No Phone Number?

24 posts in this topic

Well, so tonight I had an odd experience.  I booked a well-reviewed lady for a nuru massage a few days ago via AW.  All confirmed via email so seemed all good.  

 

Then today in the afternoon I realise she hadn't sent me her address or phone number.  So I sent her a message asking for her address and mobile - this was about 5 hours prior to the booking.  Silence.  So then I check her profile again in detail and see that her postal code is on there (not that obvious!) so I think ... great, maybe this will save the booking because I can head over there and then hopefully she'll check her email or call me when I'm not calling her at the agreed time.  So went over there and sent her another note ... radio silence.  15min after the booking time went back and sent her another (polite) note later.  

 

Anything else I could have done (apart from obviously asking for her mobile when I originally booked)?  Did this happen to anyone else before?  Was really looking forward to seeing this lady!  I wonder if she was even there though because wouldn't she check her messages if the booking doesn't show up?  Lesson learnt - make sure you have her mobile as soon as you book...

It does nt matter what you have - mobile number, adress  or whatever, if she does not reply, you are on a loser -its happened to many of us - you have the number you ring/text to confirm, get the adress - and then nothing - so loads of guys say you must have a Plan B - - and if you really must have a punt in that time-slot, they are right.

OK, she could have had some traumatic event in her personal life, but if she has n't come back with a decent explanation and apology afterwards, you should name and shame.

Either she has decided she can't be bothered with you, or she got a better offer, or she is so chaotic she forgot she was working - so just get back to the research, or a trusty regular.

I always talk to the escort by phone before confirming a booking. At the very least it confirms that we can converse in a common language. I have no problem with meeting ladies whose first language may not be English, but I need to know that we can converse easily during the meeting.

I know I'll probably come unstuck one day, but I sometimes take a gamble and have booked a wg where all communication was by email only and who had no photos on her profile and hardly any feedback. Some of these on their own are a no-no, but put them all together and I normally wouldn't have looked twice.

There was just something about the way the profile was written which made me think it was genuine, plus I then saw a report from someone I trusted on another website. The punt was excellent, and if I'd have set myself strict rules about phone numbers, having to speak to the girl, or seeing profile pics - then I'd have missed out on a seriously good time.

As mentioned, if you're going to be let down it'll happen whether you've seen photos of the wg, spoken to her on the phone and have her phone number, or whether you have none of those things.

Mmmm even if a lady doesnt advertise her number if she hasn't contacted you on the day or responded to your contact I would say its a safer bet to stay at home. I dont think its that wise to leave with only a confirmation email either tbh. Whats wrong with sending  a phone number once the guy has confirmed by email on the morning. Do they expect you to just turn up and  hope? Even with a number it can go wrong but still.

In my case above we were emailing rather than using AW, both of us confirmed on the day, I emailed her my room number when I arrived at my hotel, and she even emailed back to ask if she could arrive a half hour earlier than planned... So really it was no different to texting. Some kind of confirmation is essential I'd agree.

Obviously a phone call is better / easier but one thing I've found is that some wg's, particularly part timers, have different ways of arranging their bookings. Many punters would have been put off by the girl I saw and given her a miss which is fair enough but having seen a trusted review I took a chance. She probably would have called from a withheld number if I'd insisted on speaking to her first but I never asked..

I suppose my point is there are some gems out there who have unconventional ways of operating!

Thats okay but a lot of punters have just cheap phones for punting so how can they be emailing along the way?

I guess this bit would cover it... ;)

She was quite new at the time and I've not seen her since so she may have sorted a working phone out by now anyway. Doubtless she'd have called from a withheld if I'd insisted on speaking to her but as I had the review and a couple of pm's from a guy I knew who had seen other girls I had, I didn't bother.

