I've been negotiating recently with a client who is... well... a bit difficult to work with, to say the least.
He was the first to contact me and request my services. He wants me to build an enterprise class app for his company but he is very unwilling to divulge information and the requirements regarding the project.
I asked him to tell me more about the project (as I have no idea what we're building) but he claims it's "sensitive information". I even signed an NDA and assured him I had no interest in stealing his idea, but he still won't relent.
He's been giving me very incomplete pieces of information and is expecting me to give him a quote for the project based on what little information he shared. I told him that I can't build something and if I don't have a specification and unless I know what exactly I'm building, but he's still being extremely secretive.
I can't work like this. There's a lot of money in this project but I can't work like this. It's like asking a construction company to build you a house exactly according to your plans but then refusing to give them the plans.
Should I just give up or try to work with the guy? This seems like one of those projects that might become pure hell somewhere down the road.
