It can be harder than you think
Melissa* has had common interests and hobbies and talked about regular things with some of the men she has met. In fact, she has even had crushes on some of them – including a doctor and a business owner in Singapore. However, Melissa has had to hold her own emotions in rein. Because, these men are Melissa’s social escort clients, and not random men she has bumped into a local bar in Singapore.
Over the last 24 months, Melissa has played the part of a loving and caring girlfriend. However, it has not been easy all the time. “It is easy to play the part of a girlfriend sometimes, because you have a crush on the client. However, it isn’t always easy to not act on the crushes because I need to remain professional. Over time, I have learnt to accept that as part of the job requirement.”
Melissa works under a Singapore escort agency, alongside other local social escort girls. However, she has never met the other colleagues, and neither does she want to. Privacy is a big part of this job and a big concern.
Melissa is 23 this year, and is an fresh graduate in a sales job in Singapore. “I felt like I want more savings and wanted to pursue something interesting. With this job, while it is vastly different and I recommend other girls to do their own research online on the Internet before becoming one, it has been a real eye opening experience and experiencing new, luxurious things that would normally not be available for me.”
Melissa had also considered being a sugar baby, but decided against it after realizing that it can be quite easy to develop real emotions for the sugar daddy. Unfortunately, in some cases, sugar daddies may be married, and she does not want to get emotionally attached to such a sugar daddy. However, with social escort clients, she usually meets each one at most once or twice, and so rarely has the chance for the emotions to truly develop deeply. She prefers the fleeting nature of the relationship so as not to get attached.
Melissa’s clients are mainly made of by business, finance or medical professionals with mid to top level positions. C suite clients are not out of the norm as well. There is a mix between both local Singaporean as well as foreigner clients.
It is however, not without downside. Her double life has translated to missing out on some friends’ and relatives’ birthdays, and many dinner get togethers. But she says the money makes it worth it.
Melissa still currently lives with her Singaporean parents, but they do not know about her double life as a social escort.
“People who know about it, tell me all the time, ‘I keep failing my exams or keep getting scolded by my boss. I think I should just be a social escort!’ as if it was so easy.” What they don’t see is the double life and having little to no social life.
In a nutshell, according to Melissa, it takes a high level of adaptability to do it all, and while still being a great escort companion.
