Sugar Baby Education 101: 7 Etiquette Habits

It is a big part of sugar baby’s lifestyle to be comfortable go out on dates with their SDs to high-end restaurants, opening galleries, charities, fundraisers, and balls. What most newbies do not know/lack is the proper etiquette habits. 

For those men who surround themselves with successful people 24/7, would be a big turn off to be with a young lady who does not know how to behave and know the unspoken rules in the public. It is important for all sugar babies to know how to act classy and elegant, take your time, don’t be in a rush, be sophisticated and be a mystery for your SD. 

When you are dating a millionaire, the right manners and ways of conducting yourself assume an even a greater importance since they indicate grooming and class – qualities which are important in the upper classes.

Here are a few tips on dating etiquette if you are seeing someone rich and successful and wish to come off as his/her ideal partner.

#1 How to Communicate

  • Not every thought that comes into your head should come out of your mouth. Vet your thoughts. Speaking your mind does not mean sharing every thought. Some thoughts are not appropriate and could cause irreparable damage to your relationships.
  • Never gossip. Most gossip is bad, negative and damages relationships.
  • Look everyone in the eye for no more than 5 seconds at a time, then divert your glance for another 5 seconds. Practice will turn this into a habit. 
  • Make eye contact with people you speak with.
  • Never criticize, condemn or complain about anyone to another relationship. It’s a giant red flag. People will assume that you are bad mouthing them and will try to stay away from forming any strong relationships with you.

#2 Focus on your partner

When dating a rich man , it is important to let them know you value the time and effort your partner is spending on you. And one of the best ways to do this is by being attentive to your date. Maintain steady eye contact with him and listen actively to what he has to say. Smile often and present a positive body language. Also avoid fiddling with our phone (do not take pictures of the food, take snapchat of yourself, etc. do not present yourself as immature girl.). Unless you’re on call at a high-pressure job, you have no excuse for frequently checking your PDA. Flashing expensive technology makes you look self-absorbed and immature. If you must take a call or check a text, apologize for being rude, and tell your date why it’s necessary.

#3 Eating Etiquette

Believe it or not, most people don’t know how to eat. In the adult world of the successful, you need to know how to eat at social settings. Let’s go down the list:

  • As soon as you sit in your chair take the napkin off the table and drape it over your lap.
  • Never begin eating until everyone has their meal.
  • Never chew with your mouth opened.
  • Never talk while you’re chewing your food.
  • Never dip any food you’re eating into a sauce everyone is using.
  • Don’t wolf down your food. Eat at the same pace as everyone else at the table.
  • Never hold a spoon, fork or knife with your fist.
  • Outside fork is for salads, inside fork for the meal.
  • Never make gestures while your utensils are in your hands.
  • Never reach for anything like salt and pepper. Always ask someone to pass things like that.
  • Don’t slouch at the table. Sit straight up.
  • After the meal, excuse yourself and go to the bathroom and make sure you don’t have any food in your teeth. Carry a toothpick or something similar in your wallet or purse wherever you go.
  • If your date orders, compliment his choices, whether it is his choice of dessert or the wine. At the end of the dinner, thank your partner for inviting you out and don’t leave it for the next day.Focus

#4 Dress Etiquette

When dating a millionaire, it is crucial to turn out in a classy and elegant manner. Adopt a personal style which highlights your best features and above all, get the basics of grooming right. Even though you may not be able to afford a Louis Vuitton handbag or a Cartier watch, ensure that whatever you are wearing is suits you and is appropriate for the occasion.

  • Work and Job Interviews – Some professions have special purpose clothing like construction, roadwork, electricians etc. If you work in an office, dress like your boss or your boss’s boss. In some offices it’s business casual, in others, it’s a suit and tie for men. For women its slacks, or skirts with open collars, heels or no heels are ok.
  • Weddings, Wakes, Funerals –  In most cases, this will be suit and tie for men. For women, it’s the same as work clothes but many women like to wear more formal gowns or a more stylish cocktail dress, usually worn with heels. Some cultures have special dress codes you need to be aware of.
  • Formals – Usually formals are black tie optional, black tie or white tie for men. Optional usually means a dark suit, tie or black bow tie, dark shoes. Black tie means black tuxedo, dark shoes, white tie means black tailcoat, white wing-collar shirt, white bow tie, black shoes for men. For women, it’s a long formal gown or short cocktail dress or dressy long skirt and top, usually worn with heels. White ties are very rare.

#5 Introducing Yourself

In life, you will be forced into situations where you will meet new people. This is an opportunity to develop valuable relationships.

There are 5 basic rules to making introductions:

  • Smile
  • Firm Handshake
  • Make Eye Contact
  • In one sentence explain who you are, why you’re there and who you know at the event
  • Ask Questions About the Person You are Introducing Yourself to.

