Things Discovered While Job Hunting: a Craigslist Fetishist to my Encounter

A months that are few, we placed on a task on Craigslist. It isn’t from the ordinary. A writing is run by me company and look at writing adverts on Craigslist with regularity. My interest is piqued whenever I run into advertisements looking fiction authors. “You mean you need to spend us to compose fiction?” my eager brain asks. “Yes, please!”

The ad I found was a bit…interesting in this case. It went such as this:

I will be enthusiastic about having a story that is short, about three to five pages in total, the style being truly a twenty- or thirty-something professional girl whom wears high heel pumps frequently despite putting up with base dilemmas. The design might be person that is 3rd into the types of “chick lit.” It might additionally be person that is first into the design of a web log entry. What exactly is a “day when you look at the life” like of a female who willingly sacrifices comfort therefore the wellness of her legs for excruciatingly stunning footwear?

To express an alarm didn’t stop in my own mind screaming “Weird” towards the top of its warbley lung area will be, needless to say, a lie. But being the hopeless author I applied anyway that I am. We thought hey, possibly this individual is trying to make use of a media that are social for offering footwear. Or possibly it is allowed to be for a women’s website or publication having a funny take on “the things we do for beauty.” Ends up, I need to have trusted my instincts.

My application apparently impressed. A guy reacted saying we seemed ideal for the duty. He wished to understand what approach I would personally try this tale. We shot straight back a response that is quick i really could come up with a retail worker whom wears exceedingly stylish footwear to create a bit of glamour to her time. Evidently, he enjoyed this basic concept and desired to chat via IM.

Fortunately, I experienced currently Googled this person at the same time. Of course, i did son’t respond to his final e-mail or agree to a talk. Used to do the thing that is closest to running far from a person online possible: ignore, ignore, ignore.

Therefore, exactly just what did my crafty* Googling arrive?

To start with, a Twitter account dedicated to shoes. Particularly, “sexy” shoes. He made many replies that are ladies asking what footwear these were wearing if they’d spent a small fortune of footwear.

I’m shoe that is talking, right here. And never that cutesy, “oh I favor to purchase footwear therefore I have a shoe fetish” thing so people that are many to hand out. I am talking about a genuine deal, genuine footwear fetish. Unfortuitously, that is not where this whole tale concludes.

Evidently, this person does not simply love super high heeled footwear. He really loves shoes that make women’s feet hurt. I’m sure the footwear by by themselves are mighty interesting, but the fact which they produce a woman pain give him undeniable pleasure.

High heel shoes are not enough. They should harm, too.

*Okay, so that it wasn’t crafty. Simply typing in a true title, really. At the very least he ended up beingn’t hiding their kinks.

A whole lot worse, he really loves it when ladies have bunions. He also asked ladies on Twitter when/if they certainly were having surgery that is painful their painful bunions. This led us to uncover the account of some other writer who came across an ad that is similar posted months early in the day and who’d taken this thing a step further: she actually published him an account. From her account, it wasn’t a poor experience, and whom have always been we to evaluate? I recently got weirded out with all the possibility of getting to converse with this person.

Since it seemed really for me which he didn’t just want a story written (that it appears he would’ve actually taken care of) but he wanted that discussion. The lead as much as the final final result ended up being quite definitely an integral part of the ability. I might were expected questions regarding my shoes, then my legs, then any defects my legs had. I would personally have already been expected for photos. And I also just couldn’t handle that.

Don’t misunderstand me. I’m no prude. I’ve taken a stab at erotica and would again write it. But this just wasn’t my thing.

By the end of the afternoon, this person desired a relationship with whomever ended up being composing their tales, even yet in simply an fictional way. And you, it is possible to avoid making yourself (or your feet) a person’s fetishistic target to some extent while you can’t control what people think of. It sort of enables you to like to protect the human body in a wool scarf, does not it? Damn, some body out there’s most likely into that, too.

Thank god I didn’t mention I used to dance while having true to life, non-imaginary (albeit, small) bunions.
