Female friend willing give try dating

Once I’d convinced myself of the moral justification – I know many will disagree with me – I started to entertain some of the propositions that landed in my inbox.

The thrill of a date with an older, wiser, higher-flying executive had faded.The allowances and gifts, which were once a happy bonus of my adventures, had become my main motivation.His financial investment assuages his guilt that he can’t emotionally invest.Given that I didn’t want a committed relationship, it made sense to me.It has just launched in the UK, where it is already boasting 80,000 members.

In return for a no-strings but mutually beneficial relationship, the women who sign up can get to be treated like a lady, showered with gifts, taken on all-you-can-buy shopping sprees, and enjoy meals at the best tables in town.But after three years on these dating sites, I stopped.I realised that my motivations had slowly shifted to monetary gain.Until this week, “modern” sugar daddy dating was barely known in Britain.But websites that promise to match older wealthy men with young attractive women have been thriving in America for years; one of the most popular – Seeking Arrangement.com, which bills itself as a place “where the attractive meet the affluent” – claims to have a million subscribers, with 10 women for every man.It was only after I spent an evening comforting a friend who had been dumped by a casual boyfriend (he had strung her along pretending he wanted more commitment than he really intended) that it dawned on me that paying to go on a date was a more honest way to conduct a non‑committal relationship.
