As a deaf person that cannot use a phone to make calls ive tried to make several bookings by text.

Explaining my disability, only 2 out of 10 have replied to my texts.

Come on ladies, how am i going to book you if you dont answer my enquiry?.

I know wgs dont like texting to an unknown person but syurely this a different & maybe difficult situation for me & maybe even you.

Please tell us what you say in your text. We may be able to tell you why you're being ignored (although in many cases it may simply be that if a lady says she doesn't take text bookings, she won't be swayed on that).

I've only ever had two girls insist they speak to me on the phone to make a booking! You know one of them ;)!

I keep my message simple and to the point, as shown below:

Hi (girls name)

r u available today

at 3pm 4 a 1 hour

incall?

(my name) xx

Always put kisses on a message, to any girl, not just a wg! I would only mention you are deaf after they have confirmed a booking, as it shouldn't make any difference to them, but it would be a good idea to let them know, so they understand when you first meet up!

Yes I'd advise you keep it clear and simple, I like to speak to a person to make sure they aren't a woman or child messing around - before confirming the appointment. Unfortunately in the past I have had texts from guys claiming to be deaf, then go on to start asking more and more explicit questions. I've tried to get around this by pointing them to my website, but then of course they say they can't get online/aren't at their pc.

Not sure how you get around this one, and yes many ladies will not accept bookings via text full stop.

Why do these stupid idiots have to pretend to be deaf to get their kicks.As a disabled person life is dificult enough without them making things harder.[no pun]

I have to agree with Strawberry its a difficult one.Perhaps an E-mail first as i do,explaining things,but because of the idiots she may not believe you.

Do you have any feedback on the other site? if so you could mention this in your E-mail,and the lady could see you are genuine and would be happy without a phone call.

Just one last thing,my problem is access like steep steps and stairways,but it really feels good when i over come them and have a meeting with a nice lady.

Yeah feedback is your best Suffolk Punter. Even when i've texted ladies back and forth to arrange a meet. They do expect a final actual phone chat before we finalse everything.

Just to put both of us at ease.

I would agree that feedback will give you a fair bit of leeway - I am partially deaf and hate using the phone but I can manage in quiet surroundings, which is why I have strict times as to when I take/don't take calls and state that I prefer emails for initial contact.

Like many ladies, I am happy to answer a polite and specific text enquiry but I still ask for a brief chat beforehand just to confirm you are an adult male; as Strawberry says it's the few idiots out there who spoil it for everybody else as usual and I have found it to be necessary to avoid getting messed about (I'd happily throw the phone in the sea if it wasn't for this, to be honest). I would recommend an explanatory email rather than texting.

I keep my message simple and to the point, as shown below:

You can be bothered to type kisses, but you can't be bothered to type the words 'are', 'you' and 'for'? :blink:

Typing kisses is essential, to let the girl know that I'm "Mr affectionate"! B)

As for text speak; when in rome ....... ;). Don't want to alienate anyone! :D

Ok Guys & Galls, My text is usualy as follows:

You're not in Rome, daft beggar, you're in East Angular somewhere (if memory serves) :D. The only thing that would keep that out of the bin at mine is the fact that you at least used my first name, but I would still reserve judgement until I'd spoken to you. That said, some people maybe don't mind text speak as an initial approach from a complete stranger. I've never met any of them.

I think that's OK, but I would reject it purely on the grounds that it isn't specific - I won't answer a text unless I know when, where and how long for the proposed booking is, and if I was the one approaching a lady I would send that information first and follow up with an explanation of your disability after the brass tacks are sorted out, as you'll need to make arrangements for finding the incall premises and so on. I would still think email is likely to get you taken more seriously, but there are ladies out there who accept bookings by text alone if you can find them :).

As long as girls state on their profile/website they accept texts- and you send a polite, courteous text, short but to the point- why would you have a problem ?

girls that do not receive texts would receive emails no ?

personally I only text and receive texts from regular client when making arrangement for a booking- I do not/can not receive texts on a phone which suits me- so do not get the hassle of the silly (polite word) of texts that come all hours and sex texts/sex pests lol :-)

your above post sounds fine- if you do not get joy with texting then email. If a girl does not respond to a polite couteous text/email- is she really worth seeing anyway ? thats the question you need to ask yourself.

Ok guys are you ready for a very long post by me? Shock horror! :o

I don't take booking requests by text and its clearly written on my profile on the other site and my personal website but do advise guys that as I am only able to answer my phone on the two days I work that emailing my through my site is the best way to book.

To the OP read whatever girl it is you are trying to book and maybe it says no texts which is why you are getting no reply?

Maybe as Strawberry says as we do get lots of sex text pests who make me laugh coz why would I answer "hw ru lv?" at 3am? Or silliness like ru workin? :rolleyes:

Yes Amy I really deplore texts but text speak to a complete stranger is a big no no :rolleyes:

Again to the OP there is lots of good comments in the replies so read the ladies websites or whatever and find their prefered type of contact and you should be fine :D

By the way you aren't calling girls who advertise in local papers are you?

I think the very obvious solution to a deaf man wanting to book is

simply to only contact those who clearly state they accept bookings

by text.

I do not. I never have or will unless it is known client. Yet I still

get a lot of triers.... they attempt to book or start conversations

via text when I say on my site I do not accept this.

