London life has a lot to offer. I have lived in London for over fourteen years now. At first I had no clue about what expensive, posh or cheap places were. I am a foreigner I didn’t grow up with the class distinction and an understanding of the accents and posh areas. Having said that I lived everywhere in London and it was always funny when people reacted to each place I lived. For instance, I used to live in Covent Garden, every time I told somebody, they’d look at me thinking how on earth can you live there; and this was pretty much with every place I lived at; Fulham, Victoria, Elephant and Castle, Hampstead and so on. I didn’t understand this obsession with the areas at first but later it made sense.
I used to work for a government office a while back. It came with the job to know the best places in town for my boss. However, my boss was pretty knowledgeable and knew everything. I was so naive then and had to learn what was what. At that time, I didn’t realise that most places ‘house’ ladies who offer their services. I didn’t know that sitting alone at a bar would mean that I can be mistaken for a lady who offer services. Whilst no-one has ever approached me asking me for my services I really used to like sitting at a bar in bar. I only learned that later to never sit at the bar on my own ever again once I discovered some secrets of the ladies who offer their services. Here is, in my naive opinion and based on pure observation and my imagination, a how to guide, to spot a prostitute. This is not a rules book and not to be taken seriously.
A super gorgeous woman is at an expensive bar on her own like a Mandarin Oriental, Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, the Blue bar and many casinos that are open only for members. It might be true she might be waiting for her friend and that friend might be you with lots of money; or she may indeed be waiting for her friend and then ask you for lots of money in exchange for their services. They tend to be easily approachable or they approach you particularly if you play big and win a lot.
Their day job is acting, babysitting or a student. These jobs allows them to be out late at night and have some social life. The women often have expensive clothes on, always have nails done and have expensive shoes and accessories. They are super friendly and will put up with any of your requests; almost like a dream woman. She’ll play with you at a casino table until early hours of the morning and like the most loyal cat be by your side. Only later she’ll ask for your money for the time you spend with her. She will gladly go home with you or to your room with no questions asked. If it feels too good to be true it probably is.
She has two phones — one personal and one for work. You will most likely end up on her work phone because you are her work. However, there’s no way of knowing which phone is which. She’ll make herself available for you at your convenient time. She’ll most likely never say no to you. You have commitments and she can shuffle her schedule just for you. So she’s available pretty much anytime you want/need her. She’s not interested in keeping you as a long term boyfriend; she’s happy to have you for a night services only.
She never calls you. You are the only one who contacts her. Like most working girls, she won’t have enough time to be chasing clients. If she’s any good, she’ll be busy with many men and she might be visiting a couple men a night. She most likely won’t be available for a coffee in the morning as she’ll be tired form working at night.
She only goes to the most expensive places and she’s only a student, actress or a babysitter. How can one afford an expensive place…? She’s often with an expensive cocktail or drinks champagne only.
I don’t think these are the rules to live by and things change all the time. It’s what I have seen in London bars when it was brought to my attention. It’s an interesting subject to contemplate. You may find I am completely wrong and that’s ok. I don’t mind being wrong after all this is all based on an observation and imagination many years ago. However, what I do believe is people want love. Love is the only thing that matters. If in the search of love one stumbles upon something that isn’t, it’s only a lesson.
Love is a tricky thing and it really is hard to tell when someone is a prostitute or not. “No love is entirely without worth, even when the frivolous calls to the frivolous and the base to the base. But it is in the nature of love to discern good, and the best love is in some part at any rate a love of what is good.” Iris Murdoch, The Nice and the Good
