I came across some ad on Craigslist which was on the Talent section where people would recruit models/actress/actors/… who would do acting and modelling. Most of the ads were looking for nude models, or actress/actor for adult movie. Also, there were some ads which were looking private hostesses for bachelor parties or gentlemen club’s parties. The pay were great! And the ad that caught my attention the most was a guy trying to hire girls to be his fake girlfriends. The girl would get paid for just doing that, doesn’t it sound great? That ad makes me wonder. I messaged the guy and asked him if he wouldn’t mind tell me why he wanted to hire girls to be his fake girlfriend instead finding the real one. He didn’t answer but just asked me if I wanted to be one. I told him I already have a boyfriend. He asked me how much “my boyfriend pays me”, I said,”his life”. The guy stopped message me. I find it kind of interesting how people communicate now a day. The message was straightforward, nothing’s heavy.
I’ve been living in Vancouver for almost 8 years and I’ve always been interested in watching and observing people. Living in Vancouver for more than seven years makes me change a lot. Sometimes I can’t even believe myself of how I have changed. I’ve become more mature and thought more deeply. However, I also have become more distance with the people I used to be close to. Society can be a big impact in your life I’ve learned after all I have been through. If you take a look a little closer, Vancouver is quite a boring city. Other than the malls, the clubs, there are not much thing to do in the winter. Summer is a little better because we can go to the beach and out to the sun most of the time until 8 or 9 p.m. Or you can go hiking, rock climbing. Most of the time in the summer, people are enjoying outdoor. The people are boring as hell. They’d rather stare at their phone all the time than speak to some human being. Or if you have someone talk to randomly on the street, either it’s a weirdo or there is something wrong with the guy. There is no such a intelligent conversation at all. You rarely find one.
That is a little bit of Vancouver living. Even though Vancouver is one the best city to live in (not sure about that) because everything is so freaking expensive with taxes!!! The money you make doesn’t help you pay off your bill at all. Yet we love this city. Whenever I am away for a month, I start to miss Vancouver and I don’t know why…It’s like there is some kind of charm that lures people back in the city.
Love & sex in Vancouver is ridiculous. Well, maybe it’s happening around the world too. But I am talking about Vancouver people here. Sex first, love later…sometime no love at all. If you go to online dating website, you can see a bunch of profiles which always say: communication, respect, honesty, sense of humour, bla bla bla in the profile. But the thing is: Vancouver people don’t talk – How do you communicate? Yes, Vancouver people are very respectful people, but honesty? I wonder about that. Sense of humour, oh yeah some of them are quite funny, but most people like stupid jokes.
I see a lot of lonely men and women and they are 40 years old and up. I wonder why they are not with someone. If there are 1 or 2 I can understand, but there are lot of them. You know why that is? Because people here they always care about themselves so much. They’re scared to get hurt. They put up a fence to protect themselves. They don’t open themselves up that’s why they cannot trust anyone. When you think of nothing but about yourself then you’ll end up with yourself. Some men are in their fifty and yet they don’t have a wife or kid. Their lives are just like that, tasteless. This is the different between Asian and Western. We, Asian people always put family first. No matter what you do, at a certain age, Asian people always try to make their children settle down. And Asian children respect and listen to their parents more.
I am so tired of typing right now. My brain just doesn’t work like I want to. So I’m going to leave it here and talk more about it later 🙂
My writing is not focusing in 1 topic. So people will see that the concepts are all over the places. I talk about different things but there is only 1 conclusion 🙂
