Have you ever dated someone in the entertainment industry? Did you find it to be a one sided relationship and that you were merely there to feed an ego?
I once dated a minor local (east coast) rock star. It felt as though I were just along for the ride. Her stage persona was mild and sheepish and somewhat dingy, but her off-stage ego was stellar. We had some fun and then we fizzled out and I don’t remember why. I guess it was inevitable and it all worked out well for the both of us.
I looked her up on the net today. She’s still out there working her music. I heard some samples of her stuff and it sounds the same as it did in the 80s, which isn’t bad. I never have been able to continue doing something for 30 years without changing it somewhat if not dropping it all together. She must really love what she does.
