When I search RBs its probably slightly different to more established ladies as I am trying to build a client base, but I scan then all up to a couple of months away, putting my setting at a 30 mile radius ad that's how far realistically I can travel but usually ignoring those outside Bristol ot Bath. You can order then by date or proximity, I think, and the max range for distance is 99 miles so if its a lot further, they have clearly changed their postcode and are probably a PG scam! Only legit time I have done that is when looking for longish bookings in London as I visit there sometimes..
A selection of RBs appears on the same page as the search criteria setting - I ignore these as they are for all over the country, not looked too closely so not sure if they are ending soon or whatever...
I imagine full time busy ladies rarely look, only of they have a cancellation... Part time ladies could do either, suddenly fancy working or lining up bookings for days they know they will work, I've tried both
I dunno, I do use them and have had a couple of successful bookings from them but one of my almost-regs said he's stopped bothering so maybe it just isn't really worth it unless you have a lot of patience or a specific kink you are trying to get catered for... Or if you are trying to tempt a lady you have your eye on into lowering her fees!! I really do pay attention to what is said and write long replies (surprise surprise
) but I've no idea if this is the norm or not..? Have to say, am bothering less and less these days, it does take bloody ages to search, sift and write a message - now I know how you guys feel only you are dealing with thousands of us not a handful or so!!
One tip for people looking for overnights - the criteria you can change include your age (wtf), postcode, proximity and price per hour. The default for the latter is £75, meaning that most overnights will be omitted unless you are offering over £800 total or a very short duration overnight! I always change it to a tenner per hr
not cos I'm a skanky ho haha but because i did once see a guy offer a rate for 48 hrs in a spa hotel - would have missed that easily and I did consider bidding but decided too long to spend with a stranger (overnight is prob pushing it tbh).. The point is though, I don't want to miss a great offer for an atypical booking because of the price settings. I'm nit sure how this helps you guys but bear in mind, if placing a RB for an overnight, you may not get many takers if girls don't alter the default price per hour... I made that mistake the first few searches I did and £75 looks reasonable if you are looking to drop your rates by a little so I bet many WGs (real ones, not PG scammers) don't alter it. That might help some of you... Maybe best to just find a lady you like and make her an offer, I find it hard to believe so many WGs would srsly block you for a reasonable, non-pisstake offer, especially with Christmas coming up and all those Christmas mums flooding the field...
Sorry that probably doesn't help you JRC, and sorry you have had no success..I honestly had no idea RBs cost money til I came to UKP, pretty shit!!
