accepting a uke booking

#1
So girls, what is going to be your acceptance criteria for a booking arranged through uke?

As not many carry their aw nics, some don't carry their ukp nic and some are new to all....

This is a spin off question to what I've read in other threads about if or how you read feedback and whether you see said punter or not.

Will you accept bookings through here or is it just a chat platform to you?

I have accepted bookings from here, I haven't actually met anybody yet but I'm looking forward to the meetings :rolleyes:

It's no more risky than accepting a booking over the phone which most girls do, we can chat via PM first and swap phone numbers as well.

Yes I agree and this is what UKE is for for those interested of course.

I know it's early days but we are at 500 members in just over two weeks. It won't continue at that rate but if there are 2000 members by sometime in the new year, I can see this as a viable alternative to AW. Admin may even design a booking page to provide assurances to both sides.

As I say, early days, but certainly on the cards.....

I certainly hope so, A/W is like wading knew deep in shit to find a gem and in my view has got a lot worse this year.
I dunno, stuff like the above makes it hard for us girls to want to stick around or post much.
I understand that's how some blokes talk about women and whatever but it would work a lot better for this site if that kind of thing was saved for ukp.

I assumed he meant wading through fake profiles/PG scams etc when looking for a genuine WG.

Smiths can speak for himself but I took his post to mean Adultwork is becoming swamped with fake or scam profiles. Certainly 90% of the "new member alerts" I receive from AW carry a warning and are gone by the next day. Genuine new profiles are few and far between in my area.

I will be OK then :thumbsup:

Well doesn't do any harm to suggest that it could work out well for both parties with this site if it's kept civil and the derogatory crap is saved for ukp. I know it's not every guy, but it's obviously going to have an effect on ladies joking if it's the same old insults and waffle on ukp

Regardless of where someone books me from be ur a forum, a website or AW I will still insist on a phone call as I can tell more about someone's attitude from a 2 minute call than I can from a year chatting on a forum as some people do put on false personas on forums (look at the amount of people who tried rejoining UKP trying to act differently). So if they wanted to book me via here I would still want a phone call so I would prefer they just called as I prefer not to know in advance that the person I am seeing is likely to write a review as I have said before the few odd ones will try to use that to their advantage and hold it over the person they are booking so ruin it for those that don't and wouldn't do that

Yes of course I agree then. Although it seems that a lot of profiles may appear dodgy when they're not. I think they're flagging up a lot now for not verifying or for silly reasons (had it done to me) when the girls are genuine. But I can understand doesn't make it easier for you guys. I'm funny about what Amazon seller I use, same thing

Actually I prefer this from a punter's perspective too. It can't help safeguard against things like bait and switch but it is generally good to speak in person first. That's just my preference but others may prefer not to.

I too like the pre booking phone chat, if the phone number is on the profile then it's easy, not so simple if it's not though, some want the booking in before phone numbers are handed over (makes me slightly more edgy does that)

I have zero faith in A/W as I view the owners as low lifes, I go on my own experience and that of punters I know, trust and/or respect.

It does for mw too. Not sure why. I had one booking where I never got a number and it was all done by AW messaging. I got a call half an hour before from a withheld number to check I was on my way and another 10 minutes before to give me the hotel room number but it would have made it difficult for me if I had been stuck in traffic or something :unknown:

I don't mind were bookings come from, here, AW, viva street or other. All require a phone call first before before being confirmed or accepted. My way of thinking is to spread yourself around for maximum exposure, the more places I advertise the more I'll become known from every type of punter, however he searches. At the moment most of my work is 40% viva street 40% AW and 20% other.

I don't punt without speaking to a WG on the phone first and seeking confirmation before I leave for her place that the punt is still on. Easy decision for me, no displayed phone number, no business off me.

I don't like to give my phone number until I think I've sussed whether the guy is a timewaster or not. I don't need a booking request first though. It's because I get far too annoyed by timewasters and don't want to end up getting snappy with the next genuine call I have by being in a bad mood already. And to stop the likes of the guy who would send me 30 texts every day declaring his love for me despite never having met me.

