The sweetest thing She asked for a bit of money to help her mother (who is still back in Cambodia- hence she 8767 s not in the 99% who live with family and she encouraged me to move in after seeing each other every day for the first three days) but then went out for five minutes. She came back saying 8775 Mother can wait this time I think we need this more! 8776 and showed me the ring she had chosen for me to give to her! Yes, its only been a week, yes it feels a bit insane but after asking her the previous night whether she really was serious about us, I got my answer and it warmed me to the heart, leaving me more fully alive than ever- you 8767 re totally right to put that point top of your list. So I 8767 m kind of nervous, keeping it secret a while, but exhilarated and hopeful that if we persevere and both want this to work equally it will. Again, you 8767 re right- she wasn 8767 t looking for a sex tourist. After meeting her on my way home from a few drinks on my first night in her town, chatting and exchanging contact details, I invited her out for lunch the following day, and I like to think showing I wanted to get to know her as a whole person, not just an object of desire removed many potential barriers at a stroke. In our week together we went to the cinema three times, averaged two meals a day out, lots of long walks, she beat me at pool (I 8767 m no shark, but only two girls had beaten me before and that was on a single game- but she beat me 8-6 the first time we played, only to let on later that she had worked in a pool club in the past, so had plenty practice) We went for long walks, to karaoke together (though she unlike me is too shy to sing). All in all we had as many of the experience building dates in a week, in a living together type setting as many new couples perhaps have in a few months, so perhaps this intensity is slightly different from the usual holiday romance of which only 8% lead to anything long term. (But pause and think of all the dates we go on over the years which are not in the holiday environment- Do those really have a much better success ratio? I buy a lottery ticket weekly in a dream of wild riches which a much much lower than 8% chance of hitting the jackpot. Richard Branson was not daunted when research said (only) 65% would fly with an airline called Virgin- he saw 65% of a huge industry like that as a huge success if it could be achieved- perhaps the same approach is needed in more situations.
