Insider Tips A woman writing anonymously in Vice UK explains that a particular risk of hanging around with drug dealers, based on her personal experience, is that you don't know when you might find something illegal in your pockets or bag. If you get picked up with drugs, you can and will be charged criminally.If you blame it on your lover, don't expect that tactic to go over very well.Love is hard to find and all the gurus tell you to keep an open mind -- don't decide who is right for you just based on what they do.
Reading that, I can’t believe how cliché it all seems. I tried the “I couldn’t handle it if you went to jail” angle, as well as the “I hate your asshole friends” angle. It was one of our good days; quiet, silence enveloping us, comfortable.
And I guess it was; textbook smart-nerdy-girl gets seduced by the “dark” side. What I saw was a sweet guy, in touch with his emotions, trying to kick a bad habit. The troubles started when he got his own apartment. I think we were talking about our feelings for each other, something we hardly ever did.
Either out of a need to pay rent, or because freedom made him feel invincible, he got it in his mind that there wasn’t anything wrong with dealing on the side. The worst thing about dating a drug dealer are the phone calls, closely followed by the impromptu visits. Then that dreaded ringtone sounded, closely followed by the sound of a car engine in the driveway.
I learned to hate that ringtone, and dread the sound of approaching footsteps on wooden stairways. I closed my eyes, and I clearly remembered thinking how sleazy his friends were for giving him a two-second warning with that phone call.
How high-end (pun intended) is this dealer's business?
