I’m being treated to a weekend away!!
An American switch friend who I have never met is coming to Australia for work and he is sweetly flying me out to spend the weekend with him.
When he mentioned the possibility a couple of months ago, I sort of shrugged non-committally and said I might be interested. I find that men *say* stuff like that all the time, and for whatever reason it never actually happens, so I don’t place much stock in those sorts of things.
This time, though, I have the plane tickets in hand and a fabulous 5 star hotel has been booked, so… squeeeeee!!
I suspect that some people think this happens with me *all the time*, wonderful men flying me here and there so that they can meet me *waves hand airily*. Trust me, it doesn’t, so I’m excited about it.
I have known the lovely American switch for… um… actually I have no idea how long. We have been in touch on and off for probably well over 12 months, with varying degrees of frequency of emails/IM chat/phone calls over the period. We get along really well, laugh a lot, and seem to have enough in common to make spending some time together seem like it would be fun.
For the romantics out there, he is not a potential for me, he is already attached *cue collective “awwwww”*. Kind of a shame because he is smart, attractive, and a complete sweetheart.
So the get-together is purely platonic, and even though I think he had a little crush in the early stages (heh, let’s see if he pipes up in the comments to say something about that!), I’m sure that has dissipated by now. I sent him some photos yesterday so he would recognise me since I had apparently never sent him any pictures previously (we were just friends, so it was irrelevant before now). Even though I am gorgeous (self rated!) I trust he will not be so overwhelmed by my awesomeness that it will become awkward.
We have no concrete plans really, but I expect it to be a pretty relaxed weekend of enjoying each other’s company, eating, drinking, lots of laughing, and doing a few touristy things. Oh, and we might talk about some kinky stuff, because, you know, common interests and all!
