The more I read this thread the more you lot are making me feel like cold hearted bastard. In a way I'm glad but perish the thought I succumbed to the "Emotional Attachment Syndrome", it would destroy my family. Maybe that's why I try to visit many girls as possible and hardly ever return to the same girl. The only time I had an Emotional Attachment Syndrome was with a lover of mine (a civvie) who was single. I knew it was a mistake from day one but I lost control and inevitably the relationshit ended up badly. We both fell in love but as these things usually go my family won over "the other woman".
But Emotional Attachment Syndrome with a prossie? No way.
But don't you have to be a cold-hearted bastard, akauya; simply because you're a family man? [I'm sure you know I'm not getting at you, akauya; simply making the point that, if any
married/co-habiting punter doesn't want to risk his family falling apart, he's got
to be a cold-hearted bastard when he goes for a punt.]
One of the things that I don't think has come out of this thread [I'm not trawling back through 8 pages!] is any differentiation between the marital, [or at least the family] status of those of us who are, or have been, vulnerable to Emotional Attachment Syndrome.
I for one am a widower with no kids, and I suppose that made me susceptible to an attractive young woman who, if I'd met her in Civvy Street, I'd have thought, "Wow; she's nice, but out of my league" and done nothing about it. But, because I paid her to fuck her, that wasn't my starting-point.
