This is just a quick note that for more experienced SBs will know goes without saying. But for those just starting out, this is incredibly important.


One minute “Briton” is talking about some billion dollar deal he’s getting himself into and possibly getting me a new car and it all sounds so fantastical (but at the back of my mind I knew not to get too attached to the idea of it) and then this morning he texts me - after a several day radio silence - telling me he’s being hit with a lawsuit and he’s going to be out of commission for a while.

All this after I slept with him for the first time last week. Coincidence? By my experience? Absolutely not.

But, don’t think I’ve been the naive little bunny who got played. He’s been giving me a steady per date allowance since we met and we’ve been out several times. In all, I’ve probably got a few thousand from him. Plus lots of wine and fancy dinners. So I’d say all that in exchange for one night is fine.

Still, I’m pretty irritated.

However, this latest flake experience has only reinforced a few lessons I learned a long time ago:

1) Always have at least two Sugar Daddies. You know, in case one up and flakes on you.


2) Never delete your dating profile.

See, now I’ll have to fill Briton’s spot. Because if my other SD flakes on me as well, I’ll be SD-less. It’s always good to have your options open. Because keep in mind ladies, he can drop you with a snap of his fingers. You might be getting comfortable. And he might be getting cozy with someone else…or whatever.

Just stay vigilant and NEVER rely on anyone but yourself.

Until next time ladies 💋

So hypothetically speaking, if the army of the Roman Republic, at its peak, met the army of the Empire, also at its peak, who would win? Would the tactics and equipment be very different?

The Empire would win, no contest (sorry, Skywalker). 

The thing you’re not considering in this hypothetical scenario, and the fact that overshadows any other advantage, is the sheer size of the army the Roman Empire possessed, at its peak. As the Empire amassed more countries, they had to make sure they contained these new states and controlled them. To this end, they took troops from other areas in the empire and deposited them in other countries, promising men their citizenship at the end of their duties. 

Now, that little history lesson only had one reason, I admit, but it was an important one: the Empire had to have had enough troops to (at the very least) visit each of the places that it controlled. And that space was, at its peak, well:

Now, size aside, the Empire had some other advancements that would have been hard for the Republic’s army to combat.

But sadly, I’m not nearly well-versed enough in Rome’s army to note all of those things. But if anyone else happens to be an expert in that, I’m sure they’d be happy to add their two cents on the debate.
