Summer (i.e. travel) season is upon us so I wanted to put down some ideas about sugar daddy /sugar baby travels

This, of course, assumes that the sugar daddy is single or he is able to make some type of excuse with his family and travel with his younger girlfriend.

In my opinion, this travel can be fun but at the same time, it can lead to trouble especially if it’s the first time traveling. You learn a lot about someone while traveling. Travel with a significant other can also lead to greater sexually satisfying relationships, according to some studies. It can lead to a lot of closeness and intimacy, especially if you two are sharing the same room. Some people are not ready for this type of intimacy so the outcome of this first trip could be interesting. My first such trip led to a breakup, as I was clearly not ready to be in such close proximity with anyone for nearly 24×7. I became cranky,as I am a person that needs his space every so often. So that experience taught me a few lessons that can be summarized as follows:

Choose a place you are both interested in

I would recommend that the sugar daddy accommodates his sugar baby as much as possible here. Let’s keep her happy, guys.

If she likes diving/water sports and you don’t, perhaps you can use this opportunity to extend your comfort zone a bit. A few good laughs and interesting experiences may ensue. Or you could find a location that offers both divings as well as ancient monuments or other “together” activities for added variety. Discuss your activities in advance to avoid misunderstandings.

Set a budget ahead of time

For example, will you go on any guided tours or will you rent a car and do a self-guided tour? Will every night be a 4 star dining out type of experience or are there other options?

Thinking about this ahead of time is important, this way you can avoid awkward money discussions from ruining your vacation

What type of hotel (5 stars or more low key bed & breakfast) will you be staying at? Will you be in the same room or separate rooms? This could get interesting, make sure you are comfortable being in the same bed all night over several days. I found out that I couldn’t

Set your schedule in advance

Will you be spending the entire vacation together or will you set aside a few hours in the afternoon just for “alone” time before going out for dinner? Based on my own painful experiences I would highly recommend having this discussion ahead of time

Now for some destinations that come to mind, this shortlist is only based on my own experience. My preference is to go to quieter low key places, this way I can experience the sugar baby even more.

Santorini

One of the most popular Greek islands although now it’s getting swamped by selfie-taking tourist groups. I do like the native wine they make and riding those cute little donkeys they have. But try Naxos island for a slightly more quiet experience.

Cancun

What I like here is the combination of Mayan antiquities, which I loved, and the beach and scuba diving. It’s right on the equator and I got burned like a lobster. Be careful. What I didn’t like was the loud tourist groups though. Maybe offseason would have been a bit better?

Belize

Paradise, more original than the manufactured experience you will get in Cancun. A lot of reefs and underwater features and lagoons to visit. I liked the village of San Ignacio with its Mayan ruins and nearby rainforests and caves. Out of my entire list, this is my favorite destination.

Kenya safari

It was a long flight getting there but I really liked that country. I took a great picture of a giraffe with the high rise building of Nairobi in the background, just to give you an idea of the contrasts you will see. Just be careful of aggressive pickpocketing and leave your jewelry at home

When you travel with your sugar daddy/sugar baby, make sure you come back and let us know how it all went. We love to gossip!

SeekingArrangement Blog by David Montrose - 2M ago

There have been many blogs that deal with allowances, how much to ask for, and how often. I won’t talk about that today. I would rather deal with the topic of what to do with this allowance once you have it in your hands already. It is a popular stereotype that young people can’t hold on to their money. I don’t believe that for a minute, I just think that in our country we don’t give financial education much attention and instead we let people figure it out on their own. When was the last time you saw a class in high school or college on money, debt, saving and investing? I think a class on this topic should be mandatory (a pet peeve of mine).

