Is this some odd random thing? The fortune teller of London just became my contact after her colleague in New York already was my contact. Some people seem to get a shoemaker, barber, etc. as their first contact. I think this gives them great advantage right from the start.

The least these damned fortune tellers could do is not to charge me 20 bucks whenever I want to consult the fates.

Yes, it's random who becomes your contact and when, though it is at I think 150,000 experience points, if you don't have both in the city you're in, the chances of a new contact are increased.

Sorry, my brain obviously hadn't woken up yet when I typed that - you can't choose your contact directely, but you can influence who becomes your contact and/or what type of contact you get first by quitting favors for certain townies (those who are in the 'not wanted for my contact' category). Although quitting favors can help infleunce your contacts, it won't let you get two PE contacts in one city.

To clarify, you cannot ever have 2 PE contacts or 2 Hint contacts in the same city. If your first contact in a city is PE, your second will be a hint giver, and vise versa.
