Hey there GT! It's been awhile.
I recently put my old skill set to use and got back into exotic dancing. Not exactly what I wanted to be doing with my life at this point in time, but hey, it pays the bills and I really want to pay down my debt and move out of my parents house. I was working three jobs and still not able to make ends meet and pay down the debt that was rising up around my ears and concentrate on school. So I decided to start dancing again. It's been okay so far. I wasn't able to work at the upscale gentleman's club that I used to, because I'm not a twiggy 19-year-old anymore and I've got a lot of ink. So I'm not making quite as much money as I used to, but that's fine I guess because I've been able to quit the two extra jobs I had on top of my primary job. The only weird part is sometimes I'll see a dude I knew from high school or someone's boyfriend at the club, and those exchanges are usually pretty awkward.
However, the guy I've been kind of sort of seeing but not really but kind of (Great White Buffalo if any of you remember that) is not at all happy with what I'm doing. I told him what I was doing, and he just stopped talking to me full stop until last night. I didn't respond right away because I was working. He said he would leave me alone to the guys and I responded that I would much rather be with him than being at work. He didn't respond so I asked him if I should take the hint and leave him alone. He said that he was the one who should take the hint. Tried to call him since arguing over text is stupid, but he texted me that he didn't want to talk since he was high and drunk and didn't want to embarrass himself. Haven't heard from him since then. I'm kind of guessing our situation is officially over. I understand why he's upset with me being a stripper, but he's never said he wants to be exclusive, and I sure as hell know that he's been sleeping with other people while I haven't. So, whatever dude.
I forgot how much of a hit your dating life takes when you strip for a living. Your clientele say they want to date you, but that's never a thing that you want to do. When you're trying to meet someone new and you tell them what you do for a living, they don't usually respond well to it.
Stay tuned, I'm sure I'll have stories to tell of my experiences in a middle-tier strip club.
