I really do think some women need a Sugardaddy and don’t know it.
Let me tell you what I mean….
After a long afternoon helping a client at a strategy meeting, he suggested our teams head out for a drink, to celebrate the project being pretty much done.
Another lovely day in London (it can’t last) and so we headed to a cool bar in Smithfield, just outside the City, with a large terrace.
As the evening wore on and people drifted away home, I was left chatting to a cool, intelligent 25 year old woman, who’s one of my client’s sales team.
She is quite attractive, sports some discrete but sexy tattoos and has a figure made for the short black dress she was wearing.
But there was something missing.
Something about her wasn’t captivating me, I tried to work it out, then it hit me, no grooming.
Her fingernails were shocking, no polish and no manicure. Then I noticed her shoes, she was wearing flats, ok, no great crime, but they were scruffy.
This is a woman who is complaining to me that she sees guys, a lot of them quite senior, all day in her job and she can’t work out why they’re not hitting on her.
I then noticed that her lipstick looked as if it had been put on by a blind women on a dark night.
I wanted to tell her that her appearance was lacking a certain finesse, but couldn’t work out a polite way to say it.
I just wondered for a moment if I should mention my Sugardaddy life and how I insist the ladies I see are beautifully groomed and how it makes such a difference to their confidence.
It’s not all about money, it’s about presentation and personal standards, it’s about creating the impression that you are a serious grown-up and that you are someone that’s serious in life as in business.
I left her, glad that I hadn’t let a couple of glasses of wine loosen my discretion, but also feeling a little sad that this woman’s potential success was being held back by want of a Sugarbabe style grooming makeover.
