It's weird. She's a loner by choice, but wants to make a social statement. She wants to go to the trendy clubs and bars by herself, not to get with some guy or hang out with friends, but to just do so.

As a guy, I would think, "What is her purpose of being here?"

PS, I already read the fact that you made this thread as a social experiment. Also, the same would apply vice versa. If a guy did the same thing you talked about in your posts, every girl I know would be completely weirded out by him. Especially if they're not social creatures.

My answer would be "working girl."

They might also judge you for being in your mid-3os, as youth is everything to those idiots.
No one can tell I'm in my thirties; I'm Asian and look rather young. Some people tend to think I'm 18 and 19.... I have zero wrinkles and am a size 00. I get mistaken as a teenager and once even as someone's "child" due to my size and young looks.

Youth is not a problem for me because most of the time I look too young. My problem is that people think I am TOO YOUNG and as a result I don't get enough respect. I am one of those "ageless asians" that look a good 10+ years younger. My problem is that I don't look old enough, I look too young, believe it or not.

I kind of like the superficial scene to be honest.... I have to admit, I am not really deep or super profound. I'm kinda on the superficial side myself.

I would suggest the W Hotel in Hollywood on a Friday or Saturday night. They will not turn away an attractive female by herself. Park yourself in the lobby bar where they have the big party and you will be set to go. I see single women by themselves all the time.

Another good option is the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. Same deal. They have a cool outdoor pool bar and the cool lobby bar.
I have always wanted to go to the W or Roosevelt so these two sounds like great options.

Why not be smart and safe and go at least with a friend or group of friends?

And, yes, alone in some establishments you'd be a target and people would think you were there just to be picked up or that you were possibly a prostitute. Now, if there's a neighborhood pub or something that locals go to that would be different but I'd still be careful to go in a group until you get to know the other regular patrons.
Now this is a very paranoid attitude. Sorry I don't agree at all and I will do as I please.

Having a taste of the good life, the glamorous life but by myself. I like to dress up and be seen. Not really into socializing though. Depends on my mood though; some days I might be into socializing so if I feel great that day then who knows, maybe I will talk to people. It depends on my mood. However, most of the time I don't feel social.

Stop caring what people think. If you can defend yourself, have a few tricks up your sleeve and have some real confidence to boot, you'll be fine. If you care what people will think, Hollywood will swallow you up. That's what it does. It can be a lot of fun, but "ego" (and I mean that in the psychological sense, not the "egoist" sense) is ripe for destruction out there and people will take advantage of it.

You sound like you're projecting a good deal of confidence in your ability...keep working that in to your true sense of self and I think you'll have a lot of fun...just remember to recognize Los Angeles for what it really is, not what it appears to be.

Wait a minute.... You rant about how judgemental others are and you're concerned about how you'd be treated when going alone. Then tell us how you're superficial and like the superficial scene of the nightspots.

I live my life to impress bouncers, doormen, waitresses and bar tenders.
