What I would like to say in regards to calls and texts, for every man on here that is experienced in the world of this industry, there are many that are not. There are quite a few that do not even have a punting phone. As such, even though I have most of my regulars saved on my phone, I answer the phone as if I have no idea who is calling. This is not to seem aloof, but you never know who is actually using the phone. There has been a couple of times that I have answered the phone to either silence or a woman's voice. The last thing I want to do is answer "Hello my darling Dave, I can not wait to see you" and then find out it is "Dave's" wife.
The same goes for texts. In fact, I have had a few people say that my texts are fairly abrupt, but they understand when I tell them why.
