The things POTs say when they’re trying so hard not to pay!
The allowance talk is so uncomfortable for a lot of SBs,
especially those who are just starting out.
When it comes to talking money, many SBs feel awkward or shy; they don’t
want to come off like “gold diggers” or “too hungry for the money” or they
think it is unseemly to discuss the subject to directly. First, please realize that cheap ass salts
are counting on you to feel this way and will use every opportunity to make it
more difficult for you! You need to get
to the point where you can be comfortably and confidently direct about talking
money and to pay very close attention to the vibes and responses you are receiving from the
POT as you do so!
But, the “allowance talk” is never a one-way conversation! The POT is going to respond to you and, if he
is not a serious SD, there are going to be telltale signs based solely on the
language that he uses and the things that he says. Salts and other cheapskates
are pathological when it comes to this and they automatically resort to the
same “maneuvers” every single time! When
you are experienced, it will actually make you laugh (or cringe) when he uses
one of those “patented” lines.
As you start that unavoidable “allowance talk” with a POT,
keep one very important thing in mind:
Remind yourself what you are looking for! You are looking for a SD, a gentleman who
wants the same thing as you – an arrangement that is fair to both sides. A true SD has been down this road before,
and, although he may be a good or tough negotiator, he is not going to try to
negotiate you into a ridiculous deal. A
Salt, on the other hand, is never willing to negotiate anything other than a
ridiculous deal. And, remember this, no
matter how good you are with your game, it is no fun and it is not rewarding to
try to con a con man. That is simply a
waste of time, and you are better off using that time to find someone worth
To aid you in your
quest, I have put together a list of some of the things POTs say when they’re
trying so hard not to pay!
The “Scientist” POT
Arrangements are not science projects and very few POTs are
legit scientists, but, there is a category of POT that wants you to believe
that an allowance must be based on elements in the periodic table. lol So,
if a POT says that he is willing to talk about allowances at some future date,
but first he wants to make sure that there is “chemistry” between the two of
you, he is telling you that he wants to fuck you first and pay you later, maybe. Trust me, there may be “chemistry galore”,
but don’t ever expect to hear from him again, and, if he does put some money in
your hand afterwards, it is going to be an insulting amount.
The “Romantic” POT
I always laugh at the following ploy: A guy on SA says to you: I am really interested in an arrangement that
involves physical intimacy and a deep emotional connection, but when you bring
up allowance, he says, “hey, I don’t want this to feel transactional!” He is trying to guilt you out of asking for
money; he wants you to believe that an arrangement is something other than a
basic “business, but fun, relationship” .
He acts mortified and shocked – shocked I tell you – that you knock him out of his Romantic realm by bringing
up the subject of money! How dare you
tarnish such a Beautiful Thing. The fact
of the matter is that he wants to fuck you silly and then give you a “rose” as
a symbol of his undying feelings. This
guy is no knight in shining armor.
The “Puritan” POT
This loser is a close cousin of the “Romantic” POT. He says that he doesn’t want to give you
money for your time together because that would make you an Escort and him a
John. And, lordy, lordy, he does not
walk to path of perdition! He does not
want to lead you into that Sin! Instead,
he wants to fuck you for hours (more time, by the way, that he could ever get
an escort to spend with his sorry ass) and send you on the way with nothing
more than pure thoughts.
The “Boyfriend” POT
This guy may be the cleverest of the bunch, but don’t be
fooled! He says, “I don’t do allowances,
that is beneath me and you, instead, I like to “spoil” or “pamper you.” He suggests that he wants to treat you like a
“spoiled girlfriend”. He may offer to
take you on “shopping trips” or he may offer to pay “your bills” like your
rent. In other words, he wants to be in
total control of how much he gives you and when and for what reason. The only thing he asks in return is that he
gets to fuck you as often and whenever he wants. Trust me, it is a horrible deal.
The “Doubting” POT
Much like “Doubting Thomas”, this POT is highly suspicious,
at least when it comes to paying money to a SB for companionship. In response to your request for a set
allowance, he responds, “What am I going to get for that much money”, or
“What’s in it for me?” And, when you
think about it, this guy is either clueless or a real piece of shit! A
real SD always knows what he is getting; he NEVER has to ask that
question. So, when you encounter a
Doubting POT, run away; don’t waste your time!
If he truly doesn’t know, why is he even on SA? And why should you be the one to waste your
precious time teaching him?
The “Race Car Driver”
This guy is truly insulting!
He tells you that, before he parts with his “hard earned” cash, he wants
to take you on a “test drive” first.
And, when he says that, he doesn’t mean “go for a quick spin around the
block and return to the dealer”, he means that you will have to spend hours
with him, in bed, and, rest assured, he’s going to be shoving his “gear shift”
into every “gear” he can find! The “test drive” approach is really demeaning, and, if you respond to him with anything other than derision,
shame on you!
The Cautious Shopper knows that he can’t get you in the same
room without paying you money, so he’ll do the next best thing! He insistw that you send him lots of nudes,
lots of times. He will text you
endlessly. He will set up dates and then
cancel them. He wants attention; he
wants to make sure that you will satisfy all of his emotional neediness. In other words, he is a photo collector and a
time waster. Don’t give him a “taste” of
your delicious goods; you’ll be the one with a stomach ache after dealing with
The “Penny Pincher”
This guy is the true Salt.
His first offer will be outrageously low, $100 a meet and each meet
involves at least three hours and two or more “pops”. If you actually waste your time and counter
him with an amount you believe is reasonable, he will “bump” his offer by $50,
add an hour to his time requirement and demand a third “pop” for his
largesse. Or, if he is a little more
“clever”, he will resort to one of the approaches listed above! It never ends with these guys! They are relentless!
not waste your time on guys like this!
You are never going to be successful in transforming these guys into a
good SD (and, believe me, many SBs before you have already tried and
failed!). This is by no means a complete
list! And, if you have encountered a POT
with a different but equally nasty “theme”, please feel free to add to my
Summary: After months of planning and preparation, the five kings finally embark on their quest to the Nether to retrieve Geoff’s soul. At the same time, worlds are beginning to collide as Midas sets about his mission to return from the End.
A developing relationship promises peace between the kingdoms - but when old fears return to haunt them, it threatens to set the kings in conflict with each other once again.
Ray stepped through the portal into the Plains with practiced ease. His stomach no longer lurched at the transition - he moved as easily as if he was stepping into another room rather than travelling thousands of kilometres into an instant.
He emerged into the throne room of the Plains castle just as Gavin arrived through the Wild portal opposite him. Their eyes met as they appeared at the same time, and they shared a smile.
“Hey,” Ray called out, “I wondered when you were gonna come. You know what Geoff wants us here for?”
This Kid Icarus video was a lot of fun to make; since some of the songs require two players to perform properly, it was a new challenge for me to make the music engaging for both players, and creating a video that showed both parts clearly. Hope you enjoy!