Let’s say your SD gives you $2k in cash each month and that your relationship lasts one year. That is $24k in cash. Not a small amount. Your next steps will depend on your individual circumstances. But here are the main things you can do with this money, provided that you have already taken care of your basic housing and food bills:

  • Pay down debt
  • Save for a rainy day
  • Live, within reason
  • No one-time gifts, pay yourself first and invest, invest, invest for the long term

First, let’s talk about paying down debt and we can discuss investing in future blogs.
If you have a credit card that charges the typical 20% annual interest, you NEED to pay that debt down, and you need to pay more than just the $25 minimum each month, otherwise high interest on the remaining balance on your debt will compound and accumulate. If you keep charging on this card and only paying the small minimum monthly required amount, this means that your debt will never be paid off.  Ever…

I think the best strategy is to divide your debt into smaller amounts. Instead of looking at a large $10,000 balance (which could be pretty daunting) it is easier to divide it up mentally in smaller and more manageable amounts. Say for example you just added $400 to your existing credit card balance because you bought college textbooks. I would recommend the next time you get your allowance pay down that full $400 balance before you do anything else. If you can’t pay it in full the next month, at least set the mental goal to pay it down as soon as you can. This way, no interest or very little interest will accumulate on that specific balance. As well, you will now feel more confident and relieved that you able to start dealing with the debt monster, and this will make you more confident to start paying down even more debt in the future.

Pay down the debt on the card with the highest interest rate first: This one is pretty obvious since you will want to get rid of as much extra interest payments as possible

Transfer your high-interest balance to a lower interest rate credit card. If your balances are large enough perhaps you can transfer that to a card with a 0% promotional interest: Some credit card companies offer these promotions at times, so be on the lookout for special offers like that. You might be able to save some money this way.

If you have several credit cards, consider paying off the one with the smallest balance first. This way you can claim a small victory against debt, and then proceed with slaying the larger balances.

So, if you follow the simple steps above, paying down debt becomes a virtuous cycle that will make you breathe easier. Bear in mind you may need to sacrifice a bit: Cut some dining and entertainment expenses in order to budget more for debt repayment. The main point is to give each dollar you earn (work or sugar allowance) a purpose. You will find out that when you get organized about that dollar, you have less time for impulsive spending. And impulsive, disorganized spending leads to debt as night follows day.

You may have noticed that some of the pointers I have offered are actually mental tricks to get you to focus on small steps, small victories and conditioning yourself to live within your means and making every dollar count with a purpose to make you more independent

The benefits of being disciplined and debt free is worth it, your future self will thank you!

We are all souls searching. Searching for something. What is that something?

After finishing my Freshman year at MIT in 1990, I flew back to Singapore for the summer.  One of my best friends insisted I go with him to see a Buddhist fortune reader. His Buddhist teacher had highly recommended her, because she foretold his entire future which unfolded over the years with unbelievable accuracy. Like most, I care about my future immensely, but I also believe the future is yet to be written and the outcomes lie solely in one’s own hands, albeit with a sprinkle of luck and circumstances every now and then.  

That visit changed my life in unimaginable ways.

The Buddhist Fortune Reader

Unlike most fortune tellers who read palms or tarot cards, this Buddhist nun asked me for my birthdate and the exact time I was born.  Then, referring to a thick Buddhist book, she flipped to the exact page that corresponds to the moment, in space and time, when I was born.  As though it was science, she started telling stories about my past life, about what I did right and what I did wrong. My karma, a tally of all the good and evil across all my past lives, has led me to this moment of birth, to the family I was born into, and into the tendencies I have in this life.  She told me I will become a successful businessman, that I will travel far and often, but she also told me that for some mistakes made in my past life, I would be disadvantaged when it comes to finding love.

True to her predictions, or perhaps it was self fulfilling prophecy, I am here today, three times divorced but a whole lot happier.  

When I met my first wife, I was in my mid-twenties. Even though I didn’t feel she was “the one”, I married her in part because after a year of dating, most people in traditional relationships always end up asking the question “when will you propose.”  Feeling pressured by her, and also by the predictions of the Buddhist nun, I proposed and married her soon after. I thought if I married someone who loved me more than I loved her, I could break that loveless spell.

Boy was I wrong.  A few years into the marriage, I was cheating, and my unhappiness led to divorce.

My second and third marriage didn’t fare well either.  

