Poor Telephone Manner

106 posts in this topic

I appreciate a wg gets many enquiries for details and alot of timewasters etc but how many times have you rang for details and you lose interest straight way . I think to myself well if you can't glam up your profile on the telephone then i ain't coming to see you . Why are some wg quite willing to give details via text and some aren't ?is it thru the volume of pure time wasters ?

I think that the biggest complaint about telephone enquiries from the ladies on here concerns the sheer number of men phoning who haven't bothered to read their lovingly crafted (and usually very informative website or profile). I can see that this would be annoying, especially on the nth such enquiry of the day.

Personally, as a punter, I find that most girls have an excellent telephone manner. Some however are almost monosyllabic when you talk to them and the lack of obvious enthusiasm or interest in me seeing them inevitably leads to me saying thanks but no thanks. It amazes me how this latter group get any business at all, unless it is via people who book exclusively via text or email.

If a WG isnt friendly on the phone when i make an enquiry i dont proceed nowadays, it tells me if she is this bad before i have paid how bad might she be after i have paid. If i am ringing an Establishment i have found most i have had dealings with blatantly lie even though they know i will discover their lie when i turn up, they rely on punters thinking with their dicks and staying to punt anyway. Of course there are honest providers who get my return business while these bad providers are seemingly happy for a one-off, not good business sense but they must get enough punters to continue going i assume.

Some ladies prefer texts, i require a phone chat with all newbies to me and wont punt without one but will text with regulars. Timewasting punters certainly do genuine punters no favours.

I read the ladies site or profile but find so many are wrong or not updated that they are merely a guide so i need phone confirmation to find out if services i require are actually on offer.

Another reason i want to speak to the lady is to gauge her manner, as you say some get round this by insisting on texts or email, they might be literate but it doesnt mean they are friendly. :)

sorry. . . I didn't fully explain myself i'm mainly refering to classified adds such as daily sport etc ,where wording is limited and a more detailed profile is necessary

I used to occasionally have an ad in various papers, and I know I've been included in a few magazines with or without my consent. Where someone has seen me in one of those I will give a quick run-down, but will mention my website since I think that gives a lot more information than a quick phone conversation. I'm afraid however that "Can you give me some details luv" is quite a turn off. I also find it difficult to know where to start with such a question, and quite often such callers will ask if I 'specialise'. To me this is a parlour term and I usually ask if there is anything particular they are looking for, rather than run through a long list of possibilities. I find this actually only invites an embarassed silence - so not quite sure what guys are looking for there! Other opening phrases often used by callers in response to ads in such publications are "How much do you charge?", "When are you open?", "Whats you address?" and even "How many girls have got on today?". I know guys need to ask these questions but when they are barked at you upon picking up the phone, it can get your back up a little.

If someone is nice and polite though, there is no reason to not reciprocate back, and be informative.

RE: text messages and not giving out details - how do you know the person texting isn't some 13yr old school boy whose father/mother isn't about to intercept the exchanges and then call the police ? Many years ago this happened via email - fortunately I hadn't gone into any details but last thing I needed was to be stuck on the sex offenders register.

Phoning non-British ladies can be very useful as it is usually possible to determine their level of competence in English. Since I always like to chat to an escort I really don't want to visit one who can't hold a conversation in English

I can sympathise with the girls, or parlours who have to answer the phone non stop, as only a small percentage of calls leads to a booking, but frankly a rough type answering the phone , and it does happen, will put most punters off.

I would suggest something like "Hi, my name's ***** and I'm calling in response to your Advert on ****. I was just wondering if I can ask if you do a particular service of ****" or "I would like to come and see you and was wondering if you are available at .... "

I just hate it when Guys don't even bother to say "Hello"...they just launch straight into "When are you open" (at which I usually reply with "What, my legs?" :D ).

I understand that some Ladies might be monosyllabic...but I would imagine it might be in response to a rude or ungentlemanly question!!

