tazman1002001 - Thanks for letting me know. I had already left negative comments about AFA, but it just annoyed me that I couldn't leave a negative rating as well.
I give up mate, please don't shoot!!! :-) It's probably worth mentioning that I'm a newbie and this was my first punt. I naively just looked at AW and decided to try someone who seemed to have a good rating with plenty of good reviews. I made a booking, got a quick reply with more details on where to go and thought 'Wow that was straightforward' and turned up all bright eyed!!!
It was only after my 'encounter that didn't happen' with AFA that I came across UK Punting and saw the light after reading all the reviews. Personally, after my experience I couldn't care less about how wonderful an encounter with her is. And although many punters persist in the hope that someday that can visit that magical parallel world that she lives in and achieve nirvana - I certainly would not bother! I know it was only one time and many have had to put up with worse, but that's their choice. Once is enough for me as I am not desperate enough to run after someone who couldn't be bothered to cancel and beg her to please take my money and lead me to the Promised Land...
On another note... I thought I'd read a number of reviews before picking my next punt and finally decided that this 'Marmalade' chap seems to know his way around Edinburgh and went through his reviews and came up with a shortlist. After checking availability at short notice I made an appointment with HeatherPleasure (https://www.adultwork.com/HeatherPleasure
) and saw her. Having read the review you posted on Heather I went in knowing what to expect and I have to say she didn't disappoint!! Her sensual GFE approach may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am glad that she was my first punt (well the first actual punt given the crap AFA experience can be forgotten!). So thanks for that mate! :-)
