After the drama with Honey #3 and all that has gone on with her like me buying a ticket for her to Mexico and the ticket going unused, 2 weeks ago, I was standing behind my bar and I made a proclamation: “Dang it, I’m going to take SOMEONE to Playa del Carmen with me this time.” A girl at the end of the bar shouted out, “I’ll go.” I looked at her and I asked, You want to go? Fine, You’re going. What’s your name?” and with that short conversation, I had a travel companion. I booked the flights. I booked the 2 bedroom Condo. It was pretty much set. And without as much as seeing this girl again, we met at the airport this past Monday and away we went. So, people want to know how it went with a total stranger in Mexico?
Well, First of all, she is a nice girl. She has lots of personality. I shared the fact that we had just met with everyone. That was a conversation piece of the week for us. but it didn’t seem to bother her at all. We pretty much went everywhere together for the first couple of days but by the end of the trip, she did venture out a little bit on her own. Did we hook up? Not at all. It was never that sort of trip. But even after a total “hook up free” week in London, there still was not a drop of hooking up between us. This may be hard to believe but it never even came up by either of us. It rained (off and on) during the second and third days of the trip so we did stay in the condo quite a bit but we would spend a lot of that time, in the restaurant, in my bar, or watching TV. And there wasn’t a drop of hooking up.
We were the couple in Mexico that we strictly there as friends. We were emailing and texting while sitting at the bar. We were on our phones and preoccupied with things other than each other. It was almost annoying. I even made the joke once that I was so glad she came to Mexico with me so that I could watch her text. I don’t know if she was doing it so that she would appear busy or if she was just THAT busy, or what. Either way, we were busy DOING everything else but each other. Do I have regrets? NO. But at the same time, I won’t be doing it again. I have done it and I feel now I can scratch “going on a trip with a woman that I just met” off of my bucket list. By the end of the trip, I think we may have been ready to part ways. Maybe it was the fact that we had developed ZERO relationship over the past 4 days. We hadn’t REALLY talked all that much. We had been together but only in the physical sense. We hadn’t really talked. I can’t really tell you much about her personality or life. I can tell you that her dad dropped her off at the airport and that is about it, but again, there are no regrets. If anything, I wish she may have at least “offered” to buy a round of drinks. But hey, I asked her to go on a trip so I can’t complain, right?…Offering would have been nice. But she did say thanks several times during the trip so, I’m not saying that she wasn’t appreciative.
I came home and all I could think was Kellie was right. Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea.
