    Shauna never returned voice mails. On rare occasion she actually answered the phone. However, she always returned my emails. I usually gave her a choice of future dates, and she always chose one of them in her replies. If I recall correctly, she seemed to check and respond to her emails around 8:30 AM.

    Hotpuppy,
    You are absolutely correct in stating that the women are not a purchase. I tend to see it as a tribute. A thank you dozen roses. Without the roses. And if any of them know me they know I'm a pain in the ass but behind closed doors, a sweetheart.
    And you may be correct in stating that it's a buyer's market. I hope to put this out there to encourage two things. First, to the providers that we are people and that good customer relations is important. If they want to advertise and expect us to share our good reviews and then should be a little more accesible and responsible....including Shauna, who in my opinion could grace the pages of Playboy and Penthouse today! Second, to see if I am the only one who gets fustrated with the process. Obviously I am not!
    Though there are very valid points here. Patience and persistence will probably pay off. Especially for those worth the wait. For me, alas, I believe I am going to retire from the hobby awhile or at least until the market turns around. Thanks.

    Correct!

    In fact she pretty much tells you she does not return calls as to emails do not be generous Zeus if she returns 10% your lucky! If you continually call Shauna especially early and often you can connect with her easily. As to the rest of the indies in Long Island- just be persisitant, take the bull by the horns and ye shall see some results I guarantee it!

    SHAUNA!!!

    She might be the absolute worst at e-mails, and I've e-mailed them all. You leave a mesg. on her VM and maybe she calls you back 20% of the time. I don't mean to dwell on her but, you put her name out there and she is notorious for not returning or taking days to return e-mail and phone calls. Then again when you are seeing shauna, you have to expect that type of ditzy personality... It's one of the things i liked about her, it's her own personal type of GFE.

    Sunshine,
    You have probably sealed your fate on this one. One thing you might want to consider in the future should you choose to try and contact an independent escort: its not really your dime(BTW an apology loses alot of power if its followed closely by a scolding) until she [ or you] walk through the door, and then it would be a mistake to treat any of them as a "purchase"- good client behavior has been discussed ad infinitum here and elsewhere. Youmight also want to consider that at present, it is a "sellers"' market and they can afford to be choosy( especially if anything in your introductory attempts was at all off putting). I agree that good customer relations dictates that a response, whether negative or positive, is called for. But, now, out of your frustration, you have thrown down a gauntlet( and by narrowing it down, probably pissed them off to boot). If you have decided to forego indies, why bring this up at all?
    take care HP

    Let's not go into particulars.... two of the names that you mentioned started this in the first place.
    But I am still curious do you agree with my sentiments or disagree? I would trust your opinion and insight. I have read your commentary and you seem to be a very levelheaded woman. Are the new breed apathetic or what?

    i am not sure whom you are but...

    i got no email from sunshine 40 so it must not be me because i would have responded directly and explained my situation.. best of luck..

    however
    you should try long island beth ,b2c, possibly blondie or cecelia all lovely girls or go to julie's , shauna travels but you can catch her every so often..all are bright kind pretty.....
    and quite quick to respond if given an appropriate introduction and some form of reference..
    could it be possibly that your intro letter to them was too strong and seemed scary or perhaps to vauge and seemed like LE?
    What you write into an intro can tend to tell the fate of a letter....
    best of luck...
    tip: when you write try to be friendly and informative and give a few ideas about what you hope to find in your date experience with out being graphic... in other words smile on screen.. wink

    Over the past two months I have e-mailed a dozen indies. Only two or three have responded.

    I am new to the board and just wanted to pose a question for all. Is it me or has making arrangements with an indie become nearly fruitless. I have taken some of your reviews and comments and attempted to contact a few of the indies you mention in your conversations. It seems to me or maybe I am just imagining it that they take a long time to respond to emails. Then you can leave messages for them and they don't return the calls or make it nearly impossible to set up a date.
    I personally am done trying with the all of the indies, except for Shauna. Damn, she's in Florida and more accessible than the women in New York. They charge more and unfortunately for them I therefore expect more from them. At least in the area of professionalism and accessibility. For me I am going to stick with JB's. At least I know when they're busy, they're busy! I am sorry to those providers that I am offending with this statement but I'd like to remind them that it's my dime. And if none of them ever talk to me again because of this post, WHO CARES! Sometimes you gotta say to all the virgins’ "thanks for nothing". I just don't feel that they are worth the aggravation they cause at the rates they charge.
    I know that in this instance I may be alone, and that's fine with me. Maybe what I am just trying to accomphlish here is to remind some people who is the client. Although I'd like to see if anyone else sometimes gets as fustrated as I do. Thanks.
