Real stories about dating and relationships in New York City. Truth is more interesting than fiction.

Long Trip

I’ve spent the last 24 hours + in a car with a couple of friends.  Long story on why.  We’ve already driven through 3 and 1/2 states, soon to be 4.  We’re making great time, and having fun (the two giant bags of snack food we bought for the ride have helped to keep us jolly).

I’d just like to state for the record that I’ve never attempted a trip like this with a guy (one that I was romantically linked to).  Nor can I imagine doing so.

Perhaps it’s just that I have a limited imagination?  Or that I’ve never had the kind of relationship that was flexible enough to withstand this kind of abuse (3 strong-willed adults in a car speeding across the country, egads).  All I know is that just thinking of it makes me giggle.

Nope.  I can’t imagine it.

On a totally random tangent, I’ve decided to return to the dating world just as soon as we get back to NYC and I’ve had time unpack and recover from the trip.  I’m kinda over that other stuff.

Expect a return to your regularly scheduled blogposts tomorrow.  Promise.

    Maybe you can’t imagine being on a long road trip like that because you live in the city? To me, there is little better than hopping in the car and going … and going … and going. With so few distractions, the only thing to do is talk – sometimes about the strangest things.

    I also think you learn a lot about person by the way s/he drives.

    I couldn’t imagine it either really. Maybe if the person and I were really really good friends before anything romantic happened.

    Sometimes you need space away from your S.O, Hoping in a car and heading across the country isn’t going to help with that..at all. Maybe I’m a cynic though.

    That could be. I’m so rarely in cars, they are a completely foreign thing for me.

    You don’t sound like a cynic to me. I’m a big fan of space.
