Most of my bookings are from AW too.
Maybe it's me, I find the non-AW/directory clients easier to do, they expect a lot less

Many time-wasters beginning of February. I've been canceled twice today; one sent me a selfie of himself flexing, the usual nonsense. Also fantasists asking to meet them in Geneva, or Chamonix (ski season?) but when I asked for a travel deposit -they disappear.

On the day of a booking towards the end of last year I was sent an email to confirm which contained a naked photo. I stipulate text or phone call, he'd interpretted text as email and explained he'd been in 2 minds about the naked photo but thought it might help me know what to expect and that he was very keen.

Two results I now stipulate 'SMS text', and he now knows that naked photos could flag him as a TW. We did go ahead and he was absolutely fine, and has booked me again. As I often say difficult to distinguish TW from genuine because both can behave in similar ways.

Don’t know what’s going on. Payday has been and gone and it’s still quiet.

I’m surprised by how quiet it is at the moment, expected a bit of a rush this week. Weirdly the day before payday I was busy and booked but this week after payday it’s been time wasters and nothing much else.

I've had a serious amount of tw's, more than usual. I'm just wondering whether that's because I've changed my profile pic on AW  ::)

I was very busy before payday, I have bookings for later in the month but this week is dead however that's allowed me to indulge in personal interests so it's not a bad thing.

I’ve managed a few bookings this week but it’s been blood, sweat and tears getting them through the door and persevering through the EPIC amount of time wasters. Sheffield has been rife for them and I’ve even had to submit two ugly mug reports. Even the clients I’ve managed to book have been unpleasant and extremely hard work. Monday, I blocked and reported 3 guys to ClientEye and then had a no show! Awful! I managed to finish with an hour later that day but literally, I’m having more and more days like this and it’s really hard to battle through and keep positive. Hoping for a spate of lovely, easy going clients before I lose my sanity!

Lunchtime so far all within this 15 minutes-1 walkout,1 no conform, 1 asking if its an adult service having seen my explicit aw page....'no its a Childs service' I laugh.

Having my daily power walk past my ho flat anyway...so nothing lost...onward with my brisk trot around town.

God Salty, sounds like something I experience often now. Really feel for you and can totally relate! It’s just so fecking frustrating. Even with my tight screening and vigilance they STILL find ways to annoy. Just got to take a deep breath and keep positive and don’t let the wankers pull you down because they’re never going away. Nice clients are out there waiting to help turn things around. I think I need to get back into daily meditation and stick to it because it’s really helped me deal with the debilitating stress and emotional rollercoaster that escorting is making me experience. I can’t live like this. I’m seriously considering leaving the industry and going back to civvie work full time (shudders). In the meantime, I’m going to focus on looking after myself physically and mentally and invest in ways of coping with the abuse and torment from time wasters.

Hi Phillipa,

Thanks a ton! My rates are quite high compared to others- £500 an hour. I would rather see a few exclusive clients than many in a week, especially due to being a full-time student. I compared my rates to other high class escorts, but I guess I need to build my way up..
Hi Bella88. Yes, you will have to build up slowly..
The only independent girl I know charging £500-£600 has reviews on The Erotic Review TER, and spends a fortune on advertising every month (Cherry Girls, Eros, London Escort Guide, EscortDirectory, London-Escort, Tryst.Link, London-Independents, EuroGirlsEscorts plus other International directories) and even she had a terrible January.

It is very difficult to distinguish time-wasters from the genuine ones. So many genuine clients are asking for selfies, which I would have ignored in the past.

I’ve managed a few bookings this week but it’s been blood, sweat and tears getting them through the door and persevering through the EPIC amount of time wasters.
Yes, it's so much effort to get clients to book!
They are either skittish or want you to woo them
I felt like walking on eggshells not to say the wrong thing/offend them
My last client asked for selfies and lots of reassurance  ::) ..this was 03:00am in the morning! I finally said "you really can't pick and choose, it's 3am for goodness sake- most girls are unavailable. '

Phew! I have 1 a year ask for a selfie ! I didn't know it was common.

So true and the slightest question about what services they'd like or not offered full postcode they get terribly offended in a spoilt kid way.
How did they get infected with all this paranoid, controlling shyte? Chemically castrated or what?

I blame it on eating too much soya protein in their shakes...oestorgens turned them into pussies lol