While trying to save my third marriage, I had a breakthrough.  This time it was an energy healer and tarot card reader who told me she sensed genuine love between me and Tanya, and recommended we pay a visit to a therapist she knew well.   

The Therapist

On my first visit to the therapist, I asked a simple question: “What is wrong with me?”  

I told her that a year or two into any romantic relationship, I would always end up cheating.  I wanted to know if there is a reason I was incapable of monogamy, and I wanted a fix for it.

She listened patiently, and when I was done, she said, “Nothing is wrong with you.”

She went on to explain that my symptoms point to the fact that I am “non-monogamous.”  Interestingly enough, most men and some women are non-monogamous by nature, even if they have never thought of classifying themselves as such.  She told me that much like a gay person or a transsexual was born that way, I was born a “non-monogamous.”

A “non-monogamous” person would naturally find it harder to be monogamous.  For those reasons, she said I needed to find people who will accept and love me for who I am.  She also told me to read up on what it means to be “non-monogamous”, and to explore different forms of open relationships and polyamory, to see what works for me.

With this new perspective and with my third divorced finalized, I jumped back into the dating pool and back on Seeking.com and WhatsYourPrice.com a few years ago as a “poly” armed with a new approach.

I now believed that if one can be completely honest with who they are and what they seek, they will then be able to find those who can truly love them.  Now in my late forties, I am set in my ways. I am not going to drastically change, and for that I need to be with those who can love me for me.

True Happiness:  The Ayahuasca Ceremony

Last year, in my quest to find happiness, an ex-girlfriend of mine convinced me to join her at an Ayahuasca ceremony. For those of you who do not know what Ayahuasca is, it is a plant-based drug used by Shamans, i.e., religious healers, in Peru. The drug has an interesting ability to help one drill deep into their subconscious mind to explore one’s pain, sadness, insecurities and emotional issues.

I had one question for Mother Ayahuasca that day.  I wanted to know why I have not felt truly happy. If Buddhism has taught me one thing, it is that desires and attachments are causes of suffering, and unless one can be content, they can never be happy.  I felt as though I was always chasing after the next thing, be it the next business idea or the next romantic relationship. Why was I so dissatisfied with my status quo, even when I have achieved so much success and am in love with a wonderful woman?

The next morning, at the sharing circle, each person took turns to speak of their new found realizations from the night before.  One man was dealing with the emotional issues he faced with his daughter’s upcoming wedding, lamenting on how he was depressed over losing her, and how Ayahuasca led him to appreciate that he wasn’t losing his daughter to another man, but rather welcoming another man into his expanding family.  Another woman spoke of how she was dealing with her depression and insecurities, and how Ayahuasca made her realize she needed to focus on the now and to take life one day at a time.

When it came to my turn, I told the sharing circle, that my question going into the night was why I wasn’t happy, and what I needed to do to be truly happy.  Then, I described the visions I had. Of me surfing, and chasing one wave after another. Smiling the entire time, while being truly happy and present in the moment, and appreciating my life and the freedom I felt when in the water and on that surfboard.

My realization that evening was another life changing event for me.  Ayahuasca made me realize I was already truly happy; because I have a supportive family who is there for me at my lowest moments; I have genuine friends; I was lucky to have built a successful business with my family; I have good employees and business partners; and I am dating an amazing woman who loves me.  I realize that I am happy because I appreciate what I have, and that I want to achieve more success, acquire more wealth or find more girlfriends, not because I had an insatiable desire, but rather, I do it because I love the chase.

Lessons Learned

Seeking.com is an interesting place to date.  My experience on the website I created 13 years ago to solve my dating problems have been incredible.  My journey and the people who have come into and out of my life in those years have been joyful, sprinkled with moments of disappointments, but always lessons learned.

For those of you who are searching for genuine relationships or soulmates, like I am, here are some advice:

1. Are they kind souls?

One thing I learned about the SA community is that most of us here who are genuinely looking to date, whether it be short or long term, are open minded and kind.  I can’t say the same of the bots, scammers, or those who are here for non-dating intent.

