6 golden rules of dating a sponsor

Or you suffer the consequences

Of course, dating a sponsor has its own perks as well as drawbacks. But if you must or have to date a sponsor, you must adhere to some rules for a smooth sailing. And, bear in mind that it’s not gonna be a bread and butter affair.

Here are some rules to observe when dating a sponsor:

1. Don’t fall in love

First, this depends on why you are dating the old guy and whether there is a probability of having a future with them. If for heaven sake you are certain that you have no future with him, don’t invest your feelings in the relationship. If money is the business, strictly stick to that.

2. Don’t be jealous

This is a tricky one but you are not allowed to be jealous of the main woman if you are the side dish. Harsh, right? Well, it’s one of the downside of dating a sponsor. See, if he has a wife already, he is definitely more attached to that woman and there isn’t much you can do about it.

3. No late night calls

You have to know when to call him or text him. Calling at strange hours of the night might put him in trouble with the wife and this will of course cost your affair. Even if he is not married, these old fellas prefer going to bed early and they won’t like it when you disrupt their sleep.

4. Be tolerant

See, this sponsor is probably a busy man and might not have all the time in the world to be with you. Sometimes, he will be travelling for business meetings and you might stay for weeks without seeing each other. He might also be slow and a little bit boring when it comes to having fun. You still gotta bear with him.

5. Take him slow

For you, life is just beginning but he is probably battling the mid-life crisis. When your sexual drive is at its climax, he may not be your best match in the bedroom because his libido is slowly declining. So, however adventurous you are, you may have to stick to some lazy and boring styles for his sake.

6. Be smart

Again, this depends with the purpose of your relationship. With sponsors, you are never sure of anything. Always be prepared for anything as they can be so random in making decisions. He might wake up one day and decide to end the whole thing. Make smart choices so that you will have nothing to lose even if the relationship ends.
