I tend to find that those who quit properly don't usually make a song and dance about it. They either just go, or at most leave a single message on a forum saying why and that's it.



Spot on
Here for a short time for a good time

Enjoy your break and more importantly your wedding, I hope you have a good day weather wise.

No, they don't become more interesting but a raised profile always helps with marketing :-)

Good luck with the wedding arrangements for you both, but more importantly where is the honeymoon ?
I live for the nights that I can't remember / with the people that I can't forget

Quitting is like suicide. Those who want to do it, do it quietly and without fuss. The rest are simply looking for attention! Good luck on your wedding, hope you have lots of fun!




Oooh well, that's a bit horrible....  I leave this industry end of this year and I certainly don't intend is to be a pseudo-suicide.  Very much enjoyed my time, but it is now time to to leave.
Good luck on your wedding Chrissie, I imagine you will look gorgeous!

Not really, it's a metaphor, and you perfectly illustrate it - in a good way - you are quitting, you know it, you (presumably) won't need to make a huge fuss about it then return after 3 days with "bargin" rates.

Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

Thanks all

Its interesting to hear that for most of you the "scare" tactic doesn't work. Perhaps some repeat offenders who have no intention of leaving the industry will have spotted this and realised that its not actually the best marketing in the world.

It wont be too bad if the weather is shockingly awful, I'm not really used to wearing dresses that resemble duvets in terms of warmth so wont mind it being a bit breezy!

Rory hates hot weather and you would need to knock me out to get me on a plane so we are only going a few hours up North and living in a posh holiday home for the week. Can't beat beautiful surroundings and nice food, plus it has a swimming pool and tennis court ;-)

I'd be more scared if you announced plans to shoot clothed only. 

Just waiting for the dog collar and I'll see you at the wedding.   

If I don't see you before then, have a fantastic wedding day, and an even better marriage. cheeky

Well I have been offline since November! Done profile update now as few things have changed.

A lot can happen in 4 months I have been concentrating on my "real job" and Wedding Planning (like you just for 2015!). Unfortunately I didn't get my promotion but hey ho I am waiting to find out about a role which will allow me to travel a little more

I just went offline quietly. The work wasn't very forthcoming and I was so busy I never got chance to go online.

I think people do it for attention to get people to say "please don't leave"

Good luck with the Wedding!
Hazel - Contact me for any photoshoots you want to do if your interested

I decided to leave the industry a couple of years ago due to personal reasons
I put out the castings saying I was leaving simply to let anyone who hadn't already booked me and might have wanted to the opportunity to get in touch before I left
I messaged some photographers personally to let them know but put out a casting incase there were photographers out there who wanted to book
It was a genuine resignation at the time however after a couple of months I had a similar situation to Hazel who commented above and came back to the job I love

Im now only modelling 1 or 2 day a week as I have other commitments and rather than "quit" im jsut limiting my shoots as situations do change. I didnt do it to get more bookings but I didn't leave forever but I hope people didnt see it as attention seeking!

Congrats on the wedding!
