Yes, he has the typical Hollywood ego. Which is why I moved from LA several years ago. I was thinking of abandoning the idea of doing any projects with him, and working with someone else. I don't like being put in this position. I feel like he is using his title as "director" to get somewhere with me. Frankly, it doesn't impress me. Either I like you, or I don't. I don't care who you know, or what you do.

Yes, he wants in your pants and will do anything he can to get there.

Doesn't mean he won't work with you. Be an a** and let him know how insulted you are and he will drop out of sight, along with any hope of any sort of business relationship.

Just curious, but why don't you mix business with pleasure?

There would be nothing pleasureable about having sex with guy friend in question. I have been friends with him for 10 years! If I had wanted it to happen, it would have happened a long time ago! Even the thought of it grosses me out .

Maybe if he was more direct I would respect him more, and maybe I would even be willing to go on a date with him. But the fact that he is trying to be sneaky about it, is just plain underhanded.

I have come to realize that me having business relationships with men is going to be very hard. Mainly because this will keep coming up. I've been thinking of sporting a wedding ring, my friend thinks I should try the "I have a lesbian lover at home and she's mad, crazy jealous" bit.

We'll see .

Here's the problem. One of my career ambitions is to be a writer. I would like to do both screenplay and novel writing, and because of some advice, I've recently been working on a script. One of my guy friends is a director. After I told him about my writing, he was very eager to read my work and discuss some project ideas with me. It seemed like a good opportunity at first, but then he started acting weird around me and now I'm starting to doubt his intentions .

Here are some examples of his slimey behavior: he has little pet names for me "gorgeous" "beautiful" etc. When he suggested we meet to talk about project ideas, he asked me out to dinner on Valentine's day(), he makes me feel guilty when I can't meet up with him.

Am I overreacting? What should I do so that I can make it clear to him that I only want to talk about business? My other guy friend thinks he just wants to get laid and is using the whole "I'm a director" thing to get in my pants. Thoughts?
Well, if he's a "friend", I am going on the assumption that he is close in age to you. So personally, his calling you beautiful or inviting you for dinner on V-Day, doesn't sound to me likes he's a Slime Ball but rather that he's an opportunist and a guy.

Just be straight up and say you're interested in keeping it professional and you don't want special treatment becase you are "friends:. His reaction will tell you if he's really a Slime Ball or not.

Friendship will only work if there is no attraction (for me), otherwise I want to be friends in bed.
