My ex is dating a rich guy
One is that I’m a contrarian who enjoys going against the grain for the immature thrill of being defiant.One is that I’m a sex fiend and my man is more boy-toy than boyfriend.
So one day when he was at the gym, he saw this old guy with a very pretty young lady, and when Thurston expressed confusion to his trainer, his trainer explained that the geezer was her sugar daddy and that the young fawn was his sugar baby.When I joined my first sugar daddy dating website five years ago, it wasn’t to find someone to help pay the bills or provide me with a shopping allowance.It was because of an innocent penchant for the older man.I realise some readers may be shocked by what I am about to divulge, or even consider that what I did and other women do on these sites is tantamount to prostitution.I know I am setting myself up for widespread condemnation – but allow me to explain. Researchers found that in much the way a peacock flashes his feathers to attract a mate, some men use conspicuous spending to attract women: The catch is that the guys doing the big spending to bait women are supposedly only looking for a short-term relationship.
How money plays into sex, dating and marriage is an often-studied topic. Catherine Hakim released in January showed that women are choosing richer husbands, or "marrying up" more today than they did in the 1940s.
I was in my late twenties, a television producer, and fresh out of a suffocating three-year relationship with a man who drained both my time and my finances when I signed up. Instead, I fantasised about someone older, more sophisticated, more established.
And, if I’m being honest, someone with some money, too.
Well, you could barely keep Thurston on a lat-press machine after that.
He dashed home and did some Googling and found Seeking Arrangement.com, a site built for wealthy (to varying degrees) men who are seeking a formal (to varying degrees) arrangement for sex and (to varying degrees) companionship with someone who in turn is looking for cash and prizes without any drama.
If I were inclined to listen to conventional wisdom, I would be forced to conclude that I’m doing terribly in the mating market.
