I just wanted to get your guys' read on something. As a general rule I do not date strippers because I dislike their manipulative, money-grubbing ways. My friend was a bit of a sucker once and was made a suger daddy by a stripper who was stringing him along. So last night my friends and I go to the strip bar. It was mostly meh to me until this really smoking kinda goth girl took the stage. Jet black hair, full sleeves, and black latex everything. I liked the way she looked so I sat by the stage and threw out some ones. She came over and pretty much stopped dancing and just talked to me for a few seconds. I'm pretty good at reading people and I was really taken back by how sweet she was. Totally broke my assumption that strippers are all evil, manipulative, money grubbing whores. She saw my Slayer shirt and talked about it being one of her favorite bands (it wasn't bullshit either, she knew song and album titles, band members names, etc etc) She eventually leaves the stage and I go rejoin my friends and after a few the sorta-goth girl comes around and sits with me. I know this game, you sit down with the guy, flirt a bunch and get him to buy a private dance...except she didn't do that. She sat and talked to me about music and stuff like that. She didn't try any of the bullshit flirting or flattery or anything. In fact for a few minutes I forgot I was talking to a stripper. It was more like how you talk to a girl on a date that's going really really well. She gave me her phone number and real name and told me to call her so we can hang out sometime. What do you guys think? I figure even strippers have boyfriends, and not all guys are a cashcow to them. I think it might be time to break my "no strippers" rule. If I do so I'll certainly keep an eye out for redflags, I'm not about to be taken for a ride.
