In between rounds were the usual questions about countries of origin and travel plans, where ix were from and where we hoped to go. The men feigned shock and started heckling me good naturedly, of course. One even went so far as to claim that three quarters of the women he slept with while traveling had boyfriends back home.
The airport goodbye with the heart wrenching hugs and kisses, the looks that are the last for months, and the tears are because both of you know it. This kind of chosen absence leaves a different kind of emptiness.
Despite what the men in Mission Beach say, if you want weeeks stay faithful, you. You know what you have to. You have to find the balance between loss and excitement.
And that my friends, is the difficult part, striking out on your own while girlfriend is gone for a couple of weeks managing to how to meet younger men the home fires burning. Realizing that the few hours when your time zones overlap and are able to talk, are always the most inconvenient times of the day but making the call. Occasionally missing out on things where you are, to be part of moments taking place girldriend of miles away.
And occasionally saying no to someone you love, to say yes to.
