I've never understood why escorts dislike only making phone calls and not a booking.

If one calls a furniture shop, to enquire about their prices only, do they get pissed off if there is no sale? Generally no, they would not.

So what then is the difference? A furniture shop is out to get sales, just like an escort. :)

I would admit that sometimes I may just ring up to ask what prices she offers, or the services she offers. But I would do this if I am weighing up which escort to visit, if I have a choice of a few. Again, this is no different to my example of the furniture shop.

Well, generally speaking (because some men will argue this point, and I do like to be fair), a furniture shop sells wooden, inanimate objects. An escort is a living breathing, human being. You can sit on her, but she might squeak, and sometimes (depending upon your furniture shop) she costs more.

It's a bad comparison, really. I think you'd need to be on the other end of the phone twenty-four seven, and listen to some of the stuff we have to take in our stride. Some escorts cope really well - I like to think I was one - others get upset sometimes (especially when being compared to furniture).

I don't understand. Are you saying the ladies get upset with you for making an inquiry? ;)

Were you being perhaps a little too graphic in what you were searching for?

Did you start of with "Hello, I've just seen your website..." followed by asking a hundred questions that have already been answered on the website you claim to have just visited

I can't see why anyone would be wary of a mere inquiry, unless they have your number saved as 'constant caller' or 'explicit details' etc :)

I've no problem with guys ringing and asking pertinent questions, it's when they get too explicit or ring constantly asking the same things several times or "do you really do xyz" and "are you sexy?". No don't do that I made it up, and no I'm certainly not sexy. Asking for a blow-by-blow account of what you will do "just so I can decide" is not good either and guaranteed to get the ladies back up.

Apart from that I prefer a quick phone call to loads of texts and sometimes even emails.

First my guess is that the percentage of 'timewasting ' type calls to escorts far out numbers those made to the likes of a furniture shop . Secondly, if the lady has a good website with full info and in particular the all important clear pics, then most guys will probably have already made the decision in principle to book her before he makes the call.

There may be important info that the guy requires from the escort on the phone such as exact location and security issues etc and of course,the escort's voice and attitude on the phone will all be normal determining factors as to whether the punter decides to actually make a booking. But I can understand why an escort feels that calls from punters should not be merely enquiries or fact finding missions.

I'd recommend limiting your call to 5 minutes or less; surely you wouldn't talk to a furniture retailer longer than that? Normal retailers wouldn't tolerate repeated calls either.

A very valid point. A large number of girls have, for whatever reason, thrown customer service out of the window.

there are quite a few exception, but many girls will not discuss more on the phone that booking date / time and length and seem to want to get rid of the (genuine) punter within 30 seconds.

I agree. I only book newbies to me by phone and require a quick chat to confirm price and services as some ladies sites either lie or are not keep updated in my experience so i cant rely on them being accurate.

By phoning you can tell a bit about the lady although its not fall proof.

Sometimes guys don't help themselves in allowing us to have a conversation with them.

A barked first utterance on picking up the phone 'Give me details', what details, anything particular you'd like to know, what have you already seen.

When you call a shop would you say 'Give me details', or more likely 'I'm looking for a wardrobe in oak and happy to spend about £500, do you have any ?' then the person on the other end of the phone would spend time chatting with you and telling you what they've got, because they know what you want.

However we ladies are mind readers.

5 minutes is certainly enough time to get confirmation of what i require, although with ladies with no or little English it has taken longer on ocassion.

Just saw an ad in the underground: guy wants a new TV, goes to the expensive department store, gets all the gen., buys the TV at Curry's?Dixons. In the trade it's called 'intelligent shopping'. Yes, I know all you ladies are different, each with your own unique selling point, but a bloke wants to make sure he is buying a plasma screen and not a CRT. A 'phone enquiry gives the sp on the bandwidth - sorry about the change of analogies.

Your analogies make no sense at all, in this context. It's one thing to "get all the gen" about a TV and then buy the particular model you choose from the cheapest source - but women are not TVs. :) You can't decide that Darla (for example) fulfills all your fantasies, and then book me and complain that I'm not Darla!

But some of us have more than one fantasy! :)

No, you're quite right on that point, Caitlin, but the discrepancy - noted in the past - between what a few WGs will entertain and what they offer on their websites means that phone calls are pretty essential to all indie WGs.

I have a different take on this.

For the past 12 months I have spent most of my punting time & money on two WGs; both in their different ways 1st class. several of my previous posts of call have retired or otherwise moved on.

I keep looking to enlarge my choice but their is a shortage of FRs in this region and I prefer to have corroboration for the website testimonials.

I find I rely on manner and voice to make choices, even on the phone you can quickly sense if the other person is your "type".

is sensible research "timewasting"?

I get the feeling from your posts that you're not a timewaster at all, and would be unlikely to call up with the words, "I've seen your website, how much for half an hour incall in Dumfries*?"

Sadly, others do... :)

*This is a very clear indication to me that they haven't looked at my website at all. Why do guys lie about these things? I mean, do they just randomly write down phone numbers to call when they have a spare fifteen minutes for a wank?

What about the self-assembly ones? Those Swedish girls can be really difficult if you don't have the right tool.

If guys call up and just ask to verify what I say I do, availability etc that's absolutely fine. It's the ones who want a graphic description of what I can/will do or, start to talk about their supposed appendage size and "can you take 12"" that turn me right off. I've been accused of being very rude because my tone changed after undergoing 10 minutes of a guy wanting me to describe exactly what I will do from minute one of a short appointment, right to the end - being told I'm obviously no the nice friendly girl I portray on my website. There have also been chaps who ring every couple of weeks for 1-2 years asking you to go over your details plus what you will wear so they can "picture it in my mind" and "make their mind up".

What would you guys advise be the best way to deal with such calls without getting cynical or coming across as rude?

If you want to be civil just say i recognize your number and/or voice and are you actually wanting to make a booking this time, if not can you please ring back when you are ready to. Goodbye and put the phone down. I wouldnt be civil if it was me though.

Hahahaha - yep I positively embrace it!

Actually, I think it can be quite easy to spot the timewasters as opposed to the nervous callers or those getting a general feel of what you sound like before they book. Some people on here really agonise a little too much about how they deal with simple and straight forward issues. If someone wants a step by step account of what they are going to get in a booking and what we are going to wear then they are 99% likely to be timewasters looking for a free sex chat line. As for the remaining 1% - would not be the kind of person I would wish to entertain so again no loss! So instead of worrying about how you deal with obvious situations - when the phone goes, smile and answer it with a positive mindset. It will soon transpire if the caller is genuinely gathering some info before booking or someone trying to get their kicks. Those that finish the call without booking may call back at a later stage. However, I am not going to lose sleep over firmly bringing a call to an end by someone who waffles on. Even if they are genuine - if they already really irritate me on the phone - chances are that I wish to off them and help them along to the great eternal punting ground in the sky and I simply do not have the patio space! :)

I wonder how long the conversation would last if someone asked the furniture shop owner if the table was good to shag on :):rolleyes:

No, but what if I find Daria is both bookable through an agency and as an indie. Does it not make sense to offer her less than the agency charges and talk to her about this?
