Am I Being To Picky?

21 posts in this topic

Set up a reverse booking, so far had around 10 bids.

If I apply a criteria of

1. Services stated in Request

2. Some feedback

3. Useful Photos that don't get 50 hits on tineye

4. Age Range

5. Something more than a phone number in the bid comments.

Then all bids are excluded.

Oh dear, no it doesn't sound like you are being too picky at all!! I hope that you get some better responses soon.

I'd most likely drop 5 (something more than a phone number...), but don't see how anybody could not use other 4.

I've had one bid whose profile consists of a single photo that Tineye detects was from a ex-girlfriends porn site. She sent her phone number and this googled to another escort's site, the same listing on a generic escort site and some classified ads which incidentally gave the full address.

She also said she didn't have any photos but was using an iPad to email me. I would think the chances of her having an iPad but no camera phone were remote.

I wouldnt drop 5. If someone just post a phone number I think it's lazy. They should include a little comment to show they've actually read the reverse booking and are interested in what he's asking for as well.

To answer your question your paying so its your pregorative to be as picky as you wish.

Yeah, I'm more likely to accept a reverse booking if the reply shows shes actually read the requirements. I also hate an obviously copied and pasted reply.

Indeed, as with most things in life, if they can't get the first point of contact right then the chances are they wouldn't bother making their service any good.

I don't think you're being too picky. One problem with reverse bookings from the girls' point of view is that statistically you are very unlikely to win the booking. Personally, if I see one in my area with 50 bids I tend not to bother. You might want to delete silly bids ASAP to encourage more serious girls.

I am thinking it's age range that is killing him.

This isn't an attack on whatever you chose, but to me it jumps out as the only widely variable thing - unless you are in a complete punting desert.

No way are you being picky. You are the client, you have the money, you decide what you want from an encounter.

I dont want to put a spoke in things, but I've tried reverse bookings on a number of occasions. In March, I chose a lady with very good three-figure feedback who was, to say the least, disappointing, and made me wonder why others raved over her. Sometimes you simply dont hit it off. On more recent reverse booking, none of the ladies offering themselves floated my boat, so I didnt bother, rather than have a mediocre punt.

What I did find, even though I was very specific in type of lady I wanted, (18-35, slim (dress sizes 6/8/10), OWO, full-on kissing etc) and stating clearly ladies with zero feedback need not apply, I had offers from ladies with the big fat zero feedback, that were outside the age and size range, that didnt offer OWO, that had been on the site for under 2 weeks and some wanted £100+ over my suggested price of £230 for 2 hours.

It would be helpful if they read what the customer actually wanted, so they clearly dont or are selective readers.

It's very probable I wont ever use reverse bookings again, but I wish you every success, and that you find someone that meets your requirements.

I've found some good punts through the reverse booking system. Although when I did one for London one of the first bids I got was from a TS..

I've done a few reverse bookings in the past, like many on here I've had a number of replies that were way off my criteria (so binned) but sifting through the wheat from the chafe I have found a few great punts - and at significant discount from their 'advertised' prices too.

So I'm a fan of the RB system personally

This the 4th time I've done a RB, two of the previous 3 have ended up with excellent outcomes. 1 ended up as a cancellation from the bidder 2 days before.

Anyway, about 4 hours after this was posted had a bid from someone who is regarded as one of the best in the area. So sorted as far as who to confirm, just the deed to enjoy.

Wouldn't the answer depend on the services and the age range?

Agree completely. I don't think you are being picky at all, you are trying to select the best possible escort for your needs, and writing a personalised comment will show that we have read what you want, and add's some personal touch. As to the other points, they are essential for you, really daft to reply to RB's that you don't meet the criteria for. I agree with Darla Glasgow as well, just delete the silly ones asap, I also won't bid on RB's with masses of bidders.

Good luck x

My thinking (almost called it logic, but suspect that's flattering myself) was based on assumption guy might live in a punting desert. (He might given failure of reverse bid process.) Then... maybe... it might be worth phoning all those that passed first 4 criteria, and had suitable profiles. But I must admit.... it wouldn't be ideal.... you're most likely right.

Services were OWO + RO as essentials and then A Levels, CIM as desireable but omission not a deal breaker if profile looks good. Profile age range 18-30, debateable what that translates to in RL terms.
