(or Mama's) Ever had one? Ever thought of attempting to get one? What are your thoughts on this type of relationship? ~~~~ Personally; I've never traded stuff for sex, no. Companionship-- kind of. In highschool one of my guy friends was very lonely. I never had money to go out and do things, since all of the money I made went towards paying rent-- so he would pay for me to go out and do things with him/and our friends. He bought me food and clothes and drove me places when I needed a ride. I think he was just very lonely and would've done pretty much anything to have some sort of close contact with someone. He's doing pretty well now from what I understand! He's had several girlfriends since starting University-- so good for him to push through his shyness! Mom always used to tease me, calling him my sugar daddy... I always just called him one of my best friends. I hope that he saw me as a good friend, too... just... an expensive one. XD I never *asked* for things, and never accepted things that I didn't really need. He was always the one to suggest purchasing stuff, since I've always liked to buy stuff with the money that I've earned myself.
