When I first thought about working as an escort, my self-esteem was low. Although he had decided to get a job, he thought that no one would hire a man in his 40s. Especially after seeing some advertising sites. The other male escorts were all 10 years younger and had 8 packs!

2020 was a turning point for me. I feel much better about who I am and have become more accepting of my body.
Getting started was an incredibly isolating experience. Most escorts work alone. Because we are busy promoting our business and managing all the admins related to self-employment.
I found my work satisfying on so many levels.
But it wasn’t a completely seamless process. I had to “fire” her first client after she became an obsessive and called repeatedly until I threatened to call the police on her for stalking her.

Despite the negatives, I have found my work to be satisfying on so many levels, but not in the way you think. not. My satisfaction is certainly not a prerequisite.
It’s almost impossible to classify my clients into any kind of box, but they are mostly women between the ages of 35 and 55. .
My friends and family all know what I do for work and are supportive of it, but it’s often difficult to discuss it.
For personal reasons, I am not interested in being in a relationship. Beyond that, it’s similar to my relationship with a client.

We memorize each other’s stories, engage with them, and learn about each other over time. A regular client used to call herself my part-time girlfriend.
