I am very leery of complimenting models.  I don't want anything to be misconstrued.

I don't think I ever have, in fact, complimented any model.

There are far greater compliments than beauty.  Shit, I can't compete with a 17 year old's youth.

... and beauty is just beauty but it's the business, but remember a woman still likes to be seen as physically attractive.  This woman spoke so fondly of my face in detail.  I'm not used to that and it made me feel really good.

I know sooner or later it will all fall off anyway, ha.

Hmm, you're right.  I have complimented models on being easy to work with, and the like.

But not on their physical appearance.

And ultimately, it's not a model's looks that I'm truly interested in - it's her personality.  Meaning, I don't want to work with people who are unpleasant or obnoxious.

My general impression of the trade (I consider it more of a trade than a profession) is that many people are standoffish and are more concerned about making money than they are about building friendships...

Perhaps it's not all like that, though?

Aside from the Creating Art ( if i hear or see that darn phrase one more time I'm gonna puke), It's not really about making friends in the Trade ( agreed, like it, goid choice there ), as much as a need to eat and pay bills ( like Bill, my parole officer, and Bill, my ...just kidding).

For hobbyist it may be about getting with a like-minded crowd, but folks who do it for a living it's different imho.

Blame Hollywood.  Their misrepresentation of modeling is almost as bad as their misrepresentation of science.

I understand that.  But it still may not be necessary to isolate one's self, like that.

No, but I suspect my personality is peculiar and I don't seem to always get along with people I meet.

Most of the time I do, but now and then there are glaring exceptions.

Isolation happens because of the job, not in spite of it.

It's impossible to keep up with the Saturday crowd if I'm out of town or whatever..
Then back home i gotta catch up with a thousand things and theeeennnn I'm on the road again, same spiel as before.

I'm one sensitive cat though.

I see.  I don't deal with that [yet] because I'm not very experienced yet. 

So far I'm just doing this as a way to deal with personal issues, really.

My guy noticed a skin tag on my arm the other day. He asked me if it was new, cause he "knows my body pretty well and doesn't recall seeing it before/melt!!
( it was a mole I accidentally nearly tore off so it looked different. It's the size of a pin head. / melt some more)

It's amazing when someone pays attention.

I'm struggling with my emotions now, upset probably about a bunch of stupid shit, but not to me.

Getting sick of being isolated.

Understood. 

Another word on the not having friends thing : girls. They don't wanna be my friend. Cause they're afraid I'm gonna take their man/thunder/attention/self esteem.

I'd love a few lady friends. But either the bitches are too jealous or all they do is talk about babies and subusbicide.

No, ta.

I'd  rather remain lonely stray.

Xept my guy is worried about my dude pals ( you know, the ones who still love you if you forget to call on their birthdays, the people who.cringe WITH you at the very word Baby Shower,  the people you don't have to worry about leavinh you completely hammered stranded in a dive bar, and if they do you know you deserved it and are already plotting a Jackass-style revenge.....after the two weeks away without a peep.)

Oh no, doll, go distract yourself a bit.
I know it's hard, i tell myself it's my stupid hormones when i have a bout like that.

Perhaps you can take a little comfort that you're not alone in your being alone.
Someone's studying your beautiful angular face right now, albeit virtually...

The ever-present green-eyed-monster, eh?

It is foolish.

edit : subusbicide?

My friend ( oversees, we Whatsapp) and i make what we call SingleServingFriends.

On the airplane, at dinner, in a bar, etc..dude/chick sitting next to you becomes my drinking buddy/shrink/pal/offendees  (awkward lol) for the duration..

The faces of people when i tell them i DO NOT constantly hang out at cool clubs/ pool parties/stretch limos/country club with my superhot superhorny modelgirlfriends looking superbored..
I tell them it's mostly
Tired, hungry, cold and lonely...

Priceless expressions on their disillusioned little faces...

Just read this one.
Lol!

Damn straight!

If people only knew the legwork and the hustle to do half of the things you 'do'.
Tonight I'll be at a party in the city on two hours of sleep wearing my Yo Bitch/BB tee.

Ha ha
