Your right. She not average looking...to you. I guess coz I'm around my GFs mates all the time i don't notice. Or care.

If you've ever been to Australia youl understand where I coming from.

Anyway I reakon if OP has a life relative to what she wants, where she is now... she should stay there.

Vegas by its very nature is a risk. Both in perception and in reality.

Best of luck OP. You will need it. Not as much as us ugly folk but you will need it none the less. Who knows though. It's Vegas. Anything can happen

I was once trying to make a decision similar to yours and I'm glad I did not take the use-my-looks-for-money path. My advice is to ditch your current boyfriend, pursue a "normal" career, and when you go back to dating aim for a financially stable and sober minded guy who will cherish you and provide for you. Maybe aim for older guys, they tend to be nicer and more appreciative. I don't mean grandpa old, but 10-15 years older. And I don't mean a sugar daddy either, just someone kind, caring, and financially stable.

No guy who cherishes you will suggest going to Vegas for quick money on your beauty.

Bzzzzzz wrong. Sorry. A persons looks alone can determine how others treat you. Whether you used your looks on purpose or not. The result is still the same. The act of others is done without your intentions..

You dont actually think people gave you there seat on the bus coz they were nice do you? Man I see my GF get treated like a queen all the time...and it ain't by me LOL!

It freaks me out when I'm standing next to her, In my eyes people are plain weird. When she not around...the difference is like nite and day!!

As for the BF. How do we know he's not everything you mentioned? It's impossible to judge a person in real life let alone on a forum lol!

It's a two way street. Attractive women seems to have certain expectations as well.

Just out of curiosity... when did your boyfriend's ex work at the Wynn? Reason I ask is that if it was pre-2008 casino tips/wages... with the current market, you may need to factor in a 50% or so pay cut due to the economy.

So making say $500-1000/night (pre-2008) would probably be closer to $250-500 in these times...maybe. Not as many people coming now and not nearly as much money to throw around as back then. Pretty hard to use her income as a 'scale' if she was not working here during the bust.

I think the man should always pay for the date or don't ask her out. When at home the woman should make the sandwiches and make required beer runs. Life is simple when we follow basic rules.

You are very attractive, however so are all the other waitresses in the nightclubs. I'm going to be straight out with it as some others here have done. If you want to make the big money (as in 5k a night average), you're going to have to compete with women who not only look like you, but are having sex with the entire management team for that particular club. If you don't like it, you lose a job. This town is littered with hot women with no education - there is no other way for them to make the kind of money they do otherwise, with the exception of prostitution. The Wynn may like your look, but without prior experience, you most likely will not get the job. On top of this, there was a story in the paper about a cocktail server who was given the ultimatum of either going up to a suite with a high roller who specifically asked for her for her "company", or being fired. She refused, and was fired on the spot. This happened at the Wynn.

In my opinion, you're another case of "I have a *****, give me money" type of woman who is too lazy to start a real career. You think I'm being an *******? Ask anyone in Vegas of what they think about a "career" in cocktailing. You'll get a lot of the same responses.

Suggest you get some clear heels and start practicing your pole work. I have an obligation to keep my daughter off the pole, but hey, you're not my daughter.
Hmm...you sound interesting- like a trader in NYC I used to know-

for attractive women to do that job...uh I advise them to pull up some sites from the Valley- lots of film jobs in San Fernando...not acting though.....
