If you have just recently become a sugar daddy, congratulations are definitely in order! Now is a time of renewed passion, excitement, and lust (for life that is!), and you definitely deserve all the happiness you can get out of the relationship.
In many ways however, this is only the beginning of the rest of your life. There still remains a lot to be done in order to ensure that your experience as rewarding and as fulfilling as possible. One of the most significant challenges that you now face is trying to bridge the age gap between you and your partner.
Of course, not every sugar dating relationship requires you to meet your partner halfway in terms of interests and opinions. Many sugar daddies are quite happy to have a strictly-defined arrangement in which they simply provide for the financial needs of their sugar baby. In return, they expect nothing more than of the sugar baby to be available as often as agreed upon. In such situations, affection and closeness aren’t really essential, and the sugar daddy may feel no need to have to share a deeper connection with his sugar baby.
However, if you would like to develop a more intimate relationship that has a better chance of becoming something more than a sugar dating arrangement, finding common ground with your partner becomes a somewhat more important concern. This article will hopefully help you find a way to achieve that.
The challenges of being the older partner
Being the older partner automatically places a number of obstacles in your way. Depending on how much older you are than your sugar baby, there could be a considerable age gap between you two. Unless you are especially young in your outlook, the gap could be very difficult to overcome.
It is a somewhat unfortunate reality that most people tend to become more conservative in their outlook as they grow older. The rapid and constant changes in speech, culture, fashion, and social norms may make it exceedingly difficult to catch up. The world can be quite a bewildering place for an older sugar daddy, especially if he hasn’t exactly made a conscious effort to stay up to date.
Bridging the age gap
There are a number of ways by which you can bridge the age gap between you and your sugar baby, or at least make it less of an issue in your relationship. This is a lot easier to accomplish if you are a naturally curious and inquisitive person for whom life is a continuing learning process. If you can avoid the tendency of older people to close themselves off to new experiences and changes in their ways of thinking, you will be that much close to finding common ground with your younger sugar baby.
There is a saying that goes: “You are only as old as you think you are.” Unavoidable physical conditions aside, this is true to a considerable degree. Many of the challenges inherent in the pairing of an older sugar daddy with a much younger sugar baby can be overcome simply by retaining the same spirit of adventure and love of life that you had when you were younger.
Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to like everything that your sugar baby likes, nor do you have to understand everything that goes through her mind. But having the ability to see the world through the eyes of a younger person will go a long way in helping you narrow down the age gap somewhat.
Finding the right balance
We certainly don’t mean to suggest that it is solely up to you to get to your sugar baby’s age level. It wouldn’t be fair for you to constantly strive toward a younger mindset while your sugar baby makes no effort at all to achieve common ground. Besides, constantly trying to act and think younger than your years does a disservice to you as a person, and negates everything you have learned and accomplished over the years.
Instead of beating yourself up trying to transform yourself into a millennial, you would be much better off finding a balance between being an older man and a vibrant and joyous adult for whom life is still an endless source of excitement, adventure, and new experiences.
Accepting the differences
Despite your best efforts to maintain a young and fresh mindset, there are unfortunately some obstacles that you will not be able to overcome. Depending on your age, your health and physical condition may mean that your days of hang-gliding and parasailing are long behind you. On the other hand, there are many other things you and your sugar baby can do that do not involve putting yourself at risk of harm or injury.
You may also find it nearly impossible to pick up and follow contemporary slang and internet-speak, and fail miserably if you even try. This is something that you may have to accept graciously, and it would be best to not make too much of an effort to fit in with regard to the current lingo. There are few things more comical than older gentlemen dotting their communications with “LOL”s and emoticons and the like, and you definitely don’t want to come across as trying too hard.
You’ve probably already spent considerable time and effort learning to speak and communicate like an educated person. Don’t throw it all away simply to make yourself more appealing to a younger sugar baby who may not even appreciate your effort!
Oftentimes, the age gap between a sugar daddy and a sugar baby may seem impossible to surmount. The older you are, the more difficult it will be to find common ground with your sugar baby. But keeping an open mind and keeping the spirit of curiosity and adventure alive will help you overcome many of these obstacles. Take the time to choose a sugar baby who will be appreciative and accepting of who you are as a person, and the age difference will be less of a factor in your relationship.
