Worth A Punt?

A Tuesday story for you all.

Last summer I met a very nice Latvian WG. Saw her a number of times. Good times. She went home.

In the meantime we exchanged the odd email.

In February she returned. More good times, this time off the agency books which necessitated a number of early morning meets. A pleasant start to one's working day. She went home.

Since then more emails which more recently have turned towards her forthcoming return which obviously pleases me...

Now, here's the rub: this week's email asked me to book (ie pay for) her flight to London. Note, not for cash for the flight but actually to book it with a promise of repayment when she's here (repaid *how* hasn't been specified). Cost of flight ~£160.

I've got a reasonable idea what I'm going to do but wondered what the assembled masses on punternet think.

Over to you.

Book the flight and meet her at the airport, maybe book a room at the airport too ;)

Good advice from Ray. Also, you seem to have a good relationship with her and £160 is not an extortionate amount of money to lose if you do like/care for her . . . :)

Ah, forgot to say: she did ask that I meet her at the airport.

Thanks for the opinions so far...

She sounds a nice regular escort for you, always recommended mid-long term. You're on good terms, so £160 is low risk as long as there is no bait and switch and a long distant latvian auntie doesn't appear in her place. :eek:

 

It's a tap in to me....just like this one.

Not much to lose, go for it.

I certainly feel it would be worth £160. That's around the price of an hour with some ladies. If you can afford to punt then my guess is that you can afford to let £160 go missing, even if only once.

 

I would buy the ticket and enjoy meeting her at the airport.

Considering you've seen her many times, you'll have at least some idea of her personality by now, so I suspect you already have your answer...

As the others have said, £160 isn't likely to break the bank and could reap greater rewards when you get together..... If it was me and I knew and liked the girl I'd do it.

Hope it works out :)

Agreed, £160 is well worth the risk - do keep us posted.

I am going to disagree with you lot.

 

I think it was cheeky of her to ask the OP to buy her flight ticket.  

 

A couple of years ago I visited another city to see a regular client who left my area and just could not manage the time to travel up to see me.

He contacted me and asked that if he paid my hotel bill would I consider a longish booking with him ( out calls for him were impossible ).  He even suggested I

use the hotel room for any other bookings I could get while there.

 

I agreed and it all went well but on no account would I have asked him to do that for me.

This is probaby an example of two people that get along really well.

 

I'd be more suspicious is she wanted to fly her whole family over @ £1000 and expect his undivided attention on arrival.

Hmmmm I have to agree with Lynne, money is money at the end of the day.  And I very much doubt that she will want to go to a hotel room as soon as she gets off a flight just to repay you for the ticket. 

 

Firstly that is very inconsiderate and disrespectful, if you want to maintain a decent "working" relationship with her as a WG then I suggest you decline but if you do pay for it then do not complain when you get nothing in return.

I'm with Skybar1. Normally would be cautious, but it is certainly not a catastrophic amount of money to lose. If you like her, you could have a good thing going. However, I'd be wary of not receiving too many requests of this nature without being repaid - cash or kind:-)

I would just REALLY like to know the outcome, should the OP go for it.

Agreed - seems low risk enough - though you are crossing a line which you may live to regret. Who knows what she will ask next.

Interesting spilt of opinions along gender lines...I admit that I was a bit shocked when she asked.

As you might guess I'm minded to make the booking. As several people said it's basically the price of an hour with her normally and I can afford to take a chance for a bit of added spice in my July. I'm an optimist and I figure that the worst that can happen is that she doesn't arrive and in that case I'll be slightly worse off and she'll be no better off. Life's an adventure, isn't it?

Incidentally, I fully recognise that there's unlikely to be any fun times on the day she arrives: it's essentially a full day of travel to London for her and I suspect the last thing she'll want is to be greeted at the arrivals gate by a man with a bunch of roses in one hand and an erection in the other.

I'm reluctant to say exactly when she's coming for obvious reasons but I will keep you posted as and when I have an update.

F.

Just like anyone i do business with but is a complete or virtual stranger my answer would be no chance, and you have a bloody cheek. I would then sever any business i had with them.

I've only been doing this stuff for a few weeks , but I think I've picked up on the basics..........I book a gorgeous girl for 1 hour at £150. In return I'm pretty much guaranteed sex in its' many varieties and guises. At the end, I've got what I want, and she's got what she wants. That's how it works!

