OK. I would like to know how other girls deal with time wasters?
What qualifies as A time waster? Do you block them straightaway or do you give them a second chance?
What tips do you have for spotting them?

It depends, some are easy to spot and some aren't and sometimes I might get it wrong. I don't display my phone number which held cut some out but that might not work for everybody.

One tip though: don't block anybody on AW. It doesn't hide your profile from them (the way that blocking on Facebook works for example) so they can still send a booking request to you and the first you know is when they leave you bad feedback.

I split them into two groups: phonecallers and no-shows.

Phonecallers: there are normally hints, like mentioning their cock size, going into too much details, stammering and stuttering etc. I always ask for a text to confirm 45-60m before the booking time. The vast majority I think are TWs don't text. In 15 months, I've only had 4-5 confirm and then not show up. If they contact me again I'll usually mention what happen previously and see what they say. If they mess me around again, they're saved as a TW in my phone book.

No-shows: pretty much the same, but I'm harsher. I do understand that sometimes e.g. phone batteries die, but 99% of the time I think they just chicken out or have booked Plan A and Plan B; if the latter, I don't understand why they just can't at least text to say they can't make it.

I've never had a TW become a decent client or even show up once, that's for sure.

What she just said above me. Someone who books and doesn't turn up without informing you is never going to turn into a good client so they get saved as no show and I don't answer on the few times I picked up by mistake they swore they had never even called before let alone book saying I must have got the number wrong even though it is saved from their calls. I have got very good at spotting them though hence if booked in advance I need a call on the day at a set time early morning to confirm so when they don't I can easily fill those time slots

I have read a lot of posts and its time wasters this and time wasters that. How big a problem is it for you ladies? Is it an annoyance or the bane of your life? Do you think they do it on purpose? Are there people who get a kick out of messing you around? Seems strange and exceptionally rude to me! It does seem that your line of work does attract a percentage of either undesirable individuals or possibly the mentally ill......

For me it's an annoyance. Some get a kick out of it I think, like "OMG I just spoke to a prossie, teehee" like school kids and some just want to go into massive detail on fantasies to the extent that you know they're just looking for material to wank to (hint: porn is freely available) which is easy to distinguish from those that want to clarify a specific scenario or services for a meeting.

Example, an e-mail I got today: "Can I just check if you have big pussy lips? Can you take anal even though I'm 10 inches long? Will you deep throat without gagging? Explain EXACTLY how you can squirt all over my face for me.

Not even a hello :unknown:

Fluffy sod

I'll offer a gesture not whole fee because in turn if a wg cancelled in a reasonable time frame I wouldn't expect nothing

The gesture is a token if apology not to cover the hour

You don't cancel a meal reservation and still pay for the meal do ya

Oh I missed this the first time. I don't mind if people need to cancel - you can get stuck at work or come down with an illness or something, though I won't believe you when you tell me you fell off a mountain in London. I appreciate as much notice in cancelling as possible but wouldn't expect anything to compensate me (certainly not to the value of!) and would still accept future bookings from you.

Yeah I know, but it was real last minute job and its how I felt at the time, I know fluff fluff blah blah, but I felt after Id done the right thing and thats that.
Dunno if Id do it again but I did feel bad about it till I coughed up and Im not really your softy but it happened.
Now with all these comments Im feeling that Ive treated her like a charity case...ahhh, the madness...take me away :)

Well I'm sure she appreciated it and it's a lovely gesture but we do get that things happen. If you let us know and act sincere then we won't hold it against you.

Yes, it's a huge annoyance, just to keep answering your phone, especially if they ask questions that all the answers to are on your profile and/or website. I mean some of them even ask the basics like your age and whereabouts you are. Some are just genuinely nervous, but I'd guess it's a small minority.

Re. no shows, some men seem to think we all sit about in full make-up and stockings waiting for the phone to ring. I also do another job, so specifically shower, tidy up, put make-up, change etc. for every booking. To waste up to an hour doing so and then the client not turn up is extremely vexing.

