Formulating a plan might seem like a strange and unnecessary thing to do when looking for a sugar baby. After all, how much more complicated does sugar dating have to be than signing up at a dating site, putting up a profile, and waiting for all the responses to come in?
The truth of the matter is that sugar dating can be as simple–or as complicated–as you want it to be. Many people have managed to find their perfect match simply by following the process outlined above.
That being said, you can increase your chances of having a fruitful and rewarding experience by putting together an efficient plan. And a big part of formulating such a plan is getting organized.
Just how do you get organized when looking for a sugar baby? And how much organization is necessary? Again, this all boils down to personal commitment, and how much time and effort you are willing to commit to finding the perfect match.
At its most basic, organization could be as simple as putting together a list of likely candidates from a bigger pool of potential prospects. On the other end of the scale, you could organize everything from vetting sugar dating sites to putting your profile together, to arranging prospects in a spreadsheet and tailoring your approach to specific candidates, and so on.
Breaking down the tasks
A good way to go about it is to divide the process into specific and more manageable tasks. For purposes of illustration, an outline of tasks could look something like this:
- Researching sugar dating websites
- Putting together a personal profile
- Choosing potential matches
- Vetting likely candidates
- Planning your initial meeting
Researching sugar dating websites
You will want a good selection of sugar dating sites to choose from, so your first step should be to look into as many different sites as possible. What you are looking for are sites that have a good reputation for trustworthiness and reliability, which often translates into a high ratio of actual human members versus bots and fictitious accounts.
You can generally expect paid sites to have a much higher quality of clientele and better customer service overall. But don’t neglect to look into free sites as well. Some of those that have been around for a while have a well-established user base. Subsequently, they provide a pretty deep pool of prospects to choose from.
Putting together a personal profile
Your personal profile serves as your introduction into the world of sugar dating, so you should definitely put a bit of thought into it. Think about what you are trying to accomplish and what type of sugar baby you are looking for, and assemble your profile accordingly. Generally speaking, you will want to play up your strengths while downplaying–or even opting not to mention–your weaknesses.
It pays to keep your user profile concise, including only the most important and interesting details about yourself. Most sugar babies looking for a match simply won’t have the time or inclination to check out a lengthy profile, so you should try to make a good impression right off the bat. Remember, you are selling yourself here, so grabbing their attention quickly with compelling details about yourself increases your chances of making a ‘sale’.
Choosing potential matches
Depending on how well you have put your profile together, you may soon find yourself with a handful of messages from prospective sugar babies in your inbox. This is when much of the organizational work takes place. Arranging all the contacts in spreadsheet could actually be helpful at this point, as it will help you streamline the reply and follow up process, as well as organize each candidate according to feasibility.
A good way to go about it is to set up columns with each candidate’s name, age, location, important personal information, and so on. You don’t have to get too detailed in the personal information column as the details will be in candidate’s site profile anyway. Instead, you could simply type in a few descriptive keywords that make sense to you, for example: “smoker”, “outdoor type”, “yoga enthusiast”, and so on.
Vetting likely candidates
When working with a list of potential sugar babies, a star ranking system would come in handy, as would a column for “status”. This would indicate whether or not the sugar baby in question is still worth pursuing or if you have taken her out of the running entirely. It might even be helpful to have entirely different spreadsheets for “hot” prospects–that is, this you intend to pursue more thoroughly–and “cold” prospects, or those that you have already rejected.
If you need to know more about each potential candidate, now would be a good time to ask. Don’t hesitate to ask for more details or clarifications if necessary. Remember, you are the one looking for a sugar baby to support, so it falls upon them to convince you that they are worth pursuing. Anyone gets touchy about providing information or who seems evasive or uncommunicative in any way should therefore be discarded as early on as possible.
Planning your initial meeting
Your first meeting is when everything comes together and you will be able to get a clearer picture of whether or not you and your potential sugar baby have the makings of a future together. Much of the organizational work should have already been done at this point, so there is little more for you to do other than to plan your grooming and wardrobe and decide on where to go and what to do.
It would probably be best to keep things light and non-committal for the first meeting, so fancy candlelit dinners or sunset cruises around the bay are out. Instead, you could meet at a quiet coffee shop or bar where you can converse in relative quiet and privacy.
Organizing your approach to sugar dating may seem like a pointless and unnecessary chore, but it can save you a lot of time and bother in the long run, especially if you have plenty of prospects to choose from. Hopefully, doing so will make it easier for you to find the perfect match.
