Past a certain age, anyone who is thinking of becoming a sugar daddy will likely question the feasibility of their decision. As much as we would all like to think that we can do anything we want regardless of our age, the reality is that some decisions will require more thought and consideration the older you are.
This is often the case with sugar dating where age is a very real factor that will have to be considered from all angles. Sugar dating of course typically involves an older man pairing up with a younger woman, but the challenges inherent in such a relationship become even more pronounced the older you are when you decide to become a sugar daddy.
How old is too old?
The burning question that you may now find yourself asking is: “How old is too old?” There really is no definitive answer to that question, as circumstances tend to vary by a wide margin from person to person. A particularly healthy and active person in his 80s may be able to enjoy a fulfilling sugar dating experience for a number of years yet, while someone twenty years younger may not be able to do so because of health concerns.
Some men also retain a spirit of youthfulness and vibrancy well into their senior years, which are essential for getting the most out of a sugar dating relationship. In contrast, someone of the relatively young age of under-60 may be so set in his ways that a sugar dating relationship would not only be unfeasible, but an all-around bad idea as well.
“You are only as old as you think”, as the saying goes, and this is especially appropriate in the sugar dating world. Barring any health concerns and mobility issues, if you feel as if you are too old to be a sugar daddy, chance are that you are correct in your assessment.
What being a sugar daddy is like for an older man
If you have never had the chance to be a sugar daddy before, prepare yourself for many significant changes in your life. This is an entirely new playing field, and it could be radically different from the standard dating scene in which you may have been accustomed.
For one thing, you will have to accept the reality that your sugar baby is likely only after your money. The very nature of a sugar dating relationship places you in the role of financial provider. For many sugar babies, this could be where your relationship begins and ends. Anything that you get in return–whether affection, companionship, or sex–will be almost entirely dependent on your ability and willingness to pay the price.
This is not to say that all sugar dating relationships are strictly business, or that they will remain that way forever. A surprising number of sugar dating arrangements develop into something more closely resembling a “traditional”, romance-based relationship. If you are lucky, you could very well end up with a sugar baby who you can reasonably expect to be able to share the rest of your life with.
That being said, such scenarios are unfortunately more of the exception rather than the rule. For every sugar dating relationship that ends in wedding bells, there are dozens more that remain based on practicality and mutual need rather than on love and affection. Keeping this reality in mind will enable you to keep your expectations in check, and possibly prevent you from being hurt and disappointed if or when the relationship comes to an end.
One thing that you will have to take stock of is your health as it pertains to carrying on a sugar dating relationship. No matter how young and active you are–or you think you are–your body might have thoughts of its own on the subject. Some physical conditions and health issues may get in the way of you being able to enjoy certain activities, regardless of your willingness and desire to engage in them.
We’re not even taking about bungee jumping or off-road racing here. Even an active nightlife, late hours, and the heightened emotions that come as part of a sugar dating relationship can be detrimental to an older man with health issues. Trying to keep up with a more sexually active partner could also put you at risk, especially if you have to use performance-enhancing products such as Viagra or Cialis.
That being said, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to enjoy a healthy and rewarding sugar dating relationship if you have no pressing health issues. It is advisable to consult with your doctor with regard to the feasibility of certain activities and medications. If your doctor gives you the green light, feel free to enjoy your life as a sugar daddy as you see fit.
Accepting the facts
Unfortunately for some people, the days of sugar dating may be past. Reduced mobility and health issues may make it risky and even impossible to play the role of sugar daddy, even in its most basic definition.
But all hope isn’t lost. You may still be able to carry on a rewarding relationship with an understanding and caring sugar baby who is sympathetic to your concerns. You may also be able to cultivate a close relationship with a woman closer to your age, who will be more likely to understand your situation. True, the days of fast living, fast loving, and young and loose women may be over for you. But that doesn’t mean that shouldn’t be able to enjoy a relationship that is every bit as satisfying and rewarding.
Whether or not you are too old to be a sugar daddy is something that you will have to determine for yourself. Be honest in your assessment and err on the side of caution, especially if you are at risk for certain health issues. Talk to your doctor and follow his advice, and try to get as much as you can out of life without putting your health at risk.
