All my life I've struggled with my weight and the only diet I've ever had any real success with has been the Atkins diet. In the past 8 months I've managed to gain 25 lbs, so last week I decided it was about damn time to do something about it and went back on Atkins. Unfortunately this time around I'm absolutely exhausted. I don't remember the last time I did this feeling quite so wiped out during the first week. But I did some research and have found that it's perfectly normal and should only last for another week or so before I'm back to having tons of energy. I feel sort of bad that my friends that are coming to visit are going to get this low-energy version of me, but don't want to scrap over a week's worth of 'hard work' just to be a bit more perky.

Stephen asked me what I thought about those escort review sites like bigdoggie.net and theeroticreview.com, and whether or not a gentleman who frequented those sorts of boards would have less of a chance of getting an appointment with me than someone who did not.

At this point, no one is getting appointments, so we'll presume we're talking about how I felt a couple months ago when I was actively making appointments.

As far as I know, I don't have any reviews on either of those boards. I know a client did post a little blurb about me on a forum at thebigdoggie.net, but it wasn't really what could be considered an actual real review by the usual standards. I'm actually rather glad to have not been reviewed on these boards, for I preferred the people I met to not have any preconceived notions about what I'd be like. Sometimes those reviews contain too much information---like very detailed and specific information about what exactly went on during the reviewer's appointment, and that can lead to expectations. The only thing I ever wanted to be expected of me was that my client was going to enjoy himself.

As far as whether or not I'd make an appointment with someone I knew frequented those boards, I don't think was something I would have been able to know, unless of course the propsective client mentioned to me that he spent a lot of time reading reviews. I think if reviews were something that was important to a client, then he wouldn't be trying to make an appointment with me and it wouldn't be my choice to decline to see him, for he'd have already have decided not to see me.
