How To Save Money And Still Look Like A Real Socialite? Here Is What You Can Learn From Sugar Babies

So here’s what happened. On October 11th, a somewhat established blogger in China spent 500 RMB and got in a WeChat group chat for a secret circle of female socialites in Shanghai. Ok, there are some things one might not know about what it means to be a female socialite in China. Ming Yuan, the Chinese words for the female socialite, has two meanings. The first one we all know, people like Kim K and her sisters; the second one though means those who wear Gucci bags and frequent high-class places to meet rich men, you know, sugar-baby-wannabe. The Ming Yuan WeChat group chat the blogger was in is a platform for those sugar-baby-wannabes to…how should I phrase it…share the costs of Gucci bags and Ritz-Carlton rooms.

Girls in this “secret society” basically formed a group purchase organization, so they get to enjoy tiny pieces of luxurious services and products they cannot afford at all for a very short period. But why do they do that? Because “pictures or it didn’t happen," and those pictures are the evidence of them being real socialites. They post these pictures on their social media to create the persona of a young, successful, independent girl. Those pictures are quite similar and so are the personas they created, therefore the whole process is like an assembly line for Ming Yuan.

Although, those who know what’s up would know that they are not real socialite, but are looking for sugar daddies or rich husbands, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing for those girls. I know it doesn’t make sense, like, how is it a good thing for them to be exposed? Here is the thing, those rich guys are not really looking for a successful, independent woman. Instead, they are looking for young girls who are easy to control and do what they say as long as he spends enough money on them, which is the end goal for those Ming Yuan. Yay, female objectification in 2020.

However, even though the original blog post was meaning to expose how pathetic and fake they are, I actually don’t blame them. Ok, I know I sounded condescending, but I swear on my mother’s grave, I’m not judging them for being sugar babies. First of all, everyone knows that it is very hard to be beautiful unless you are from Sweden. For an average girl like me, to achieve a sugar baby level of pretty, I have to work out every day, learn how to do makeup, and use ex-boyfriends’ blood for facial masks. Jk. What I’m trying to say is, it takes real hard work and good genes to be a qualified sugar baby. And gosh, you have to be likable. It can be hard to be beautiful and likable.

Having said that, I do find their mentalities interesting. In the chat history, one girl was complaining that the guy who was flirting with her at an art show does not drive a Ferrari like she expected, and would not take her hint for taking her shopping. After the complaint, another girl proceeds to draw the conclusion: “basing on my experience, don’t hang out with those who drive BMW and Mercedes, because they are super stingy and hard to deal with."

In their defense, maybe those who drive cars that are lesser than Ferrari can’t afford to buy Hermès bags for those girls they barely know. But one way to look at it is that, since the girls are already objectifying themselves and are selling themselves as products, why do they think they are worthy for someone to buy them Hermès bags while they need to share the cost of a pair of stockings? Good question. My uneducated guess is that the guys who drive BMW and Mercedes probably just made it to the top of the middle class, and they are not willing to spend too much money on strangers who only want their money. However, those who can afford to spend tons of money on sugar babies are easier to deal with, because they have too much money to care. Ha, rich people’s world.

There is no new thing under the sun, and nothing is strange these days. Other than the those fake socialite, there are also wives of the stars, which I am going to write about in the future to fill this 3-posts-per-week quota. Man, maybe I should just quit my job, quit doing comedy, and start working out to attract rich dudes, but the amount of work I have to put in to be beautiful is probably harder than earning another degree. Plus, I’m too old for that. Anyways, the takeaway of this post is probably, ugh, profession sugar babies should gang up and learn to save money, I guess? But please don’t share stockings for god’s sake. That is all I have for now. Thanks for reading this stupid story from the other side of the earth.
