Millionaire dating: is it really so different from a traditional romantic relationship? The answer is, well, yes and no. Dating someone in the top echelon of society can be tricky in ways that you wouldn’t suspect as someone who isn’t part of that world yourself. And on the other hand, there might be assumptions that you have that are entirely untrue!

If you’re getting to know a millionaire for the first time, it can be helpful to learn the etiquette of sugar dating a wealthy partner. With these tips in mind, you can build connections that will leave them wanting more!

Do: Remember, first and foremost, that your sugar daddy is a person

One of the most common reasons why sugar babies struggle to maintain relationships with millionaires is that they get starstruck. We get it! It’s easy to do. The same thing would happen if you went out on a date with your celebrity crush.

The problem is, though, that millionaires are people, looking for human connection just like the rest of us. They have their own quirks and might be shy in certain situations and enjoy a good laugh. And you can miss out on all of the things that make them unique if you’re overly focused on their income bracket.

So, remember: their lifestyle might be different from yours. But your main goal is to find the similarities that will bring you together as people.

Don’t: Undersell yourself

The other disadvantage of seeing a millionaire as a larger-than-life person is that you’re likely to undersell yourself. If you think, in other words, that you’re unworthy of enjoying the millionaire lifestyle, you might just miss out on it entirely.

So, don’t undersell yourself! Be proud of the value that you bring to a relationship. When you’re confident in yourself, it will erase the pressure that comes with a difference in income.

Do: Show up on time


As you’ve probably guessed, millionaire dating needs to take into account that millionaires are busy people. As such, it’s important to be considerate of their time.

This means showing up to all dates a few minutes early so that you can jump in right away. Or, if they’ve arranged for transportation for you, don’t make the driver (or helicopter pilot, perhaps!) wait.

Don’t: Take it personally if they reschedule

One of the realities of dating a millionaire is that their schedule isn’t always predictable. You may need to be a bit more flexible with your time than you’re used to so that scheduling conflicts don’t end your relationship.

To be sure, this can be a challenge. But, try not to take it personally. It’s not that your partner doesn’t prioritize you or want to see you. It’s simply that they may have a demanding work life that doesn’t allow them to spend as much time with you as they would like.

Do: Dress the part

Putting some thought into how you present yourself is important for any date. But it may be especially helpful when dating a millionaire. This is your chance to make a memorable first impression with elegance, style, and class. So, you might want to invest a little money in a first-date outfit.

That being said, don’t be intimidated by the prospect of having to replace your whole wardrobe on your own dime. If you hit it off with your date, you can discuss shopping trips that will ensure you always look stunning whenever you meet.

Don’t: Believe that looks alone will be enough

Dressing well on a first date is standard. But it’s not the only important way to make a lasting impression. The reality is, if you’re dating someone in a high-power position, they may want someone they can have an intellectual conversation with. Don’t worry. We’re not saying that you have to change your personality or get a master’s degree. But, it can help to keep up-to-date on some current events.

One thing you’ll want to avoid, though, is pretending that you know more than you do about a particular subject. If they want to talk about their work and you’re completely in the dark when it comes to their field, it’s okay to tell them. They may enjoy the opportunity to teach you about their work, or they may change the subject. But, at least they won’t feel that they’ve wasted their time on a one-sided conversation.

Do: Talk honestly about what you want from millionaire dating


If you were looking at millionaire dating from a traditional perspective, you probably wouldn’t want to talk about money or expectations on the first date. Instead, you would want to dissuade your partner from thinking that you’re just in it for the money.

Sugar dating, of course, is a little different. Sugar daddy relationships are founded on the idea that both parties have something to gain by spending time together. And in order for it to work, you need to talk about what that “something to gain” means for both of you. Are you interested in yacht parties and galas? Trips overseas? A personal trainer? Whatever it is that attracts you to your partner’s lifestyle, be honest about it! That way, they can pamper you in the way that you deserve.

Don’t feel shy about jumping into this conversation. In fact, millionaires tend to be attracted to this style of dating because it’s honest; they want to know exactly why their partner is interested in them.

Don’t: Be afraid to negotiate

Again, we’re going to loop back to the importance of valuing yourself in a sugar relationship with a millionaire. That’s because, sometimes what happens is that a sugar baby will feel intimidated by the negotiation process with a wealthy partner. Maybe they’re worried about upsetting their sugar daddy and losing the opportunity. Or, maybe they feel that they don’t have enough to offer to match what they’re looking to gain.

The first thing to remember is that your partner expects this part of the process! Especially if they’ve had a sugar baby in the past, they won’t be surprised or upset by your initiative. It might even make you a more attractive partner when you show your independence and drive.

The second thing to remember is that not every sugar daddy is going to be right for you whether you are looking for a casual arrangement or a long-term relationship. If you do find a millionaire who can’t handle negotiations, the reality is they’re not ready for the world of sugaring. Consider it an opportunity to free up your time to find the right sugar daddy who will actually meet your needs. After all, a millionaire sugar partner who isn’t willing to share the wealth really isn’t a sugar partner at all!

Do: Show gratitude

You might be tempted to play it cool or pretend like you’re not phased when a millionaire introduces you to their impressive lifestyle. But we would actually recommend against this!

True, you don’t want to spend the entire date gushing over every little thing. Doing so would be potentially annoying, while reminding your partner that you’re new to this level of luxury.

But, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t show some appreciation. After all, it’s a wonderful thing when you find a wealthy partner who is willing to treat you to the finer things in life. So, don’t be afraid to say thanks!

Don’t: Overthink it. You can have fun!

If there’s one theme that you might have taken from this list of do’s and don’ts, it’s that millionaire dating shouldn’t intimidate you. At the end of the day, the person sitting across the table is just that: a person. So, don’t spend the whole date wondering whether you’re impressing them or entertaining them. Instead, allow yourself to have a good time.

When you get out of your own head and let go of your assumptions, that’s when the real fun begins!

Do: Be your authentic self

There’s one final truth that we’ll leave you with that might be kind of hard to hear: a millionaire can date pretty much whoever they want. But, don’t take that as a bad thing. What that means is that they’re looking for someone unique who stands out from the crowd. And, you, with all your accomplishments and eccentricities, might just be that person! But, they’re not going to know if you’re pretending to be someone else.

So, let what makes you special shine. It’s going to make you memorable.

You’re ready to have your first millionaire date

We hope that this list of do’s and don'ts for millionaire dating has filled you with the confidence you need to have an unforgettable first date. Whether you find your ideal sugar partner right away or decide to spend some more time searching for your perfect millionaire sugar daddy, you’re certainly in for some interesting and fun experiences!
