Not Quite a Model Date

Submitted by Christina:

I was a model (small time, mostly) and I used to be on subway and bus ads advertising a local college. It was a close up shot of me, at a desk, looking attentive as if listening to a lecture.

I had an online dating profile and sure enough, every now and again, someone would send me a message saying something like, "Hey, aren't you the girl from..." It really was a small-time gig, and really not much of a big deal.

Will was one of those who recognized me and asked me out. I liked the fact that he didn't make a big deal about it.

He took me out to a Chinese place and asked me a lot about my modeling career. We had a nice time at dinner and I thought that I was learning a lot about him as well.

After dinner, we went to another place for drinks and after we both had a couple, he offered to walk me home from the subway.

When we had made it most of the way back, he said, "Hey, come here," and guided me into an alleyway.

He kissed me and began feeling me up. I tried to push him away, but he held me tight. He said, "I can't believe it. I'm going to fuck a model."

No he wasn't. I kicked him hard and shoved at his face. He let go for a second and I ran down the sidewalk, ripping out my keys and jetting into my apartment building. I didn't even look to see if he was following me.

He sent me a long, rambling e-mail that basically boiled down to, "What's your problem?" as if he hadn't done anything wrong. I'm sure he'll figure it out someday, after a sexual assault conviction. But hopefully he'll figure it out before trying it on anybody else.


  1. You should report him. As you say it is only a matter of time.

    Normal people do not let it enter into their heads to sexually assault their date. At least without getting permission first. Basically he's fucked in the head.

    Report him before he attacks someone else.

  2. Yeah the only way it's going to get through his head before he tries it on someone else is if you report him.

  3. I would have reported him too. And then I would have sent a "please forward" email to every woman I know.

  4. Report his asap. Next time another woman might not be able to run away.

  5. Actually, Christina, it is a sad fact that you will have to be on the lookout for this all the time. One of the hazards of being a model and having good looks is that a certain type of guy tries to attach themselves to you. The man you narrowly escaped was just the most blatant example. But in general, abusers have a low self-image and try to boost their ego by getting a super-beautiful girlfriend. But this doesn't help them, and then they start taking it out on you. I've seen it happen a lot to my woman friends in the modeling business. So watch out.

  6. The downfall here is that you're a model who is single and looking. I do full-time modeling during the summertime when I'm not in school, but I always lie and say that I have a boyfriend. That keeps them away. But if you're looking for a boyfriend, lying about having one isn't going to get you anywhere.

  7. I can't believe I am about to be kicked by a model!