It's interesting how many ladies on this thread and others have said they specifically don't show their phone number on AW. When some punters also specifically refuse to contact escorts who don't! I've never seen why it's a problem to send a short email myself, especially if they're not looking for a same day booking.

I was under the impression we could block bookings also?
View attachment 205
The blocking feature simply serves as a 'blocked from viewing' feature. So the blocked punter can still send emails, booking requests and feedback only but we won't see the emails or booking requests, they get automatically deleted. Which is a pain in the arse if you get bad feedback from a punter who you've blocked, as without the booking request, you can't respond

I can understand those that are looking for a last minute booking will need a number and I may well lose business through not displaying one but I'm fine with that if it cuts down on time wasters. If you're booking in advance then I don't understand why e-mail is an issue at all. I check mine regularly and respond quickly, as I'm sure all the other genuine WG's do too.

I think it's a bit unfair to say that people that stutter are more likely to be a time waster . I stutter due to nerves , but I most certainly am not a time waster

I didn't take as a slur against people who stutter - more a case of highlighting how speech traits may indicate someone is just phoning for a thrill

I can stutter or sound different to my normal self when I'm nervous too Mr B

I can also say the wrong thing - I'm sure in one occasion I uttered " oh my god that is fucking awful" mind blow job!!!!
I meant "awesome"!!!!!!!

Really ? So even if you click block bookings from the person, it still allows them to book but you can't see because there blocked? If that's right, that's ridiculous

Time wasters aren't always immediately obvious but prove themselves over time. I keep all my correspondence for reference which helps to show how many contact me always talking about booking but never actually doing so.... often sending the same email time and time again asking the same question's, question's that are on my profile....... it gets boring.

I thought I was pretty good at spotting them also, but since starting work in Glasgow I've had so many no shows its unbelievable most during weekends. I've now stopped working weekends and just about cut out all timewasters, of course a few have slipped through.
I can't believe some of them though, they must think we were born yesterday.
I recently had a guy that booked at lunch time 3 different days during 1 week and cancelled all bookings half hr after he booked with excuses like "my boss making me stay through my lunch. Really sorry" I then blocked him as I had a feeling he was talking crap, so he called using a different number thinking I wouldn't know it was him lol ,of course I knew straight away but he insisted hed never contacted me before. Ha blocked!
I just don't understand what they get out of doing that.

From now on they get no second chances if my gut tells me the taking the piss then they will be blocked.

I pride myself on not being a time waster but from the other side of the fence I've had WG's time waste on me twice, one of which I had to drive 40 mins... Called a few times and waited 20 before I gave up! I'm sure it's far less common for the girl to be the time waster but it does happen!

Just a cheap thrill for them ..... after all there are those that talk the talk but can't walk the walk.

That's not acceptable..... by all means things can happen at short notice leading to having to cancel on both sides but to not even have the courtesy to explain as it does indeed work both ways.

It depends, if some guy has been franticly calling and letting me know how the traffic is going but ultimately gets stuck in traffic just ouside of MK and thus no longer has time for the booking because he only had half a hour booking in the first place then Ill give him another chance, if he had a couple of hours booked but wont come for 90 minutes or an hour instead then Id class that as timewasting. If a guy just randomly no shows then I dont care what his excuse is nowadays, I block him immediatly if I have not met him before. If its a guy who I have met before though I always give the benefit of the doubt but if he starts to do it regularly I will just tell him to call me at the time to see if Im free from now on, sometimes people change jobs and where once they were reliable they become unreliable, the fact that they always used to show up though tells me its not deliberate.

If a newbie lets me know ten minutes before the booking that he is stuck in a traffic jam 45 minutes away then I block him, he knew 20 minutes before that he was still too far away to make the booking on time but didnt bother to let me know.

It all comes down to manners, if someone has none then they can bugger off, if they have them then Ill be more accomadating.

