Julia, a 23-year-old student, is living a luxurious lifestyle. In her glamorous world, everything revolves around expensive designer clothing and regular vacations. But how does she finance this lifestyle at such a young age, alongside her studies learning to become a teacher?
When you see her today, it’s hard to believe, but Julia comes from the countryside. She grew up in a small village in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. After completing her high school education, Julia embarked on a year abroad, generously supported financially by her parents. Upon returning home, the native of Monreal decided to pursue her studies and move to Hamburg. ‘Finally, living in a big city, and one of the most beautiful in Germany,’ she thought.
For the first time, she had to cover her own expenses and quickly noticed the huge difference in prices between the city and the countryside. Julia urgently needed a job, but at that time, finding a suitable one was challenging. The ongoing pandemic eliminated many jobs in the hospitality and sales sectors, and she lacked any relevant work experience.
During this period, Julia also struggled to find affordable housing near her university. When her studies began, she temporarily moved in with an acquaintance in Hamburg. However, she soon realized that this situation was not sustainable. She turned to the internet to find quick and easy ways to earn money.
After some research, Julia came across the concept of “Sugar Dating” on a forum. Alina, also a student, shared her positive experiences with a Sugar Daddy.
Intrigued, Julia contacted Alina through the portal, and Alina even recommended a specific app. Excited by the prospect, Julia registered on the MySugardaddy platform.
Knowing that authenticity was key, she carefully selected images that reflected her lifestyle and interests – photos from her recent travels, hiking in the mountains, cooking with friends, and swimming in turquoise seas.
Following Alina’s advice, Julia avoided explicit photos, understanding that they wouldn’t necessarily attract the right kind of men or guarantee more success. She also learned that Sugar Daddy’s sought young, lively, and attractive women to enrich their lives. In her profile description, she crafted an engaging text reflecting her interests, personality, desires, and goals.
A Carefree Life
Within a few days, Julia received several date requests. She is certain that ‘without Alina’s tips and experience, it wouldn’t have happened so quickly.’ Usually, older men between 30 and 50 years old contacted her, offering for her ‘unbelievable opportunities’ – from large sums of money to luxury items and travel. Initially unimaginable for Julia, discussions also revolved around expectations and desires in the relationship.
Initially unsure, she formed a strong connection with one man over time. ‘He was 44 years old, and we started talking every day. Our personalities matched well, and our conversations were very interesting. He had seen a lot of the world,’ recounts Julia. However, after about 5 months, it became apparent that this relationship was working for either party. Julia hadn’t been honest about her financial desires from the beginning, leading to repeated misunderstandings.
After her initial experience, she had two other Sugar Daddys and had been seeing Thomas for over a year. Thomas, a 52-year-old successful entrepreneur, pays for Julia’s apartment and her studies. She met him on MySugardaddy, and their first meeting in an extravagant restaurant confirmed that they had found what they were looking for.
The topic of intimacy also plays a major role in such a relationship and ‘should be discussed right at the beginning’. At first Julia was unsure about sexual contact with her sugar daddies. However, physical closeness was important to her, and she felt particularly connected and safe with Thomas. Julia accompanies Thomas on business trips whenever she can. He appreciates her attention, and Julia knows he enjoys being seen with a young woman in public or among his acquaintances. ‘I think our conversations and shared activities are also important to him. He wants to stay young and fresh in the mind. I appreciate this attitude a lot.
And What Do Julia’s Parents Think of Her Sugar Daddy Lifestyle?
‘Initially, these relationships faced resistance within my family. There was no support,’ admits Julia. However, opinions seem to have changed, especially since Julia met Thomas. Now, they are reportedly glad that Julia has met such a generous man and can lead an above-average life. Julia has also remained down-to-earth and knows where she comes from. ‘I still have frequent contact with many of my friends from school. No matter how much my life has changed through my relationships, I always enjoy coming back home. My roots are important to me.’
However, she wouldn´t want to go back to her old life. Through regular meetings with old acquaintances, Julia clearly recognizes the positive changes in her life. Compared to many of her friends, she has often had the opportunity to travel abroad. Her experiences go far beyond those of others her age. Julia is of the opinion: “Sugar Dating has given me unique opportunities and contributed to my personal growth.”
For Julia, Thomas is not just an older, wealthy man financing her life; he is someone who provides advice, and she can learn from his experiences. The two have big plans for the future. ‘In the semester break, our next joint vacation is planned, something very special for me. We’re going to New York.’
Back then, Anna could not have imagined that registering on a dating platform would dramatically change her life. From financial worries to a carefree life and with that, Anna only has to worry about her studies; the rest is basically taken care of. She enjoys this life, yet she knows, ‘In my heart, I will always be the girl from the village.
