Fake dating a movie star…
Here I was, winner of a dinner date with sexy movie star Shawn McCall for a contest I didn’t even enter myself.
I was quite nervous. I even tried to get away from the dinner. You see, he was the type of guy you couldn’t resist even though you knew you’d get burned. I had the habit of falling in love easily, and he was known for his multiple hookups. Basically, not the best combination. And at dinner, just like I feared, he was as flirtatious as ever, even attempted to kiss me and asked to see me again.
Of course, I turned him down. He was the opposite of what I was looking for. That didn’t stop him, though. He came back to my place with a proposition: to fake a relationship for three months. He needed to show he was boyfriend material for a role. And since my yoga studio needed some publicity, I accepted.
But pretending to date had its share of problems that I had a hard time dealing with: Shawn’s determination to rehearse being madly in love, my fear of falling in love with him, his fans….
Could our fake relationship blossom into something more, or was it just not meant to be?
