Europeans really throw off my gaydar.  I mean, who can tell? Europeans --men and women -- all look homo to me.  The Gucci man-bag with aviator glasses and a huge scarf...not a good look for anyone.

Italy was incredible!  I didn't do anything remotely touristy, but had lots of dinners with local Romans and experienced real culture.  My friend and I also went to Belgium for the weekend and were invited to a champagne party. International fun!

I wish I could report back and tell you that I humped half the lezzies in Italy, but I only speak a few phrases in Italian and being in a country where you can't freely talk to people allows a lot of time for introspection.  I was able to listen to my inner voice, and I realized that I am still very much in love with my ex-girlfriend.

Since we broke up I went to therapy, she went to therapy, we went to therapy together.  We went on a few dates.  Our couple's counselor said at our last session, "Well, it seems to me that even when you are not defining it as a formal relationship, you both still choose to be together." 
I called her from Italy. "What are you doing tomorrow around 1:15?  Because that's when my flight is getting in."

It was the grand gesture, folks.  I flew home from Italy three days early, she picked me up at the airport and we didn't leave her bed for 48 hours.  Bliss, I tell you.  Pure bliss.


  1. OOOH! I can't think of a better way to end a fantastic vacation...lucky you!

  2. I sincerely wish you all of the fun... and none of the complications. :-)

    P.-S.: LOL on Europeans making it awefully hard to distinguish between gays and straights. You are so right!

  3. A wonderful end to a vacation, indeed! 48 hours in bed? Need to do that with my girlie. I hope you enjoyed your vacation!

  4. Oh wow. That is intense. And I'm a little bit jealous of your two days.

    In Germany I was also so, so, so confused. Gaydar apparently needs to be georeferenced to the specific location.

  5. LOL!!! My girlfriend and I play the "gay or European?" game all of the time! It's tricky...

  6. I live in the Netherlands - wait ...oooo thats why I am confused! now I get it...
