When To Phone?

43 posts in this topic

When is it best to phone? or when worst?

For parlour or agency, I feel OK anytime. The WG has delegated the role to another. And the number is posted - they choose to answer the phone or or not. Perhaps I should feel the same phoning an indy, but I don't. Do I phone at 7AM? 11PM? Can I phone on a Saturday or Sunday? And for someone new, if I I want to see them in an hour, does it feel wrong to phone them at 2:00 to see them at 3:00?

Sometimes the profile or website will tell you when you can phone. If not, the phone ought to be off when it is inconvenient. If it is on, that suggests it is fine to talk.

For a booking with an hour, taking into account the above, yes- at worst you will be told it is not possible.

I make it clear on my site how much notice I need for an appointment plus the times when I'm normally able to answer the phone, although mine is always switched on; my phone doesn't register missed calls when it's switched off, and if somebody seriously thinks it's OK to ring me twenty-three times at four am, I want to know about it so I can make sure we never wind up in the same room.

I have a call blocker which immediately cuts off callers outside these hours and sends them a message reminding them that ringing between 8pm (more often than not 6pm) and 10am is futile unless I'm working away somewhere - I would think that most full-time ladies would take calls during normal 'office' hours, or otherwise if no information is given, go on the hours she is available for appointments (so if she takes evening bookings phone in the evening, daytimes phone during the day, and so on).

Don't most ladies say how much notice they need for appointments in their ads? If not, I agree with the poster above and I'd just ring and ask.

I phone when suits me but i wouldnt for example ring an Indie or a Parlour/Party at 3am unless i knew they advertised as being available at that time. I use what common sense i have.

I am usually a same day punter so dont know until i wake up whether i feel like a punt and often ring a WG on my to-see list to see if she is available a couple or a few hours later, if not fair enough i go elsewhere and may try her again in the future.

EXACTLY this! I'm glad it's not just me who gets this kind of behaviour!

I have my phone on all the time, but tend not to answer it after midnight.

I usually state my availability and the days I'm working (which I update weekly) generally if I'm working a weekend then calling on a Saturday or Sunday is fine. I'd probably suggest when calling most girls at least 2-3hours notice is usually fine (from my own and other girls I know experience anyway). I guess if a wg has her number up though and has not specified her days/times working then you may need to call just to find out, just luck of the draw as to whether they answer or not if that's the case.

10am? not really office hours then.

seriously, if you want to see the lady at 11, when can you call that day. 9? 930? if a lady says she works form 11 to 9, then is it reasonable to call at 9. she may not be working but she may be answering her phone whole she hoovers, does the washing and chills with a coffee and a bowl of shreddies.

the latest word is transparency. so ladies, just put 'I work from 11am to 9pm and will take calls between 9am and 9pm' Then we know.

Good point CP.

I feel, unless it clearly states otherwise, it is perfectly reasonable to call between 8am and 8pm.

JUST RING! What have you got to lose, ey?? They will either answer, or not. Whoever thought having sex with people would be so complicated??

I guess it's the best to phone during the day or evening, but not later, unless it's advertised. Day shouldn't make a difference. But, yeah it depends on the girls.

Well I was specifically talking about when I'm at home where I don't take same day bookings at all (so 'getting in early' isn't an issue) and have other committments (among them a most-days gym visit between eight thirty and nine thirty). When I'm touring, the phone is on from about 8.30am and I stop answering around eight-nine pm depending on how tired I am. Either way, I don't know many ladies who will be answering at 8am. If the ads don't say anything to the contrary I'd try between nine and six.

EDITr: meant to quote CP's post, sorry. Bloody phone :)

One thing that might well happen to you if you ring at an anti-social hour is to be put on the lady's TW list! I was once walking a lady home at 03.00hrs, when some dolt rang her - she passed the telephone to me to answer!

I'd say first rule is: Read her site/profile - all of it, and if she gives times to ring, stick to them, and if she doesn't,

then second rule is: Don't ring outside 10.00 to 20.00.

I have a voicemail message asking callers to ring between 7am and 11am, it really works well for me.

I've got a mention in my FAQ about when to ring - do be careful about calling outside of hours as you'll get blocked by many.

Helpful comments one and all. And Saturday even Sunday? Shall we assume you have a punter phone like we do and it wont bother you? I hear the comment JUST RING, but it is great to hear POV. Not many mention this in profiles and I assume most dont work 7 days. I have heard w/e are quiet but for me it is best time.

