Sugar Dating 101

But, it can be an enriching and satisfying experience for both partners!

If you haven’t heard of sugar daddy mentoring, you just might find that it’s the ideal arrangement for you!

What is mentorship in sugar dating?


Sugar arrangements with a mentorship element mean that the sugar daddy is willing to help boost the career or personal growth of their sugar baby. This can come in a variety of forms that we’ll discuss more in detail. But, the most important thing is that the sugar relationship allows the sugar daddy to use their power, influence, and experience to teach and guide their sugar baby towards personal success.

Are mentor-based arrangements always platonic?

Most of the mentorships that take place outside of the world of sugaring are platonic, so you might be wondering if the same goes here. Well, just like in all forms of sugar relationships, it depends on the people involved! If one person would rather keep the mentorship platonic, then that’s certainly an option. But, it’s not a rule.

In fact, any style of sugar dating can have a mentorship element.

What benefits do sugar babies get from mentorships?


The main benefit that a sugar baby receives from mentorship is the chance to learn from someone successful and generous with their influence. A sugar baby who is looking to advance their career can benefit from dating a sugar daddy who has been working in their field for a number of years. Not only can their sugar daddy tell them their tips for success, but they can also invite them to social gatherings with people in their line of work.

That said, these arrangements aren’t only defined by the mentorship part. Sugar daddy mentors might also offer:

  • Travel opportunities
  • Fine dining experiences
  • Spa treatments
  • Luxurious gifts
  • Anything else that a sugar baby thinks to ask for

What benefits do sugar daddies get from mentorships?

Okay, so it’s pretty clear that a sugar baby has a lot to gain from a mentorship in sugar dating. But what about the mentors?

Well, for one thing, many people enjoy the process of helping the next generation of young people. Maybe they had someone influential in their life who helped them get to where they are now. And they want to return the favor. Spending time with up-and-comers in their career field can also bring back fond memories and make them feel young again.

There are, of course, many other reasons why someone would seek out a sugar baby in general. Companionship, a listening ear, and someone to enjoy the finer things in life at their side are all benefits of sugar dating. The satisfaction of mentorship is just one more appealing feature of sugar dating overall.

How can you find a mentor sugar daddy?

If you’re a sugar baby looking for a mentor, the good news is, you’re much more likely to find one in this community than in traditional dating circles. Sugaring, by nature, attracts powerful, generous people who are more open to mentoring you than someone you meet on a dating app. Here’s how you can get started:

  • Make an online profile. By far, the fastest way to find a sugar daddy is on a dedicated sugaring platform.
  • Make your intentions clear. Your online bio is the perfect place to start planting the seed for a mentor relationship. Say that you’re looking for someone who can help guide you on your career path and connect you with people in your field.
  • Use keywords. Phrases like “mentorship,” “career advice,” “financial growth,” and “financial advice,” are all examples of keywords that will stand out when your ideal partner is browsing through profiles.
  • Talk about your career goals during your meet & greet. The meet & greet is a time to start building rapport between you and a potential sugar daddy. And it’s also when you want to start the conversation about benefits. Don’t be shy about stating that you’re looking for someone who can help advance your career or personal goals. And be ready to talk about your specific desires for your future self. If your POT is the right person to help you, you’ll know right away. If not, you won’t waste more time with someone who isn’t your ideal mentor.

How can you be a good sugar daddy mentor?

As a sugar daddy, how can you use your generosity to build your ideal mentor arrangement? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Look for sugar babies who are in search of a mentor. You have so much wisdom and advice to share, but you don’t want it to be lost on someone who isn’t looking for mentorship. So, when you are browsing through online profiles, take note of the people who mention their career goals or desires for personal improvement. These are the sugar babies who will be most open to a mentor arrangement.
  • Ask the right questions. Get to know what your sugar baby’s unique goals are for the future. This will help you tailor your advice and guidance to what they need.
  • Be patient and encouraging. Remember that everyone has to start somewhere, and you may be meeting your sugar baby at the very beginning of their journey. So, stay patient and curious. And try not to be offended if your advice isn’t always followed to the T. Sometimes being a mentor means watching your sugar baby make and learn from mistakes. Your task will be to encourage them to keep trying.

What are the keys to success for mentorship in sugar dating?

In many ways, the key to success in mentor arrangements is the same as any other kind of sugar relationship. Honesty, generosity, curiosity, and empathy are the cornerstones of a successful arrangement. And here’s an example of how they play out in a thriving mentorship:

Carey is a 24-year-old hair stylist working in Queens. Her lifelong goal has been to break into the entertainment industry, but she hasn’t been able to move past a few styling jobs in the indie film scene. Her sugar daddy made his fortune in real estate and has properties both in NYC and Southern California. Although he doesn’t have direct connections in Hollywood, he makes sure to bring Carey along on his frequent trips to LA. Not only does this provide him with a fun travel partner, but she’s been able to use these trips to break into the hair styling community in LA. She’s even made friends with a few reality show stars who she’s been able to host at her sugar daddy’s house. She and her sugar daddy have made such a good impression on the stars that they’ve offered to pass her resume along to their styling team. Carey’s sugar daddy has been prepping her for her upcoming job interview and has offered to let her live in one of his LA properties if she gets the job.

As you can see, mentorship in sugar dating can be a boon for both partners. As long as each person can be supportive, caring, and generous, everyone can benefit from this kind of arrangement!
