Los Angeles is a city very much based on first impressions. Translation: LA is a city very much based on superficial impressions.
More than anywhere else, everyone has a schtick. We are attracted to the glitz and glamour. We have an attitude of "on" and are attempting to extract "what can you offer me?" It's ingrained in the LA DNA, which shouldn't be a surprise considering how many people come here to be "discovered" based on their face, an instantly gratifying one-liner or a three-minute sales pitch. But in the same breath, not everyone is shallow. It's just that getting past the facade and finding the depth can take a little more work. And here's the thing: If you skip the BS from the onset, and go the authentic approach, you're already memorable. Yes, despite the exterior layer of fake, we truly are craving a genuine connection, a real conversation and ultimately a relationship with whom we can finally let down our guards and be seen and loved for who we are (not who we pretend to be).
Where can you go to up your chances of a real conversation, maybe creating a substantive connection, that could even lead to a relationship?
