Ever felt like quitting?

45 posts in this topic

Ok, I've made it thru 27 grueling days of this month and with just a few more days left I am coming close to just dumping this shit!

Its so slow. Like, Im not even working right now. Does anyone know what its like to have the work phone sit here collecting dust (and a bill) without getting any calls? I'm doubting myself, my location, everything right now. I just want to throw in the towel even though I like it enough for what it is.

I've even lowered my rate...something that I haven't done since last June, to see if things would pick up. And it doesn't help to hear and see others doing seemingly well (more power to them) and me just wondering why nothing's going on.

Is there anything that can be done? I'm in school so that sorta takes my mind away from it, but I also have tons of things to take care that aren't and thats just frustrating enough!

Punternet is not for male prostitutes.

You have to go to a gay site.

Ask the ladies who go to SAAFE.

He's extremely well known there

Although I am happy to frolic on SAAFE I fail to see how that is any of your business. This is not SAAFE and it should be irrelevant what goes on other forums. Joey wrote a non gender specific post, does not advertise on here nor shows a website link and just participates in the general forum. Plus this member is still in a probationary stage and if the mods were happy to approve this post than it isn't up to you. Isn't there any other Courtesan website you can hyperventilate over and moan about instead?

As to the OP - I have not reached a stage ever where I would consider quitting and hanging up my lucky panties. I take regular floozy sabbaticals and focus less on day by day, weekly or monthly income but like any organised self employed wench - track earnings more long term and make provisions for slower times as they are offset by boom periods.

It's as much the business of a forum member here as it is Saafe members discussing with Joey the merits of him posting here.

NO-WHERE! In the rules does it state that Male service providers are NOT welcome here or Can NOT join the discussions on this board.

Your Prejudice is showing Matium.

P.N RULES...

* Off-topic posts - this includes but is not limited to:

o Male service providers, including TV/TS

o Swingers/dogging

o The street scene

* Creating more than one user ID per person

* Solicitation by prostitutes or their agents - this includes posting web page links and posting adverts thinly disguised as enquiries.

* Commercial spam

* Personal attacks/slagging off other users

* Posting or requesting information about underage sexworkers or any other illegal activity

* Anything that could be construed as threatening or advocating violence toward any person

* Linking external graphics into messages

* Posting messages in all caps

* Posting worthless messages which contribute nothing meaningful

* Posting the same message more than once

* Wasting the moderators' time

* Starting a thread with the same topic as an existing thead - READ BEFORE YOU POST!

* Posting private information about, or revealing or speculating on the true identity of, any PunterNet user

Comments, suggestions, complaints, etc. are always welcome - by PM, NOT on the board.

The board rules and management policies are not open for public debate. Posting any messages

about board rules or the board management will result in being put on pre-moderation status and possibly being banned from the board. Basically, if you aren't here to talk about adult services with other hobbyists, then go somewhere else!

He's still a probationary member, so if his post made it this far, it's not for you to say whether he should post or not.

January has been fairly quiet for me as well. I've had one outcall this month.

To be fair, it's ok for me because I tour regularly and the outcalls are just a bonus.

I have heard of a few girls in the last year who've got themselves a part time job. It's the recession I suppose.

Anyone else remember PaoloR? :) A regular poster on the old board, and a male prostitute.

And there was also rentboy, who offered many interesting insights and who I, for one, still miss.

January is often a poor month for most industries and the general public are getting those lovely credit card bills and realising just how much they spent for Christmas!!!

I am sure a couple of weeks of snow did not help things either!!

Yes, I can remember them both especially Rentboy who always seemed to give sensible and insightful opinions.

Yes hun, a lot of us have felt like it at one point or another and most of us at some point take a break, or retire only to come back.

There are various reasons for wanting to quit, and you named but one.

January is a slow month, people have just forked out for xmas, and,or are wanting to get out of the UK for a holiday because the weather here can be dull, and boring.

Tell you a secret, I always find that when I really want the work it doesn't happen for me.

Maybe clients just pick up that vibe from me or maybe I just have those day where the world comes to a standstill and no matter how hard you try to get it going again it doesn't want to spin for you.

We have all experienced "dry spells" and they can become tiresome.

But as the old adage says, the rain has to come sometimes.

I find that positive thinking helps, when I get stuck in a nobody wants to see me, I just tell myself I am young smart and lovely and people like me and want to see me, always works for me.

Things don't just happen you have to make them happen for yourself.

Concentrate on your school work and don't worry about your work. people will see the difference in you.

So hang in there!

Suppose it depends on how much you want to split hairs on this one.

Post ABOUT male service providers are not permitted but it does not say anything about posts FROM male service providers.

I would therefore think that provided the posts are not about escorting in the male world he is covered.:)

The first time he posted, the mods deleted his post and the entire thread.

I'm confused. :)

I would hazard a guess that the balance of the board has changed somewhat since he was last here.

Thanks everyone for the helpful replies (and rebuttles)! I guess I should just forget about January, mark it down and just look to February. Right? Or maybe March when Spring Breaks get here lol.

For a moment I was confused about PN's rules, but I think its a good site overall. Don't we all have issues with a website at one time or another? If I offended anyone, I do take that back. I would just like to post on here about generic, platonic things...not about any particular person in general. Is that fair?

All I wanted to know is if January is as bad as it is as it has been for me.
