Insider Dating

Dreamed 2017/4/2 by Wayan

My friend Mark and I have a long talk on the phone. He's comparing our careers. I'm kind of shocked to discover how he's seen my last few years, as I've begun dating.

He thinks my love life's not about love OR sex--it's mainly about making money! Mark just knows I'm a seducer who gleans private information from my dates, and then makes killings through insider trading. It's not just illegal but sadistic, since it often wrecks women's careers--I buy/sell enough to shift prices, spook investors, upset deals, and inevitably expose that my dates confided in me. Somehow, I avoid both jail and a reputation--I do this over & over, yet get away with it!

It doesn't bother Mark that I'm wrecking my dates' lives, because he has a grudge against women in general for being the seducers they are. If I'm outsmarting them in the seduction game, good for me. "It's a dog-eat-dog world."

Except... I'm doing none of this. I don't play the market at all. I bought one social fund years ago and live quietly off its earnings. I'm dating because I like to; I haven't exploited any of my dates. Why should I?

How on earth did Mark get the idea I'm living off... Insider Dating?
