The Girlfriend Experience

There was a film entitled “The Girlfriend Experience” that debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last week that is creating quite a buzz. The premise of the film is basically about a “working girl” who charges $2,000 an hour to act as a client’s girlfriend for the night, providing more intimacy than just physical intimacy.

This week Oprah interviewed a young lady who worked at a brothel in Nevada. She also said that many clients are return customers whom she has an ongoing connection to. They  basically pay for “the girlfriend experience” and seek her out to provide the experience of having a relationship. What do think about men or women that pay for emotional intimacy? Is it just another commodity or are these people fooling themselves?

I am not interested in becoming a working girl, don’t worry! I just started thinking about how some single men date women to get the girlfriend experience without the expectations, commitment, or exclusivity. Now I know there are men that are interested in forming good relationships. It can be difficult figuring out who these men are, but usually time reveals all.

Ladies, do you ever meet men who want “the girlfriend experience” instead of a REAL committed relationship? I’m talking about the men that jockey for your time, attention, and all the perks that come with being their official woman. Yet avoid any discussions about commitment or going to the next level. What do you do? Do you move on? Do you let them know that they are expecting the girlfriend experience?

Guys, do you meet and date women and desire to get “the girlfriend experience” without an actual relationship? Is this usually a sign of committment phobia? Have you ever dated women who wanted “the boyfriend experience” without being in a relationship with you? How did you handle it?

Happy Friday!

Third- you know the rules in advance. Now if you choose to play you are already aware of the outcome of the game. So play fair and nice. If you don’t like the game.. don’t try to change the rules..Pick a new game. Might I suggest Cranium?

Hey Ya’ll……………………I couldn’t help but to post! I usuallu try to give her the benefit of the doubt, but I can’t today…..

BEAUTIFUL is one-contradictory, talking-out-the-side-of her neck, CRAZY HEFFA! Girl, I swear you say some off-the-wall stuff that just don’t make no sense! You always be talking about how you want to married again yet you say there is nothing wrong with MEN today and then you just advised a girl to stay in a relationship that ain’t going nowhere until it ends in 6 months- WHAT??????????????????????????????? I JUST GIVE UP!!!!

Third…if you gotta ask you already know. Why would you label your moniker as confusing? He seems like he’s stated his position. Actually, I can actually respect your person you’re seeing for not stringing you along. If you feel you’ve invested feelings and what not, can’t change that now….move on. If you continue to oblige and provide “girlfriend services”, it’s on you. No matter how much you continue to be at his beckon call and fulfill girlfriend duties…if he don’t wanna he ain’t gonna.

@ Kym, Girl, I am usually an Amaretto Sour person, but hell I’ll take it today!!! Thanks

I couldn’t help it. I have read her in the past and shw just don’t make sense. Some people need to stay single and may be she one of them. She make some off-base comments, just like she grabbed them out of the clouds, and then she tries to debate people like she makes sense!

Lord, forgive me for name callin’, I just couldn’t hold my mule!!!!!

Raqi Just got out of another meeting. The thing with the yellow vs. red flashing lights is, usually, the street flashing yellow is a busier street and the flashing red is the side street. It makes no sense for that to be a 4-way stop. The guy on the red side can’t go until they know it’s clear. On the other hand, the yellow is to proceed with caution, so no one should go speeding down the street.

Imagine if there was a flashing light at Peachtree (busy street) and Pine – you have a car that approaches Pine every 30 seconds with one approaching Peachtree every 5 seconds. Peachtree would be backed up from 5 Points to doggone Buckhead at that stop. Add in the folks on Peachtree that stop even when there are no cars coming on Pine and it’s a freaking MESS!

hate that an accident had to occur though…

I have enjoyed reading you all trying to figure out why it is so difficult to give a significant woman in their life the appropriate title. I can’t figure it out, either. If a woman does all the things that are typial girlfriend behaviors, then give her the title she deserves. I can dig honesty up front though. If you don’t want a girlfriend or wife, just say it and make sure we are both on the same page as to “what we are”.

……..sneaking back off before IT catch me blogging again…..Good Day Folks!
