going through all the candidates, most of them have an ‘off’ moment at some point. honestly think i’m going to have to say the first night i made out with my ex
everything by chance aligned perfectly for us to share a room (our mates had booked a bunch of Travelodge rooms and sleeping arrangements were random). i didn’t think he was actually interested in me - i thought he was asexual - but after 12 pints in the day i tested the water with a long hug and he didn’t pull away for aaaages so i thought “HMMMMM let’s see what happens then” and went in for the kiss and was just amazed he kissed me back.
neither of us knew the other had feels and so it was this delightful thing of slowly coming around to realise that, yes, unexpectedly, he liked me back and him realising that yes, unexpectedly, I proper liked him and it wasn’t just the alcohol. we had this really lovely evening of just making out more or less non-stop for 7 hours with giddy exuberance and smiling loads and forgetting about everyone else. also suddenly had all these exciting ideas for teasing him that i had never previously thought of.
then at 11am one of our mates came in to tidy so we had to pretend nothing had happened but also wanted to make out more, so kept giving reasons why this guy had to go back to the room he’d slept in, then eventually i pretended me and my ex had to go to the other room to check on someone, so as soon as we got into the corridor i did this sneaky thing where we ended up making out again and he pinned me against the wall of the corridor and it was just so EXCITING
thank u Milton Keynes Travelodge xxx
