Over the years, I’ve had a lot of time wasted by men who have booked massage, then not turned up. It’s prevented me doing other things I needed or wanted to do and it’s prevented other men having a massage too.
I think you’ll agree, that this is disrespectful and unfair. It costs money and wastes the time spent in preparation. Nothing will give that lost time back.
The 50% deposit is the only way to ensure someone will definitely attend their appointment.
If a guy REALLY wants to have massage with me, then he’ll find a way of getting the deposit to me. Genuine guys never have issue with deposits.
