This might sound weird guys but it's what led me curious about what the word courteous meant? I was talking to a psychic on the phone and she was telling me that a chance meeting was getting ready to happen in my life with a man and he would be the love of my life, she said she couldn't give me more detail all she could tell me was that... HINT: It would be a "Long- Lost Courtesan." What in the world does that mean, what is a courtesan and what kind of man would that be? Does anybody know???

A courtesan was originally a female courtier, which means a person who attends the court of a monarch or other powerful person. Today a Mistress to a wealthy person:-)

In kingdoms past, they were women, who plied sexual favors, to the kings court. For a price of some sort, no doubt.

A Courtesan was a woman...of loose moral fibre...a hanger-on at the courts...some say they were prostitutes...some say they were the most highly paid of mistresses.

ewww that doesn't sound right then what the psychic told me.... why would i want to have a chance meeting with a Courtesan and i thought she said it was a man???

Best Answer

Since she said it was a "long-lost" Courtesan....and since Courtesans have not really been around for hundreds of years...perhaps she is trying to go for the reincarnation angle.

A mistress.

Best Answer

A female member of a court. Monarchs surrounded themselves by favoured nobility who got the most political influence, favours, and say in the workings of the kingdom.

lol wait I'm confused she said it was supposed to be a man?

Best Answer

They're women to my understanding. Oh, also the term also came to mean a prostitute with very wealthy clientele. But in either case it's a female term.

I could be wrong though, but I'm not gonna spend five minutes googling this. Go forth and google!
