Planned vs sudden urge

Do you plan out your visits in advance or just go whenever you get a urge?

I try planning in advance but sometimes I don't feel like it on that day.

Planning or making an appointment never served me well back when a couple busy spots were still in business, then I started to text with a couple favorites so as to walk in when they were next up. There were certain times during the day that a line of mongers were literally waiting in the lobby, I’m sure it pissed some off when I would walk in as they’re waiting and mamasan would immediately let me in. Then I changed things up with visits late late night, a few late visitors would walk in, but not like at peak times. In my experience or when I first began visiting FS shops, calling ahead and making an appointment, I recall having to wait regardless, seems the girls would serve someone even though I called ahead, i completely understand since it’s a cash business and a customer walks in cash in hand, so to speak, I scrapped that idea after a couple tries, I’ve also heard guys complaining to mamasan because they had an appointment, the provider is busy and he has to wait or take another girl, crying like a baby as a matter of fact.

If you are a proven regular appointments seem to work at least in the burb places. Seems the city is first come - money in hand vs maybe an appointment shows.
Im the combo of both. I get the urge then make the appointment - usually from the parking lot of the shop. I'm not a bell ringer.

Third option. You're such a regular customer they block out that time slot for you to have right of first refusal. This is the case for my regular legit place. I let them know in advance if I can't make the next appointment. If I can't make it last minute, I still pay for the slot, and make up the tip the next time.

I am more if an urge guy.

I see what type of experience I feel for, I make a call to see if the therapist/provider of that experience is available, then I head over. I hate taking the next best option as I don't like negotiating with myself.

I do partially plan new places that I'm curious about or old places that I haven't visited in a long time. I only go as far as making that place next.

One example of each is Jinlvzhou (review summary: Jin Li clone in every way, same owner), and Hyx Relax (review summary: same as two years ago, including pushing boundaries with a couple of the girls if you have game).

It depends how well you know the girl you want to see, and if she enjoys seeing you too. I usually plan a day or more in advance. It also works better if you can make the appointment with the girl directly so she knows when you're coming. That way she can get you on the schedule with the Emo, and not let you get bumped.

In theory sure. For most of us that's not happening. For me anyway I could not commit a day or more ahead. Most of these places go with "Bird in the hand" theory. It's unfortunate that many times when you are a very good customer they think you will be ok to wait. You can get taken advantage of easily. All Business - for the most part.

They believe you are a friend and you would understand waiting, which is counterintuitive to our way of thinking.

I try to get to know the Owner to get privileged status and I even let them pick the talent for a while. After a few visits, they try to keep me happy.

So maybe I'm the one stealing other people's appointments.

If you're inconsistent with your visits, chances are you could be. That's why I like to stick to one time slot.

I treat it like a spice rack. I don't use the same ingredients all the time, but I will always have a basic 5 in rotation. It gets expensive for the more exotic spices though.

I hear the quality argument on this board and there's some things I do avoid. However, there is a crossover point where a civie makes more sense to me.

Been at this on and off since late 1990's. For AMP visits, I have never planned. Never made an appointment. Always just walk-in. Also never been to the same parlor more than 5 times. Too many parlors around, along with the constant turnover with therapists. I rarely care about names either. Enjoy just working with who is at the parlor or walking out if I do not care much for what I see.

I generally do not show up without an appointment to any spa where I have previously visited. When I can, I keep 3-5 girls at different spas in rotation around here, that provide varying services, and then keep tabs on who is here and who is not. Then when I want to go on a day and see a gap in my schedule I start texting in the morning, see who responds and how busy the spa is looking. I generally do not have problems getting any appointment provided My girl isnt working when I call less than 30 minuets early, but I do not like bumping other guys, nor do I like my girl forced to go back to back. Thats the tricky part, to sort out if they are really no busy, when they say so. The best indicator there is the responsiveness on WeChat.
