    Agencies Pressuring Hobbyists...Decide NOW Before the Meeting!

    Hello all,

    There is a strong growing trend among many agencies that seems to have escalated in the last year or so. Once you decide to call for a meeting, and the lady you want is available, you have to decide right away how long you want her to stay before she is started on her way. I tend to say something like...well, the reviews are good but I can't be sure we will click. Afterall, who knows how two individuals will react to one another. Sometimes the agencies attitude depends on the night or on the general popularity of the lady, but more and more the agents are insisting that the hobbyist decide precisely on the number of hours before seeing the lady. While I understand that agencies would like to maximize their profitable hours and this method seems fairly logical in some business sense for the agents, this type of approach has the distasteful flavor of dealing with a pushy car salesman.

    As a reasonably honest person I don't say...sure, give me two hours while planning to dump someone if she isn't as appealing as I hoped. Of course if the situation with a lady is just bad in view of manners or a complete lack of attraction there is little choice in asking her to leave. But, in general, I find this growing trend of forcing commitments on a lady site unseen and often with little or no reviews to be both distasteful and unreasonable. In my view, having just a few minutes to meet someone and get some feeling of the attraction and connection is fair. I often want two hours to relax and enjoy the meeting in a way one hour just won't fulfill. But being pressured on the phone to decide instantly without any previous experience is simply...again...unreasonable. I may be on thin ground here. I know the agencies have the right to do as well as they can. But in my opinion this attitude described above is overbearing and gives too much advantage to the agents. Allowing the hobbyist a few minutes to meet is a much better balance if interests between all parties...including the interest of the lady, which is no small part of the whole association. I hope the agencies will recognize that these methods can lose as much business as they hope to gain by them. Do you agree???

    Regards,

    Korbel,

    I definitely agree. I have no problems making a commitment up front if I already know the lady. Rather that than ask for more time once she has arrived. Tried that a few times and was not able to extend. My fault and not the agencies. However, if we have not met, I find it hard to ask for multiple hours based on reviews by others. I have done that on several occassions and wished I hadn't. But I had to take the extra time since that was only fair on my part. I have found in a couple of instances that the lady who arrived was not what I expected. I gambled and lost. I know that there are a few agencies that seem to be doing quite well right now but is business that good for all of them? Also, once the agencie knows you, don't you think they would be a little more understanding? I think that if you deal with the same agencies most of the time, they will be more likely to give you that few minutes once the girl arrives. At least they should. They should not cut off the hands that feed them.

    So in effect what you guys are saying is that you want to book 1 hour, but you want the agency to block out 2 hours of the lady's time just in case you want to keep her longer. So, if 5 minutes after your call (before you have seen her) they get another call to book her for the hour after yours (perhaps for multiple hours), they should turn it down just in case you like her and want to keep her longer. Am I reading you correctly ?

    No...not correctly.

    Hello Chef,

    I never said I wanted the agencies to "block out two hours"..."just in case". What I tried to say is we should not have to decide on whether we want one hour or two on the phone. We should be able to decide after meeting the lady for a few minutes. Clearly, I know I am assuming a risk that the agency may get a call for the lady while she is on her way. That is a reasonable risk I think we should all accept if we are not reasonably sure about the lady and cannot decide before meeting. It is only fair that each side take their risks. The way you put it is clearly not fair to the agency. I don't see how you read your slant on the matter into my post.

    Regards,

    Korbel

    Chef,

    Of course if we have chosend not to book multiple hours until we see who arrives and she is booked by the time we decide to take more hours, that is clearly our loss. I would not expect any agency to hold time until we decide. Thats clearly not fair to them. What Korbel is talking about is strictly being pressured to make that decision on his first call when he hasn't seen the lady before.

    I think you guys (except Chef) are way out of touch here. Put yourself in the agency's position....is this how you would operate? By allowing hobbyists to decide once the lady arrives how long they want to see her? If so, you wouldn't last very long in this business if you'd start your own agency. Come on, think about it guys....let's say that you call a certain agency and you want to see so-and-so. The other person on the phone would tell you: "Sure, she'll be available possibly at around 9pm. We're not sure about this....she has an appointment at 7:30pm, but we're not sure how long the client will keep her for. It might be for 1 hr, 2hrs or more....we absolutely don't know right now! Call back at 7:35pm and we'll tell you whether or not you can see her tonight...hopefully, he'll only keep her for an hour and you can see her at 9pm. And once you see her, you can decide for how long you want to see her....i recommend that you book her for at least 2 hrs since there are many clients presently lined up behind you in order to see her. We do understand that we also risk losing all our clientele by operating this way."

    Do you actually think this is realistic? If i misread what you seem to be implying, i'll stand corrected.

    I second Doc on this. Korbel, I do understand what you're trying to say but ...
    Unpleasant it would be for the girl to know that she has to show up like an ''article'' before the guy make his decision!
    Also, how many time hobbiest complains about being bumped by another client that decided to extent and/or about the lady being late? These may be some administration/management reasons why it's getting importante to know if you wanna 1 or 2 hour appointment...
    What do you think about it?

    Just my 2 cents!

    I agree with Chef, especially if it's busy. I understand the concerns when meeting a new person, but it's a chance you take. You can always see her again if you like her.
    Why are homely people discriminated against...we're the majority

    That's an excellent idea! Korbel, you may found a girl for you (or a few ) and then it would be easier for you to book for more than 1 hour ... in advance.

    Have a nice day!

    Which is why i often book lesser-reviewed ladies for 1.5 hrs (if it's our first encounter) if i'm allowed to. Not every agency allows these types of bookings, though.

    Not Feasible!

    I agree with everyone here except Korbel and NH Brat, Doc summed it up well in his post. You can't expect to meet a girl at 9pm and decide then and there if you want to extend your date to 2 hours and expect the agency to grant your wish, it just doesn't make sense and any agency that did this, like Doc said would be blackballed in record time.

    I am amazed that you have all misread what we have said. So I will ask. Have anyone of you had a lady show up and at that point called to request more time? I would be surprised if none of you had. If you make the call and the lady is not booked after your hour, what is wrong with booking more time at that point? If she is booked, our loss. If not, doesn't the girl and the agency benefit? They don't have to pick her up and she stays busy longer. What Korbel was talking about was agencies who pressure you to make a decision for more hours up front, before you have met the lady. That's all. Seems pretty clear to me. You are all misreading. Korbel, please correct me if I am wrong.

    I don't think agencies are pressuring anyone. What they can do is to reserve a 1-hour slot for you, and if the next hour has not been booked by the time you meet her, you can extend your session to the second hour. What they can't do (for popular escorts) is to block the second hour from being booked by another customer, until your hour starts. That is, you can't take that second hour out of booking availability unless you book it ahead yourself. I guess you have to take the chance that you will want her for 2nd hour but can't have her, or the chance that you have her for 2 hours but don't want her.

    1-hour appointments are so much simpler.

    What you just said about benefits is all good.
    The thing is all about the pressure.
    But if the guy is not sure himself it is at is own risk.
    If he is asking the agency to take that risk, well then I don't agree.
    I think that's what the opposite opinions are saying here...

    As long as the agencies are not saying book her for multiple hours or you can't see her, I don't see how they can possibly pressure you. So, just do as a host of other posters have said: commit to only one hour and take a chance that if you want more time when she comes (sorry, arrives ) she is available for more time.
