last longer. If he doesn’t you would have exhausted yourself pretending and you’re better off finding someone more compatible with you.
Mistake #4: Unrealistic expectations
Don’t mistake your relationship for being more than what it is. If you are in a relationship with a sugar daddy, know that this is a business transaction first and foremost. You both may care for each other and be physically intimate, but you both probably aren’t going to fall in love and get married. Don’t expect more from the relationship than what it really is. If you experience heightened feelings for your sugar daddy, you may want to talk to him about it or bow out of the relationship to avoid getting hurt or hurting the man in the future.
Sugar relationships are thrilling and mutually beneficial, but they come with pitfalls and a learning curve. Avoiding these common mistakes will help you have a thriving and beneficial relationship with your sugar daddy for a very long time. Remember any relationship takes work, even a transactional one.
