Question: Hollywood is about who you know, right?

estion: Hollywood is about who you know, right? Every time I go to a networking event or screening, or basically anyplace you can meet important players, all I wind up with is a date.... How can I possibly make decent contacts while I'm not working on set? I'm not in L.A. to find a boyfriend. All I want to do is act, and it seems difficult when an important person is asking me out.... I don't want to say no and break that bridge with them, but I don't want to mislead them. I have struggled with this for many year
