  • I know you mention you don't spend your money on dumb stuff, but could you be spending your money beyond your means? (and not realizing it) I mean look at what kind of cell phone you have and car, cable, I mean it could be what you own maybe you'll have to down grade on something. If no to the above then you'll have to maybe get a third job...J/J.

    Just ask yourself do I really need this up grade stuff for now no...atleast until you get to where you want to be financially. GL

  • This sounds like a kid to me. Uses all caps for the question and lower case "i's". 2 jobs, school, can't pay the bills and wants approval to be a hooker. Hmmmm. When my son was an infant and I couldn't make ends meet with minimal child support and my full time job...I got more jobs till I got the bills paid.

    Being a hooker is not acceptable. Selling yourself as an escort is dumb and using the term escort doesn't make it sound more respectable. It's the same thing as a stripper, just titled differently.

    But then again if you've given it this much thought then you're probably well on your way. Good Luck.

  • It will come back to bite you in the tushy. My advice is to stay away from "easy money". Do you really want your kids to know mom was a hooker or stripper? They will evidentually. How will you feel when your teenage son's friend asks you for a $25.00 extra? Hmm, think it through honey. I would rather work my a** off and make my kids proud that mom got through tough times.

  • Oh... I dunno... I've known lots of adults in their 40s who didn't understand capitalization, and some who float dumb ideas like this across total stranger for the fun of their reactions. Some of them even actually do the silly things they think of, because talking doesn't get enough response.

    Someone once said that all wages are prostitution -- a way of exploiting time, talents and bodies in exchange for cash. I think there are a number of conventional jobs that are much more soul-destroying than getting paid for sex.

    Of course, then there is the rational witness that lives in my head: someone who is online (am I thinkin' this is posted from a library terminal, gee, no), apparently with a computer fast enough to load the complex pages I see here...hmmm... Not so much 'can't make ends meet' as 'unrealistic expecations of lifestyle vs. income.'

    Phones are not necessities. Nor is the internet. Really, really.

  • I would recommend you NOT do that. Not a good idea, probably lead to worse things that will cost more money. Can I recommend an at home biz, something that will be a wonderful thing monetarily in future so way better for your kids and your future than what you are thinking about doing. The comp I work with has just recently won an award from the BBB so it is no scam! If interested, you can visit my website at or email me at I would love to talk to you and get you more information! Thanks

  • First off... As an escourt you make the rules. Because you are not legally allowed to sell sex, you can't be made to do it. However that means that you earn less money and will be wanted on less dates. But there are men out there that need a date for things and are willing pay for it.. What about exotic dance instead though? You will earn much more money than with escourt and won't be expected to break the law. I did it when I was young, loved it! Now, I'm fat, they would pay me to stay dressed.

  • However I would have to say that as a mom with two jobs and school too, I'm not sure where you will get the time to do either. Look in to some businesses, that would be my advice. There are many that will let you earn between $300 and $500 per party and a party only takes a few hours. OR you could do like I do...  Make money with Freebies...

    You could also check out some other businesses at my website. They will all allow you to work on your time and around your life. In fact just being out and about with jobs and school will help you build a great business...

  • Have you cut back as much on expenses as you can? Don’t buy paper towels or napkins. Make at least some of your own cleaning supplies (this has the added advantage of getting toxins out of your home). Past the age of 2,the only beverage humans need is water; don't buy juice, milk, soda, etc., except as a special treat. Cook from scratch. Replace meat with beans, seitan, lentils & tofu. Once or twice a week have breakfast for dinner: yogurt with frozen blueberries & whole grain cereal or an omelet with veggies & a little bit of cheese with whole grain toast.