On the punting phone point, I found having a separate phone was a pain in the arse as I already have work and personal phones. Very recently I've started using a punting phone again by buying a dual sim phone which I use for work. The second (punting) sim can be left switched off when not used, access to the phone settings can be locked, as can access to messages, contacts etc. so for me that's a better option than a separate phone. Being a smartphone, it's still possible to email etc. Plus as it's "works phone" there's no suspicion with everything being locked down on it.

Totally agree it was stupid not having her number but to be honest, I had been so busy with work over the past few days that I totally forgot about it until yesterday afternoon. When I booked her, I thought it was fine because she was well reviewed and recommended and I thought for sure she would send me a text with details. Ah well, no money lost and maybe an hour of time wasted, no big deal. I'm sure she had a good reason why she went silent so let's see when she does get back to me. Next time get her number right away.

Never assume anything. Clear arrangements, with definite contact time. All methods of communication are fallible, so as many ways of getting in touch as possible are ideal. There can be problems with email delivery, short while ago my phone and email provider changed systems and there's a 2-45 minutes delay on emails being pushed to my phone.

"Well reviewed and recommended" but clearly no reviews on Punternet. Nuff said!!!

For me I never book unless there is a number displayed, to me no number means she is not working that day.

I phone and ask her availability then say I shall book on line. Think AW should only allow profiles to be visible when the number is up, may also stop the practice of setting area and post code to a place when they are not working at all just to get any signs of interest in different areas for future tours.

Lesson in life I know it is frustrating but you aren't dealing with a trip to Marks and Sparks

To pick up new underwear. It is people with crazy lives crazy juggling crazy everything you just have to let it go. Even if you had a convo and got the ladies inside leg measurement the nature of this job is you can let clients down at the last min just

Like they let is down too. I always say to guys' better that than show up and get shit service bec the lady is having to deal with whatever has gone wrong that day.

I wouldn't think I'm alone in having a basic punting phone plus a new iPhone for real life. The iPhone can "privately" retrieve my punting emails / AW messages.

I've known delays longer than this for a text messages too.

Given possible delays for SMS delivery I always request a delivery report for text messages. On Voda and EE you can just set the phone settings (if available) to request a report for every text and forget it. I'm on Asda PAYG which now uses the EE network.

On O2 the delivery report settings don't work but if you start the message (not the phone number) *0# you get a free delivery report as soon as your message has been delivered to the recipients phone.

I am sure the girl in question will be disappointed to learn what a great experience she missed, her loss.  ;)

That assumes the person who answers the phone is the lady you will see. I have had a few bookings where this has not turned out to be the case.

AW should only allow profiles to be visible when the number is up.

 

Its one of AW's few positive traits.

 

 

(although I can understand the frustration the OP underwent!)

In my experience I have only once had A N Other answer the phone and I was told right away that was the case.

It is possible to remove phone numbers from profiles on other directories, websites that sort of thing. OK some aren't as flexibly instant, but it's still possible.

 

Mine would be permanently off if this was the case, regulars refer to it many of whom like to use email to book, others already have the number and new clients email me and get a number once we work out we are on the same wavelength(mostly we are but a few seem to want something completely different despite my profile being fairly clear and informative). Simple.

I see your point, but I have arranged many great punts via AWs email system, often days in advance. I always confirm via phone on the day of the booking though, and would never leave home without that confirmation.

I'm on O2 and whilst it doesn't say delivered it does tell you when it hasn't been. There is also whatsapp which is free which does have a tick when delivered and a second tick when opened by the recipient x

Yeah... I've been doing more research on wgs... enjoyed going out last night and still ideally want to get free sex. BUT... if I am booking a wg having done all the research and checked out I like her if it's an indy I'm DEFINITELY ringing her first. Two main candidates I've already worked out where they live anyway. (One gave number other one haven't even messaged yet.) TBH I don't think this will be a problem if it's a quality indy but a phone call beforehand is certainly needed. You can tell a lot about a girl in how well she responds to you before a booking.

Ideally really I'd like to see a girl on webcam too before I meet her... can imagine that's quite hard for wgs if they don't offer that 'service'. Have done for meeting regular girls in real life though!