Despite having my available times on my a w profile and website I get callers at strange hours which I don't mind because if I am not taking calls because I am busy or asleep the phone is on silent. I see no harm in a man calling at silly hours to see if I am free, but what is annoying is finding a whole string of missed calls from the same number. I'm sorry, if a man rings every two minutes for half an hour and is not capable of leaving a voicemail, sending a text or thinking its 3am she is probably asleep then he is too stupid to see me ever! Seriously guys, you probably don't do this, but it is not uncommon to get men ringing over and over and over without leaving a message and I know other escorts get this.

It is not the time if day that is the issue it's the freaky obsessive continual calling that is!

I very rarely leave a voicemail if the WG is a newbie to me or a text, its not how i want to communicate with her initially. I wouldnt ring at such a time either but if i ring at say 11am and get no answer she might be busy, not working or whatever so i might try again in 15 minutes and then in another 15 minutes, if still no answer i might try again in a couple of hours if i am very keen, going elsewhere if still no answer perhaps to try her again in the future. Every 2 minutes for half and hour is certainly excessive in my opinion.

Ideally being a sameday punter i am wanting an immediate response but understand thats not always going to happen, if i can get her in the timescale above fine, if not i will move on. It can be a battle against the clock with newbies to me on ocassion, and such is punting. :)

That'd work quite well for me Charlotte, but I know quite a few girls who don't realise that there are two 7 o'clock's in the day :)

Well said. We are the customer the lady is the service provider. It is business, would you wonder about when to phone a restaurant ot a garage? My view, within reasonable hours, is that, if she wants my business she will pick up.

As customers we have to pussy-foot around enough without wondering if we are going to disturb someone. The more hours her phone is on and answered, the more chance of picking up business.

I have a saying: nothing good ever comes of a call made after 11 pm. The level of intelligence (and sobrierty) of the person calling declines exponentially by the minute. Lately, I just don't bother unless it's a number I recognise from a previous sane conversation. But men calling that late tend to be drunk, with mates and expecting you to turn up at their home in the middle of no-where for a gang bang. It's not the twilight hour. It's the Muppet Hour.

And yes, if a guy has called me repeatedly at a ridiculous hour, and not figured that the first call didn't get answered because I might possibly have been asleep, I save that number as a Do Not Answer (DNA). I'm a night person myself, but these are not the kind of people you want to be alone in a room with.

My website states when I usually am happy to accept calls and this often is as early as 8am, which being a fairly early-bird is actually a very good time for me. I don't like answering calls between 10pm and 7:30am because I'm usually either asleep, or working out at those times. I also find many who phone or text between those hours are usually requiring a short notice, instant appointment (which I don't offer, and certainly not at that time of day/night), and/or can be quite persistent, even quite rude after being politely told this. So it's a lot easier to turn the phone either to silent, or completely off until 8am in the morning.

I have found that calls to Ladies on their 'work mobiles" are often simply sent to 'voicemail' or whatever !

Sometimes a bit frustrating that, as so many SP's say on their profiles that they will not reply to either voicemail or text messages :angry:

I do understand that you Ladies cannot always "pick-up" your 'phones ( for obvious reasons, I hope :D ) but how are we Service Seekers ever going to get in touch with you, if you don't read and reply to texts, or reply to voicemails ???? :angry:

Jack. :ph34r:

there are many occasions when a simple text is far more discreet then a call....both ways in fact....

Usually girls have on their website their working hours, If its not stipulated that her phones are turned on at such and such time I would think its okay to call within a few hours of her working day starting, or working night. Its simply as others have stated, call and see, she will either have her phone turned off or not, if the working phone is turned on then I would think its okay to text and she should if professional text back to you discreetly. If she doesnt work nights though I wouldnt be calling after a certain time and especially during the night.

really? This vital bit of information is often missing, along with location. many indie sites don't have the location on or its buried somewhere. on the index page put working hours and what town you are in or have a clear link to where that information is.

not rocket science but many don't have this.

websites should be designed for the hard of thinking to use, and stuff like this should be spelled out in simple 'janet and john' terms. Sorry -i have long and bitter experience of people misunderstanding stuff in civvie life so have learned this the hard way.

And get someone to proof read it. not only for typos and poor grammar, but to make sure the writing says what you want it to say! We call it a 'sanity check' at work.
