I don't advertise my rate and you can't ask me either.

So what appears to be a nice young man is coming into my area. Good reviews, nice ad, rate varies.

 

I don't like "rate varies", or "ask me". I can afford the standard range of rates. But I want to know what I'm spending before I agree to it. So I send an email and ask how long he'll be here and his rates while he's here. He responds with the dates. I reply with "Sorry, but you missed the first question. Your incall rate while you're here?" His response?

 

"i think you have no class. move on walmart"

 

To say I was flabbergasted is an understatement. Has it become uncommon to ask the rate you're paying for a service prior to receiving the service? Obviously, I won't be hiring this charming individual, but thoughts?

My thought is you can do better. There are more fish in the sea, and some of them are quite professional.

I gotta tell you kevininsa..I got a good chuckle out of this. "Move on Walmart"? never heard that one before. First of all you should be calling and thanking the little bast*rd, for saving you some serious money. And if I am not mistaken, others here will know for certain, but I think he has been discussed before, and at least one if not more of his pics are fake.

 

Go to bed knowing that there are people out there that just have no business working with others. They need to be in a little room all be themselves shuffling papers around.

 

I called an escort tonight and the first thing he asked me via text was what race I was. Well that alone is a deal breaker, I wished him well and that was that...The way I see it, he saved me 400 big ones. moving on...LOL

Apparently this Guy has been "Working It" at least since 2005 going by his Past Reviews. According to his Reviews he always asked and got $350 from First Time Reviewer's?

 

I'm thinking he did you a favour and Saved you both Time and Money this dude sounds like $50 would be to much to be in the same room with him ;

 

Yes "Move On Walmart" has been used before along with "Move On KMart"

Who is that supposed to be in the first pic? It's certainly not the guy in the rest of the shots.

He isn't in your area either so don't feel bad. His rate that you will ask about will include flying him to you. Previous discussions about him say that the pictures used in the ad are not of this escort at all. He has always asked for 300+ an hour and if I recall his home base was somewhere in California, like LA. I think he lists himself as serving several other cities.

As a general rule, if I guy in his ad writes "Ask me" or "varies" for his rates, I move on at that point. I dislike very much plaing cat and mouse with the hourly cost - I am not haggling nor am I interested in guessing what he wants. My inquiry on price only comes up if I plan to see him for 2 or 3 hours and not one, and - knowing some guys DO (thank heavens) have the business saavy to have a difference in price for multiple hours - I ask im, "I see your price for an hours is $275. If I want to see you for 3 hours, would that be $825?" - leaving the door open for HIM to correct that and they often do with something like, "For 3 hours I only charge $500" or whatever.

 

As to his comment of Walmart -- that alone, while smarting at the moment said, would easily help me to move on to someone more mature and less into himself.

Hmmm, well the first picture is definitely not the same guy in the others. Plus he states he is 23, yet has reviews dating back to 2005 and probably earlier if you scroll down. I hate the lack of rates on an ad. I am neither wealthy nor destitute/cheap, I just know what my budget allows. I won't waste an escorts time if he is out of what I can afford.

 

Basically you were mistaken about one important fact, he is obviously not a nice young man. Move on to someone better, with a lot more class and manners.

The insult was a huge favor and good luck for you. Who knows how bad the experience would have been if you'd actually scheduled him? I always view failed attempts as money saved for a better selection when the next ad catches my eye.

I've only used one escort who wouldn't give his rates in advance. I didn't ask either. I just gave him what had been listed in previous Daddys reviews. However, I must admit that it was not a great experience and, perhaps, I should have been warned by this omission. I will know better next time. Thanks, OP, for reminding me. Also, I agree with Adrian. I never hangle. I do ask (now) about extended hour "discounts". But whatever he quotes is what I agree to.

here is an old saying that I learned doing retail sales in college from my district manager: "If a customer has to ask how much then he or she cant afford it." Now that is a common phrase and retail people will tell you that it has some validity to it. However oftentimes popular and common phrases are just not ALWAYS true. The richest clients I know and that I have spent multiple hours with and/or overnights involving dinner/theater / gifts etc almost ALWAYS ask the price. They got rich by being smart not stupid. I have ALWAYS posted my rates for 1 or 2 hours and overnight so clients do not have to ask. I post the rates as a courtesy to avoid them having to ask. However, the smart ones ask anyway just to confirm. I like that. no problem. http://www.rentboy.com/mikey9nola1 videos @ http://www.rentmen.com/mikeyusatop

I ALWAYS confirm the rate prior to an appointment. To skip this very important step would be very foolish, and open up an unnecessary opportunity for awkwardness.

