Dating Disaster: My Perfect Companion ... Who Writes Pornos

By

Screenplay
Everything was perfect. The only catch? He was a screenwriter for pornos.

It's a quiet Tuesday evening. I've surely already dated all the crazies on this dating site, slowly weeding them out, one date at a time. I'm hopefully optimistic, when an IM pops in. We'll just call him 'Jim,' as to protect his true identity: 'Jim100.'

At first sight, Jim had already met my image of the perfect boyfriend: cute, boy next door with trusting eyes. I check out his profile – it's kind of vague, but funny. We start chatting. We talk about random, entertaining topics forever. I have now decided this could be the perfect guy! He then asks me about my work and I in return ask what he does. He says he's a screenwriter. I ask him if he's gotten work. He replies that he's on a contract for a huge company.

 

"That's amazing!" I say. "What kind of things do you write?" I ask.

Jim: "XXX."

"Wait, what? Seriously?" I ask. In disbelief, I question him repeatedly. Surely he was pulling my leg. Was it possible that my perfect companion in life writes porn? Dating Disaster: A Guy, A Girl, Her Gas

I tell him to prove it. He sends me links to various films. He tells me he works for one of the biggest studios in Los Angeles. I stare at my screen with shattered dreams. He says he's hoping to build connections to really sell the 'suspense thrillers' he likes to write.

"How long have you worked for them," I ask.

"Six years." See the rest at BadOnlineDates.com
