When I first met Rachel Lisa at the on Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta, I knew that this was no ordinary working girl. After finding out she was a serial , it wasn’t long before I had uncovered her need for a stable, wallet-toting stud that wasn’t afraid to play ball.
She certainly wasn’t the shy sort and after finding out about her love for Montrose men, I was especially surprised to find that women’s Lib took a front seat for completely erroneous reasons. And I wasn’t shocked that Rachel Lisa would rather take home the grand prize than wallow in self respect. And when it came to relationships, this La Crescenta local knew exactly how to get what she wanted—an intruder that would play nice.

Do you live in the neighborhood?
I just moved back to La Crescenta from the Chicago area. I have a place here and in Chicago, as well.
Where do you go to meet singles in your area?
I like a lot. There are always nice people working there and a good crowd of guys.
What are the three qualities you look for in a man?
The first would have to be a sense of humor. I need someone to make me . I want someone who is giving, too.
What do you want them to give?
Love, of course. I need someone who is stable with goals. I would love someone who is just very real and down to earth.
Any nightmare dating stories?
God. Where do I begin? One time I went on a date to eat with this guy at the and afterwards he said, “So, you’re paying?” And I was like WTF and he says I should pay because I was the one that asked him out. Which I did not. He approached me.
No way. So, did you pay?
I had to pay because he said he didn’t bring his wallet. And then afterwards we made out.
What?! Like second base make-out?
Oh my gosh!
It my own defense it was a few years ago. We met through a blind date.
Any other good stories?
I dated this guy for about three months. We were set up through a mutual friend. He was a and would serenade me all the time with his guitar. He was cheap, I remember, and he would take me to eat at or McDonald’s and get me a happy meal.
Good grief. What base did you hit with this guy?
Happy meals are underrated.
He was ten years older than me and very handsome. The thing was that I thought he liked girls. Turns out that he also liked guys.
Wow. Did you continue seeing him?
It’s good to know that you have a breaking point.
I also had a first date recently with a guy who fainted.
I hate to ask.
Oh, but there was this one guy a few years back that wanted to play “Intruder.”
Should I ask?
He once told me to turn the lights off in my house and he would go outside. While he was outside, I was supposed to go in my bedroom, turn off the lights and hide under the bed.
Don’t tell me.
So, I did it and he came in and I was pretending to scream like I was scared and—
—I think this is a PG rated website. So, did you continue to date him? Wait…of course you did.
Yes! (Laughs). He was kind of and interesting. But he turned out to be a bit strange.
I used to be very naïve when it came to dating.
You don’t say…
I didn’t have much experience with relationships, long term. My other girlfriends and I go out once a week or so.
I have a date! He is taking me to a surprise dinner somewhere in Montrose possibly, he says. This is the same guy who fainted.
What would be the most romantic Valentine’s Day ?
Going to a good would be really fun. He could bring a picnic and it would be great. I love to just go for walks, too. I like browsing Honolulu Avenue on the .
What would you say to a man out there that thinks they would like to spend quality time with a lady such as yourself.
I guess if you’re not weird…or won’t take me to McDonalds or expect me to pick up the tab and have a job, then we can talk.
High hopes, girl…high hopes.
