Reviews are a complicated matter. Although, to date, all of mine have been glowing and kind, please don’t take previous interactions as set-lists or menus for how our time will or should be spent. Every encounter is different and special. Seriously!
If you feel compelled to write one, I have a few minor requests, just to make things smoother for me:
1. I ask that you forward your review along to me, so that I can know about it before the internet at large does. Most review sites don’t tell you that new information has been posted and I always like to know when I’m receiving compliments.
2. I ask that you do not go into gory detail about how we’ve spent our time. I don’t want anyone to be confused about things between us, and sometimes these details can muddy our next good time. Besides, the best stuff is just for you and me. Not for people spending endless hours reading review sites.
3. Be honest. I would always prefer you write nothing instead of a long and gratuitous flattery – keep your thoughts genuine and say what you really thought during our time together.
Please though, don’t feel obligated to review me afterwards. I’m not a product, this isn’t Yelp, and I’m just as happy to keep our secrets secret. That makes me feel more special than any review ever could.
