I began escorting back in 2006, yet I still see a great many of my clients who I met at the same time. Over the years, we have developed friendships of varying degrees with most of them. Each person is unique of course. On a rare occasion, I meet a client who prefers to keep things strictly business and that's fine too.

But it's not the norm. Most of my clients seem to enjoy hanging out and chatting with me almost as much as the other fun stuff we do when we're together. While some only engage in small talk and then want to move on to more intimate time, others regularly talk and catch up with me for an hour or longer before we switch gears.

In fact, one of the best friends I have ever been lucky enough to meet was originally a client. When he had to move out of state, I missed him a great deal and ended up flying all the way to New Mexico to see him more than once.

There are some things I have realized since I started out in this business that are important to keep in mind when it comes to being friends with your clients, so I want to take a moment to share those with other ladies who might find them helpful.

The reason this matters is that if you're not careful, you can unintentionally create lots of drama for yourself and for your client if things get carried away or misunderstandings occur between the two of you. Let's be honest here – you do share a relationship with each client, in some form or another. It's all too easy for emotions to develop and expressing them is only natural, whether appropriate or not.

Even as a professional who is paid for their time and company, there is a right and wrong way to handle these situations. This is part of human nature, so don't think of your clients as any different than other people who have experienced intense emotions for you in your personal life. It shouldn't come as a surprise if you have a client or two who begins to develop feelings for you after getting to know each other for a while.

So above all else, this is my advice. The best way to avoid any complications with your clients is to only spend time with them when they call you to book a meeting. In my experience, it doesn't matter if you spend a couple hours socializing with them “off the clock” BEFORE or AFTER your encounter, but when you start to spend time with them off the clock at other times, things get messy very fast.

It's not difficult to see why either. When you are suddenly spending time together that is not “professional,” it sends mixed signals and gives clients who like you and care for you a confusing message that many will not know what to make of.

By limiting your friendship to the times when they contact you to book your time, things remain much more clearly defined and you shouldn't have to worry about any clients getting the wrong impression or developing deeper feelings than you will reciprocate.
