The cost of living is going up, with prices on food, homes, and necessities increasing on average more than 6.5% in 2022. It's not surprising most of us are trying to be more careful with spending this holiday season, but one self-proclaimed 'cougar' doesn't feel the pinch.
This 44-year-old 'cougar' has said she’ll spend at least $20,000 on her "sugar baby" this Christmas without a single worry. Here is a glimpse of their luxurious lifestyle and their love story.
Do you want to learn a secret technique anyone can master that will make someone fall in love with you?
Love Match Made On Bumble
Julie is a widow who lives in the U.S. Being single in this day and age is hard because it's harder to meet people who aren't fixated on their phones, who don't have commitment issues, or who simply fit our criteria. More and more people are turning to dating apps where they can swipe through thousands of potential mates till they find the one that checks off their checklist.
As Julie was getting back into the dating scene, she was relearning what she wanted out of a relationship. She says: "When I eventually started dating again, I found that I had more in common with younger men and that men my age are typically dating younger women."
That's how Julie met her 29-year-old boyfriend, Zach. They matched on Bumble and started dating for a year. Julie has been lovingly spoiling him ever since.
Trip After Trip
The couple is living a lavish life of travel. In the same year they began dating, the couple took off to the Bahamas, then Costa Rica, while planning another trip to Brazil. Money isn't an issue, so they want to take advantage of their fortune.
In total, Julie spent over $30,000 on trips with Zach, including getaways to Cabo, Florida, and Niagara Falls. Julie is using Christmas to spoil Zach even more than usual this year.
The Boyfriend Has An Extravagant Wishlist
Zach isn't shy about asking for what he truly wants for Christmas this year. Julie explains: "he asked for a sports car or luxury SUV, new skim and surfboards, a new drone (he crashed ours in Exuma), and a watch." She also plans to surprise him with a Range Rover on Christmas Day.
To put it in perspective an SUV alone costs at least $50,000 but can go upwards to $300,000, which is more than most even earn in a year. The median U.S. income in 2021 was just under $70,000!
Julie's Children Get Spoiled Too
Julie isn't trying to be a parent figure to Zach, as she has two adult kids of her one, who are 18 and 21 years old. While the difference between her oldest and Zach is just 8 years, but Julie says that there is no jealousy between them as she will also be spoiling her children for Christmas too.
Julie explains: "My kids are getting a race car and a horse and several thousand in cash. So they are very spoiled too."
Donating To Charity Too
Julie does her best to ensure there is no resentment between Zach and her children, as she effectively spreads her wealth. On top of spoiling the people in her life, she likes to extend her wealth to those less fortunate. After all, she has enough to go around. Julie wants to instill this giving in her children as well.
Julie said: "Throughout the year, I donate quite a bit to charity and encourage them to do the same."So as lavish as my spending sounds, I do also spread it to my community and others that need it."
Zach Pays Her Back In Housechores
It's unclear if Zach has a job of his own, but he repays Julie's generosity by attending to household chores. She explained: "I do all the purchasing, and he does the majority of the domestic tasks such as cooking and cleaning and looking after the pool. "He made several delicious dishes and desserts for our Thanksgiving gathering a few weeks ago, that were a huge hit." It's 2022, after all, and gender roles are being redefined.
Julie is using Tiktok to share their journey together. Naturally, she gets a lot of questions. One of the most popular questions she gets asked as a sugar mama is how she decidd what to buy Zach, to which she answers: 'anything he wants.' In return, he gives her, "anything I want."
However, the couple insists that their relationship isn't just some transaction. Julie explains that Zach is very sweet and nurturing: "He pampers me too. He brushes my hair every night before bed, and rubs me until I fall asleep."
Making Tens Of Thousands Per Month
Understandably, everyone wants to know how Julie has all this money to spare. Julie works as a content creator on social media, a blooming industry where many have made a fortune in a short amount of time thanks to gaining quick fame on the apps. Julie can make between $28,900 and $38,400 a month sharing videos under hashtags such as #cougarville and #agegapcouple and has 93,000 followers on TikTok.
Despite the couple's connection, however, Julie has no plans to re-marry or get more sugar babies.
Some Are Jealous
Many of her TikTok followers are envious of the life she and Zach lead, with some proposing their resumes and wondering where they could find a similar arrangement.
One person commented: "Genuinely, is there anything I can do for you as a paid service because I am POOR poor." Another wrote: "I feel cheated. Where were these cougars at when I was younger? Guys these days have it so easy.” Another person joked: “Tough seeing other people live your dreams.” Some of the users also use the comment section to ask questions to satisfy their curiosities about the arrangement, which Julie is happy to answer in vlog formats.
