The definition of a Sugar Daddy can sometimes be loose. A Sugar Daddy is a man, usually of considerable wealth and means. Most people assume the Sugar Daddy is an older man, and more often than not he is, but it could very well be a younger man as well. They are labeled as Sugar Daddies due to the relationships they maintain. They tend to have a relationship with a (usually) younger person based on mutual needs. The Sugar Daddy is in search of companionship. In return they offer their considerable wealth. What this means is that they often lavish their partner with fancy clothing, jewelry, gifts, and other expensive items. They often go so far as to help pay for rent, pay different bills, and even provide an allowance. The Sugar Daddy often does this because it is easier than finding a partner by dating. Perhaps they are even too busy to join the dating world. And by entering into a Sugar Daddy relationship they have a little bit more control and flexibility over the relationship than normal. The younger person in question provides the Sugar Daddy with companionship in return for these monetary favors. This is not to be confused with the relationship a man has with an escort. The person involved with a Sugar Daddy does not actively seek other men for money. Although based in a material and monetary understanding, the Sugar Daddy relationship is a real one. Often times they even develop mutual feelings for one another, even if it is just a friendship. There are no real rules or regulations when it comes to the relationship between a Sugar Daddy and the young person. Whatever understanding about the relationship that comes to be is agreed upon by the Sugar Daddy and the young person.
