The Anatomy of Allowance: How it Works and What to Do with It

The Sugar Baby allowance is a mysterious invention. On the one hand, it can provide you with the stable income you need to start building wealth, venture into the world of self-employment or perhaps even enjoy life without worrying about your finances as much.

On the other hand, a Sugar Baby allowance can build resentment, make your Sugar Daddy feel used and make you feel like you’re always at his beck and call. Don’t forget your Sugar Daddy income stream can abruptly stop over night. Even more of a reason for your to save when you can.

When it comes down to it, the Sugar Baby allowance is a tricky subject to tackle with anyone, no matter how experienced they may be. There are fine lines that need to be walked, and certain legalities that must be considered – and unless you know what you’re doing, you may very well find yourself tumbling through thin ice.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the anatomy of an allowance, and what you need to remember when asking your Sugar Daddy for one:

Understand That It’s Not Always Expected.
The Sugar Baby allowance isn’t always a part of the Sugar Daddy dating experience; in fact, it’s usually quite the opposite. Therefore, don’t assume that your Sugar Daddy will be all ears when you request an allowance. This means that you’ll need to approach him carefully on the subject, rather than demanding that he start providing you with stable income.

Know Your Rights.
At the heart of the Sugar Baby allowance is a legal contract, which means you’ll need to treat it as such. Here’s a quick lesson on what makes a contract, so you can ensure that you get the monies you’re entitled to: Both you and your Sugar Daddy must agree to all facets of the Sugar Baby allowance. This includes the amount he’ll pay you, the time period that the allowance will cover, the dates he’ll be paying you, and what kind of notification he’ll need to give you if he wishes to discontinue the allowance. Remember, the contract should explicitly define both of your terms and expectations – otherwise, you’ll end up with an unhappy Sugar Baby and Sugar Daddy.

Determine Your Comfort Levels.
While the idea of an allowance might seem like a great idea at first, many Sugar Babies come to realize that this means you’re at your Sugar Daddy’s beck and call. It’s like being a lawyer on retainer; sure, it provides you with a stable source of income, but it also means that you have to drop everything for your Sugar Daddy when he wants you. For some Sugar Babies, it’s not worth the allowance – so take a deeper look to see if it’s truly something you’re comfortable with. One way to look at this is your Sugar Daddy already has a busy business and social life so he is making time for you as well and likely pushing other important issues aside to spend time with you.

Find Other Ways to Get What You Want.
If you’d like the Sugar Baby allowance because you think it’s the only way to get precisely what you want, then it’s time to take your Sugar Baby skills up a few notches. The Sugar Daddy Formula offers a ton of resources and tools about getting precisely what you want from your Sugar Daddy (including our special report: “How to Get Exactly What You Want From Your Sugar Daddy…Without Even Asking!”)
, which means you won’t have to worry about the intricacies of the Sugar Baby allowance.

Ultimately, the decision to have a Sugar Baby allowance is between you and your Sugar Daddy. However, be sure to protect yourself by outlining exactly what you expect from your allowance! One item that should definitely be discussed and documented is your Sugar Daddy’s expectation for your availability- immediate or otherwise.

Now it’s your turn: does your Sugar Daddy give you an allowance? What obstacles have you come across? What would your advice be to other Sugar Babies who are interested in getting their own allowances?
