EarnTheNecklace.com, a revealing and engaging web site with articles written by women who exchange their stories and confessions about being in a relationship with a much older man, is responding to a recent conventional dating survey showing that women seek an ambitious charmer, while men want a beautiful woman with a great sense of humor.
According to a recent poll that looked at the dating preferences in the modern age, seven out of 10 Americans believe that expecting a date to pay for everything isn’t acceptable, but that it’s still the man’s job to cover the costs of the first date. According to other findings, both men and women consider personality when deciding to date someone, but men are more likely to prioritize a woman’s looks and say that her sense of humor outweighs her intelligence. Women, on the other hand, are more apt to place a greater emphasis on his finances and career ambitions. (Source: “Should men always pay for dinner? The surprising contradictions of dating in the modern age,” NYDailyNews.com, May 29, 2014; www.nydailynews.com/life-style/dating-poll-money-gender-roles-reveals-contradictions-article-1.1810049.)
“While many people will look down their nose at a sugar baby/sugar daddy relationship, the fact of the matter is that most people have a very traditional way of looking at courtship and the traditional male/female gender roles,” says Bianca-Marie Coventry, EarnTheNecklace.com’s content manager. “According to this most recent poll, men want to be with someone who is attractive, whereas women are inherently drawn to a man with the financial means to provide and protect.”
Coventry explains that sugar daddy dating certainly has its perks, but it goes beyond disposable income. While the definition of the sugar daddy/sugar baby relationship is pretty straightforward, conventional dating is riddled with blurred lines and contradictions, especially when it comes to money.
The poll also found that the majority of respondents think it’s OK to pursue someone because they come across as being successful; at the same time, they feel that it is unacceptable to reject someone just because they haven’t been very successful.
“If you remove the age gap perspective from the sugar daddy/sugar baby relationship, you’re left with the dating preferences and attributes most people believe strongly in,” Coventry observes. “Women are more likely to place greater emphasis on finances; two-thirds of women would prefer to date someone who makes more money than them, which is essentially what sugar daddy dating is about.”
“Sugar daddy dating is the best of both worlds, and it’s the type of arrangement that people clearly desire, often without even realizing it,” Coventry concludes. “That stereotypical image of the rich old man and the 20-something gold digger who’s sleeping with him just for his money really isn’t an accurate depiction of sugar daddy dating.”
