If you are not interested in joining a sugar dating site to find a sugar daddy and sugar baby relationship, but you still want to find a mutually beneficial relationship, then Craigslist is a cheap and easy option for you.
How To Make The Most Out Of Your Craigslist Ad
First, you want to post your ad in casual encounters inside the personal category, which means that you are looking for a no strings attached relationship. By selecting the appropriate category, you will decrease your chances of getting reported and having your ad get taken down.
Furthermore, you will be asked questions such as who you are, who you are looking for, where you are looking for someone. It’s important to fill as much as possible in. The more you fill in, the more sincere and non-spammy your ad will look.
Because you are writing a personal ad for a sugar daddy or sugar baby, you need to be as open as possible so that readers know you are not a poster who is weird or sketchy. We know that many people already feel like Craigslist is a sketchy place to post an ad, so you need to put in some details that show how sincere you are about finding a mutually beneficial relationship.
For instance, you can put in your body shape, height, and status to help people get a clearer picture of what you look like. You can also choose to put in more attributes about yourself that are similar to regular questions you would put on an online dating profile, such as hair color, dislikes, education, and more. All of these can be chosen from drop-down boxes as you create your ad. Furthermore, you can describe more details about yourself in the ad, such as where you are from, why you are a catch physically, and what you are looking for.
And, in the body of the post, you can put in details that pertain to the type of sugar daddy relationship you want, such as “Need help with finances while I go to college.”
All of this will help to show interested people that you are much more serious than if you were to write something like ‘Looking for sugar daddy. Thanks.’
It’s important to note that some sincere people have their ads taken down for some unknown reason while obvious scammers have their ads left alone. Why? We’ll never know. But if you follow the above rules, you’ll have the best chance of keeping your ad up and finding that sugar daddy or sugar baby.
Safety Tips To Consider When Placing An Ad On Craigslist
Because there is no screening on Craigslist, anyone can post an ad or respond to your ad. Therefore, you have to take some safety precautions to ensure you end up meeting someone who you actually want to meet.
Ask for photos. In fact, let people know that you will not respond to anyone who does not post a photo. You may want to ask people to hold up a newspaper so that you can see the date and verify that they are actually a person responding today. While this may seem like you are going too far, anyone looking for a sugar daddy or sugar baby relationships will understand that you are taking precautions for your safety. As a bonus, it will make you look even more genuine.
Also, ask for a specific thing to be put in the subject of the email so that you can be sure the responder is not a spammer. For example, ask them to put their favorite color as the subject line. Anyone who reads your entire ad will do as you request so that they can be taken seriously by you.
In addition, make sure to ask for details from anyone who replies. You took the time to share a little bit about yourself, so anyone who is really interested will make the time to share a little bit about themselves too.
And, educate yourself on common scams on Craigslist so that you can avoid the people who are obviously trying to make money from you. For instance, one scam is called the ‘safe dating’ scam. Someone will respond to your ad on Craigslist, but let you know that they are worried about all the issues that have arisen from meeting people on Craigslist. Then they will ask you to click on a link and give them your credit card number so that they can do a background check on you. Unfortunately, they just end up taking your money.
Essentially, if you are asked to go to a certain link or if you are asked for money of any amount, consider the person a scammer. They know that you are looking for a relationship where money plays a big part, and so they will word their responses or ads in a way to convince you that you are talking to someone actually looking to meet you – only after money is involved in some way though. Only communicate with people who want to talk and get to know you more.
Lastly, if you are not posting an ad, but just looking on Craigslist for a sugar daddy or sugar baby, make sure you only contact people who seem real and sincere. If it seems too good to be true, or if something feels really off and creepy about the ad, then your gut is probably right and you should avoid them.
