A lot of has changed in terms of gender roles in relationships over the past few decades. Both men and women have assumed decision-making rules in today’s modern society, very unlike what might have been the case in the 50s. People are also accepting and embracing newer relationship dynamics and forms such as sugar dating, however, many amongst us still consider this a taboo topic. This is why even practicing Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies are afraid to embrace their roles in public and choose to keep their arrangements private.
However, despite all the shifts in gender roles, if we look closely, men always pay for almost everything from dinner dates to recreational activities. The truth is men are often sugar daddies even when they don’t realize it while dating.
Imagine you finally decide to take some time off from your hectic routine and decide to get away with your wife and kids for a few days. Everything’s sorted; you have applied for leave at work and have your itinerary planned. It is now time to get on the web, find a great Airbnb apartment and book it for your dates. Wouldn’t your partner be expecting you to pay? Granted that this might be perceived as a gesture of showing that you value your relationship, but there are sure are other ways to show just that. The fact of the matter that men always paying is a tradition that is so deeply rooted in our system that we can’t seem to find a way out.
Being on a Sugar Daddy, on the other hand, does have a monetary aspect to it but brings a lot of other benefits into the equation and eliminates confusions. What if men sometimes just pay because they think the society expects them too.
What If Men Don’t Always Want to Pay
Our society has loads of expectations from us, some fair and some unfair. The society we live has always expected the man to pay on first dates which then transfers to everything afterward. Things as basic as grocery or saving for a house might get partners to allocate individual budgets for them, but when it comes to vacations or dinner dates, men almost pay and often times it is not because they want to pay, it is because that’s the way it always has been. Wouldn’t it be desirable to have a relationship where everything is planned for in a balanced manner? Are there ways to avoid not having to pay each time?
How To Create a Balance?
Once one decides they don’t want to pay all the time, the first thing they can do is to talk about the same with their partner and set some ground rules. If not approached in the right manner, this might get a lot trickier than it sounds and you might end giving a wrong impression to your partner…unless you are a Sugar Daddy.
Sugar arrangements give partners a chance to openly talk about expectations and managing them. Not only is it easier to set ground rules, but you do also get an extraordinary relationship in return as well. A relationship that is balanced, does not involve any unnecessary stress and is strictly mutually beneficial.
Another approach to manage money matters in your relationship can be to try and define clear roles about what’s going to happen in certain situations. Partners may talk to each other regarding when one of them is expected to pay and when not. Again, this might get super awkward super quite swiftly. On the other hand, partners in sugar arrangements expect each other to set rules so the relationship runs smoothly. Honestly laying out the expectations on the table isn’t awkward at all and is actually the base of a successful sugar relationship.
So with Sugar Daddies still responsible for paying for leisure and dates, how does it differ from any man who does the same in a vanilla relationship?
Sugar arrangements are perfect when it comes to creating a relationship that benefits both partners equally. No one is expecting to read their mind since expectations are clearly defined from day one. As a Sugar Daddy, you are still the one who is providing, but you will also be getting what you want without any mind games getting in the way. Moreover, unlike vanilla relationships, sugar arrangements let you take responsibility of expectations you think you are truly ready for. No one’s asking you to dedicate all of your time to them.
You meet with your Sugar Daddy, you both enjoy each other’s company, fulfilling each other’s needs and are also able to lead lives of your own outside of a sugar arrangement. These relationships truly are no-strings-attached. Perfect for people who feel they don’t have time running after others for them to take care of their needs, a sugar arrangement means more time for you to what you want to do. And this is true for both partners, which leaves every Sugar Daddy and Sugar Baby feeling satisfied, happy and fulfilled, both as a couple and individually.
