His girlfriend had to work on Sunday, so I mentioned how we go early to the Palengke (public market) and later to the mall for the rest of the marketing. He wanted to experience life here so he was interested in joining us. We then planned for his girlfriend to come to our house after work and they could have dinner at our home.
We all got along so well it looked like it would be good being his companion and tour guide the days his girlfriend was working. Each day we would meet in the morning, go for coffee, drive around, eat lunch and just enjoy talking and getting to know each other.
On Wednesday, he came with me when I played bridge and watched or took a walk around the area to take photos. On Thursday, he came with me to the group Bisaya lessons with the expat group.
Since he contacted me before my plan to return to the U.S., he brought me a few items I needed. At times, I would buy coffee and he would buy lunch. Sometimes it was the other way. We would talk about different things and enjoyed each other’s company.
He also had the idea, when his, now, fiancé comes to America, to have her fly to Las Vegas and he will join her there. He said I could be the Best man too.
Sometimes you meet someone, there is not click, and you each try to avoid each other. Sometimes it started well but each other’s lifestyles are too different that you do not see each other often and sometimes a bond develops.
I never thought when I started this site I would have people wanting to meet me when they visit. I also never imagined my site would turn into advice to others. From this, I am glad I have met so many people on line and in person and was able to assist in any way. It makes me feel good when, in some small way, I have touched someone’s life and helped.
