I got back from Mexico a few days ago. I was there for a week and went with two of my married girl friends. My one request: A social resort and not a lame romantic newlywed couple resort like I was stuck at the last time I went to Mexico.
We arrived in the early evening and immediately I could tell we were going to meet a zillion people. Everyone was in a good mood, social and it’s like Canada invaded that resort that night. My mind was of course on meeting cute guys and my friends were on board with scoping them out for me too. Sitting at one of the large bars that first night, we noticed two guys sitting on the other side, across from us. One of them was super cute and definitely looking back. The bartender did something known as “rainbow shots” where they mix up some concoction and as they pour it out into about 7-8 shot glasses, the colour of the shots changes from green to yellow to orange to red. It’s obviously based on liquid density, but it’s pretty cool to watch as they pour it out. Anyway, after handing out shots to people nearby, we had two extra. I looked over to where guy and his friend were to call them over to have them, but then had disappeared. Oh well.
We didn’t see them again until the third night. I was chatting to some guy who turned out to be a huge douchebag and my friend had wandered away (because she didn’t like the guy). I looked to where she had gone and she was over talking to cute guy and his friend. I headed over and we all got introduced. I’ll use his real name because I’m never going to see him again. His name is James and his friend was Anthony. James and I got along really really well and talked for a long time. And he was super adorable. A lot younger than me and shorter than me, but none of that seemed to matter because I knew it was all in good Mexico fun and after a week, I’d never see him again. We hung out until my friend got super drunk and I made the decision to lure her up to the room and to bed. So bye to James for the night.
I am not a one night stand type of girl and I told my friends that if I was to hook up with a guy on the trip, it would be someone I met and hung out with more that one day and things just kind of led there. Still want to actually like the guy, but at the same time knowing it wouldn’t go anywhere past a few days.
I saw that in James. We got along well and I could see us getting to know each other better. Sadly that didn’t really happen. I saw James around throughout the week, but we were on different “schedules”. Me and my friends were on the “pace drink by the pool during the day and in the evening, but go to bed around 11-12″ schedule. James and his friend were on the “Party until 4am and then sleep until 2pm the next day because of hangover from night before and then party until 4am again” schedule. The age difference was seen here. Haha. Us 30 year olds didn’t want to waste our trip sleeping and feeling like crap. We had adventures and went on excursions and didn’t feel sick while doing it. So because of the differences in our groups, we’d be heading to bed as soon as James would start his evening.
One night, my friends did stay up late and I guess James was telling them he liked me and wished I’d stay up later. Well, the next night happened to be our second to last night there and we had zero plans the next day. I was done with the sun and told myself that I could get wasted and spend the next day in bed if needed and it wouldn’t matter. So I started drinking. We watched a Grease performance which was awesome and Drunk Me made her appearance. And with Drunk Me came drunk me wondering where James was. We finally found him around 11pm (his night just starting) and immediately I found out that he and his friend were heading to a club downtown Cabo. Well, that sketches me out and I didn’t want to leave the resort, so sadly I didn’t even get to hang out with him that night either. Oh well, I tried. And by that point we were leaving in two days so I stopped caring. We spent the rest of out evening hanging out with a very nice fireman, a hot NHL referee and their wives. Very fun group and it was a blast!
I saw James two days later as everyone was gathering their bags to the buses at the front that would take us to the airport. Hugged, said bye and that was that. He’s from a province across the country from me so I’ll never see him again and that wasn’t the plan anyway. All in all, it was a fantastic trip with my fantastic girl friends and it was a much needed break from real life!
At the same time, I was excited to get back home because I start a new awesome job tomorrow! Not only is it an awesome job in the career direction I want to go, but I’ll be surrounded by lawyers, cops and sheriffs. Any guesses what I’ll be doing?