 

You pay £160 - for what exactly? The chance to hopefully meet a girl at Gatwick (or wherever) - what a turn-on. And then you might get the chance to shag her that evening (unlikely, as you admit) or just maybe at some time in the future? I really don't understand why you're even considering this when there is so much else on offer - are you in love, or something?

 

What kind of girl is she that she needs a sucker punter to finance a friggin £160 flight to London?

 

I wish you luck, and hope that you're very happy together.

To be honest I would normally say no but the simple fact that they know each other well, have been seeing each other so long and she has asked him to meet her at the airport too, not just pay for the ticket makes me think perhaps she is just a little strapped but wants or needs to come back to the UK so I dont really see the harm in this.

 

It is a cheeky request but its a harmless cheeky request. If she had asked him to send her money so she could buy a ticket it would be a bit dodgy. She hasnt asked him for any money though in the past or to be sent, just for a ticket to get back. 

 

I think the OP should just do it if he can afford it and he may get a rather nice return payment.

If she was looking for a sucker my guess is that she would have already attempted to borrow money as a tester to see if he would actually lend it. The fact that she has said it will be paid back is of course up in the air. Paid back in cash, paid back in services that she would have been giving anyhow as she knows he will book her many times once in the country? Who knows.

 

As you said you have only been in this game a little while. Whilst its good to have a degree of distance and to protect yourself its not good to be so harsh on people. Dont assume everyone in this industry is a money grabbing milching bitch, its really not a healthy attitude and will only lead you down the path of bitterness. People in this industry on both sides are still just people and emotional connections are formed wether romantically or just as friendship, its what happens when people meet sometimes, regardless of the cirmcumstances surrounding their coming together.

 

Saying all that though the OP should still be a little wary, this could be that money tester. If hard cash is then requested at a later date he may need to reevaluate his working freindship with the lady. But at least give her the benefit of the doubt for now as so far she hasnt actually done anything wrong has she?

 

...Or are the naysayes just assuming its a scam because she is Eastern European?

Thanks Chloe, you summed up pretty well my thoughts at this stage. I agree, I'd have to seriously re-evaluate if I got another request, particularly if for cash.

Payday moan asks two good questions though.

1) what do I expect to get for my £160? Simply put, either my money back or payment in kind and I reckon that there's a better than evens chance of that. Also, it should open the possibility of re-establishing a regular working arrangement and, as discussed elsewhere, these in themselves normally require some investment before you find a good new one.

2) am I in love? No, I enjoy her company and the sex and that's it. One of the benefits of my punting experience has been, I believe, a level of self-awareness that allows me to separate lust and the post-punt euphoria from anything more meaningful.

Anyway, I booked the ticket this morning. In the course of that she sent me a copy of her passport so either she's blissfully unaware of the importance of data privacy or it's evidence of a bit of trust both ways.

I'll update in due course.

Well it's done now and time will tell if it was a good decision. Hope it works out for you.

I know a guy who loaned money to a (British) wg twice last hear when she was struggling. Not only did he receive the money back - in cash - when she promised, he was treated to all manner of other nice things by way of a thank you. Ironically he ended up letting her down and upsetting her, but he can be a bit of a tw@t like that sometimes....

Hope it goes well. There's obviously trust and friendship in the relationship and that's worth a lot. I'm just wondering what else you know about her trip though. Where's she going to go / stay on arrival? If she can't afford the fare what's she planning on doing next? I'm not asking for the answers! Just wondering if you're aware

Maybe she's got another client covering the hotel cost's, it happens, nothing wrong with payment in kind as long as both parties are getting what they want.  I often had a client book a hotel for us to use in the evening and saw other clients in the hotel room during the day whilst he was at work, or as in the case of someone that post's here, in the same hotel in his room, whilst my previous client was in the bar having a meeting. 

 

.  Also 'and I know it's not the case here' but if a client wanted me to go to Denmark then he paid the fare and I built a tour round that one booking.

Sometimes it is just enough to show someone you know a bit of kindness without necessarily expecting anything in return. In the context of what your lady does for a living in this country, the fact she sent you her passport may be a sign of both trust and cultural attitude; perhaps we would call it naive but in this country so much of our culture has become about cold and narrow-minded marketplace tradeoffs that we are bound to be suspicious of what may be a simple request in another culture.

Enjoy and report back. :)