Unfortunately the well reviewed (albeit a few first timers) escorts here are dropping the ball more frequently. A cursory look at his reviews here would lead you towards a hire, no?

 

I wouldn't have expected that behavior based on the reviews. Perhaps he was having a bad day or maybe he's burnt-out - he's been escorting for a while.

 

Were I In LA, i still might contact him and see if I I got the same behavior.

I am more inclined to think that someone who buys something without asking the price is a fool. Just because you can AFFORD something doesn't necessarily mean it's WORTH the price. (Unless you're about tmaking the STATEMENT that you can afford anything.)

I've worked in retail and never heard the phrase in that industry "If a customer has to ask how much then he or she cant afford it." It is neither common there nor would any salesman who cares about customer service consider it valid. The phrase is however attributed to JP Morgan about owning yachts so a universe away from the service we're talking about here. Foolhardy to commit without knowing the amount and if I was an escort and someone didn't ask, not sure I'd be too confident the meeting will come off at all or well.

I have been with Sean a number of times. He's a good looking guy but the pics (if they are him) are about 10 years old.

 

Timing probably is right on about the Age of the Pix's..His Reviews started about 7 Year's ago and the Pix's then could have been 3 Years Old already...

 

Nothing new about Old Photo's being used in New Ads is there!

 

Unfortunately discussions about Rentboy ADS Good or Bad only service those around here who bother to do Research... BUT it's better than just thinking with the LITTLE HEAD that most RB User's seem to do alot!

Escorts with a penis for a brain.

 

an old saying that I learned doing retail sales in college from my district manager: "If a customer has to ask how much then he or she cant afford it."

 

When I read ignorant bullshit like this, one has to ask (if one feels like wasting time), retail sales selling what? If this story is true, then your district manager was a 1st class asshole idiot.

 

Every smart customer knows a markup exists, no matter what item is up for sale. Some sellers have the audacity to inflate the markup beyond good reason. There is no way to make an intelligent decision on any purchase without asking the price and weighing your options.

 

Wealthy people don't become wealthy because they enjoy throwing money away. There is a reason why the vast majority of wealthy people consider themselves conservative.

 

Now that is a common phrase and retail people will tell you that it has some validity to it.

 

"Common" for whom? The über arrogant who don't have a pot to piss in? Who are these "retail people?" Idiots who work for minimum wage and cop an attitude because they're brainwashed into thinking they are selling a luxury item that supposedly changes a person's life and how dare you attempt to live without it? Please, Mikey, you're killing me here.

 

"i think you have no class. move on walmart"

 

If some escort wrote this to me, I would laugh so hard I might piss my pants. And I'd be extremely grateful I did not pursue this asshole any further. I would not write him again, but I would do as you did and post notice here. I would also make sure this guy never receives the pleasure of my company. One man's loss is always another man's gain.

Thanks for all the comments guys. It caught me so far off guard that a little part of me thought I had done something, knowing full well that I had not. I had actually sent the first email before I dug around for his reviews and saw some of his rates. As WnyBear said, not wealthy nor destitute, but I know what my budget will allow.

Thanks again!

Right on. A friend who works at Judith Lieber selling $7000 handbags and such reports that Trump et al. come in and invariably haggle like the devil. As they should, and are expected to.

 

What a nutcase hooker, refusing to name a price even when asked.

 

P.S. In case it needs clarifying, this is not to advocate haggling with your hooker. Making two separate points above.
