She's pretty fierce. If she doesn't appreciate the gesture then she'll shove the flowers right up my arse. And not because I've requested that in pvt lol
It's why we get on so well I think. She says it as she sees it and I appreciate that both in cam life and real life. I don't want someone to mechanically laugh at my shit jokes. I want someone to tell me that it was a shit joke.

Just out of curiosity what kind of flowers were they?

Hmmm.. from what I have seen online Colombia has an amazing flower industry.
I'm being a bit facetious. There was a fair bit of choice but still largely rose based. A lot of the options were a bit overblown and bombastic on the site I ordered from. I deliberately chose a site that took PayPal because I wanted the privacy that comes with that.

from

The History of the Colombian Flower Industry and Its Influence ...

https://apps.fas.usda.gov


"From its humble beginnings, the cut flower industry in Colombia has developed into a billion dollar industry with around 75 percent of flowers in the United States today originating from this South American country, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs in both Colombia and the United States. 6 Feb 2015"

Not as lost as my flowers. I just discovered that I ordered them to be delivered on a day she isn't working, using a studio phone number which is obsolete and an incomplete address that I can't edit. I've requested a cancellation and reordered with a more reputable looking florist. Of course now I run the risk of looking like a fucking psycho if both bunches turn up.

Successfully managed to cancel the wayward bunch of flowers after hours of asynchronous chat communication with some dude in Dubai. New bunch ordered. So at least I won't look like a psycho now although after the time spent with "Rizwan" on chat this morning I think cashing in my entire pension and sending it to her via Western Union might have been a reasonable alternative after all 😂

TBH if I were in serious financial predicament, not getting paid on time at my job, not able to afford a phone and received flowers from a friend who knew my situation I would just get livid. I can't eat flowers, can't pay my bills with them. They can be nice when I have other things, but when not able to afford what I needed it would feel like someone laughing in my face. These are obviously my feelings, other people might feel differently about that and appreciate the gesture, but for me it's empty and feels like someone doesn't care about my need, my situation and just want to make themselves feel good.

I know you keep repeating "it's not a scam, she's not trying to get my money" and I suppose you want to also avoid somehow suggesting using you for your money would be possible, hence the flowers, but I still think a small amount on a gift card that she could use for something more practical could be a better option.

I kind of get where you are coming from. Organising a gift card was a bit more complex than sending flowers. I don't know where she lives, what stores are near her etc or even how to get such a thing delivered. Also, because I'm sending direct to the studio, I didn't want to send anything that the studio could take and cash in or try and claim their cut of. I mean, yes, they could take the flowers but they would be fairly useless to them. I could have ordered an electronic gift card but I'm pretty sure that the email address she gave me is one created for her by the studio.

I did ask her housemate about the wisdom of sending flowers and her enthusiastic response led me to believe it was a good idea that would be well received. Bear in mind that the housemate works in the same studio and is going through the same problems so hopefully her judgement is sound. If not then I'll apologise and we'll move beyond it. It's certainly not an attempt to make myself feel good. After all of the issues with cancelling and re-ordering, as well as now sitting here all day wondering whether they will be delivered and what the response will be, I can probably think of better ways to make myself feel better.

I think it's probably safe to say that if I was applying to go on a TV quiz show, "Sending gifts to cam models on the other side of the globe" probably wouldn't be my specialist subject. Completely out of my depth with this one in terms of both the emotional rights and wrongs and the logistical challenges. Definitely an impulse decision.

Please do. I mean she chose to share her studio's address, so that part is a bit confusing, and I'm not 100% sure how to read that. I'm gonna catch up with your initial thread later today, so I have a more complete picture here :)
So the flowers have been delivered. I'm sure I'll very soon find out whether they've cheered her up or whether I'm about to get both barrels......

The thought behind it and the intention is nice. Do you know if the studio payment stuff has been sorted yet? If that has, and flowers arrive, I imagine she'll be stoked. However, I mean stoked as in happy (rather than having the fires of her ardor restoked 🤞).

It wasn't sorted when I last spoke to her on Saturday. I also hope she is happy rather than loved up. I don't think I need to worry about that though. I think we've moved beyond that.

