Dating a male stripper
No, he was not at all "the stripper I called." This was not going well. Armand told me that I'm with you."I tried to make small talk, but I had no idea what to say to this man with the action-figure arms. I mean, I had just met Vincent, yet here we were, sitting next to each other in silence. At one point in Magic Mike, someone scolds Channing Tatum's character, saying, "You're a bullshit 30-year-old stripper." I felt some unease to my right. As I walked up Broadway with Vincent, I saw the looks.Twenty minutes after our scheduled meeting time, I received a text from Armand: "You'll see us, we're in the Mania Mobile :)" At the time of this writing, I still don't know what the "Mania Mobile" is. On the escalator up to the theater, a woman asked both of us, "Are you two strippers? Vincent stated he was thirsty and, gentleman that he is, asked if I wanted anything from the concession stand. I could tell this line made Vincent feel uncomfortable, or perhaps angry. As the end credits rolled, Vincent bellowed, "What a fucking terrible movie." (For the record, I disagree with that review.)After the film, I asked Vincent if he had time for a drink. I know people were thinking, Why is this very good-looking man in the Hunk OMania tank top with ... Actually, I have no idea if that's what people were thinking, but I imagined it to be true. We sat at a table at an Irish pub at 72nd and Broadway. (I had known him for only two hours and already I knew his favorite drink.) I asked him about the "bullshit 30-year-old stripper" line.
Today it’s a big pleasure for me to inspire people all around the globe with my work.I mean, I didn't ask a high school outcast to accompany me to The Amazing Spider-Man.I didn't ask a Navy veteran to accompany me to Battleship. Maybe the only reason that I asked him to attend with me to begin with was because of the negative connotation.Just like Adam, Vincent had once been embarrassed when his sister discovered all of his costumes: a policeman's uniform, a fireman's uniform, a pizza delivery uniform. Vincent rated the movie a 5, which seemed quite a bit better than "fucking terrible." Vincent admitted that he really enjoyed the first half.(I can only guess that this third option ranks pretty low on the male stripper costume totem pole.) Adam's sister accused Adam of being gay. He liked the shy nervousness of Adam's character, before he went down the clichéd road of drugs and booze.Regardless, someone, he promised, would meet me at the AMC Lincoln Square on Manhattan's Upper West Side on Tuesday night. I gathered the courage to say something: "Are you the stripper I called? During the film, I felt a strange sense of anxiety. This is why movies are terrible venues for first dates.
" As soon as I said these words, I realized I had made an awful, awful mistake in every possible way. (I have no idea if that's true.) When I returned, Vincent was chatting with a woman sitting to his right. Hey, who just bought Vincent a large bottle of water? It was at least three weeks into my relationship with my girlfriend before we watched a movie together.
I remember my very first performance as if it was yesterday…
who would have thought that it’s going to be a “big business” one day.

Still, I didn't expect to feel so crestfallen during a phone conversation with a representative of a male strip club.
I mean, all I wanted was an informed employee to accompany me to a screening of Steven Soderbergh's new movie Magic Mike to compare and contrast fiction versus reality. There was a, let's say, well-built adult male on the corner who seemed like he was waiting for someone, too.
