JEREMY - I spent 2 hours on Monday evening replying to about 70 emails (both those I could and couldn't see) however in those same 2 hours I received 40 new emails which made any progression appear somewhat bittersweet.
I'm still working my way through a back log of messages that built up during my time off in the first week of January.
Am I out of my depth with the admin side of things? Definitely.
Have a found a resolute answer to the problem? Not YET.
I'm not giving up though. I'm going to keep trying new strategies till I find one that works. They do say the road to success is one of trial and error.
ATMIV - Your email must have been one of the ones I opened and read during a study break, some of which I have now responded to and some of which are still pending my attention. I agree, I definitely made a school boy error there as opening mail I cannot immediately respond to will inevitably leave a few of you vulnerable to falling through the net. Lesson learned.
BLUE SUEDE GOO - Cancelled 4 times? Slight exaggeration perhaps? If you could PM me I will try and resolve this with you personally?
BIGUS DICKUS - The problem I had wasn't finding a hotel.. It was finding one that charges less than me! Lol! I'm trying to organise sharing a serviced apartment with another escort friend now.
As for turning down work.. Believe me, I find the situation most surreal. It was only 6 months ago I was sitting in a bar in Bristol newly single and at a bit of a financial loose end when my friend suggested I try escorting. I recall laughing and saying "Don't be ridiculous, I'm not good enough, nobody is ever going to want to pay for me!".. I still feel undeserving and continue to be overwhelmed by the attention, efforts and generosity shown towards me which only aids to heighten my frustration at the fact I am unable to communicate as effectively as I would like and reciprocate your recognition because of the predicament I find myself in. We do however seem to be going round and round in circles a bit on these threads which isn't really achieving anything.. As somebody has already pointed out.. Those willing to wait and persevere will eventually get a meeting.. Those that aren't prepared to do so have plenty more escorts to choose from and I wish you well.
Anyway.. Enough chatter from me.. I had better get back to those emails!
