  1. Am I too old for the hobby?

    If it weren't a chore we wouldn't have to pay.
  2. Do BJ's cure colds?

    Sounds like snake oil to me. Fasting and rest usually works pretty well.

    The first one was contacted through Eccie, where I have more reviews. I didn't know I needed to switch to TOB until after I saw her. I'm not sure why the others saw me, I believe they were just contacted on here. I don't believe I've insulted anybody, but it seems like some people here feel like I have. Nah, you're not being an asshole. It's good to be extra suspicious of people, especially on here. Or maybe I'm just an asshole and can't recognize other assholes because of that.

    It's working now. Now that the mechanic is here to take a look at it. I'll bring it back to you when it starts going haywire again. Thanks!

    Well that hurts my feelings

    Never mind, I think I just assumed you were attacking the "mechanic" position. Yeah maybe just not saying too much at first and letting her ask the questions would help. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!

    Maybe it's that part of the approach. Although, I suspect the difference in your results could likely be explained by the fact that you didn't immediately ask for rates. It's possible that most of them don't like being treated like a mechanic, but I'll consider changing that part of the approach if changing other, seemingly more likely, causes doesn't seem to make a difference.

    Lol, I guess that's a good point! I kind of like it, though. There are some parallels between this hobby and alcohol prohibition that it's meant to allude to.

    I don't understand how that approach wouldn't be appreciated. Imagine how easy and efficient this process would be from their end if we were all like this.

    I'm going to keep treating them like a mechanic, though, because that's what they are.

    I just texted one that I had texted last week, letting her know that I could send her my references before getting her rates, if that would help. She mentioned that I only had three reviews. I think asking for rates in literally the first text message and only having three reviews are probably the two main problems here. I bet waiting a bit to ask for rates will help and getting more reviews on here should make this process as easy as it used to be.

    Ah, I didn't think to look at the bottom of the page. It looks like it's working now, though. Thanks!
  13. Not responding to texts

    Thanks for all the advice! I'll put it all together and try it out.
  14. Not responding to texts

    I probably should have been more specific. I never hear back from them, no matter how long I wait for a response.

    I'm not sure. I didn't think that I had pissed off any of these women, but maybe I'm wrong about that. I send them a message on here at the same time that I send the text and mention the other in each. I figured that the references on my profile would work, but I might could try offering to manually provide more, if that might help. I'll try drawing out the process a little more to see if that helps. It would figure that that would make things worse, but maybe not, it's worth a shot.
