    It’s fun watching people respond to Mocha’s “ignored” / hidden posts.

    It used to tell me there was an ignored post and I could click it to reveal the post if I wanted.
    That’s seems to have changed and now unless someone else references it....it’s like it never happened.

    I prefer the newer way.

    Thank you for guiding me to the ignore button. I found it and have joined you guys in ignoring him :)

    I think he looks spiffy in that suit!
    Certainly good enough to eat.

    Hoping someone can give me some advice. I'm interested in flying a guy out from LA to Denver for a weekend. Rate is 4k, and wants half down and hotel and flight booked which i understand. Little gunshy because previous encounter here went a little sideways but I'm really into him. Just want to be careful and am hesitant on sending him 2k on trust me. Doesn't really have any written reviews that I can find. Suggestions on how I can minimze my risk? Any feedback is appreciated.

    I'd say 25% down, or flight accommodations paid for would be sufficient. Half down seems pretty hefty.

    The risk-reward is working against you in this scenario......bigly. I would never do this, but that's just me. If you proceed on his terms, he better be damn good, but I do hope you have a great time.

    Yeah he's really hot and a sweet guy but I'm not sure that I trust him.
    He says that 1/2 down is the "industry" standard but idk. I just don't want to get jipped. But I do want to be fair and straight forward with him.

    Ummmmm......NO, it aint! I have flown guys (never having previously met) dozens of times. I have paid modest deposits maybe 2 times to settle a newbie's nerves about my seriousness, but certainly nothing approximating half the fee in advance.

    Thank you so much for the feedback. Seemed sketchy to me. I would like to meet the guy but don't want to be played either.
    Suggestions on a counteroffer? One person said 25% down.. other thoughts?

    You fly to LA to meet him.

    As a companion, I'd say If he is a companion with good a nature, then he wont want you to shoulder any anxiety about this. I think he would want you to tell him what amount if any you are comfortable giving as a deposit and he will likely acquiesce and you two will have a blast.

    To "BriGuy", i hate to say this now but the toothpaste may be out out of the tube, but if it were me in that situation, i may have asked the Forum members for their experiences/opinion of the escort in a general sense first to get a sense of the basic level of professionalism if you had questions about that? Then based on those responses perhaps private messaged some of the members asking if they would potentially "trust" that type of situation in general if you were worried about being jipped or scammed. Then move on to inquire about what is potentially a "standard" or "fair' market rate in the situation. Just IMO if i understood the situation correctly.

    This does seem like a better scenario for your first meeting. If things don't work out or there is no chemistry it's easier to walk away from it. And you'd have many available second choices to hire in LA.
     
  17. Hey BriGuy. I've provided round trip airline tickets up front. Have never been asked for a cash advance beyond that and I wouldn't send any. If a guy insisted on a cash advance I'd pass. If the guy is nervous, tell him you'll give him some of his fee when he arrives. I think both parties are somewhat nervous until meeting in person.
