When you go punting, there are certain things that you should and shouldn’t do. However if you are a new punter, you might not know what these things are. You could be new to punting, or perhaps you don’t have a lot of experience in it. If that is the case, you could be at risk of making these punter mistakes.
Most mistakes are made perfectly innocently. We aren’t aware of what we are doing when we make the mistakes. But even then the mistakes might not be as simple as we thought they could be, which is why you should educate yourself. Here are the punter mistakes you need to avoid making!
Skimming the profile
When you want to go and visit an escort, you tend to stop thinking logically. You get so excited about the possibilities that you’ll find a profile you like the look of, check out the number, and give them a call.
A lot of first time punters don’t bother reading the profile of the escort they want to visit. They assume that they know what the profile says and that they don’t need to read it… but you do. There is a lot of useful information in the profile. If you can look beyond their sexy pictures, you can look at their statistics. These will tell you thinks like hair colour (which might not be the same as the pictures if it has changed recently) and height, which isn’t always clear from photographs.
You can also see their working hours (when is best to give them a call for a date), their rates (which you’ll need to know in order to turn up with the right amount of money) and other details. Some might ask that you tell them where you found their profile when calling, while others state that they aren’t available on certain days.
By reading their profile you get all of this information before you call. It stops you from making a fool of yourself by asking questions you could already have the answer to.
Turning up late and without fee
You might have absolutely no idea where you are going for your escort date. This is perfectly fine. What is not fine is not bothering to find out until the moment you leave the house. It could be further than you expected, or perhaps difficult to find. Even if you do know where it is, you could encounter difficulties getting there, such as traffic or road closures.
Research before you set off to make sure your route is clear. If it isn’t, give yourself more time to arrive. If you find that you are going to be late, let the escort know. Give them a call to keep them informed. One of the biggest punter mistakes is to not contact the escort, as they will then assume you are a no-show and won’t take any further bookings from you.
You should also turn up with the correct fee. Take the time to stop off at a cash point to get the right amount of money for them. It is better if you have change, as many escorts don’t keep change on them. But don’t turn up on time and tell them that you need to go and get their fee. They might simply tell you not to bother as you are wasting their time.
Haggling on price
Escorts set their fees. They have them clearly displayed on their profile for you to see, and some will confirm the amount when you make the booking. One of the most infuriating and frustrating things for clients to do is to try and haggle on the price.
This is one of the worst punter mistakes you can make, and it is also surprisingly common. They might say things like “is that the best price you can do?” or “well this escort only charges so much”. They might even try saying things like “if I skip the shower, can I get a discount?” or “if I leave you a good review, can you knock a bit of money off?”
The answer is going to be a firm no. Haggling is going to instantly turn the escort off, and if you try it, you are probably going to be shown the door. Not only that, but the escort may then add you to their blacklist, making a note that you are a haggler and that they shouldn’t take bookings from you.
Haggling suggests to the escort that you have no respect for them. They have set the fees for their time and companionship, and the first thing you should do is understand that. Don’t haggle. Instead accept the fee and pay it. You’ll find that your booking goes a lot smoother!
Common punter mistakes
It is acceptable to make mistakes sometimes. However, if you make any of the above punter mistakes you might find yourself in for a bad time with an escort. They may simply cancel the booking, or they might decide to not take any further bookings from you. Definitely not what you want!
