    Okay, so on Saturday evening I was out for a meal and drinks with a big group of my girly mates from my old school. One of the girls who's really outgoing kept chatting to various guys who worked at the bar, including one bloke who was DJing. At one point she called me over to where they were talking and told me he'd said he wanted to sign me up as a model, and showed me a book she was looking through which was full of copies of newspaper cuttings about him (things to do with launching girl bands, all showbiz kinda stuff). He was telling me about his work and that his brother was about to launch a clothing line in the family name and all this stuff, and told me he liked the look of me because of my height. I figured I had nothing to lose by giving him my mobile number, and he jotted down my clothes size, shoe size etc (all of which he guessed spot on just by looking at me) and showed me a booklet where he'd taken similar details from a few other girls in the last few months. I honestly didn't think anything would come of it, but last night he left a message on my voicemail. He wants to speak to me today and hopefully meet with me tomorrow to discuss all this stuff further. I haven't called him back yet.

    So - do I go, or not? I'm always immensely sceptical about opportunities like this and just suspect everyone's trying to dupe me, but at the same time, if it is the real deal I don't want to waste the chance. This guy seemed to know what he was talking about, was quite happy chatting to all my friends and so on. But I'm really in two minds about it.

    I'm thinking maybe go along to meet him but with a friend or my boyfriend in tow for back-up... but I just don't know. What do you all think? Anyone else had similar experiences, for good or bad?

    Definitely take a friend with you, and better still a friend who's just as skeptical as you are. You don't want to be sat there not entirely convinced about it and have a friend sat there going 'yeah definitely, you should go for it' etc.

    I would avoid going. He probably wants you to star in some amateur porn

    go but make sure people know where you are going and bring someone along with you. A strong bloke.
    You could also be honest and tell him because of skepticism you will bring someone along.

    this all sounds weird to me. Why would he be DJing and actually have a serious job where he recruits girls for bands/modelling...

    Whatever it is, it can't be that serious. Unless he said he was just helping out a friend who's really in the business...

    I have to agree here - if he was a proper recruiter then surely that would be his full time job and he wouldn't be working in a bar. However it cannot hurt to go if you take your boyfriend with you.

    i don't know your boyfriend so i can't say for certian but some bfs may be over-protective and not like the idea of you going, and if it is real then hold you back, so i don't know but maybe you'd feel better going with a male friend rather than your bf....it's up to you.

    I met sommeone like that, at some dinner who was impressed by my knowledge, language skills, and so on. He offered me a job, and told me about how people like me can get amazing jobs, and so on. He gave me his email, and cell phone number but I never contacted him. Its your choice personally, I wouldn't rely on other people since you are the one who is getting into this not us, but if you decide to go in the end as people said bring a friend along.
