On The Topic I too get frustrated when phone calls and particuliarly emails are not returned from providers. I just write them off the list. I also find alot of them forgeting appointments. The solution, I do not make appts far in advance. I maintain a list run down that list and whoever responds first I see. I have found that the last minute is best. And if I cannot score, there is Julies or Kamasutra. Gents, its a business for them lets not forget it. Its a pleasure for us and I know we wont forget it. What bothers me the most is that when women retire, they continue to tease via emails and posting . We do not know whether or not they are working or really retired. Some friends feel that some of them have drastically raised their rates and only see guys at 500/hr or more. What doesnt bother me is a woman retiring and keeping a below the radar appearance. Keeping old rates for old clients, no matter what she charges new clients. Or, an out of town girl that is retired that comes to NY to see only regulars. As long as emails and phone calls are answered all is well.