Having encountered many souls over the years, I have come to realize that most are kind, even though they may not have been looking for the same thing.  Some are looking for short term flings, some to cure boredom, some for emotional support, some for love and marriage, and others for a helping hand.

But no matter what we seek, it is important to avoid those who will lie or manipulate to get what they want without remorse.  When you meet someone new, ask questions, listen, and observe their actions over time.

Ask yourself. Is he or she a kind soul?

2. How much baggage you will carry?

A few years ago, I was dating a girl whose baggage was her insecurity and constant anxiety. Many months into the relationship, I discovered she was addicted to opiates.  After fighting for her well being, which included interventions and sending her to rehab multiple times, I finally realize nothing I do can fix her. Her baggage was dragging me into the abyss until I decided I had to let go.

Each of us come with our own set of baggage, whether it is an overbearing personality, depression, trauma, or sexual dysfunction.  Yet, it is important for us to find out what baggage someone comes with, because we will end up having to carry that baggage when we are in a relationship with them.

Know what you are getting yourself into.

3. Who to let in the door?

My inner circle, comprising of my family, soulmates, and closest friends, mean the world to me.  Knowing who to let into your lives matter, because when you let the wrong people through, hurt and pain almost always follow.

I have been in too many situations where I am attracted to someone, but ignored signs that they may have been with me for the wrong reasons.  The person who is genuinely attracted to you, likes you, and wants to be with you will naturally show in how they behave around you, their body language, and how they interact with you.  That is what we call “chemistry”.

Even when there is chemistry, does the person have your best interest at heart.  We live in a world full of self-centered and ego-centric personalities. Yet, when it comes time to choose our business partners, or soulmates, it is important to find those who not only care about their self interests, but also yours.

SA was built based on the notion of forming mutually beneficial relationships.  Let us not forget that everyone in our inner circle ought to add to the relationship, not just take from it.  It is easy to find friends when you are beautiful, successful and wealthy, but true friends are those who stick with you through thick and thin.

Conclusion

The past year has been bright for me.  Through Seeking, I met my girlfriend, Zoe, who is honestly one of the kindest souls I have ever known.  For a guy who once said, “Love is a concept invented by poor people”, it was love at first sight the moment I met her.  I have told her many times that we have known each other for millions of years, spanned across thousands and thousands of past lives.  Maybe that is how you feel when you meet someone who loves you for you, no matter what.

I am self reflective by nature, but I am by no means always right.  I hope by sharing insights I have gained from my personal journey, I am able to help each of you avoid the mistakes I have made as you search for your soulmates or your version of happiness.

Where art thou kind souls. Let us fly together. We are soulmates.

We are all souls searching. Searching for something. What is that something?

I watched the movie “Pretty Woman” back when I was a Sophomore at MIT. I had forgotten about it and its relevance to the Sugar community until this past weekend when I went to Manhattan with my girlfriend, Zoe.  As usual, every time I have a chance to be in the Big Apple, I ask Zoe which Broadway show she wants to watch. We had seen ‘Hamilton’ the last time we were in the city, so naturally we felt like seeing something a little less serious. So when Zoe suggested “Pretty Woman,” I was all game.

While the New York Times did not give “Pretty Woman, The Musical” much of a rave review, we thoroughly enjoyed the performance.  There is no doubt “Pretty Woman” dealt with a difficult and socially uncomfortable topic. Another challenge it faced was the fact that the original movie and its strong lead characters (Richard Gere and Julia Roberts) were tough acts to follow. Yet, despite everything stacked against it, the cast delivered a powerful performance that was extremely entertaining and highly relatable to all of us in the Sugar community.

Naturally, there are a number of important lessons to be learned from the show.

Lesson 1:  Be a sugar baby, not a prostitute.