#6 Basic Manners

  • Yes
  • Please
  • Thank you
  • Be punctual (Being punctual is especially important when dating the rich since for them time is money, and as soon as they find you tardy, they will see you as a waste of time.)
  • Excuse me when interrupting or entering a conversation
  • Don’t interrupt someone while they are talking
  • Don’t roll your eyes when someone says something you disagree with
  • Don’t look away when someone is talking to you
  • Never check your cell phone when talking to someone
  • Stay positive and keep criticisms and negative comments to yourself
  • Compliment, compliment, compliment
  • Thank anyone hosting an event, dinner etc.
  • Never curse or use inappropriate language during social events
  • Never be rude

#7 Learn to handle embarrassing moments

No one is born with perfect manners and it is all a matter of practice. So while dating your SD if you realize that you have committed a faux pas, make as little of it as possible. Ignore whatever you did or didn’t do and force your mind onto something else. Go on smoothly as if nothing happened and very soon people around you will do the same.

Warning: Smutty smut smut smut

You sat on the backseat of the Audi nervously bouncing your leg, not knowing exactly what to do as Tom held the car door open for you. You looked up at him, feeling the ball of nerves in your stomach calm down the moment your eyes meet his welcoming brown irises.

You hadn’t made such a public appearance with him yet and you didn’t know what to expect, but Tom has assured you that he wouldn’t leave your side all night.

You could hear the crowd absolutely screaming, flashes lit up the dark sky, and the sound of paparazzi yelling for attention mixed with the screams of fans after catching their first glimpse of Tom.

You take Tom’s outstretched hand, stepping out onto the red carpet rolled across the floor beneath you.

You jiggled with the cool metallic doorknob that was connected to Tom’s office. Your keys were wrong and you barely had one hand to use since one of them was holding his coffee and someone’s résumé as well as someone’s bag of muffins. You would die for coffee and muffins at this point but, you ate two hours ago. You fumbled with the keys before finally pushing in the correct key and unlocking the glass door before opening it as wide as possible. The purse you had around your shoulder bounced against your side as you huffed out a breath. You wanted this day to be over already. It wasn’t going the way it normally did.

You normally brought Tom his coffee before he arrived and then brought Glenda, the front desk lady, the muffins she always wanted. His coffee was always black with two sugars and a creamer and her muffins were always wheat and blueberry.

'Gotham' Star Chris Chalk Marries Kimberley Dalton Mitchell
'Gotham' and '12 Years a Slave' actor Chris Chalk married Kimberley Dalton Mitchell in a romantic wedding ceremony in North Carolina on Saturday, April 22 — photos

Congratulations! Gotham star Chris Chalk married his fiancée, Kimberley Dalton Mitchell, in a romantic wedding ceremony on Saturday, April 22, the newlyweds confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

The happy couple, who got engaged last September, exchanged vows in front of their closest friends and family members at the North Carolina Arboretum in Chalk’s hometown of Asheville, North Carolina. The groom looked dapper in a white suit jacket, a white button-down shirt, a white bow tie and black pants, while his bride stunned in a lace gown and wore Jennifer Behr circlets in her hair.

Underground star Alano Miller and She’s Gotta Have It actress DeWanda Wise, who first introduced the duo, served as the best man and maid of honor, respectively.

Chalk, Mitchell and their 135 guests headed to the reception at Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville via traditional yellow school buses. “I think there’s something about a school bus that immediately humbles you. It’s fun,” Chalk tells Us. Mitchell adds, “We didn’t want people driving up the mountain after [drinking champagne at the ceremony].”

For the wedding, the newlyweds asked their guests to dress their sexiest. “Our actual instruction was, ‘Dress how you would dress if you knew you were going to make out with somebody that night,’” the 12 Years a Slave actor tells Us, quipping that he and Mitchell “had to dial it back for some people.”

During the reception, the pair and their friends danced to a mix of their favorite '90s R&B songs and today’s biggest hits. “We told our DJ, 'Pretend you’re DJ-ing for the club,’” Mitchell says. “That’s what we want. Just trying to throw the ultimate dance party.”

As for the food? Guests enjoyed shrimp and grits, duck confit, salmon, steak and a waffle and bacon bar, among other delicious treats.

A/N: *elated manic cackling* This one is my favorite. I’m so excited for you guys to read it. Let me know what you think! I wouldn’t be writing it without your support ♥ Also, I’d like to clarify that you shouldn’t be drinking unless you’re a responsible age and you should NEVER drive drunk. Ever. We good on that? Ok cool. Enjoy this smutty drunken good time.


I slipped on my new high heels and twirled around in my bedroom, watching as my full skirt spun around me. “Does this look okay?”

My friend Jo was in the bathroom putting on eyeliner. She looked over at me, taking in my fancy dress and heels. “Yeah, you look so pretty. Come zip me up.”

Jo gathered her straight blonde hair over her shoulder as I zipped up her fitted black cocktail dress and then I turned to look in the mirror at my own dress. Shiny black lace with a fitted strapless bodice and an A-line skirt that accentuated my curves. I’d even added pantyhose with a black seam down the back to keep me warm in the autumn air, and also because they were sexy as hell and made my legs look longer. I’d spent a week’s tips on the fancy outfit. But I never got to dress up and I wanted to look beautiful for a special someone. He’d seen me in dresses and skirts, but this was different. This was a fancy, public occasion where our secret was taken to an exciting new level.
