IF you’re in a loving, committed relationship, it’s generally considered pretty bad form to be messaging other people on the side.
But what if those other people are the ones paying your bills? It might sound far-fetched – but this is something 22-year-old Calli knows all about.
Last month, the TikTok star – who boasts over a MILLION followers on the platform – opened up about how makes money as a “sugar baby”.
But while most women tend to have some form of relationship with their “sugar daddies“, Calli revealed that she never actually meets them in person and charges £72-a-week just to message.
In her seven-part series “Sugar Baby 101”, Calli explained how her boyfriend Carson, 20, is aware of how she makes money through messaging and has no problem with it.
She said: “I do not meet them so he doesn’t care – I basically just get paid to text them.
“My boyfriend reads all of the messages and we are in a healthy relationship so he completely trusts me.”
Everyday, Calli aims to make $300 [£220] from her sugar daddies – but admits that it can sometimes be more or less than this.
Although most will only start paying when they meet up for dates, Calli insists they send her around $100 [£72] a week to message so they can “get to know each other” beforehand.
That said, Calli never actually meets them and has several guys she’s messaging at one time to hit her £220-a-day goal.

Sharing the the line she likes to give them, Calli said: “I like to tell them, ‘well my old sugar daddy used to pay me $100-a-week just to talk and text and stuff.
“‘And then when we were more comfortable, we actually met and then he paid more money.’
“That makes them think, ‘oh she’s actually had a sugar daddy before this who used to pay her and then they actually met.'”
She also recommended using the pandemic, your job or the fact that you live too far away as an excuse not to meet.
What is a sugar daddy and how does the relationship?
A sugar daddy is a generous older man who spends lavishly on his mistress, girlfriend or boyfriend.
He’s often a businessman, who considers himself too busy for conventional dating – and isn’t short of a few bob.
A sugar baby, meanwhile, is normally an attractive younger woman who can’t afford her luxury lifestyle.
The couple will usually establish a financial agreement early on – as well as their boundaries, such as whether or not they’re considering a sexual relationship.
Some sugar babies ask for a monthly allowance, while other get ‘expenses’ in the form of glam holidays and shopping sprees.
While a growing number of sugar babies are university students, who turn to their ‘daddy’ to pay their fees.
In order to find someone who is willing to pay for just messaging, Calli will connect with hundreds of sugar daddies on apps and websites – and admitted it’s “a lot of work”.
She continued: “They’re very lonely and they’re very needy to have someone to talk to.
“You’re going to have to constantly text them, all day and it’s really annoying but it’s worth it.”
In order to ensure she’ll actually get paid, Calli will also give her sugar daddies a deadline and also uses the My Girl Fund app which sugar babies to reply to messages but takes a cut.

Unsurprisingly, not every sugar daddy is happy to pay just to text and Calli warned that other women wanting to try her methods needed to have thick skin.
While she doesn’t plan on doing it forever, Calli – who has launched her own clothing business – said it’s an easy way to make money for now.
She added: “I’m a very smart girl and I have plans for my future – this is just a good side hustle for money.”