Reporters often ask me the question, “What is the difference between a Sugar Baby and a prostitute?” If there is one lesson to be learned from “Pretty Woman,” it would be the answer to that question.  Vivian was a prostitute at the beginning of the movie but became a Sugar Baby by the end. It wasn’t because she had experienced the luxurious lifestyle of being the girlfriend of a billionaire that changed her.  Rather, it was his kindness and desire to form a genuine connection with her when few would. She’s initially abrasive and cynical because that’s what the world taught her. The chance encounter with Edward, his money and the luxury he was able to afford were all gateways to forming a genuine connection since she valued money greatly.  But it was the genuine connection they had that changed her. After that, she could never go back to being a prostitute. She saw life from a new perspective and had transformed herself from a simpleton into a Sugar Baby. The difference between the two couldn’t be clearer. The contrast between the two could not be more black and white.  The desire of wanting to form and keep a genuine relationship is the defining quality separating out Sugar Dating from prostitution.

Lesson 2:  It is okay to want a Fairy-tale ending.

At the end of their week together, Edward, the billionaire, made an offer to Vivian.  He offered her a new car, an apartment, and an allowance. Vivian rejected his offer to be his kept woman.  While most would jump at that opportunity, and she may have also had it been made a week ago, but she no longer wanted that.  She wanted her fairy-tale, and she taught us all that it is okay to want more. By the end of the show, she had transformed herself into the ultimate Sugar Baby, following the footsteps of many like her, such as Melania Trump, Eloise Broady, Kristy Hinze, Katsia Zingarevich or Jade Forest. Strong women who have incredibly high standards for the lifestyle they want to live, know exactly what they want and have been successful in upgrading their relationships.

So, if a reporter were to ask me again if a Sugar Baby is a kept woman, I would have to ask them to watch the ending of “Pretty Woman”.  A kept woman may certainly be a Sugar Baby, but a Sugar Baby is most certainly not always a kept woman. Some Sugar Babies are girlfriends of successful men or wives of Presidents or billionaires.  Most Sugar Babies, however, are single and looking, but they know what they want, and they have a high standard for whom they want to be in a relationship with. They aren’t afraid of seeking their fairy-tale.

Lesson 3:  It is important to have a dream.

There are many critics for those of us who live the Sugar lifestyle.  Many are usually sour because they aren’t rich enough to be Sugar Daddies, or they feel they aren’t beautiful enough to be Sugar Babies.  Yet, there is one more important lesson to take away from “Pretty Woman”. A lesson that will benefit everyone, including those naysayers.

The song, “Never Give Up On A Dream”, sang towards the end of the performance tells us of the importance of having dreams. In that scene, Vivian’s roommate who had been a prostitute for years, but was not as lucky as Vivian in love, decided it was time to pursue the dream she had when she was young.  She signed up with the police academy and started to pursue her dreams of a career in law enforcement.

Dreams lead to actions, and taking action leads to dreams coming true.  And hence the importance of never giving up on one’s dreams.

For those critics who fret because they are not rich or pretty enough, l will say that I was neither rich nor successful nor beautiful 20 years ago when I was struggling with shyness and loneliness.  Yet, my dreams eventually led me to where I am today. Confidence, success, personality and even physical beauty can all be changed and improved, if only one sets their mind to it.

Even though I found some of the casting choices to be puzzling (for example, Andy Karl, who clearly spends a lot of his time at the gym, playing the role of Edward who clearly had no time for anything else other than business and work), I highly recommend “Pretty Woman, The Musical” for those who may have the opportunity to watch it.

So next time, if you happen to be in New York and you are lonely or bored, get on SeekingArrangement. Find yourself a date and buy two tickets to the show.  At the end of the show, let’s not forget to share some sugar with those in need by donating to Broadway Cares, the charity that fights HIV/AIDS. I’m sure you won’t regret any of it.

For those of you who have questions for me, or who are interested in following me on my journey to improving my life, relationships and business, feel free to follow me or write me on one of my social channels:

Whether you’re new and getting started, looking to mix things up after a few years, or just want to change your approach, there are little things you can do to make your experience in the Sugar world that much better. We all want the Sugar rush without the crash, and today we’re going to help you get the most out of the Sugar Bowl.

