Emotion in Motion

Like an accidental tourist, I’ve found myself an accidental romance here in Central America. For those of you who questioned my mystical power of dating persuasion, I’ve now proven that it transcends borders, cultural and language barriers. I call it “accidental” because I was not looking for a “steady” (sounds so grandma’ish) or even a date. In fact, I had made a pact with myself to solely focus on my job for the first few months while I was here. Well, I’ve miserably failed at keeping the dating universe at bay, as I am deeply imbedded with Fransicso (literally and figuratively…smirk). The good news is, my job concentration level hasn’t suffered as a result.

My previous observations remain. We are completely different individuals. Our life experiences are diametrically opposed and on paper we make no sense. He’s 26 for starters. Not normally in my dating target demo. But I must say, there’s something insatiable about being with a younger guy. Note to self for all you naysayers, Demi Moores of the universe are on to something. But our ages are only the tip of the “how different can we be” iceberg. There’s not one inch of our lives that share similarities. But I find that challenging in a good way. Learning to tolerate human differences is what real relationships are about. It’s good practice for me specifically, ask my last boyfriend. I know this “thing” I have has an expiration date. I’m not living in Costa Rica for the rest of my life. And even if it ends a month from now, I’m fine with that too. I’m learning a great deal about myself in the process.

We had a fantastic weekend in Quepos. Some beaches there are...um...clothing optional ;)

He is hot. Who wants to be seeing someone that is exactly like them anyways. Plus there is almost something about the innocence of a younger man. By the way, did I say he is hot and at least he likes to read, so, you can at least discuss literature.LOL
