Becoming a sugar baby or finding one online in the United States can be safe, easy, and fulfilling.

Sugar Relationships

Although the term “sugar baby” may come with its preconceptions, sugar relationships are about creating an emotional connection and providing companionship in the framework of mutually beneficial relationships. Sugar babies are usually young people who give company to sugar daddies or sugar mamas in exchange for financial and/or material support. People within these relationships have clear goals in life, such as wanting to live a better lifestyle or maybe starting to pay off school debt or personal bills.

Here are some dos and don’ts to consider when becoming a sugar baby.

1. Take time preparing for your first date.

Become familiar with the dynamics of sugar dating and take a moment to get to know the dating apps. There are many legitimate, well-known social media applications available online for you to download, but which will be the best for the relationship you want to have? It is important to have a clear vision of what you want and aim to achieve from each relationship you engage in before the boundaries get blurred. Most sugar babies are educated and otherwise employed outside of sugar relationships, so make sure you know what you want to get out of each individual relationship and figure out how it aligns with the rest of your life and personal goals before getting involved. It is also always a good idea to refresh yourself on the newest safety tips, too.

2. Set your boundaries.

Sugar dating is based on mutually agreed upon arrangements that both the sugar baby and the sugar daddy or sugar mama feel comfortable with. You read that right: you make clear terms as to what you want in the relationship and your sugar partner will agree to these terms for you to ensure not only your overall happiness but also your overall success. As a sugar baby, you have a veto in sugaring, and you will find someone who respects that veto power, too. Sugar dating does not follow the typical rules, so as long as you’re clear on your boundaries you should not have to worry about them being crossed.

3. Create a profile — carefully

There are some safety precautions to consider before setting up your new profile to engage in a fun and consensual sugar relationship; especially if you would like to maintain some anonymity within your “real” life outside of the dating world. For example, you may want to consider using a new or different email account, as well as a new or different phone number.

You may want to set up a Google Voice number, which is easy to do with any Google account. After downloading the app, you can text and call people without disclosing your real phone number. Maintain your privacy and avoid unwanted suitors by keeping your callers on a different line.

Before setting up your new dating profile, also consider if you would like to show or blur your face or any other identifying images within your profile pictures. You may want to reconsider showing any identifiable tattoos or defining background features/landmarks before posting because someone could use this later to find or otherwise harm you in some way. A well-thought-out profile can also ensure that you are meeting the right person for you. An in-depth profile about who you are and what you want is not only beneficial to you, it’s also alluring to potential sugar daddies and sugar mamas.

Whatever or whomever you are looking for, it may be easier to find than you think. However, remember: do not, under any circumstances, disclose personal, identifying information to someone over the internet; especially to those who you do not know.
