Before you start freaking out, I want you to take a deep breath and think objectively for a second, without judgment or hate. Why hate on girls who strive for a better lifestyle anyway? To each their own, right? If you don't understand the whole sugar daddy mentality, you're free to date whoever you want, dear reader.
You need to realize that this subject is a reality for a lot of girls.SeekingArrangement.com released a list of Canadian universities and ranked them according to which schools had the most newly registered sugar babies on the site. In all of Canada, McGill University took the #2 spot. So here are ten reasons why you might want to date a sugar daddy.
1. Shop till you drop
Getting into a relationship with a sugar daddy will obviously open a whole new world on a financial level. You'll be able to turn all your shopping dreams into reality. No more window shopping!
Traveling is, by far, one of the best things in life. Sugar daddies can obviously help you in this department. You can travel in the comfort of business class, stay at the best hotels and experience different cultures on a whole new level.
3. Never worry about money
Financial struggles is something most of us are familiar with. Imagine how much easier your life would be if you never had to worry about money again? No stress, no problem.
4. Experience things you wouldn't experience otherwise
Fine dining, extravagant gifts and a lavish environment... Who wouldn't want to live in a fairy tale at least once in their lives?
5. Look your best
It costs serious money to look good. Manicures, pedicures, hair and body treatments, nice clothes, etc. Yes, obviously, you're born with certain assets, but maintaining your natural beauty is definitely not a cheap activity.
6. Power trip
Financial stability can give you a serious power trip. You can afford a lot of things and that, in turn, makes you feel like a boss.
7. Interact with someone fascinating
Sugar daddies have interesting life stories you can learn from. Spending time with an older, more experienced man is anything but boring. He can teach you a lot of things.
8. Drive a nice car
Why not? Nice cars are great. Do you really need to be convinced on this point? I didn't think so.
9. Feel independent
As much as you're going to be dependent on your sugar daddy, your financial freedom will give you a sense of independence in itself, and it will definitely feel good.
10. Break the "rules"
Dating a sugar daddy is a huge taboo in our society... so if you decide to go for it, you're basically saying "Fuck you everyone, I do what I want!". Being a "bad girl" feels awesome.
The airline is scheduling flights all over Canada including Montreal, Halifax, Moncton, Quebec City, St. John's, Thunder Bay, Toronto, and Ottawa as of September 8.
In a statement, Porter Airlines president and CEO Michael Deluce said that "this is the moment our team members, passengers and the communities we serve have been waiting for."
"While deciding to suspend our service was the most difficult business decision we've made, announcing a restart of flights is the first step in a recovery process that includes recalling hundreds of team members and welcoming back passengers."
Porter will also soon resume its international flights to U.S. cities including Boston, Chicago, New York and Washington as of September 17.
For added peace of mind, Porter Airlines customers will be happy to know that "all fares purchased by July 20, for travel through December 15, 2021, [are] fully refundable, with no fees."
Knowing how to manage your money can be tough. Personal finance isn't something that's typically taught in schools, and if you don't have a financially savvy person in your life, you might be left to figure it out on your own.
To help you learn more about money management and how to get more value from the things you do every day, Narcity got in touch with Erica Nielsen, Senior Vice President of Everyday Banking and Client Growth at RBC.
They spoke about tips to help you manage your money, and the launch of RBC Vantage — which gives you access to a comprehensive suite of benefits, interactive tools, rewards and savings available simply by having an RBC bank account.
"Saving money is not impossible and reaching your goals is easier if you start by making a plan," said Nielsen. "Having an incentive in mind can also make it easier to avoid spending your savings on an immediate temptation."
As a first step, a good tip is to take stock of where you are financially and put your goals down on paper. Having both short-term goals (like paying off credit card debt or heading off on a weekend getaway) and long-term goals (such as buying a house) will help inspire you to leave that money alone.
Look for a rewards program that makes it easy to earn points for the things you are already doing every day.
With RBC Vantage, for example, eligible clients can now earn RBC Rewards when using debit. Not only will this give you more ways to earn rewards, it's a big benefit if you don't have a rewards credit card. You can also get access to so many more rewards and savings from great Canadian brands like Petro-Canada and Rexall.
"Whether you're saving up for a big purchase or looking for ways to pay for everyday expenses and purchases, rewards points can play an important role," said Nielsen.
Make Sure You Have The Right Banking Products For Your Needs
It may be hard to know which bank account is right for you. A good place to start is by looking for an account that offers features that leave more money in your wallet – from ways to save on monthly fees and unlimited transactions to savings on ATM fees.
To help you in your search, RBC has launched new interactive tools to make it easy to find the account that best meets your needs and discover even more benefits.
And if you are a student, make sure to check out the new RBC Advantage Banking. The monthly fee on this account is free for full-time students during your studies.
AI-driven tools, like NOMI, make it easier to break down some of the barriers some people might face when managing money, such as not having enough time and not paying close attention to your financial situation. From budgeting to saving, NOMI can help you manage your finances with confidence. (More to come on this!)
You can also use a helpful digital platform like MyAdvisor to create a personalized plan and connect with an advisor in your community, online, by phone or in person.
"Budgeting is a fundamental tool that helps you manage your money and stay in good financial shape," said Nielsen. "It puts you in control of your day-to-day spending and financial future by making you more aware of where your money is going."
Despite this, less than half (49%) of Canadians keep a budget, according to the 2019 Canadian Financial Capability Survey. If you're considering getting on top of your budgeting but feel overwhelmed at the idea, rest assured that you don't have to start from scratch.
Consider a digital tool like NOMI Budgets which does the heavy lifting for you. It takes the math out of money management by recommending personalized budgets for you based on your spending habits, and it can help you stay on track with notifications and reminders.
Setting up automatic transfers from your chequing to your savings account can help you keep up with your savings goals, especially if you tend to spend your income as soon as it lands in your account.
There are also convenient tools out there to help you never miss an opportunity to save. Through RBC's NOMI Find & Save, for example, clients may save money they didn't even know they had. This feature "uses predictive technology" to find extra dollars it thinks you won't miss and automatically moves them into a savings account.
So if you've been hoping to plan a trip, Calgary in September is definitely one to consider. With Air Transat, departing September 8 from the Montreal Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport and returning from the Calgary International Airport on September 30, the total for a round-trip flight would be $332 with taxes and fees included.
The only catch is, to get a flight at this price, you'll need to fly "Eco Budget," which means no checked bags and you'll have to pay $34.49 to bring a carry-on, plus another $51.74 if you want to bring a second bag. Moral of the story: make sure to pack light so you can fly cheap.
You may have already missed the Calgary Stampede, but this city in Alberta still has all kinds of beautiful spots to see and exciting things to do. Plus, Banff is only an hour away, so you could totally make a pit stop there, too!
Flight prices were accurate at the time of writing this article but are subject to change.

In a summary of a call between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and provincial premiers, the prime minister's office stated that the government is engaging in "discussions with the United States on reopening plans" and that "we could expect to start allowing fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents into Canada as of mid-August for non-essential travel."
The announcement echoed a sentiment shared earlier by Quebec Premier François Legault who suggested Thursday that the federal government allow Americans to enter Canada before citizens of other countries, according to reports.

"If our current positive path of vaccination rate and public health conditions continue," the summary continued, "Canada would be in a position to welcome fully vaccinated travellers from all countries by early September."
About 80% of eligible Canadians have a first vaccine dose and 50% have a second dose, according to the statement.
Finally, the Canadian government is also discussing "the importance of working collaboratively on a proof of vaccination credential."
