An open letter to My Favorite Obsession
I am writing this for a number of reasons. First, after reading a few threads regarding the negative impact of SP's on people's lives I thought I would share a positive one. Second, I want the SP to know what she did for me and how she had a positive impact on me. Third, I thought it would be good therapy for me to let it out into the open.
After a six year relationship came to an end I found myself on the road to self destruction. I immersed myself in work, shut out family and friends, and starting drinking alone - something I have never done in the past. A few of my co-workers saw this downward spiral and wanted to do something to try to help. They decided to arrange to have an escort sent to my hotel room. This was back at the end of June. I really had a good time with the girl that was sent over. She was intelligent, attractive, killer body, and she said all of the right things. Needless to say, she was just what the doctor ordered.
I saw her several more times afterwards. Everytime was better for me than the previous. We talked about many things, never getting too personal, which was fine by me. She told me some things about herself, things that she did, or wants to do. I always listened so intently to what she was saying. It was always so interesting
Over the last few weeks I found myself thinking back about the conversations that we had. This got me to do some soul searching and to admit some things to myself, and most importantly, make some decisions that would have a positive effect. First, I stopped the drinking alone. I am not an alcoholic, but was afraid that I could easily become one. I do have drinks when out with friends or co workers, but not in excess. I took a good look at myself and decided to make some changes. As of today I am down 17lbs. and friends and family are once again a part of my life.
This may not seem to be important to many of you, but I feel that this young lady, who I will refer to as My Favorite Obsession (a name I gave her), had a very big impact on me when I was at a crossroads. I got out of my predicament no worse for wear, and I would just like her to know how grateful I am, and that she will always have a special place in my heart.
My Favorite Obsession Thank you so much. I will never forget you!!
You're a model to follow: model of great courage and self determination since you managed on your own to face adversity and bring it to some reality-check. Thumbs up for that!
As for the sps, I truely believe it's like any thing in life -> you've got the amazing great ladies who will make a difference by providing superb companionship (you seem to have met one) and you also have the rotten scam artists ones. As much as I highly respect the first ones and will always be thankful to them, as much as I will always be disgusted and feel repulsion towards the scam artists ones.

Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately, I don't know if the lady I am talking about knows what she did for me. I would like to get the opportunity to thank her face to face, over hot chocolate and cookies.