The most often complained about line by ladies is "Give me some details" everyone hates it, and it can trigger extreme apathy from the SP. Bear in mind a girl might have had 10 such calls using that line, some of which put the phone down mid conversation.

I'd suggest you open up by saying "My name is xxxxx, I've seen your ad in the xxxxx could you tell me a little bit about yourself please?". This makes it personal to her, and throw in her name if she uses one for her ad - but not if it's obviously simply a title for the ad. Once she has run through her spiel if there is anything extra you need to know, then ask her. Don't ask for her exact location, the town or rough area is enough at this point. Any services just specify. If at the start you think she might be miles away, then you might want to say you are looking for someone in a certain area. Generally paper ads will group according to area, or will state it within their ads. It's amazing how many simply didn't read this before phoning. I've had calls from as far away as East Anglia and Northern Ireland, thinking I was closeby!

Exactly, be polite but ensure you get the information you require. A small percentage of ladies in my experiencce are monosyllabic and/or unfriendly due to having bad attitudes as i know from punting with them, most SPs make an effort at least initially, i avoid those that dont now.

When calling a lady for the first time I've always gone with something like This

"Hello is that [LADYS NAME] please? - my names Gary and I saw your ad on {SUCH AND SUCH A SITE) and I wondering if its possible to make an appointment for [sUCH AND SUCH A DATE/TIME] please?.

I've never been refused yet so it must work ;)

It would really be great if all enquiries were along those lines. I hate being "barked" at Favourites are: Details please, how much you charge, what is your address, what services you offer...How much nicer if there is at least a Greeting of some sort.

Texts are fine as long as you are succinct and straight to the point, also don't necessarily expect an instant reply. You might be at the end of your phone, but not everyone else is and I've sometimes had guys go off in a strop because I've not been able to reply for an hour or two.

Once again "Can I have some details?", or "When are you available?", are a bit like "how long is a piece of string". Sometimes I've answered with next couple of day's availability, turns out the chap is looking for an appointment next month!I usually put size, age, hair colour rates into a text but that takes some typing as you can imagine. With texts the main problem is that some exchanges can go on and on - which is why a lot of ladies really do not like to be contacted in that way. I don't mind answering a few, but after a while I'll probably advise a phone call.

Personally I tend to work by text, I gain nothing from a phone call, I find a lot of guys want to ask a lot of personal questions about your dos and likes and so on, and then don't book, just a cheap thrill for them I guess. I only really answer the phone is it is from a booking and he is due and I guess he must be a little lost or late.

Don't you get questions like that by text?My experience of text message enquiries is that they will often ask the same, does and don'ts, likes, clothing etc and I am guessing that could be the same cheap thril to some.

Of course there are those who will send a quick "Can I see you at 4pm tomorrow?", you reply yes arrange a confirmation time for them to call and it's all done and dusted. Which is great.

Unless the client is looking for the services of a Dom. Poor telephone manner is necessary to turn some people on. ;)

Or quite probably you didn't meet their needs. Possibly saving you time as well as them.

Poor telephone manner:

*Boop boop...boop boop...boo"

"Hell-leau? Hi? Sorry, I'll just turn the radio down - hell-eau?"

"Er, is that May?"

"Yes! Hi "Slartitartlicker"! I can do lunch and two hours, no problem, just ring when you're at Paddington! No worries!!"

"Um, I'm Keith?".

And this was with me not advertising my number. Me being a cretin: possibly. But when you expect a call/somebody is using a pseudonym and then, after having broken the ice decides to refer to themselves properly as John or Keith or James, when everyone else is called that...what are you to do?

Professionalism, the holy grail. After having someone book months - about a quarter in advance - and ringing me on the odd occasion to ask if all was well, and how was I and...had I seen many clients that day? And practically asking me what I was wearing, but clever enough to realise even my benefit of the doubt would have expired if he asked that directly - when you do take the next phone call you're not as bubbly, funnily enough. You've got to accept that there are tiring perv timewasters out there, weirdoes, or people who are so stressed calling you from their garden shed with the wife indoors, they automatically sound like hard work and shouty because they're nervous.
