I’ve worked at a “haunted” corn maze this year. So, out of curiosity, I decided to be this character.
I played a girl who got separated from her friends/ditched by her brother and his friends. No one could really see me really well unless they had a flashlight. I had actors working around me, who were experienced, telling me that they mistook me for a scared lost patron.
Most of the people just starred, walked past me, and said nothing. Alot said no. Some were making fun of me for crying.
One guy as a joke (to whom I will never know) asked me repetitively if I was raped. Another tried to get my number so he could “Hit that.”
But there were genuine helpers. There were a group of girls who took me into their group and said that I could eat cupcakes with them after we got out while I waited for someone to come pick me up.There was a woman who comforted me for a while till there was an opening in the groups and I told her I was an actor. Etc.
This Halloween season, be aware of the people around you. There are people who think its fun to get drunk and high during Halloween and people don’t know how to regulate that stuff are dangerous.
Girls don’t into “haunted” places alone. Go with people that you know and trust. Not some boy or girl that you just started going out with that you don’t know that well, etc.
I’m not saying, panic about bad people everywhere. I’m asking for people to be responsible and aware.
You know, I’ve liked Sylvester Mccoy for a long time. I’ve like older guys ever since I was 13 and now I’m 25. It’s pretty much a staple.
I’ve been told I’m an “odd bird”
By stating what I like I’ve caused awkward silences.
I’ve tried to be what I’m not.
i’ve dated guys who were my age. Several.
For a long time I couldn’t talk about who I really was.
I had one girl friend in my entire life who I never felt awkward talking about this stuff with.
It’s a dangerous life. There are guys out there who are not looking for a meaningful relationship. They’re looking for something to tell their friends, someone to control, a side chick, and sometimes they don’t even know that you’re supposed to be some kind of substitute for something.
It’s a hard life.
I remember when girls my age were crushing over Orlando Bloom, Edward Elric, Draco Malfoy. I was in my little corner with Sir Ian Mckellen, Hughes, and Snape.
"I think House is hot.", "Sean Connery was kinda hot." or "Johnny Depp is sexy so I’m like you. I understand." unless it’s a pattern in ages in guys. Fuck you.
It’s not a phase.
But now everything has changed. I have a wonderful man who is okay with who I am. He gave me tickets to meet Sylvester Mccoy for the first time.
I live with him and away from the people who judge me.
And we’ve been talking about the possibilities of marriage.
My house mates are nerds and except me and my other half and it doesn’t bother them.
Hello, my name is Lauren and I am attracted to older men.
