What It’s Like To Lead A Secret Life As A Social Escort In Singapore

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.”

sg girlMelissa 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.

Working A Social Escort Job In Singapore – Are You Up To It?

A lot of women in Singapore consider taking up a social escort job on the sideline, however, not all of them are suited to be an escort in Singapore. If you are a woman also considering a social escort job, then read on to find out if you suit it at all, and whether you can apply!

Just like any other job in Singapore or otherwise, there will always be upsides and downsides. The obvious upside when it comes to escort jobs is the sheer amount of money you can make. In general for SG social escorts, working just a few days a week, for an hour appointment a day will potentially make you $2000 to $5000 a month. If you have a day job, that is additional income that will supplement your base income. If you are a student, you probably make more than nearly all starting graduates – considering how doctors and lawyers make less than $4000 per month after CPF and taxes deduction. The best part about a part time social escort job is that you do not even need to quit your school or job to do this. You can do it part and time and make a total of nearly double any of your peers in gross monthly income. Although you need to pay taxes on your income derived from this job, you do not need to contribute mandatory contributions to CPF ordinary or special account from your cash earnings from being an escort. This is because you are considered self employed (this is accurate as of 2018 at the point of this writing). Of course, keep in mind that the more available you are, and the less preference for the type of clients (e.g. race or age) the more money you can make.

If being flirty is not up your aisle of competences, then you do not even need to consider applying for an escort job in Singapore. Why would a man hire a woman to sit across him, and not even flirt? If even basic things like holding hands or hugging will make you irk, please do not apply. It will only end in absolute disaster and a complete waste of time for you. Men hire an escort to be a companion who is willing to flirt and keep him company and make him feel as though you are his girlfriend during the period of engagement. Why else would he pay you so much to sit across him like a prude nun?

Also, it is true that some clients are absolute gentlemen, while some are not so gentlemanly. This is part of the job – just like how some customers are very patient at a busy restaurant, while others bang the table, make a din and yell and scold the waitresses and waiters. As long as you have any kind of customer experience, and not be fazed by these clients, then you may consider having a social escort job.

If you are friendly, relaxed and flirty, and not so uptight about everything, then chances are you will do well as an escort. Also, it is highly recommended that you research online more about escort work BEFORE deciding whether you are suited to become one. If you truly are, then apply and prepare for the money to roll in.
