Hello,

I decide to post this so people can give me their opinions. I want to tell you something that I am a model for eight months now.

Before May,

I was excited about moving to Los Angeles with my great friend. Later, I had a funny feeling, and of course, guts that warned me there would be something wrong so it did.

On the first day of moving out to Los Angeles, I was not happy and homesick for almost a week. But I kept fighting and arguing with my great friend. Then my roommates decided to kick me out and I lost my car at the same time due to being depressed after kicking out.

I moved in with the family back. I changed a lot after kicking out. I was crazy and am not happy living here for 1 1/2 months. I miss living in Los Angeles. I asked my roommates if they would give me another chance and they refused. They never forget about what happened that time so I tried my best to find a place in Los Angeles but no luck. I thought that if I find a place to live in Los Angeles then I would feel happier again.

I feel like my old roommates ruined my dreams of moving to Los Angeles. It was one of my dreams to live in Los Angeles and continue to work on my modeling career, but I lost the opportunity to live in Los Angeles.

Am I rush in moving out to Los Angeles next month? So I can continue to work on my modeling career if I find a place next month?

I tried my best. I post it on Craigslist. Many men send me messages but I rejected them. They could be dangerous. No luck about women roommates. =/ I found the post on Craigslist. It is about living in the loft house with the models. I would like to live in a loft house with the models, but I don't know if it is a good idea though.

What can I do? By the way, yes, I am on SS. I know Los Angeles is expensive for me to live there, but no luck about finding a place nor my old roommates won't give me another chance. So what can I do so I can continue to work on my modeling career? Difficult decisions to make.

The Greater Los Angeles area is one of the most desirable places to live, and there is a lot which LA offers.
It would be wise to have a decent amount of savings before you come here if you are not going to be working right away.

Besides, don't feed the troll.

LA is desireble to live? Since when? I am sure most Americans would disagree bigtime.

If you absolutely have to, I would just say to be very careful. There are a lot of people / situations of the unsavory kind, willing to take advantage of young women. There have always been countless numbers of people trying to "make it" in show business or related fields. What you said about the ad for a group of girls living in a loft, made me think it is probably a come-on that doesn't exist, a Prostitution or Porn-related situation. They know this will sound attractive to anyone seeking this career. They're are TONS of females who get into trouble due to their innocence and (some) men will tell you anything.

The best case scenario would be if you were already able to afford to live on your own while meeting legitimate agencies, had photos already prepared, etc. Many people work at other jobs while attempting their "dream careers" and even so, it is very expensive to live in L. A. I haven't looked into it, but you should probably educate yourself as to all the proper ways to get into modeling.. this is not 1960.

I get the feeling it is not the fault of your roommates.. something went wrong there. I think you have a lot to consider or sadly, you may end up another statistic. I'm just being honest. I hope you stop and think about who you are as a person and maybe find another option for yourself.
