It’s been a few years since the term “sugar baby” began circulating the internet, but the world has not yet tired of the concept.
“On a first date with a guy I met in real life, we swapped Tinder stories. He told me that he had been matching with a girl who he knew was still in school and lived with her parents. No, guy I just met, I dont want to imagine you having sex with a 14yearold.
He asked her before picking her up how long she intended to live at home and her response was Well, Im 14, so …To make matters worse, he continued, saying, Can you imagine if I had had sex with her? Why is that even a thing that might have happened?!But when we spoke to both male and female Linked In users who claimed they had been approached on the site, most of them also expressed that they no longer saw it as a safe space devoid of sexual tension.Which is fair: Once the line between what Linked In is designed for (professional networking) and what some people seem to be using it for (dating) becomes blurred, things can get pretty complicated.When a site’s purpose is to offer a secure platform for strangers in the same professional fields to network and find gains in the workplace, something is intrinsically lost when those implicit boundaries are crossed.A lack of distinction can make the platform look like “a neutral way to gauge someone’s interest,” says "Brea" (who asked that we not use her real name), 27.Personally, I receive more messages from guys hitting on me than I do from people looking for professional advice or opportunities.
