The coffee date is a one-time special "getting to know you" option that (1) gives us a chance to chat in a low-pressure setting, and (2) allows you to make an appointment and show that you can follow through. Think of it as a bridge to booking your first session.
Here's how it works: simply get in touch to ask if I'm available for a coffee date. We will pick a date and time. Be ready with a non-refundable $60 tribute payable at ko-fi.com/sandalwood; alas, I have had too many people set up a coffee date and then cancel or no-show at the last minute. Remember one of the purposes of this type of arrangement is to demonstrate that you will follow through on a commitment to a dominant.
At the time we agreed on, you show up, we greet each other. You pay for our coffees, then we sit and chat and get to know each other better.