Me too. Used to display my number but it was just ridiculous. Prefer message first to figure out if they're likely to be genuine then I'll give my number

I accept bookings from places other that aw so here would just be another place to get to know potential clients. However I only display my number on aw when i work. I have it on another site and when i switch on my work phone I just get bombarded with missed calls and texts

This is pretty much how I work - you message me with the request, we exchange a couple of emails/messages while services etc are discussed, then you get my phone number once a provisional booking has been made (not a booking through AW). Then we have a chat on the phone at a time convenient to you. That's when I confirm the details of the meet etc. I can usually get a feel for a person via messages/emails, plus I like having the session requests (services/clothing etc) in writing so that I can refer back to it. I used to display my phone number, but got totally sick of the TWs, wankers (literally wanking), idiots, and abusers. There's a (seemingly large) sub-section of society who find it hilarious to phone up fat people and shout insults or tell them to kill themselves, and after a very short time I got sick of this and removed my phone number from everywhere. If men/people want to insult/abuse me, they can fucking pay for the privelidge :coolgirl:

I have an alert on central Birmingham, had it for about three months and I cannot recall one that has actually developed into a genuine profile. There seems to be a game afoot on adultwork and the business ethos of the site leaves a lot to be desired. Smiths is correct in that.

I know this has been discussed quite a bit but one of the possibilities of this site is to attract genuine punters and genuine escorts to provide an alternate route to AW where the escort and punter can have some confidence a genuine booking is being made.

TotallyTropical, its going to take time, that is why we are all trying to be as nice as possible. We all know that any nascent site will have its conflicts. Prejudices die hard. But from what I have seen, this site has a better chance than most.

If I do end up seeing a wg who posts on here, I'll be contacting them through AW as I have a different name on there. Not for any underhand reason but I think knowing you're both members of the same forum beforehand and a review on UKP will probably be forthcoming isn't the best start to a booking for either side.

I think this site provides a great platform for both punters and wg's to interact though.

No, uke very different to either

Aw, both parties generally have profiles with a feedback system

Ukp, most of the lasses on here aren't on ukp

Ukp has a no tout policy

So, very different to both.... innit

Well no it's not different

I have confirmed a booking on aw

I have confirmed a booking on ukp

I have confirmed a booking on uke

Innit


If you mire yourself in semantics and find it impossible to carry out simple tasks because you can not separate abiding by the rules of each on the public side by what is acceptable on the private pm side that's up to you

I'm taking bookings the same way I always do, via AW. I know many don't like it but it's just how I do things, I use it as my diary also so it keeps everything in one place. I have had several bookings initiated via here but they are all confirmed through AW.

I rarely have my number up but I give it out once the booking is confirmed on the day. There's very little point anyone having it prior to that as I never have it on me! :D Whereas AW emails come through to my personal phone so I respond to those within minutes usually.

Emails are no good in my area where 3G is patchy to say the least. I've also seen typos of phone numbers, so I want to establish that both parties can phone each other before it gets to a crucial time, or I'm driving through or to an area of zilch signal.

Initially I was a little concerned that Phoebe didn't show a phone number when I paid her a visit a few weeks ago, but I was really impressed with her prompt communication by AW email and it was as quick as a text exchange and the meet was set up literally within minutes.

I found it really nice and straightforward arranging my fantastic meet with Mandy last week.

Made the introduction, suggested some dates, swapped details and Bob's your uncle, Fanny's your Aunt (Raddy!). So much easier than booking through AW which is generally like pulling teeth in comparison. Highly recommended.

With the private messaging feature ( that you access through Inbox ) I have not noticed anything that lets you know if a sent message has been read or not.With Adultwork messaging you can see if someone has read your message or booking request and so know to move on if you get no response within a day or so of it being read rather than being left uncertain.Ideally I would prefer a friendly message declining me, to which I would take no offence at all , but at least knowing that it has been read would give the green light to try someone else without the risk of accidentally creating a double booking situation.

So if you'd contacted her on AW would it have been more complicated, and difficult to make a booking with her?

Possibly not but I do think so. The guys may or may not support me on the fact that emails on AW often get not read or deleted for whatever reason, and it appears that girls don't always log on there daily or perhaps only once a day, so responses take longer, which can be of little use when trying to organise something quickly.

It's also very impersonal, whereas UKE has a far more personal feel to it, and conversations seem to flow nicely and allow both parties to get a much better feel for the person they will be meeting.

Just my opinion.

So are you saying that Mandy would be slower at answering her AW emails, and that she gives priority to UKE PMs?

I answer AW emails as soon as I'm online (unless it's a one line 'ru available' one for which I might take a few minutes longer), and messages from UKE would be replied to in the same timescale. The only delay would be for general chit chat, or catch ups, which I might leave until later. There is no quicker way, apart from phoning me.

Emails on AW are faster than phoning me and messaging me on here, the only messages on there I ignore are from people who haven't read my profile or I would spend every day, all day talking to TWs.

Can't answer that one you'd need to ask Mandy. I did say.

Never said anything about higher priority here than AW did I?

My observation was that many girls spend a lot of time on here because of the social nature of the site, therefore my conclusion was such.
