Professional Cuddler

Post by ManchVegas » Wed Jul 11, 2018 4:33 pm

So, I'm trying to think of appropriate job opportunities in my diminished capacity. I'm not completely unemployable. I could, for example, sit on my sofa and stuff envelopes or do data entry from my home computer. A friend mentioned professional cuddler as a possibility. But truth be told would you want to be cuddled by me? I'm an overweight 50+ gay white male with salt and pepper hair.

So, I dunno. Is this a career path worth pursuing? I've heard you can make some serious coin!

Maybe women who want a cuddle from a man but also want assurance that you won't pop a boner. Advertise the gayness upfront.

You could also look for call center jobs. All you have to do is talk and type. Some pay pretty well.

The best cuddler is my cat. She should be paid . She shows enthusiasm and can work long hours.

well, Annotated, it doesnt surprise me that the concept of being held for any reason other than that to stick your dick into someone is totally foreign to you.

Waldo. That would be the logical thing but I don't have the money. I've already been to 6 labs test and 2 doctors visits and it's cost me over $300.00 even with insurance.

Maybe try a FREE HUGs sign in the park and see if you get any nibbles before attempting to turn pro.

Offering free hugs in the park could get you in trouble with union huggers, you don’t want that.

Otherwise, welcome back Manch. Sorry to hear about your health, hope you hear more about it.

I actually have a sweet story to add here.

One of my guests was a Chinese born adoptee. She was a little slow mentally. She didn't understand that it's not OK to just walk upstairs and talk to me but she did anyway. She was so cute. She's like "I'm from China but was adopted by an American family." I said "I'm adopted too". She couldn't believe it. I explained that anyone can be adopted not just Chinese people. She explained that she thought she was a disapointment to her family because kids from China have an expectation of being highly intelligent etc. She started crying and I said "It's OK sweetie, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed either but our parents still love us!" and the two of us just hugged and cried for 5 minutes. It was a very surreal situation.

Become a gay dominatrix Manch. I recently met a dominatrix and she makes tons of money.

Wow. I love this story. I'm glad you didn't charge her for that though.
She is a great-kneed person.

No. It was a very tender moment though. I wasn't expecting it. At first I was upset that she was invading my personal living space and next I'm hugging a complete stranger and crying.

Did you know that there is a "99" like a "69". When two guys are in spooning position but fucking. I had no idea.

What's the difference between a 99 and a 66?

I have a friend who graduated high school in 1969. For the class reunion they had shirts that said "69 is so fine" She wore it work it was told it was not workplace appropriate. Do you think that's legit?

Speaking of call center jobs, this one just came across my FB feed. (Probably because it knows I read this thread.) Worth a look, Manch?

I guess a 66 would be the same. I saw the 99 on the Canadian comedy show "Letter Kenny". I can't understand half of what they say but I find it funny.

99 is for gay guys.

Lol. A trip to the Nines will never be the same. https://www.99restaurants.com/

Thanks DIana. So nice of you. That job would be ideal for me. My current problem is that I don't know what I'm capable of. Could I sit for 8 hours? 4 hours? One of the problems with RA (If that's indeed what I have) is that you have discomfort and fatigue. It's so puzzling. I can see why people might look at me and say "He just doen't want to work". I'm fine sitting here right now but when I get up I'm going to take a shower and get to the bank to discuss a payment holiday on my mortgage. When I get back I'll be down for the count. It's so frustrating because I'm usually so high energy.
