It ain't gonna happen Daffodil...
bm_99 joined UKP in January 2012, not 2013...his first post 9 January 2012, asking for advice about his "first punt"...still no first punt 14 months later, and yet still asking basic questions like those in the OP? He's not a punter, and never will be. Doesn't have the balls (possibly literally as well as metaphorically)..
@bm_99. Ignore this what I am about to say if you want. But it is strong advice, well intended, and definitely in your best interests.
Before my first punt. I studied like crazy for someone to see. It was a nerve wracking. Typing that first email via AW my hands were literally shaking. And it was a, nah can't send it, type again, delete nah can't send it.
Finanally 3am I finally was like sod it and just clicked send. For a brief moment i was like 'jesus what have I done' And that was an email requesting a booking with someone 3 weeks in advance
All in all I got totally messed over and on the day I felt randy so I just looked on AW seen a random girl I liked, subbed to her PG, phoned her and booked. I seen her in 2hrs from the call.so my advice is
just say to yourself one day. That is it going to do it. Do not do any of this booking in advance tosh. Find an agency in your area (its less daunting phoning a third party for the booking than phoning the girl herself). And do the booking.now all these worries
just go to the booking. If you make a tit of yourself all you have done is lost £100. And you will never need to see this girl again.
A good many of my punts I have never even had sex. I have just basically chatted naked with the girl and that is great. So do not get worries of what if this or that.
Just do the booking.
Get a calender. And a Pen and put a large X on a day. And stick to it as that is the day you do your first booking and do not deviate from the plan no matter what side tracks or anything. Book the girl 10pm at night if a load of stuff happens during the day.
