Is it Money They Want, or Just Proximity?
So this weekend of super-VIP parties, models from every magazine you can name and my newfound social life in South Beach (Grove Probation week 4) has gotten me wondering something: I have been hanging out in what can best be described as “nasty” bars for the better part of my adult life, and as a result the types of girls I go home with are, well, the types of girls who frequent “nasty” bars. That is to say, not the smoking hot models you see going out in
There are two schools of thought here: One would say that these girls are so materialistic that your mere proximity to them is irrelevant unless you are throwing cash around like a one-hit-wonder in a rap video. But, hypothetically, if I had enough cash to be going to Prive (pronounced Pree-Vay) and

But what if I had spent all that time in clubs? Would my skills and confidence be better applied to the pseudo-models who hang out there? Would I still have massive frustration hanging over my head as I walk down
