– The Male Gigolo
In a change, no doubt a welcome one for many of you, this isn’t one of my Blogs or dating disasters at all. To my enormous relief it seems I am not the only one out there who attracts strange people and who has a disastrous love life. Chatting on Twitter to the lovely @ItsJJJemma about one of her recent experiences, I encouraged her to do a guest blog here to tell her story. Here it is:
After almost 6 years with the father of my boys, he left on discovering I was for a second time, pregnant with (yes his!) baby…. That was enough to put me off for life – or so I thought! Two and a half years on, I thought I was ready to get back into the dating game…. Properly ready. So I joined a site called okcupid – which for me spurned out ALOT of married, painfully shy or men with receding hairlines – I dated them all in search for the man whom melts my ice queen heart!
They all failed miserably. So, after a few months break, I joined up to the infamous plenty of fish (or fucks as I like to call it) – and now I know why!!! Which is why I am writing this guest blog today – too prove that yes, I may be borderline psychotic stalker – BUT it has saved me , time, effort and (yet again) my pride!!!
So, a lovely man started messaging me, tall , dark, handsome – Italian (hell yes!!!) He ticked every single box: lived close but not to close, own place, job, fit, etc etc… So he added me on Facebook, and then twitter (he had good banter and we were getting on great. UNTILL he asked me out. The DM went like this:
HIM: when u free?
ME: is that you asking me out mr?
HIM: I think so
ME: Are you sure?
ME: Oh sounds inviting. Next fri?
HIM: perfect x
I should of trusted my gut! Always trust your effing gut! Usually I’d of told someone who was asking me out in that manner to jog on. But as this man ticked all of the other boxes, I overlooked his cockiness.
I then told my best friend who is also on twitter and she checked his twitter page out – his bio read along the lines of “your local sandwich man and escort” – which I thought and understood to be a joke. WRONG AGAIN! My friend seemed concerned which urged me to then go back on his Facebook page and scroll through months (stalkerish i know) of his timeline in search of some answers. Eventually, I found some old comments from his pals asking if he had “earned much dollar from fucking oap’s recently lol” – NO NOT LOL!!!!!!
So, I decided to ask the italian stallion if he was,infact, a male Gigolo . Again, a man of many words the convo went like this:-
ME: (trying to keep it light hearted in case I was mistaken) “you best not be an escort or I’m not coming on fri 🙂 ”
HIM: Haha ok
ME: Really ?!!?
ME: (fuming) “well I ain’t coming then, you can’t even type more than one worded replies, don’t know how you get any business”.
I then deleted and blocked him off twitter, and unfriended the male prostitute off Facebook.
It all suddenly made sense why someone so gorgeous and seemingly successful was on POF – cos the only women he saw paid for it.
Lesson learnt: If it seems to good to be true, it usually fucking is 🙂
