Q: How seriously should I take compliments given to me by an escort? I don’t want to get a big head, but I don’t want to dismiss the compliment either.
Georgie: This is a similar sort of question to, ‘Is my escort genuine, or are they faking it?’ The truth is that there’s no one answer….escorts are people like anyone else, and the compliments we pay you might be more or less genuine, depending on the situation and how well we’ve connected.
It’s our job to make you feel good … so, for example, I always try to find the things I like about a client and tell them, so that they feel appreciated. This is part of the service, and if you didn’t lie back and enjoy it then you’d be letting yourself down. It’s what you’re paying for!
It doesn’t mean I’m lying, though. I don’t enjoy flattery – it feels fake and uncomfortable.
If you and your escort aren’t getting on as well as you want, or there’s some awkwardness, then you might feel a compliment isn’t meant honestly. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that someone is trying to trick you – often it actually means we care about making you happy, but are feeling a bit awkward and haven’t said the right thing.
Whatever you do, don’t ask. There’s nothing worse than a client saying, ‘Do you REALLY mean that, though?’ It’s a real mood killer.
And anyway, your opinion of yourself is the most important thing…do you think the compliment is realistic? If so, you can feel good about it. If you feel it’s fake, you don’t have to take it to heart, but it’s good manners to say ‘thanks,’ and simply move on.
