Dating a celebrity
“So if they start coming on to you, it can be pretty irresisitible.”But, a huge body of experience shows, it’s actually a temptation the regular person would do well to resist.
Dating a celebrity is a challenging exercise for outsiders, even for James Packer, a billionaire Australian casino operator and the son of the late, legendary gambler Kerry Packer, who has reportedly dumped Mariah Carey.
The most famous turned out to be a guitarist in a band whose album did "very well" in Japan in 1987.
So I'm praying your dude is Lucian Freud, Jeff Koons, or Damien Hirst. Forcing him to see you or stopping him from becoming engaged to "someone more special" is impossible.
As a Matchmaker and Date Coach, I am hired to help find single Bachelors and Bachelorettes love and figure out what has been keeping them from finding true love in the first place.

This lack of understanding of the tedious details of the normal world is a common complaint of the non-celeb dating the celeb.
