Re: Do you know this guy?

Well Namia, I wish you luck.

Having lived a good many years in one "vacation destination" or another though, I can not help but think that even if you find the guy and it's a great chat for a little while, there is truth in the whole "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" type thing (or in this case, Stockholm).

People on vacation like to get their flirt (and however much more) on, "knowing" that there can realistically be no strings attached. They can give whatever name, whatever age, whatever country of origin, and leave it so that they are the ones who determine whether they want to be found again or not. More often than not, they don't want to be found and it isn't for any shameful or hurtful reason, just that "fun time" is over and it's back to reality.

Further, if they DO want to be found, the "me" they are when on vacation very often is much, much different than the "me" they are in their day to day life.

Anyhow, really, good luck - hopefully you can reconnect with him, even if it's just for a fun chat for a little while.

Are you insinuating that the guy she is looking for looks like that on his day to day life:

Re: Do you know this guy?

Rumour has it he has seen the thread, and was last seen at the airport buying a one way ticket to a far remote destination.

He has seen there was some crazy ass woman hunting him down, and when realizing it was the girl he vaguely recalls pursuing as his last notch of the holiday, and she has assumed some romantic love dream, he is scared shitless and quit his job and ran, as any sane man would in this situation.

Re: Do you know this guy?

Cant Believe this thread is still up, bet the kid is running for his money just saying if I was a bloke in his position Id be scared to death.
Sounds like a plausible script for a horror movie, Like Kalahari Girl said Reality check.

Not necessarily so obviously, but actually in some way, yes.

It's a bit like the person you are (how much effort you put into looks and behavior) on a date vs the person you are at home... but to the tenth degree.

The "prince" is who you see on vacation (or in a woman's case, it's often Cinderella at the ball who is out there), but once home, he's "just" a frog. Nothing wrong with frogs at all, just make sure you're okay with someone who isn't a prince 100% of the time. That's all.

Re: Do you know this guy?

Namia, if he wanted to see you again he would have given you his town and phone number. Maybe, just maybe, he is in a sound relationship in Geneva, he was in Stockholm on business, Swedish girls have a reputation, he went to a club to check the possibilities, he remembered the woman at home, he had to work next morning, he went back to his hotel. This story has unfolded this way for me many, many, times.
