    Bravo!

    "The answer is always 'no' unless you ask"

    Check out "Couchsurfing.com"
    Also, check Craigslist to see if there are any housesitting gigs that you might be able to secure.

    And, of course, you can always see if you can exchange sex for lodging. You're young, you could probably find the right sugar daddy.

    If he finds the right hunk, OP could find himself in a very profitable position.

    Your asking for a lot - 21 year old guys in LA who could afford to put you up free for 6 months are gonna be scarce as hens' teeth. And what would you have to offer them? More likely to be able to find someone who would put you up for a few days or a week sight unseen - and they are all gonna want to get into your pants. Gamrican had some other good suggestions. You might just come here and become an itinerant couch surfer - finding new guys and places and keep moving around. Maybe you can establish an internet relationship with some guy first and then (if he's real) broach the subject of coming for a visit.

    You don't have to be a sex "slave", just a sex "toy". It's not as bad as you may think.

    Or find someone old enough that they've lost any sex drive.

    YourName2000 saidHave you decided whether this person needs to have a bungalow, an old rancher, or will you be content in a two bedroom apt? --assuming of course that it's on at least the 20 floor, has maid service and a private pool.

    And have we narrowed down the age? --under what, preferably 26? White of course, and just ridiculously wealthy. No sex drive, but good looking, knows all the best clubs and can skip the lineups. Have you decided what work for them would be acceptable? Movie star? (Not anything below a b-lister, obviously.) How about a famous doctor??

    You really need to flesh out this fantasy. icon_biggrin.gif


    Funny, I don't have too much room to talk. My 19 yr old workout buddy hangs out with me all the time as in tonite after we get done at the gym. He's straight and I've lost every ounce of sex drive and desire so everything is great.

    It's our mutual adoration of cars, which glues us together. He's more into rice and I'm teaching him appreciation for Americana on wheels ... circa 60s.

    He's become one of my two best buddies. He's 19 and my other best bud is 79 .... now that's diversity!

    And speaking of that, off to the gym.

    30 and over is not necessarily old.

    this would make a lot more sense if you were asking to be someones roommate, and stay free til you find a job.. and you would have to be looking for one Everyday til you find one.. otherwise..

    It's a Damn stupid question.. icon_confused.gif

    So basically youve just stated you are attempting to lead someone on in exchange for 6 months. Called a golddigger here (Australia has lots of gold) and after the first week I guarantee you that you would be put out faster than the cat in the opening sequence of the Flintstones - and just in that manner! Somebody please pop a gif of that to enlighten those that haven't seen it.

    if your only impression of LA has been american TV/films you're going to be severely disoriented when you get here.

    Some funny responses here - and some that are blunt and spot on. There might be a way for you to make something work though. You could be a houseboy. Can you see yourself working in that way? A houseboy vacuums, dusts, scrubs bathrooms, does some shopping, keeps the cars clean, does laundry, irons, does windows, maybe some light yard work. Some houseboys drive their employers places, and pick them up. There are airport trips. Some houseboys travel with their owners and keep them company on business and vacation trips. Most houseboys (that I've heard of) also perform nocturnal duties in the master bedroom for their owners.

    The positives: A young guy can live in a beautiful house, drive great cars, own closets of good clothes, learn some fine manners and have a very good life. Some employers might be truly good guys and teach you a whole lot about life, exposing you to good art, fine furniture, culture, good foods and wines, etc. You could stay in shape, swim your laps, have a membership at a good healthclub, maybe even take community college classes.

    The negatives: Would include working for a fat, out of shape, blowhard with a booze problem and a sometimes nasty disposition. He could also be so gross you wouldn't want to go near him - day or night. You might refuse to perform your nocturnal duties and you'd be out in the morning - sitting on the curb.

    Just saying...........there are some ways to make your plans to move to CA without funds or a career work out after all. Think about Liberace and Scott Thorson. Just stay away from the drugs, and it could work for you.

    ^^^^^A houseboy's employer can be his benefactor, patron, donor, contributor, supporter, sugar daddy or in some cases, the employer can feel like the houseboy's owner. A young guy has to choose wisely - and land a position where he's working for a benevolent employer. It can be a good way of life. I've never had a houseboy, but I know of situations where it works beautifully - for both employer and employee. I think it is more common in large cities (NY and SF) and in most cases the employer is past 50, and appreciates all the attributes a young guy brings to the situation. It can be a mutually beneficial arrangement.

    "fat, out of shape, blowhard with a booze problem and a sometimes nasty disposition."

    You know who you just made me think of!

    But yeah, I had one for a few years until his family moved down to Vista.

    I had a Mediterranean nightmare of a home with about 2,500 - 3,000 sq feet of Mexican clay tile on decks inset over rooms down below and the courtyard. Mexican clay tile is very porous if left untreated. Plus tall windows, plus tall ceilings plus all sorts of other nightmarish maintenance issues that made this house a real PITA.

    I lived there the first two years on my own and did everything myself. And then the pizza delivery kid would always see me working on something and said that he needed another part time job to help with car and girlfriends expenses and would be happy to work for me part time. Seemed like a great kid so I said hell yeah.

    I paid him over twice what he was making at the pizza place so he was happy and I ended up with some free time to do something other than work on the house all of the time. He worked for me two to three days a week and we split up he chores so he did half and I did half. Nothing that I would ask him do that I wouldn't do myself. We had a great time, lots of laughs and made the work go a lot faster and much more fun.

    So yeah, these situations can work out fine.

    edit: I was only in my late 30s so it wasn't that I couldn't do the work myself, it's just that it took so damn long and was so boring doing it by myself. Fabio made it much more fun.

    I'm gonna be real real nice (for a big change) and not say a thing.

    I'm a little conservative in many ways, but not architecture, and what a nightmare this house was. Loved it though. Loved living in PV.

    Ew don't do this - catcher in the rye is def real. Try staying at a hostel - there are some affordable places in LA and it shouldnt take more than a month to find a job there. You can setup living wi roommates from out of town if you find a group that is solid.

    Also everyone i've met with a sugar daddy ugh, avoid that - like liberace to the max.

    I just read another poster re: Liberace but, don't do it - its safer and more secure to have money in the bank if you ever did something like that.

    And whoever wrote about ass or grass no one rides for free thats not true. Just tough to find.

    Sounds like you speak from experience. Care to share what makes this such a bad idea?

    I dunno. If he was legit, he's pretty naive to think anyone would give him free rent. And at the same time, he was a cunt for saying that he'd make the host believe that sex was a possibility. Can't imagine what would happen if he crossed the wrong guy. icon_confused.gif

    Yep, it's deleted not just hidden.
