Industry parties bring out the most interesting people and things.
It can be a struggle,
but I see why people fight to be in the “industry”.
It can bring a ton of pleasure getting behind those VIP doors.
It can also be a struggle to get there and an even bigger struggle once you get inside.
You have to make sure that you talk to the right people who drop the right key sentences:
“I work at a record label…”
“Oh, I am a assistant for…”
“The company I work for just signed….”
Networking is a big deal because you never know who can help you get to a higher position.
You can go from lowly intern to administrative assistant in the drop of a business card or an exchanging of a phone number.
But for me who is painfully shy around the right people….
Well I am not that bad.
Once I get over the nervousness, I am a hoot to be around.
I get comfortable and crack jokes.
I have been told that I make people comfortable… once I get comfortable.
Last night, my semi uncomfortable ass attended an exclusive industry party.
This go round was for music.
I have been working hard on getting out of my job to start my career and finally a friend of mine took notice.
I was beginning to think that black folks would NEVER help you out to succeed.
She works very closely for the Wolf the party was for.
When I arrived at the lounge, it was all eyes on me.
Vixens and Wolves.
I felt a little taken aback because I never saw so many people staring at me in one setting.
My outfit was poppin, plus I looked good, so I guess they were also taken aback themselves.
My friend got me at the door and I walked inside and sat at her table.
She introduced me to so many people that night that I’m still trying to remember names.
Even some Wolves that I have covered on my site, I was face to face with them.
AND CAN I SAY THE WOLVES IN THERE WERE FINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some of those dudes shut me down with how they were dressed.
Some of them shut me up with the pecs and arms skillfully hidden under outfits.
One thing I realized is that even behind those doors, people are nicer but it is still cliquey.
They will invite you into their clique if you have something that can benefit them.
Since my skills are needed, I was warmly received and got a few business cards.
Another thing I noticed was the amount of bi sexual Wolves that were trying to clock me.
Staring at me dead on, looking under Fitteds, and extra friendly and smiley as they hugged/greeted me.
I would turn my head to look and lock dead on with Wolves who were talking to a females,
who would give me that “look” a couple times all while still in conversation.
It was also interesting to see how these Wolves, Hybrids, and Foxes interacted with each other.
One minute, they would be masculine and low key with a certain crowd.
Next, in the right conversation, they would be talking with their hands and letting all the gay juice seep out their pores slightly.
… but there was one Wolf who caught my eye.
We will call him Tattooed Model Wolf.
Toned, tatted, nice waves, super low key swagg, and fuckable to the 9th degree!!!!!!!!!!!
I also caught his eye and we played eye fuck all throughout the night.
He would make an effort to be around where I was.
He also knew the whole room, which was a little intimidating.
I remember walking by him and he was staring at me as I walked by.
He even knew the Vixen that invited me, but she never got a chance to introduce me.
I still made sure to get his info in sniffing out his trail.
It seems one of the D/L Foxes in her clique was trying to get at him too.
I’m sure I will meet him again…
I felt the strong sexual connection with him.
I want some of that… ASAP…
My night got me to thinking about what it takes to fit in behind the ropes.
Do you have to have a resume of hundreds to pull an Industry Wolf or Fox?
Do you need to just look good and “show up”?
And how do you penetrate the cliques so someone can penetrate “you”?
But being these made me want to know everyone and not be such an outsider with the insiders.
I have a lot to learn and I am a pretty fast learner lol.
Maybe this is conversation is only for people in the industry who know how it works,
but I started to wonder…
