So after a long and tiring workout at the gym, I was flipping through the channels looking for something to watch after a long day. So as I was flipping I saw True Life. SO I began watching it because I was curious.......True Life I'm a sugar baby. First of all I couldn't believe that this was real, this episode of True Life followed 2 young women and one young male who searched for sugar daddies and sugar mamas to help pay for their upkeep. While watching the episode I could not believe that these young people really connected with older people to shower them with gifts, and give them money for nothing in return.
I don't know about everybody else but once I was 16 and I had my working papers the first thing I did was look for a job. Yes, my parents could have continued to pay my way but I wanted to make my own money so I could use it how I pleased. From then on I became very independent, it pains me to ask people for money, even those closest to me. So it was painful to watch these young people say that they hated working and that they would rather have somebody pay their way through life. And the fact that they had so many expensive things and worked for not one thing, I just couldn't understand it. What is even more disturbing is the fact that there are actual sites for sugar baby hopefuls to find their potential sugar daddies.
Now I have to be honest I wouldn't mind being showered with expensive gifts and spending money without thinking twice, but at the end of the day where does that get you. I really feel that the younger generation has a mindset of being entitled especially when they are not deserving. What happened to working hard to get where you are and then relaxing and enjoying the fruit of your labor. I know the economy is bad, but does that give anyone an excuse to lay on their butt for their entire life and aspire to be a Sugar Baby???? I just can't imagine it!
