It's a bit disappointing...
This whole new-ish phenomenon that has been happening with posting your own ads, advertising yourself and create your own niche or clientele... These free ads sites have been popping up for the last 2 years and benefiting the consumers; yeah that's us.
But I don't think we're benefiting that much anymore. I mean really, u have indies that post GFE services for 160$. First of all, it's a hit or miss, unconfirmed and very little reliability at best. Bait and switch is very common, NOT as advertised is another. How many times were people had, I was had with these?!?! At least I stand my ground (most but not all the time, admittedly) and walk away... Many others are not so fortunate.
One thing though, with greed in their eyes, prices are slowly going up for these indies that self advertise. But us still guys flock to them like birds in the sky. Except we're turning more into pigeons.
In comparison, there are highly reputed escort agencies that offer top notch girls with quality services. Today it may be a viable option considering the difference in many cases is just a 20$. Back in the days when all this started, the price difference was much larger.
With all that said (stuff I had to get off my chest), what is the most cost effective, fulfilling option? Agencies, masseuse with open minded girls, incalls or indies...? Weigh in with your input.
Ps - I have to say thank G... Err, I mean The devil we have places like merb!
