Creative dating arrangement
Now, thanks to online dating, so-called ‘mutually beneficial’ relationships have never been easier to come by.
I love the idea of Richard Gere bankrolling my shopping trips to Selfridges every weekend, and I can’t see much wrong with two consenting adults agreeing to a relationship that suits them both.
‘The people on them are all there for the same thing as opposed to dating sites where you don’t know what people’s intentions are.
‘Each relationship is different but I’m very upfront about the money – the girls are there for financial help and the guys because they want someone young and hot – it’s an open arrangement.’ The downside?
‘Since then I’ve had a number of relationships with girls I have met online and, until I want something more serious, it suites my lifestyle and I have met some great people.’ So, while not being the most conventional form of dating it could be arguably one of the most honest.
Sugar daddy dating is an arrangement between consenting adults – and a way for people who prefer to avoid the formalities of traditional dating and cut straight to the chase, to meet.

‘I am sociable, well-educated and enjoy a rich and varied social life, but would like to meet someone special who I have a connection with to share intimate moments and memorable times.
