My experience of being friends with an obscenely attractive guy

Recommended Posts

When I was in college last year I would often hang out with 3 other guys, and we would just spend time together like normal, typically.
However, there was one guy who stuck out among us, and for several reasons - one reason was that he was both much taller than the rest of us and also had a significantly more powerful build (he was about 6'8 and had large natural muscles all over him whereas the rest of us were about 5'10 and nowhere near as muscular as him), and he was also really good-looking - really, really good-looking, so good-looking that even I could sometimes get a jittery stomach when I saw him, even though I have always considered myself straight.
Of course, this was in his favour in several very significant ways:
when the four of us were out together we would very often notice girls giggle when they passed us by, and it was always because they were checking out our hot friend.
Also, whenever we started talking to new people, they always showed a great interest in our friend, and he became the center of attention among everyone, despite being fairly quiet, and people always smiled and were generally polite to him.
And if we were approached by girls, they would never split up among us, they would always zone in on our friend and flirt with him, and the rest of us were basically completely invisible to them - and if we stayed out for a couple hours, then he would always have anything between 10-20 phone numbers from girls who had approached him that evening, and sometimes he would date and have sex with several of them one at a time over the same time period - we had asked him about this a few times, and he once somewhat hesitantly admitted that he often met 2-3 girls on the same day, one at a time.
This was a little frustrating at first, but we eventually got used to it, and it became natural that he got all the attention and we had learned to accept it, and just laughed about it.
We would also have to make sure that we agreed on when we should come and pick him up if we went out that evening, because if we made a spontaneous visit then he would always have the company of some beautiful girl, and sometimes he would have a girl there even if we had agreed on a certain time - and it was always a different girl every time, so apparently he was the type of guy who enjoyed sleeping around.

I think that even the rest of us guys were a bit into him, or almost at least - I noticed that all of us would have slightly more "romantic" mannerisms in front of him, and we would often give him various compliments and listen very intently to him whenever he spoke.
And of course, he was also a very successful model and could sometimes have other model agents walk up to him and offer him even more jobs, but he would decline them, and we knew that he got lots of money from his actual model job (much more money per hour than any other of us, I think he had come up to almost twice what any of us got).
And sometimes he would be approached by girls who he wasn't particularly interested in dating, usually because he already had lots of dates, and those girls would keep flirting and trying to convince him, sometimes right in front of the rest of us, and sometimes he would eventually say yes anyway, and often walk off with her and sit down with her in a corner and make out with her - and sometimes he would make out with two girls at the same time, and all that had happened up to that point had been that they had approached him, asked him if they could hang out, then sit and flirt wildly with him and made attempts to kiss him.
It was so easy for him to get girls that it was outright disgusting - he could even get openly irritated at the girls who pestered him when he had said no to them, and they would find that hot as well - but quite amazing at the same time.
I am not sure how common this is, but it was very fascinating to witness it like this.

Much depends on the ultimate goal. Are you sure you need to be as successful among girls as your friend? I know a lot of guys who would like a serious relationship more. Finding a good girl is no longer a problem, I think ..

    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
