Text Contact

59 posts in this topic

Right here is a question to both guys and gals on the forum. I know some WGs/Escorts only accept bookings via email, others via phone call, and some by text message.

My policy is I'll take enquiries via email, secure a first time booking with phone call plus confirmation (in any format by 9am on the day for advance), after that clients can check or make bookings with me by text. I will also respond to first-time texts but not get into lenghty text chat.

So what I'm asking is how much is sufficient by text for the guys and gals, how much do you accept by text from clients either first time or otherwise.

I think everyone knows my standing on this one, but I shall repeat it again ;)

I bloody hate texts! I find them so rude, especially "Hi sexy you look fit" style texts but if a guy texts please can I have your website I will text back the address and under it No texts calls ONLY :)

But all other silly texts either get No texts calls ONLY or ignored depending on how silly they are :eek:

And I wouldn't accept a first time booking any other way than on the phone :)

I suspect that British WGs like phone calls as part of their vetting procedures, whereas foreign WGs (esp.with limited Eng lang skills) prefer texts. If the girl is really switched on she has template responses...

A lot of timewasters seem to like texting.

IMO initial contact by email is acceptable, but telephone contact is essential, and texts should only be used to update girl or punter if you are running early/late etc.

I don't see any harm in text contact once you have met and intend to makea further appointment.

Yes I don't mind regulars texting for an appointment after I have seen them before :)

I would only ever consider text if I had seen that particular lady in the past - never for a first appointment. I agree that text with someone you don't know can be a bit impersonal and rude.

Part of the reason is also to ensure I stick to one of my golden rules of punting ; I only see British ladies. Now before I get lambasted by some of my peers, I acknowledge this cuts down on available choices and has other disadvantages, but it suits me for a whole range of reasons.

Same here obviously for different reasons but I like to hear my prospective client :)

I don't mind answer the odd question or are you available this afternoon etc, but the advent of 100s of free texts seems to be encouraging the wrong type of text.

I do reply with a straight forward answer and often my website address to assist. Quite often I'll get further questions which then lead on and on. If/when I ask to call I have been called "unfriendly" or "stupid".

Other situations I've come across have been guys expecting immediate responses - then sending out the same text 3 times to try get a reply or assuming I don't want to see then because I don't reply. Often this has been because I'm driving (I do have a handsfree so a direct call is fine), asleep (yes I do this between 10pm and 9am in the morning), with a client, or as a few weeks ago in a 'Contact Lens Teach' appointment followed by a gym session. All incompatible with replying to texts yet even after the latter had repeat rquests as to why I was not responding to texts.

The best reasons for not calling are "I haven't any credit just free texts" or "I'm babysitting my children".

Doesn't inspire confidence.

I usually use e-mail to enquire about a booking, and try to keep it simple and to the point.

I abhore texts, and the way it has become a new language, so if need be I would use a phone, but as I dont own one, would be using a phone box.

Sadly I find this route not shared by all, and like not owning a credit card, or my own transport, this can work against me, but if the lady is prepaired to trust me, then its possable we can communicate a booking, and do so without exchanging info that is not important.

Sometimes I might try a phone call first. If I get through that’s OK, but leaving a voice message is not very useful as I usually can’t be available for a call back at random times, and often can’t even predict suitable times. Then you get into phone ping-pong. So I might try calling half a dozen times over a couple of days, but some girls seem to think that constitutes stalking.

I very often text or email for the first contact, on the lines of

“Hi, Doris. I’ve seen your website and would like to meet if possible. Any chance of tomorrow (Friday) at 12:30 for one hour. Barry”

I’ve found most will reply to such a text/email. Most will want a phone call before the actual meet, and it seems easier to arrange a phone call once you are both partially committed.

Absolutely fine. I just don't see much need for any further.

Yes an email saying that is just fine :)

I'm with you on this, I can't stand text messages and wish I could turn them off.

LOL. I bet you're looking forward to the actual meeting after that. If he can't even be arsed to phone you ..... :D

Funnily enough, even outwith punting, I tend to phone people because I "can't be arsed" with text after text after text. A text conversation can take 20 minutes to arrange something that could be arranged in a 3 minute phone call.

God - I sound like a real old fart :o

I don't mind text messages within reason and if they polite and friendly. I will answer maximum three then would like a phone call. I won't accept a booking from a first time punter by text but with regulars no problem at all

By putting a limit on the number of texts answered you tend to eliminate timewasters.

Apart from the initial contact by email which i never do except with ladies on here who i have a bit of an idea about from their posts however unscientific that may be, i agree with you. Phone chat and text to inform the lady of any problems etc.

There is one lady in my punting area who doesnt take any phone bookings and for me text is the only way, but when i first arranged to punt with her she did speak to me on the phone by prior text arrangement. Oddly i rang in again to make another booking the same way and her partner answered for whatever reason and made it clear phone bookings are never taken, when i pointed out i had made a phone booking previously by prior arrangement he said i was mistaken. As i knew she was excellent i didnt bother arguing i just made bookings by text from then on with her.

I do prefer a chat before every punt however many times i have seen a lady though.:)

I agree with you. A quick phone chat is far more preferable to me than a so called text converation.

My regular is perhaps unusual in that she actually has a slight preference for texts. Generally, however, I try and phone first to make the appointment subsequent details of which we then finalise by text (her getting back if the answering machine has fielded my call, confirmation etc.). Possibly this is because I keep my texts brief and to the point (though always of course cordial and never brusque), but I don't think this is just due to the fact that she knows me now because she has worked this way from the outset of our association and she didn't know who I was during my first two times of making contact.

Well I haven't seen a single girl/agency in the US using text messages for making an appointment. Bookings are usually made through email or phone calls, but some prefer only emails. I know a girl who said she stopped using her mobile phone becuase she kept getting calls every hour throughout the day, yes I mean 24 hrs.

Oh yes didn't you know escorts aren't meant to sleep or work regular hours :)

On first-meets: Always need a voice-contact with the Lady. Need to know if she can hold a sensible conversation.

Mail or text to make the arrangement is fine, but I will want to hear the voice before the final decision.

Mail- or Text-only arrangement : only with someone I know and trust.

Text-bookings can be very efficient, but you need to establish trust first.

Lol yep, I think we've all suffered from this misconception. Phone is now switched firmly to silent overnight. I am generally not appreciative of communications at 3 in the morning! By the way, hello, Louisa darling and thank you for your recommendation of this site - when I get the hang of it I'm sure I'll be fine :D

Regarding text messages generally, a sensible question - 'Are you available at x o'clock?' will generally be responded to. However I really cannot abide the one that run along the lines of 'U R wel fit. Cn I av a bj 2nite'. Most inappropriate and definitely on the 'ignore' list.

I always prefer to speak to my gentlemen before an initial booking; it helps us get a feel for each other (no pun intended, I promise) and as Louisa says, it helps to weed out those gentlemen who might be less than ideal clientele in terms of how respectful and polite they are. I expect courtesy from my gentlemen and so far in my indie career have been uniformly blessed. Long may it continue!
