Veteran dating websites

Even then, the idea of taking cash felt so irksome to both parties that we did it in the form of a monthly loaded store card from Selfridges.

Despite our spark, we knew we wouldn’t see each other again: neither of us were looking for anything more than a short but intimate romance.

It took me 18 months of receiving gifts in return for my company before I accepted money – or an “allowance”, as it is known on the sugar daddy sites.

A French man invited me to dinner and offered to give me £500 for my time.

Of course, the fat, balding ones still went into the delete bin, but many were perfectly dateable.

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.

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.
