Being Single in Hollywood

To kick things up a bit on Tatter Scoops. Please welcome Trias. She’s a friend of mine, a beautiful Indonesian girl living in Los Angeles, California. This how she described herself:  “To me, it’s all about taking chances, it’s about trusting that people were put in life for me to capitalize on the opportunity. I work hard, party harder but study the hardest cuz life is short yet moves so fast. ♥” Don’t you just love that? Please give her some warm love.

“Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty, sexy, and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.”
(Sex and the City)

Hi, I’m Trias and I’m single. 🙂

When Maureen posted on her Facebook looking for a guest blogger, I had no idea what I wanted to write if I were featured as one considering most of her posts are about her son, Lil’ A. That cute little boy with sparkling eyes and naughty smirk –boy, is he handsome or what!

But then I was like.. hey, I could relate to that.. well, somewhat.. just not in a mommy kind of way. I, for sure, deal with many-many boys over these years. So.. sit tight, you’re about to hear the ugly, sweet, and fun boy(s) stories of mine.

March 2006.

It was my first date with this guy named Billy. Please-please believe me and my eyes, he’s not only cute but also tall! He also got this cute smile with hazel eyes that amazed me until… I listened to the words he’s saying.

Boy, I tell ya, all he talked about throughout the night was.. him, him and him, and well.. him. He loves himself so much not once he asked about me. Listen to what he said:

What else do you want to know about me? Ask me questions!
Want to touch my arms? Here *folding his arms, showing off his biceps* I just worked out, feel it!
And my chest *pulling his chest up* Feel it
Am I as cute as you said on your emails?
I do yoga. I can show you my yoga moves. I’m very flexible ya know

OMG! this guy, I can’t believe him! I couldn’t help but laughing. Not because he’s funny, but because he’s such a little kid trapped in an oh-so-hot 29 yr old guy. Oh, let’s not forget, he’s also an actor. Well, duh?! This is Hollywood! Aren’t everyone in this town an aspiring actor? He’s blabbing about his short film, about him being a writer and oh of course he also modeled before, for some magazine or some sort. I was like (in my head).. OK OK, I GET IT. You’re hot, you’re an actor, you’re a model. SO WHAT?! (I swear I wanted to run out)

That’s not the weird part of the story, by the way.

When I walked back to my car, he walked right past me, and FYI, I have this thing of checking out a guy’s butt all the time hehe.. so of course, I looked at his behind.. and OMG! He.. umm.. he freakin’ wore thongs!

That’s it. Big turn off. No second date for the thong guy!

April 2006

• Next time, Actually LISTEN to your Friends •

There was this Yugoslavian guy that I met at a bar last week who asked me out to dinner. My close friends said he was ugly, weird and slimy. They told me not to go, but knowing me I went anyways, because I remember him being tall, got accent, and cute….. well.. I thought he was.. until last night.

When I saw him, I still thought he’s tall and cute…. until he smiled. Bad teeth hahahaha. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to sound rude or mean, but really, he’s in desperate need of braces. I’m just saying. But anyways, we had dinner and had small conversation. He sounded cool at first, until he asked me “Do you smoke pot?” WTF?!

I asked if he’d been married before, he said I AM.

I said, “Well, I can’t hang out with you then. How long have you been married?
He said, “6 months.

I became less and less interested to continue the dinner. I mean.. Hello?! I’m not about to mess around with someone’s husband! So, I stopped asking questions. But then he asked if I were married. I said no, and told him that I’m divorced. He asked if I got any kids. In which I answered no. But then he said “I do. Two. They’re in Yugoslavia now.

Eeeekkk! Married for only 6 months with 2 kids left behind and there he was, on a date with moi.

Ooohkkaay. Time to call it the night. Ciao!

Stay tuned for more… 😉

    Great guest post, Trias! Only in Hollywood, I guess!

      Too bad she doesn’t have a blog 😉 Thanks Pop!

    Sounds like you have some very interesting stories! A man wearing a thong is a HUGE turn-off! I don’t blame you for running away from that character!

      If I was single I would run away from that thong wearing man too LOL 😀

    What guy wears a thong on a date? Weird but I’m laughing. I get it if you’re a Speedo/thong model and you’re out on a photoshoot.

    The Yugo guy. There were so many red flags on that guy. I’m glad you got rid of him. On a positive note, at least he was honest with you from the start.

    Stories like this make me so glad to be happily married to my non-thong wearing, beautiful teeth, has two kids with me husband.

      Thank you 😀 I should push her to make her own blog. She got some fun stories to share.

    Geez…I thought single guys in New York City were bad! Did know of some guys who went Commando (no underwear) but I never came across a thong-wearing-dude. What was he thinking? Very funny post – can’t wait for the next one.

      LOL Nami, going commando on a date sounds scary. Yikes. Thank you, Nami! 😀
