sugar baby safety tips

Dating older and wealthy men can be fun. But there are always a bunch of rotten people who might spoil any party. The true challenge is to recognize true potential safe sugar daddies from a pool of good and bad ones. Here are a few tips on how to go about them:

Keep your personal information safe

In the beginning, for an ice breaker, it becomes necessary to share information about you like your phone number, the place where you live, your workplace, your school, your college, etc. However, do not be hasty and rush toward it. Have complete knowledge about whom you are dealing with before you divulge any information. Ensure they are trustable with whom you can have a mutually beneficial relationship before you give out any information. You can share all the information once the relationship is more stable and mutually beneficial.

Protect yourself from a sugar number

You need not always share your personal number. Maybe you can have an alternative number that is specialized for sugar dating. You can have all kinds of contacts through this. This will ensure you do not have any unnecessary problems from any scams or frauds that are looking out to take advantage of you. It will keep your personal and professional life quite far away from this aspect of your life making things more stress-free and safe for you.

Do not compromise on the gift

Sugar daddies will be eager to shower gifts on you to gain your trust and impress you. They might want to send you small appreciations. Do not immediately send your bank details or postal address. You can send your PayPal details and set up a P.O. Box address which can be easily shared with them. But never compromise on any forms of gifts as the relationship is purely mutually beneficial.

Phone conversations are a must

Everyone might not be great in a phone conversation, but sometimes it is easier to identify creepy ones on a phone chat. A few of them might have bad phone conversations and you might want to meet them personally and give them another chance. However, a pervert can sometimes be easily recognized and you can save yourself from such people. This will help you easily select the right people from a list of potential sugar daddies.

Identity check on a potential sugar daddy

There is nothing shameful about doing a background check on a potential sugar daddy to ensure your personal safety. Some of them might choose to be anonymous while most of them will share a name and phone number. This information will be enough to do a thorough background checkup regarding their lifestyle, family, and other information. This will give you an idea of whether they are legitimate or not. Also, you need to check them on the list of sex offenders, to ensure your personal safety.

Public Meeting

Always be willing to meet only in a public place. No matter how tempting their offer might be, the first meeting should be in a public place. Politely decline any private meeting in houses or hotels for the first few times. After the mutual trust is built, these meetings can be encouraged.
