It doesn’t matter which industry you are in, it is usually very hard to achieve a work- life balance. When you are in the escort industry it becomes even harder. Most gay men find it hard to tell their partners that they keep other men company as escorts and some stop dating altogether. Being with other men makes it hard for some to be intimate with another person. When dating, some men find it weird that you can actually be an escort and also maintain a healthy relationship, while others find it interesting.
Some can’t handle dating a male escort while others date just because they think escorts have new ideas when it comes to dating and sex. With the right person and the right attitude it is possible to have a good relationship. One has to be open and honest from the start though it becomes hard at times since most people are judgmental. Sometimes people forget that escorts are real people with feelings.
It is good however to get to know someone for about three months while asking them a few questions to know how they will react when you finally tell them the truth. There is need to do this since there is a lot of discrimination surrounding the industry and this can be destructive. If a person loves you though, they will understand that your job does not define you and if they cannot accept it then they are not meant for you.
It is very necessary to tell the other person if you sense that the relationship is becoming serious. There are a few gay escort support groups and sites for gay escorts that support healthy supportive relationships. There are partners who are supportive from the beginning. There are people who have very limited knowledge about the industry and they may go through a range of emotions once you tell them. Most people think that male escorts engage in prostitution mostly based on what they have heard from the media, though there are sites such as mintboys.com which mostly provides escorts mostly for companionship purposes.
Most gay escorts find that being in a relationship with another escort is way better since they understand what you do. They are more comfortable with each other and they can talk about everything. Some escorts can be naïve when trying to find a partner and when they do find one, they to put up with so much so as to keep the relationship.
People make a lot of assumptions about dating an escort. They expect low self-worth, diseases and drugs of which this is not true. Most escorts also have to deal with their partners being overly jealous. The best thing to do in such a situations is to address the situation immediately and not dismiss them. Talk to your partner and assure them that your relationship is special and cannot be compared to the company you keep. Do this without blaming your partner or resenting them. It is possible to date as a gay escort but you need to reassure your partner and also be open about what you do.
