Since splitting up with my husband about 2 years ago. I've been so busy with juggling my work and family life that I feel I have neglected my social life. I have missed the intimacy and excitement of dating and because of my busy schedule and age I feel uncomfortable going out to bars and meeting new people. I read in a magazine about male escorts and its left me curious, but I would have no idea where to start and have been to nervous to take the plunge as I don't know anyone who has tried one. Has anyone been on a date with one? what was it like? any recommendations? fblush

What's making you sway towards hiring a sex worker instead of just regular dating? We have this thing called online dating, in case you missed it 😉 Plenty of hookup sites if you just want a casual arrangement!

Why pay for it when you can get it for free? Unless you like the idea of paying for it that is?

for me its not all about the physical side its just as much the companionship and company. I don't mix in social circles with too many men and all the men at work seem to be married.

Have you looked at meetup.com there are so many different interest groups, some just for singles and dating others for walking dining and a host of other stuff, I've recently joined a few.

Thanks I will definitely check it out! Have you been on any dates yet?

do you understand the word 'escort' in an old fashioned way, OP? It's really men who charge for sex, though it can be just gong to a dance/dinner with you - all paid for by you. Why would you want that when online dating can provide both without you paying his share, and much more choice of men too if it's casual. I can sort of see it, if it's a 'guarantee' you are after, that he will do what you want?

If you hire a prostitute, you're never going to know whether he genuinely likes you and your company, whether he really finds your jokes funny or your stories entertaining, or whether he's just playing along because you're paying him.

I think you should look for a FWB arrangement. If you put up a profile on any dating or hookup site and say you're looking for a FWB arrangement, you'll be inundated with replies.