Update:

The flowers went down an absolute storm. She was beaming from ear to ear and very happy. Which was precisely the effect I had hoped for. Various colleagues came in to admire them and she got to be the centre of attention which was really nice to see after the shit week she has been having.

The delivery on the other hand was a catalogue of comedic errors worth repeating here for shits and giggles.

I arrive in her room and start chatting and it's immediately clear that nothing has arrived, despite me being notified of delivery. I then ask her if she received anything and in effect spoil the surprise when she tells me no.

I contact the florist to see who signed for the flowers and they send me a photo of a signature - her real name in ornate handwriting - which I then send to her. She's like, "wait a minute, that's my handwriting but I didn't receive anything".

It was a situation you could not script. She was running late and arrived at the studio at the same exact moment as the flower guy. He thrusts something in front of her to sign, which she does. Because she was running late, she thought she was signing to acknowledge a fine (as if the studio story wasn't bad enough) and rushes on, leaving the guy standing there with the flowers. He then proceeds to hand them to the front desk where she eventually retrieves them long after I've spoiled the surprise. Meanwhile, the florist is starting to panic that the flowers didn't reach her after my enquiry, so they phone her housemates phone to check they have arrived. Chaos.

Perfectly imperfect, which probably just about describes our friendship really.

Sounds like a perfect outcome to me. If it all went smoothly, the memory of the event would fade quicker I think.

A bit of an interesting side note to this. There are a couple of other guys who are sometimes around the room the same time as I am. Often we chat away between ourselves and it's all very cordial. However, with the flowers added into the mix last night, one of the guys was pretty hostile and jealous. Lots of mad shithousery about whether I planned to fly to Colombia (eh NO) and him telling me not to fall in love with her (I'm definitely not although I strongly suspect he has not been so good at listening to his own advice). Of course, then he took her on an extra long private so she scored from his jealousy.

Moral of the story - models should buy themselves a bunch of flowers and place them front and centre of the stream. When a regular comes in, tell him that another regular sent you the flowers. They will literally rush to masturbate themselves to death and empty their credit card to reassert themselves as the alpha male. 😂

OK, so it's been a while since I posted in this thread and it seemed a good time for a timely clusterfuck update.

TLDR - never buy a model flowers :oops:

Basically my good deed backfired on me spectacularly. As a result of buying the flowers, I became a bit of a celebrity in the studio. Everyone asking who bought the flowers. My username was mentioned often in conversation.

Now, on the whole, that shouldn't be a problem but bear with me.....

When I take a model private, I'm not necessarily the most observant when it comes to her surroundings. I'm not looking at the wallpaper, or the lino or the ornaments that are scattered around the room. I'm certainly not thinking "I've seen a little glass buddha like that before in another room". You can probably see where this is going.

Anyway, it turns out that a couple of weeks prior to sending the flowers, I have unwittingly taken another model from the same studio private. I mean, I consciously took her private. I just didn't realise she was from the same studio. So when my username is getting banded around in the communal area of the studio, this model pops up and informs my friend that she's had a private with me not that long ago. Cue spectacular explosion and me being blocked :rofl:. A bit more of a reaction than I anticipated. All sorted now, but clearly a touchy area......

why a model work for a studio?
Theres a lot of reasons a model might choose to work for a studio.

Could be they dont have a space to cam from, or dont have the equipment. Better studios will offer training on how to maximize their earnings and provide performance reviews, going back over the show recording and pointing out things where they missed opportunities etc.

Some of the bigger studios have deals in place with some sites for better placement for their models and do their own marketing to promote those models.

Some people need the structure a studio provides to stick to a schedule. Or want to be around other people during the day.

While studios take a large % of the models earnings, if the studio is doing it's job well the % they take should end up being less than the difference in earnings if the model was working from home.

why a model work for a studio?
In some situations, especially where a family shares a residence, it's just not possible for a model to get privacy to work from their home.
Where there are language obstacles, studios can employ people to manage the chat for a model and take directions during a private.
Studios often pay employees in cash, which can be preferrable to other payout methods that involve bank accounts and transaction records.
In countries where this industry is not strictly legal, some studio owners have made arrangements that mean they are not troubled by law enforcement, so their models don't take on a personal risk that an independent would.
Also for the reasons noted in previous replies.
