Can sugar dating turn into long term relationships?

A question that we get a lot at SugarDaters is whether or not we think that a relationship that was founded on Sugar Dating could blossom into something else.

The short answer is yes, but the long answer is more than that. Sugar Dating aren’t cut and dry, just like the people that are having affairs, the reasons are complex and no Sugar Dating relationship is quite like another one. You have to realize that there is definitely a possibility for you to meet the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with, but there are some caveats that are going to make it harder to start a new relationship from Sugar Dating rather than a regular one.

One of these is the fact that the both of you will still be attracted to one another in the beginning. Since a Sugar Dating relationship tend to be temporary, you’re never quite sure how they’re going to end up. Make sure that you’re giving your partner the right signals and not jumping the gun when it comes to your feelings on the matter. It’s easy to become emotionally attached to someone, particularly if intimacy is what has been missing in your life and is what got you into this in the first place. You want to make sure that you’re reading the signs right so communication is very important here.

Trust is also a huge factor, and since you’re both getting into this based on money (her) and feelings (him), this can be difficult. If we’re going to be honest it’s probably better for you and your partner to maintain a long term affair rather than rushing into a relationship when you don’t know each other well. We know, we know, it’s tempting, but you have to keep the rest of your life balanced against what you want for the short term.

Since no relationship is the same and thus, no partner is the same we can’t say how to guarantee that a relationship based on money will last. There are no cut and dry guidelines, but we would suggest that you use common sense and don’t fool yourself.

Some people will say that a relationship founded on Sugar Dating is doomed to fail from the get go. A relationship based on money is probably going to fail or one that is not based on open communication and instead focuses on fulfilling one specific need.

In the end, it all depends on what you want and what you’re looking for.