It can boil down to the fact that a high percentage of men do not read

a lady's site in full... they can't be bothered.

Unfortunately if I received a text from a man saying he was deaf

and could not phone me then I would assume it was a wind up or

someone trying to get text chat.

It IS a pity that there will be some genuinely deaf guys who are

having difficulty booking ladies but it is not impossible....

but the choice of ladies available to those guys is much more restricted.

Hi Suffolk Punter,

I think e mails would be an excellent option too but have you ever considered using TypeTalk (if you have access). I used to work for them and it is a totally confidential service and I had one or two users who made bookings for escort services. It would be posible to have email contact as much as possible but then use Typetalk for finalising the booking. But it is possible you would find this too embarrassing (I hope not :) )

How would the independent laides on here feel about taking bookings via the Typetalk service? I don't know if the agency I work for does or not but I hope they would.

There are still a lot of girls who do not like to take booking via text. However if I were you I would go the old way and explain you are deaf by email and you might get more response. Whatever happened to emails, I have to admit I dont like texts at all but everyone to thier own.

To which I would reply ring me. Then if you did not and followed up with another text I would ignore you.

To the original poster, I have a deaf client. He contacted me by email first to inform me of his disability. He did not ask any sleazy questions which would make him out to be a time wasting sex texter. He also wrote in proper English, with full words and punctuation! As WG's, we still have the doubt as to whether the caller/texter is under age or a jealous wife etc, which you no doubt appreciate.

Assuming the tone of the email exchange is suitable the main problem was that I do not give out my full address until the client arrives at the appointed place. How could he then get the last bits of the jigsaw. We agreed that he would phone me so that I know it is him on arrival. I could then look out the window to satisfy myself that he was who he said he was. Then I would text the precise location.

After that he could lip read, and we played it by ear. Much fun had by all concerned.

It works both ways! If I recieved the reply "ring me" to the text I'd posted, I'd think stroppy so and so and wouldn't bother! If it was "yes I'm available, but please call to confirm x", I'd have no problem and would phone! B)

I'm not trying to have ago , just saying how I might read something into the reply and after the negative comments about text-speak, I will no longing be using it - I will type words in full, from now on!

Well done.

And to your comment, I do type, "yes I am available, ring me for appointment". But on the whole people who text never do, (just follow up with another text), so it is really quite fruitless returning a text in my experience.

Come on ladies, how am i going to book you if you dont answer my enquiry?.

Add me to the list of people who think that email is your best method of approach. I am comfortable booking by email, phone or text, but find that email is definitely the easiest of the three for avoiding communication problems.

Ok Guys & Galls, My text is usualy as follows:

Hi, xxxxxxx Im xxxxxxx i would like to make an appointment to see you, Please be aware that im deaf & cannot use a telephone so have to rely on text messages. Thank you xxxxxx

(The xxxxx replaces both my & wg Names)

I think that some specifics (date and time and duration of booking) would help a lot with this.

But I've learnt all my "text-speak" bad habits from WG's! :blink:

This proves the truth of a statement of yours in another thread where you claim not to have had a girlfriend for a while. The phrase "do as I say not do as I do" springs to mind :D (sorry Amy, I know you would rather gnaw your own fingers off than type in textspeak).

After the negative comments about text-speak, I will no longing be using it - I will type words in full, from now on!

As you seem to book girls under 25 be prepared to branded an old fogey then :P . Seriously though, I think it does make a difference to your credibility. Most timewasting emails and texts reproduced by girls here seem to operate under the rule that vowels are a superfluous part of the alphabet. A well worded initial enquiry speaks volumes I feel.

I would have replied to that text with "That's fine, do you have a time/date in mind?". I know this is a little straight to the point, but it's how text should be used in this context.

I don't particularly like texting but would not be rude and ignore a text. Maybe you should stick to email explaining the problem clearly. Oh and be careful not to use too much text speak as that can put people off, or maybe they might not even understand it (not saying you do that but an awful lot do). My not so bright boyfriend got really iffy with me last week wanting to know who this LOL is I'm talking about so often... :D

I reply to texts but would usually expect a call before the actual appointment.

i think if the client seems genuine and told me they were deaf i might waive that. an email would be a good start as has already been said.

today i received a text that said ' naked wank bj 30 '

my reply saying 'no, check my profile for prices and start a text with a hello and youll get somewhere with me',

was met with ' get over your self, your a pregnant whore nothing more nothing less'

some people are lovely... :rolleyes:

For initial contact I prefer a well worded (no txt spk!) email, I have never seen but would have absolutely no issue in seeing a deaf client, however I'd really want to know everything that they would like to enjoy during our appointment in detail, so that I can ensure that everything that they want to indulge in is included in our time together. :D

I don't advertise my phone number (so cannot be booked by text by some one I don't know) although I don't mind regular clients texting me at all, as long as I know whether or not it is 'safe' to text back. If I don't know then I'll be very cautious, probably too cautious but I wouldn't want a lover to receive a text from me while, for example out for dinner with his wife! How am I to know if I haven't been told when a good time to text is!?

Unfortunately, in my experience a widely advertised number leads to late night phone calls and strange texts, one of the strangest being (sent at 5am) 'Would you like to make a baby? xx' or the hugely original gentleman who on answering his phone call replied to my 'Hello' with 'You slag!' and put the phone down. I just don't need that kind of attention!
