I think that in my personal case you are right - as I posted earlier, I don't know what I was expecting to get out of it, but whatever it was, was wrong. Whether it's psychotic to have 4 brilliant punts, then to suddenly feel terrible about it and be desperate to get out of it somehow, I don't know, and I should probably have seen the signs well in advance, but ignored them. It's all on Page 1 - I always have to post detailed analysis online of my punting, and that's just another indicator that for me it's Wrong, as you say.
But in general, I can't see that things can ever be as clearcut as this. Eg a teacher isn't paid to take an interest in their pupils' family lives, but will often end up doing so. If you read the Annals of EAS on this forum you'll see that often punters and WGs become email buddies, or more. Also during the 3 hour-long punts with Lindsay we spent at least half of each one talking in quite personal detail, perhaps combined with massage. I can't speak for the ladies here but I'll bet they get a fair few say elderly clients who can't make it any more or don't want to but are lonely and just pay for companionship
Anyway when I made spoof bookings earlier so as to be able to leave -FB about being stood up yesterday I then had a message to call her - but of course it was only Jessica pretending to be Lindsay, wasn't it, treating them as genuine. I used the remaining two slots to make some more less than charitable FB, then deleted my account. She deserves it, IMO.
Thanks for your feedback, guys, and once this thread goes quiet I shan't be back.
