    Default What reviews do you read?

    I have just been putting down a very leisurely Monday evening, sitting at home perusing the reviews of some of the lovely ladies on here and just realised I have a pattern.

    I am not much of a reader to be honest, so if a lady has several reviews, anything from 20 upwards for example, I just noticed I tend to do the same thing on most ladies accounts.

    I tend to read maybe 4 or 5 reviews for a lady. Generally speaking I read the 2 most recent reviews, these more often than not are positive, then I would search for any negative reviews or N/A reviews that the girl might have. Finally I would glance through some of the other reviews and read maybe one or 2 more reviews from reviewers I know share the same interests as me.

    For example the lady in question might have 40 reviews, 36 positive, 2 N/A and 2 negative, a great strike rate in anyones language, but I am getting a 50/50 positive/negative feedback based on what has jumped out to me and the reviews I have read.

    Basically I am just wondering am I the only one to read reviews like this, and if more people do, does this not lend too much weight to negative reviews.

    Should we have more of a way of highlighting the really positive reviews so they jump out at clients just as much as the negative ones do?

    I am not sure how workable this is, but could we have something that pops up like the thumbnail of the escort. Something that you could hover the mouse over and a mini screen would pop up.

    What would be on that screen I hear you ask?

    Not sure to be honest, better minds than me will come up with great ideas Im sure, but maybe something like a table with marks out of 10 for certain thing.

    e.g
    looks - 9.5
    personality - 9
    prefessionalism - 8.5
    etc
    etc

    This would give a client the opportunity to get an overall feel for how the reviewer enjoyed his time with the escort without ploughing through some really long reviews(of which I am probably the most guilty of leaving).

    Just a thought and feel free to tweak it around any way you see fit.

    well i always read a few reviews before i see anyone.the more reviews someone has the more of a chance there might be a negative review in there but a few have a 100% strike rate which then becomes a no brainer. if a girl has 60 or so reviews but 5or more are negative then id have to think hard about seeing this girl,in saying that i saw 2 escorts who had very dodgy reviews but after chatting to them by pm and in the chatroom i took a chance and saw them and i was chuffed i did,two lovely ladies and i personally dont see how they could get a bad review but dif strokes 4 dif folks.i would usually read the last two reviews and then just scroll down and pick another review and scroll down some more and read another and if i was really happy with what i see then ill see the lady.but talking to them helps so much and you get a much clearer picture of what they are really like.i have to say any girl i chatted with in the chatroom or by pm and met them its been well worth it.i am a very easy client though ,,probably the easiest actually(god i might get slatted for that comment lol)i generely get it right though and also i follow a few guys who have also seen the girl im interested in so thats a fairly good guidance for me,,hope this helps my friend..

    It's uncanny takemehome, but I do almost the exact same!

    However, I'm even more lazy in that I only read reviews that are visualized on the screen - I don't bother scrolling down the page.

    I do check the visible negative or N/A reviews but read them with a grain of salt - and almost always check out the other reviews writen by the negative reviewer (to see if they are objective individuals).

    I pay great credence to reading reviews by other reviewers that I trust and/or share similar tastes to me. In fact one good review from one such individual can convince me positively to see a lady.

    Of course, reviews are only part of my choice process. The ladies photos are just as important (if not more important) to me (shallow but true!).

    So I actually don't think the system needs to be changed. The reality I think, is that the majority of clients probably don't even read reviews!!! (This is the impresion i've got from speaking to some of the girls). And it would also explain why there are so many girls advertising who don't have verified pics and don't allow reviews.

    your right ,i read the most recent few, but dismiss a rave review after an n/a or neg, why you say well ,these reviews were asked by an escort for a client or pimp to counter the neg,if there are alot of these one off rave reviews i move on

    My usual pattern is to scroll down the page and read reviews by trusted Reviewers first (I wont be able to do this any more of course), then I look at reviews by people I know and trust. Then I'll pick a random one or two others, including a bad review (if there are any). I tend not to pay much attention to reviewers with only one or two reviews to their name. I tend to focus on those with ten or more reviews written. A bad review from a member who has written a lot of reviews will tend to put me off, even if a girl has a number of good reviews.

    Overall, I have found the review system most helpful and I am one of the minority who found the trusted Reviewer badge useful when selecting an escort.

    I do pretty much the same. I try and get both sides of the coin and check reviews written by my 'trusted reviewers'. I tend to ignore once off reviews. It works for me. In fact I haven't had a bad experience in a long time. Of course there are plenty of well established escorts around all the time so there's no reason to get caught out really.

    Would love a word count facility on the review list page. Would prefer to read longer reviews. Hate the "nice girl, good service" review.

    Not looking for anything too explicit just a more detailed version of the date.

    I tend to do the same, read a few recent ones, any negs to see if there plausible, then look for guys I trust who might have reviewed. Also look at a few last time they were in my town just to check appartment etc was ok. I hate those 'nice girl....' reviews aswell, tell you nothing