What I do not find acceptable is for a guy to book for example an hour then arrive late only to strop off if I can no longer do a full hour because of his own personal lateness. You booked the time, its your fault that you cant have the full time you booked not mine, be the gentleman and have the forty five minutes or half an hour instead as that way my time has not been entirely wasted. Those who strop off even they have caused this situation are immediatley blocked, they may not have been able to help the traffic but they can decide wether to do the decent thing or not.

If you walk out on me because you imagined my face different to how it is in real life then I block, Im not responsible for your imagination and whilst Im not miss world Im certainly no munter either. Often these guys phone back at a later date to try to get another booking, guys who no show ALWAYS phone back at a later date to try to get another booking.

Timewaster, mmmm its difficult to pin point with timewasting as oppose to no showing. Someone who repeatedly makes a booking yet always cancels, complete timewaster. Those who phone on private numbers, timewasters, those who got my phone number from the internet but suddenly cant use that same internet to look at my website are usually but not always timewasters. Someone confirming services or phoning up because they want a chat before they book is not a timewaster

I block straight away if someone doesn't show up, does show up but shows up late without letting me know (I've already got changed and started gaming) and if someone repeatedly cancels our bookings on the day (usually three strikes and out). I have no problem with cancellations, we all have things crop up, I have had to cancel on a few occasions. I just like to know what's going on.

I block any callers who ask a million questions whilst heavy breathing down the phone. I don't mind the what will you be wearing question, I would probably ask that myself. I do block straight away if someone asks if I work alone and asks personal questions. I also block anyone who sends a text and some time later sends a '???' Message. That really pisses me off !

It comes and goes, you dont get them for ages the over a matter of days they are suddenly the bane of your life all over again. YES there are many who do it on purpose. Ive texted a guy in the past many a time who is 5 minutes late only to get a shirty text back saying they wouldnt touch a prossie with a bargepole, saying the SUDDENLY read my UKP review (yeah right), they dont need to pay for it etc which means they never intended to come in the first place, they deliberatley made fake bookings. These guys always without fail try to make a booking a couple of months later, when I compare their numbers with other escorts they almost always already have them on their wanker list too. Its how some guys get their entertainment.

Time wasting AW emails, I get between 5 and 10 a day. It tends to come in bigger waves sometimes.

If I had my phone number up I'd be getting texts all day and a fair few pointless calls. Not worth having it up when I don't work short notice. The 'wen u free' and 'meet now'messages get very old.

I had some tosser put an advert into gumtree with my name and phone number once, described me as 18 size 8 etc, phone rang off the hook till I asked someone where they got my number after they asked me to verify I was really just turned 18...they told me about the ad, had to call them all back and say they had been duped and whereas it was my name, hair colour and number the rest of the description was extremely wrong...totally malicious, almost turned me into a bait and switch without me even knowing it...i class that as timewasting, my time and the punters time

There are so many categories I don't know where to begin.

I've had guys emailing me, called, using forums saying they need to ask questions, for years at a time...........sometimes they'll tell you who they are, sometimes they let you guess.

Men who say they are on their way, on their way, in traffic, on their way whilst you sit there for 2 hours (very rare that there are any major hold ups in the area), sometimes they'll say they 5 minutes away, just around the corner on foot, and that goes on for half an hour.........phoning pretening to be other people, using different phone numbers and then coming back to the first phone number, always to book then cancel or no show. Asking in depth questions over and over. Saying they are busy, can't make a booking, really want to see you..........for months and years.

Text or phone for a booking, with definite time, then claim to not know your rates, location.

Had one of those phone, puts phone down, 2 minutes later "my town" text last night.

"Ru working" text/emails.
Had a few "address please" last week, not only had they not read that I'm outcall only, they then seemed to think I was in a city 2 hours away.

Another type who think I'm offering dating, who want a relationship which will start from even before the booking.

Sometimes clients I have seen once or twice have become timewasters, or at least unreliable. Car breaks down or some other disaster happens just about every time they book.

I'd guess some of these will be unreliable people, some will be TWs and some will be genuine.

Stammerers, not an issue if they ask questions same as anyone else, most genuine nervous enquirers will read details very carefully, so that they have plenty of information before speaking and not need to go over services in detail.
