Tl;dr

Tl;dr stands for “too long; didn’t read”. It’s internet parlance used when someone wants to make a comment based on a general skimming of the article or the comments attached to an article. Sometimes it works and is acceptable. If you’ve ever read anything online, you know that people do go on a bit.

It’s also very flippant, especially when the commenter is making a statement that is completely inappropriate to the topic discussed or when they want to “troll” or otherwise insert their uneducated $0.02. It shows great disrespect to the author of the writing that you could not take the time to read everything they wrote before making a judgement on said writing.

Those of us professional Companions who live up to the educated, witty, conversational legacy of courtesans and geishas have a particular dislike of tl;dr, which is usually expressed when potential clients contact us with questions or statements that show very obviously that they did not: 1) Read what we wrote; 2) Understand what we wrote; or 3) All of the above. If a potential client feels that their desired Companion “wrote too much” on her website, well written though it is, then that’s probably not the Companion they should approach. If you’re overwhelmed by her words on the screen you will likely be overwhelmed by her words in person. When we write a lot, it is for a reason. It is not fluff and it shouldn’t be regarded as such. Speaking for myself, there are some definite personality traits that I want to present first and foremost.

When we receive appointment forms where it is clear that the gentleman in question didn’t spend more than 5 minutes on our carefully composed, thought-out, well-written sites, they go into the trash…but not before remembering the name for any possible future encounters.

So, do yourself a favor potential clients: if you aren’t the type that likes to spend time reading or getting to know a Companion through her site and her blog, don’t approach her at all, instead of approaching her with ignorance. It’s disrespectful and isn’t the start of a lovely rendezvous.

  1. Brava! Brava! *giving Claudia a standing ovation*

    I think the problem with guys is there’s a big cross-up between their physical interests and their normal direction for a meeting. Some guys see pics, and they’re typing the first thing they want to tell you, hence all the “Man, you’re hot!” emails. Innocently enough, I have an auto-responder for these types that let’s them know that if their response is sub par, they get the chance to try again so we can proceed from there.

    I think it’s disrespectful to contact a lady requesting to meet in the most intimate nature, and not care enough to know what she’s about. Especially when she lays it out there for you.

    Hi Nina!

  2. Thank you, ladies!

    Nina: Ha, yes. “Oh here, let me totally incriminate myself via email.”
    Tiffani: That’s a good idea for that auto-responder. Mine just says that I will be in touch shortly. I should probably edit that a little bit. And that’s probably what happened here and I would have personally responded for him to fill out all the information if: 1) He wasn’t 14 years under my minimum requirement for clients; and 2) Didn’t request an appointment for 3 hours less than my minimum for travel. In addition to the other clues that he didn’t read anything on his screen. It just wasn’t worth the time to point this out so ‘delete’.
