It’s a Jungle Out there

There have been times in my life when my dating life has been either so disastrous or so non-existent that I’ve begun to get some serious self-esteem issues. I had a particularly bad run about a year ago, beginning with a few dates that felt luck-lustre and uninspiring. Is it me, or them? I wondered at the time. Unlike our stunning London escorts I’m not blessed with great looks, but generally try to make the best of myself. After the failed dates I embarked on a mission to improve my looks, and went on quite a drive to work out more, get a trendier haircut and buy some new clothes.

If it hadn’t been for a twist of fate I fear I may have still been on the dating scrap heap to this day.
