A Client's Mini-Guide to Companionship
It can be intimidating to approach a companion. You see a pretty picture online with verbiage that tugs at you mentally, emotionally, not to mention carnally.
First, please understand that a professional companion is like anyone else who charges for their time. The rates charges are based on a variety of factors that include risk factor, expenses, time spent cultivating connections. This is a similar rate structure that you would find with a lawyer, therapist or business consultant. Imagine, though, getting emails, texts and phone calls every day from people all saying the same thing " hi" or "whats ur rate?" It can be a little frustrating. lol
Now for a simple checklist to help you naviagate a successful and fulfilling meeting with a professional companion.
1. Due Diligence - Take a minute to read the ad not just look at the pictures. Google the phone number or email address. A well-estalbished companion will have at least one or the other listed. A well-established companion will have some sort of online presence. Remember, this is an investment in time, in which we all have the same amoiunt. I am much more impressed when a potential client contacts me, having done a little research then someone who just reaches out with a single word text.
2. Don't be fooled by language. Marketing is a cornerstone to selling. Don't let words like "verified" "vip" "mature" or "classy" distract you. There should be consistency from the ad to her personal website to your communication with the companion. If you are looking for a good conversationalist who has emotional intelligence, does her website focus less on revealing photos and more on drawing you in with emotion behind the words? A little common sense goes a long way.
3. The question of negotiation. Simply put - dont. A little empathy in business goes a long way. Remember, that we have seen and heard every line. Asking for a regular arrangement before we have even met, shouts "cheapskate. " It is best to not ask. As I mentioned in my introduction, there is a thought process to what we charge and there is a great deal of work and risk that goes into client acquisition and retention.
4. As far as communication - stick to the basics, initially. It is always best to show you are respectful of a companion's time by asking the right questions and introducing yourself as you would to anyone else socially or professionally. Your name first and last, is always helpful. Where you are located and would like to meet and your age is a good start. Be friendly and polite. If you aren't sure of her booking protocols, it is fine to ask. It is also fine to ask what the rate is for her time as long as you don't write a long email of your wants and desires.
5. Remember the golden rule - treat others the way you want to be treated. A professional companion who invests money into advertising, branding, professional photos and communication, genuintely enjoy building relationships, no matter how peripheral they may be. We are no different than anyone else you would interact with socially or professionally. If transparency is an issue for you, then seeking out a comopanion who you will find a fulfilling experience with, may be a waste of time.
Have fun and be safe!
