When people think about being a sugar baby, the first thing that comes to their mind are very young and supple twenty something girls. Certainly not a 39 year old mother of two.
Yet, here I am. I am Anna and I am a sugar baby.
I decided to try SugarDaters in 2015, after the umpteenth awkward date hastily arranged on the dating site of that week. Tinder, Badoo, e-harmony, POF, OkCupid, Bumble. I tried them all. I am not sure if it was the algorithms, the quantity of possible pursuers or just my bad luck, but I ended up in a chain of borderline disastrous meetups. Offline, it was not that much different. I had similar outcomes with the classic approaches too, like the blind-date-with- a- friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend, the tipsy-bar-night and an occasional speed-dating event. Our interests rarely matched, let alone our needs, expectations or necessities.
