While you are running an escort agency, it is unbelievably hard to get into a new relationship or to stay in one long term. The two issues are equally problematic but come about for very different reasons, although both are to do with the work – which I love and is hard to give up and, if I am honest, I do not want to give up. It is hard to meet a new partner, other than casually, because I work so hard for so many hours every week, and those hours are totally unpredictable. I could have a major client fly in for three days with no notice and need a different girl every three hours. Some to accompany him as arm candy for his business, some for socialising, and some for sex. This all actually happened recently when an investment specialist from Hong Kong flew in to check on a building project unannounced. Things like that make it rather tricky to meet people or arrange dates that I can stick to.
The second problem is the obvious – what woman will be comfortable dating someone who spends their whole working life in Marbella dealing with beautiful and sexy girls who have sex for a living? I do not meet the escort girls in person as often as I used to, but my phone and email are full of professional nude and lingerie shots and glamorous selfies of women trying to convince me to work with them. It is not too much of a stretch to imagine that those same women might not offer me sex to get on the books or to get the best jobs? Obviously this only becomes a problem once someone knows what I do for a living. Which raises the question of when I tell someone what my business really is. Too soon and it can scare them off and too late and they feel deceived and that I have been keeping things from them. Both are perfectly understandable, to be honest.
So when I do occasionally meet a woman that I would like to see on more than a very casual basis, I initially tell her that I am in the e-commerce business, running website, web marketing, SEO and all that. Which is true of course, but not the whole story. And then I have to gradually reveal what kind of sites they are and that I own them. Honestly, it is sometimes too much of a pain to be bothered with so I just burrow deeper into my work.
