Not Even If You Pay Me

I can't remember if I have mentioned this...there is a site out there called What's Your Price and this caught my attention online:  A New Way to Find a Rich Guy & Wealthy Mate.  No, I don't normally click on ad like links, but I had heard about this website on the news.  I think Gawker called it prostitution or something along those lines.  What is this site really?  It's exactly as interesting as it sounds.  I know you have heard me say, "Guys should pay me to go out with them."  Well, this site facilitates guys paying me to go out with them.

I signed up a while ago and forgot about it.  I recently logged in and found 9 guys that want to pay me for a date.  Just a date!!  The site is pretty clear about not having pimps and hos search for business, so I am going to assume these guys just want a date.  A guy offered me $100.  Is that enough?  Opportunity cost of my time.  I actually rejected some guys even though they are willing to pay me for a date because: guy #1 totally unattractive to me and guy #2 too cocky vibe plus he wanted to negotiate.

This video how it is supposed to work from my side (the attractive side):

$10,000 A Day

I remember reading an article over 10 years ago about supermodel Naomi Campbell or Linda Evangelista not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.  I used to think that was ridiculous, all they had to do was sit around and take some pictures; I was wrong. 

I was a model for a photo shoot not too long ago.  It is going to sound stupid, but sitting around and having people throw you in clothes to try on, pull your hair, poke you in the eye with mascara brushes, paint your face, etc is not easy.  It's actually pretty tiring.  You can't really do anything except sit still.  Trying on clothes took about 30 minutes.  Hair took about two hours.  Make up took another two hours.  Rollers coming off took about 15 minutes.  Make up touch up, another 15 minutes.  Pictures, another 15 minutes.  It was almost a full day of work!!  Taking off the makeup?  At least 15 minutes.

New York Guys

I got hit on everywhere in New York. We are talking:

  • Line for a bathroom at a bar
  • Elevator
  • Mall
  • Another line for a bathroom at a restaurant (I was there with a guy, but the bathroom guy didn't seem to care)

I used to think aggressive NY guys were annoying. Nope, not anymore

Networking Event

I went to a very hush hush networking event.  It was sponsored by a business school in London.  Even better, I was only allowed to attend because I went to the handful of business schools on the invited list and I was emailed the location less than 24 hours before the event.  Pretty exclusive for a networking event, but I do like keeping out the riff raff.

I met a lot of people who could be great business contacts.  Did not meet any guys that could be potential.  I feel bad for the geeky Asian guy who thought I could be his future wife and the big guy that reminded me of Will Ferrell (think hair and looks).

On my way out, I ran into this sugar daddy wanna be (he's not rich enough to be an actual sugar daddy).  San Francisco is small!!!

Privacy Please

I find it crazy that there are people out there that use Facebook, blogs, Twitter, etc. like a diary.  Is no one fearful of stalkers, jilted exes, and haters?  Yes, I have a blog and I periodically write in it.  However, not that many of you out there actually know who I am (and sorry, it has to stay that way).

Not Good Enough

It's really interesting, I know a couple of guys who break up with girls because they genuinely think they are not good enough for the girls.  These guys are friends of mine, so I see no reason why they would lie.  I don't think I have ever broken up with a guy because I think he is too good for him.  I have broken up with plenty of guys because I have thought they weren't good enough for me (because they weren't).

Royal Wedding

I spent the weekend watching five plus hours of the BBC's coverage of Kate and William's Royal Wedding.   Because of reporters constantly mentioning Princess Diana, I started googling her.  I didn't know much about Princess Diana when she was alive, but she seemed pretty extraordinary.  As if it wasn't difficult enough for Prince William to be in Westminster Abbey, he will get to watch news reporters talking about Princess Diana's funeral also taking place in Westminster Abbey; like he didn't know that already.  Her death was so sad; he was really close to her.  It's been over ten years since her death and she is still a very inspirational person.  She makes me want to get off my ass and do something.

The very stylish Kate Middleton is now a Princess/Duchess.  I think this woman is brilliant.  The tabloids called her Katie Waitie, but look who's laughing now...  They don't even have a prenup.  Then again, they have been together for eight years.

As much as it would be nice to be a princess, there is just too much pressure to behave, do "stuff," and look good all the time.  I am not saying I would turn it down if offered, but I would be aware of the many cons.