Fill out your profile entirely

This may seem simple, but it’s a mistake many people make. Think about it from your perspective, would you rather message a completed profile where the person is telling you about themselves and what they’re looking for, or a barren and bland account? Take the time and fill out what will be your first impression to others.

Have pictures

We understand that some of our members prefer to be discreet, yet a profile with zero pictures is almost guaranteed to not get any messages. Along with your profile text, being able to see who the person behind the profile is has a key role in how much attention your profile will ultimately get.

Use private pictures

Speaking of those who prefer to be discreet, the use of private pictures is the best way to control your privacy online. Requesting or granting private photo access can get the conversation rolling while simultaneously seeing if you’re interested in someone and want them to message you back. By using private photos, you can also control who you want to see you and who you don’t. Please keep in mind: Your photos should not be TOO revealing, so please no full nudity! Use these photos to peak the interest of a potential Baby or Daddy.

Log in every day

Your profile will be seen more in searches if you log in every day. Not only will your profile show in the “recently active” tab on the search page, but will also be shown on the swiping page when using the app. We also feature users who use the app more frequently!

Expand your search area

More members are willing to travel to for an Arrangement than you think. So, Daddies, if you are willing to travel, or pay for travel, you will find more Babies than you could ever imagine. And for Babies looking for more Daddies, searching in different areas for users who are travel-friendly will be your best bet.

Upgrade your profile

If you would like a more detailed idea of what each membership will get you, please visit this blog. As a quick overview, premium members are featured prominently over standard members. For our Sugar Daddy members, you have the option to go above and beyond even Premium with a Diamond membership. With a Diamond membership, Daddies on average receive up to 20X more responses from Sugar Babies.

Sugar Babies definitely are not left out when it comes to membership perks! Premium membership benefits are quite significant over a standard membership. You will be able to see the differences in Sugar Daddies (premium vs. standard), so you know who can respond. You will also be featured more prominently, and you will be able to narrow down your search to find the most compatible people.

Use attract boosts in low periods

When all else fails, boost! Attract Boosts are a feature we recently implemented that can get your profile seen 80% more than if you weren’t to use boosts. You will be prominently featured in search, and users will know that you are serious about finding an Arrangement.

If you have anything else that you do to make your Sugar Bowl better, please share your comments below and get the conversation started. OR, if you’re completely new to Seeking.com, check out datingadvice.com for a full review!”

Want to see what happens when the Seeking.com squad goes to London for a coaching tour? Watch our new vlog, The Adventures of Alexis and Brook London, to find out!

Adventures of Alexis and Brook in London | Seeking Lifestyle Coaching Vlog - YouTube

Seeking Lifestyle Coaching in London

Seeking.com might be based in the states, but we’re international baby! The site is also big in places like Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. We want to get to know all our members and provide them with specific advice and tips based on their needs, desires, and locations.

London is one of our biggest cities for members, so we got on a flight and headed over to do what we do best: help people date on Seeking.com! It was a long journey from our headquarters in Las Vegas, but worth it to visit the members and learn about how the UK is different than the US for Seekers.

Keeping Up Appearances

When news got around that Alexis and myself were going to be in London, there were some stations that wanted to cover us in a news story. That’s how we get more members on the site and spread the word about what Seeking.com is all about.

We were stacked with press opportunities and appeared as guests on the UK’s national morning show, Good Morning Britain. If you want to check it out, click here! And you know we couldn’t leave without getting a fleeky photo.

Seeking Lifestyle Coaching Events

At our events, we provide advice on using Seeking.com like profile help and site hacks for more traction. Being on the site is only half of the trouble with dating, and Alexis and I love providing insight on finding the right partner. Much of our expertise is based on personal experience, so attendees always get a sneak peek into our personal love lives.

Attend an Event

Do you want to attend one of our exclusive events? Check out the Seeking Events page to see a list of current events. Most of these are waitlist only and offer free entry to attendees. Sign our waitlist with your Seeking.com email address and be sure to check your email for access to your ticket and venue info.
