How do men refer another man to an escort, or how does a man ask a friend for a referral? Is it like suggesting a mechanic or a tailor? Is it done with a wink or a knowing nod? Guys, I await your comments.

My phone rang; the caller went off on a soliloquy before giving his name and that Gavin referred him. We talked for a bit or maybe I should say he would ask a long rambling question and I’d answer yes or no. Finally he asked for a date, two days actually in Paris.

In taking a new client I have a certain protocol that must be followed that starts with filling out a form on my website giving me basic information about the client and what their likes and dislikes are. As I tried to direct my new friend, Will is his name, there, he kept asking why? Not disagreeably, but in the manner of a curious child. Finally I told him that he just needed to fill it out or no date.

The next day I received the email of the form completed, every question, which has never happened. Usually I get the required stuff that I need for identification and maybe that he’s interested in dinner. There are four boxes for free form text, in three he wrote haikus and the fourth was a one hundred and fifty word essay in rhyme! Needless to say this guy had my interest.

Usually clients seeking a tour guide with benefits have never been to Paris, but Will has been here numerous times, but never as a tourist. A Jack Black look alike with twinkling eyes and an impish grin.
It was a fun two days.

I rather not do referrals. For girls I'm seeing, I'll be jealous. Worse, two friends keep seeing the same girl would be bad.

I did ask for referrals myself, for the easy way out without doing homework. I try not to give referrals because it depends very much on personal taste.

But then girls like referrals - they assume that you hang out with someone like yourself - clean, gentle, similar disposal income, etc, etc. But that's why I try not to refer. I don't want girls to let their guard off just because I know the person. And if things don't work out, I don't want my friend blaming me for doing favors to my girl.

Kim, I don't do referrals. My private life is private.

I am so pleased that you saw this client, Kim, and I am pleased that you enjoyed him. I know you are moving on, and I hate to see you go. I have been reading your blog for some time now, and I think you are wonderful.

I hope you two will still stop by even if I'm out of the biz. I promise to try to keep it interesting.

I'll admit liking referrals. Its not so much that the guys will be alike, but that if the client shows good judgement that hopefully will include who he refers. The companion still needs to do her do diligence.

PM: wonderful is difficult to live up to. :)
