What makes a regular a regular? A reliable repeat schedule.
Regulars are people I trust that get special treatment over others. Generally, regulars see me on a certain schedule—every Tuesday afternoon or Saturday night, the last day of the month, or every other Wednesday. They are reliable, and so they special deals. Maybe there’s a discount. Maybe there’s a premium service special. As the saying goes, I make up the difference in volume, so it’s a win-win situation.
I make up the difference in volume
For example, say I agree to see a certain regular every Sunday morning and he gets a 30-minute outcall at an incall rate. Not only isn’t this rate for everyone; it’s not even for him unless he remains a regular.
We all know that things happen, and maybe he misses a week—or I do. That’s OK. I hope that I still get something on top of advance notice, but that’s another story. If he needs to reschedule once and again—maybe shift to the next day or so—, that’s fine.
it’s a win-win situation
Just to be clear, regulars don’t need to see me on the same day at the same time. They just need to be reliable, so I can count on regular and timely donations. That’s why regulars get special deals. But if you become an irregular, the special offers disappear.
Being a regular is a two-way thing. You may want to be a regular, but I may not be ready for another regular. I may want you to be a regular, and you may not want to be one. No big deal. Don’t take it personally. If it was personal, we wouldn’t be meeting at all.
