BM07 Playa Romance Tales! (Ooh la la.)

Post by starsonesp » Wed Sep 05, 2007 11:26 pm

It's almost as much of a cliché that BM fosters temporary relationships like it destroys longer-term ones. Like alien abduction or the heartbreak of psoriasis or Playa bike theft, you never think it's going to happen to you. But then some damn fool wanders in and gets all sassy and insidious and takes over yr soul for a day or three or seven. So, you unlucky bastards (and count me among them this time), let's validate all the truisms with pulp-novelly tales of fleeting Playa love from BM07! Get all eye-glinty with someone special (outside the confines of the Stiffy Lube, that is)? Have a two-hour fling that turned into a regular thing? Meet the human of your dreams, give or take a language or an ocean or a continent? How did you deal with the Doppler-shift back to the Default World? Is it possible that they - *gasp* - might actually shape up to more than a short'n'sweet lakebed mirage, or should we all just get over ourselves already and get back to being lonely like everybody else?

From my camp's experience alone, I know I'm not the only person to fall in love on the Playa this year - perhaps genuine, perhaps illusory, but oh-so-very YES PLEASE - so let's cough 'em up. Been there before? Went there again? How'd it go, who were the guilty parties, and - most importantly - what next? Kleenex and Haagen-Dazs to be provided in force, so pull up a chair and lay out the cast of characters...

[color=indigo][/color] wish i coulda reconnected with the charming lost and cold deep playa alchemist i met on Tuesday...
what fun!
i enjoyed escorting him home to virgitarian camp and would have loved to make more of his offer...

but as far as playa-love goes... i think my phlorida phriend has the best story:

hooked up with a guy for intimate fun, was telling us about him the next day, a few days later... her comment was "This sucks! I didn't want to fall in love! I just wanted someone fun and interesting to f*ck! Why Love? why?"

(happy ending... even though they live a continent apart... he will be visiting her for the next week)

yeah love!

Hmm, my playa romance was actually once I'd left the playa. He's good friend of mine whom I hadn't seen in a while He was great support through the event and I thought he deserved some follow up TLC at home. It had more or less been building the entire time we were there and it was fantastic. He lives far away and neither of us want a long-term thing, but I sure am glad it happened. I'll be visiting him soon, too.....

Did anyone see the fashion show in center camp later in the week? It was like a bikini contest during sprink break in Florida. Guys lined up sucking down beers and whistling, hooting, and hollaring.

I would have loved to meet a great woman who is cool enough to enjoy Burning Man. But, it seemed like most decent women were a little turned off by being hit on by guys with their packages on display, or who were like, so, like, deep, and like, alternative, and like, cool, and like totally wasted.

If I was a hot woman there, I would have probably been ready to load a flame thrower with mace after a few days. I watched a few guys working it so deperately that I felt like saying, "Go in your tent and wack off already!!! How many versions of 'you ain't getting any' and 'no' does this poor girl have to give you before you go away??? I'm getting annoyed just listening to the bullshit you're slinging!!".

To the woman from NY we met at the Russian bar in deep playa, you have the patience of an angel. How you didn't knee that guy in the crotch after the first hour of his deep and meaningful views on sex just amazed me.

If something happens on the playa and there's a connection, awesome. If you're going out there to get laid and suck down beer, you just don't get it.
