So, we've heard about the 'casting couch' forever. So why are people still surprised by these things?
A girl from our town, who was very talented & was in a lot of productions locally, went out to Hollyweird. She got some small parts right away, but
then faded away. Word from her local friends, was that she wouldn't sleep with anyone to get bigger parts. And everyone nodded their heads in
affirmation when they heard that. Even people in our small town 'knew'!
Kind of like when you think, how did that actor/actress, musician, ever make it, they aren't even that good?! Oh...yeah!!!
When girls go out to clubs or whatever, they find out very quickly, to be aware of the creepers & smoothies!
Creepers are usually very unattractive, maybe even scary looking & act disgusting, but they have money to throw around. That's all they have going for
them. But there are always going to be people who are attracted to money, no matter what!
Smoothies are usually attractive, smooth talkers & are very good at influencing women.
They are players, but are so smooth that they seem genuine! They actually come across as genuinely interested in you, just for who you are.
For both types it seems to be all about the 'hunt'.
And the more uninterested a girl is, the more of a challenge they seem to see it as. Some of them don't take rejection well. Those were the ones you
had to really look out for! Using humor as a deflection didn't always work & you always needed a backup plan to be safe. That's just the way it was.
The kind that you felt like you needed a shower just from them talking to you for two minutes!!!
A group of us used to talk about strategies to 'disappear' when confronted with that type.
Once on vacation, when we were out at a club in our hotel, a couple of guys wouldn't leave us alone. We said we were going to the restroom, but kept
on going to the elevators. We could see them starting to follow us. So we got on the elevator & pushed the buttons for every floor!
No way for them to tell which floor we got off on!
At work you knew who not to talk to, or even smile at, because they would see it as encouragement. But mostly they were harmless.
But there was a guy that kept asking me out, who tried to follow me home one night, to find out where I lived. I was familiar with the area, so after
I got far enough ahead of him, I took an alternate road & drove with my lights off. Then pulled my car down behind my house & didn't turn the house
lights on. I saw his car drive by slowly a couple of times, but then he gave up.
He never bothered me after that, thank goodness.
There's no way I would want to be dating now!
Maybe it's just too many crime shows & Jerry Springer, but things just seem to have gotten bat ship crazy!!!
