Hello fellow Merbites!
No, this post is NOT about Pokemon Go!
I am new to the "hobby", having started in the month of May, after YEARS of lurking on the boards.
After seeing my first escort, I felt wonderful: it went better than expected, I really had fun, the anxiety and guilt (ex-Catholic boy here!) of doing such an activity died down.
...The feeling of floating on a little cloud lasted maybe for a week, and then I started to get antsy, restless!
Almost like I started to smoke crack (or insert drug of choice!), and I needed another hit!
So... in a 6 week period, I've seen Sps three times.
Now, I don't know if it' s because hobbying is a wild new frontier for me and I'm a bit overwhelmed (more than probably!), but my thoughts are pretty much occupied by... so, who will be the next one?
...I'm a bit afraid of becoming addicted to this!
And it's getting pretty costly, pretty quick! (I'm not poor... but i'm not rich either: I' ll definitely have to impose myself some limits.)
So what I want to ask you guys is how did it go when you got started "in the field"?
Did you go bonkers for awhile and then it slowly got more manageable... or are you still indulging like crazy?
Anybody had real addiction problems related to this particular field of activity, and (hopefully) overcame them?
Any other relevant observations are welcome!
