When I look at normal girls I think " I wonder how much it would take to get them into bed" - that is not healthy either. Don't like myself for that.
This is pretty much the only reason why I'd give up punting. I'm half way now between relocating to London, and there's an abundance of single women here. The city is also awash with escorts. When I first started punting it was such an easy, time saving solution; You pay your moneys, have sex, leave. That's about the same cost as a date I'd say to myself. Well not really. A date doesn't always cost that much and you spend far more time having sex with the girl, who as it happens WANTS to sleep with you. That difference alone means civvie sex wins hands down.
What's even more damning is I'm in my early 30's, single with no kids and I work out regularly so I'm in good shape. I'm also not hideous looking either. All that means is I have no excuse and really see punting as a lazy alternative to sorting myself out and doing what all of my work colleagues do, go out and date women and have memorable experiences. All of my punting expeditions are book ended by the same pathetic AW/internet search, booking her, paying, sex and then leaving knowing that she simply couldn't have cared less about the experience. Sure that was awesome once, but as a lifestyle choice it's pretty corrosive.
I understand it's different for people who are in long term relationships with kids and need a break from the cycle of banality that is commitment. But it's for that reason I think single guys often sell themselves short. Rather than pay for it all the time how about getting yourself in shape, learning new things and developing your personality, and then get out there are meet women. In civvy life the worst outcome is getting turned down by a girl or perhaps not having anything in common with someone. In punting life you're potentially paying for a trafficked girl who views the entire experience as some sort of sexual assault. How strange that some of us would prefer to pay and cause misery rather than risk being deflated after a knock back in a bar or not being asked out again on a second date. It's all a little warped!
But...then I pop onto AW and see a Polish girl with a perfect ass...
