it feels good to be home. well, my home away from home....

so, i met him at the airport. as he exited, we recognized each other right away. i was quite happy to still feel the attraction. although......i have a problem with his teeth..... those of you that know me, know bad teeth is a pretty big turn off for me. they are all there....just rather stained and some chipped. but, hey.....i thought, maybe i can overlook this.....we have too many other things in common.
so we went to the hotel and checked in. chatted a bit and decided to head out for some lunch and to play tourist. we had a wonderful lunch and some very nice conversation at a little cafe just across from the astronomical clock. as we passed the orchestra house he was stopped by a guy handing out programs for the night's show. he wanted to go...i really did too, but, i also knew i had nothing to wear! he then tortured me by taking me shopping all over the city for an evening gown, shoes, stockings - something rather difficult to find so late in the afternoon - to dress me up for the orchestra. (i truly hate shopping and since i am here as a student it never occurred to me to bring dressy). he sent me home to dress while he went back to the hotel and did the same. the orchestra was fantastic! (i thought of you, triquet! ) the conductor, Jiří Kout, was so passionate, it was as if the music emanated from him. we were in the very first row and it was a wonderful experience. i've never been so close. :)

the municipal house is stunning. i know lots of tourists decide, at the last minute, to attend, but i was surprised at the amount of people there in jeans. if i hadn't found something to wear, i would have begged out, not imagining going so casual! but, now i know, and really would like to go again. after, we went to the bottom floor of the municipal house to "the oldest bar in prague" - the american bar. after listening to the orchestra the sounds there were a bit confusing! they were playing some old american music that mixed with the accordion in the restaurant next door! it was pretty bad. ;)
so...back to the hotel room. the part you are waiting for, right? well, you are in for a disappointment because all i am going to say, is a few well deserved and over eager orgasms and a few little bruises.....but, overall, not what i was expecting. yet.....first times can be a little awkward, so i wasn't ready to give up yet.
the next morning....a very sleepy me went home for coffee, a shower and clothes. not sleepy because we had wild sex all night, sleepy because he snores! i don't mean just a little wheezing cartoony snore....but a freight train running through the bed snoring. i am, by the way, a very, very light sleeper. the last two nights i put in my ear phones and cranked up the ipod....basically listened to music and played solitaire on my ipod all night. i will sleep like a baby tonight. i've never liked to sleep with anyone with whom i am not intimately, very emotionally involved. i am one of those crawl out of bed, get dressed and go home after girls. :)
i welcome my own bed tonight.
more touristy stuff, delicious meals and amazing wines. i have to say, he has impeccable taste for wine. he also brought me two lovely bottles from france that i will open after exams. i can't say i didn't have a good time. i can say sexually and BDSM wise, i am somewhat disappointed and a bit frustrated. he wants me to spend the summer with him in france and i don't yet know how to tell him. i really don't want to hurt his feelings and i know he has "very strong feelings" for me. the really sad (and, ok, maybe shallow part) is that if it weren't for the teeth, i may be able to get past other parts....or at least see if they develop. what do you do? tell someone, "fix your teeth and we'll talk?" if he hasn't by now, he doesn't care.
so......all the nervousness, anticipation and trepidation is gone.....
now, i need to focus on studying for exams.... then, perhaps, i will dabble a bit more in "the search"

"i've never liked to sleep with anyone with whom i am not intimately, very emotionally involved. i am one of those crawl out of bed, get dressed and go home after girls."

I don't like sleeping with other people either. It's nice to go to bed with someone, but at some point during the night I usually get up and go to my own bed, even if I am intimate and emotionally involved with the person I've gone to bed with. Like you I'm also a light sleeper and the sound of another person's snoring will keep me awake and piss me off all night long.

I can relate.

P.S. Nice icon pic.

after the third night, i have to admit the lack of sleep was starting to make me growl a bit.... i just smiled when he asked if his snoring kept me awake. ;)

This is precisely why I don't sleep with other people, especially people who snore. I don't know about you, but when I'm in bed with someone who snores, I will toss, turn, and sigh, all the time thinking that the snorer can feel my frustration, but they can't. It's terribly irrational to expect an unconscious person to know that I'm irritated and stop snoring, but that's what my mind does, and it will make me more and more pissed off as I lie there listening to them snore, and they're not getting the hint that I'm pissed off, damn it! Eventually I get to the point where I almost hate that person, and I don't want to do that.

So I just get up and go to another room. I've found it's much easier to tell a person, "yes, you snore and snince I don't want to end up hating you, I will leave the bed at some point during the night" than to pretend everything is fine. It's usually not an issue, but if it is an issue, I'd take it as a sign that maybe this relationship isn't going to work. But that's just me.

I like to sleep alone. I toss, I turn, I snore, and I just like to have the whole bed to myself. I don't mind falling asleep with someone, but I don't feel the need to spend the entire night with another person in my bed.

But I guess that makes it kind of hard for you, if you're in a hotel or a small apt. Could ear plugs be an option? I can wear them when there aren't any other options, but I have really sensitive ears and I've had problems with ear plugs before, so I'm not about to get in the habit of wearing them every night. In my case earplugs are an emergency fix only.

we were at his hotel. i just listened to my iPod all night.... this is probably why i am so tired today still. i also slept late in the morning because when he got up, i went to sleep and he let me sleep in.... til 11 on monday. so my schedule is all fucked up now....i am usually up by 7 at the latest.
i had a good time over the weekend though....so you get the bad with the good, or vice-versa...or whatever. i'm too tired ;)

You don't sound shallow at all. Let's see: disappointing sex and BDSM, bad teeth, and snoring. That's enough to ruin it no matter how good he is at selecting wine. It's wonderful that you don't want to hurt his feelings, and I'm sure you can find a way to let him go with compassion.

Incidentally, M didn't snore when I met him, but he's started in the last year. I can't remember the last time I slept through the night uninterrupted when we were both home. I use earplugs, but sometimes he's so loud they don't help, or they irritate my ears and I have to remove them. It's making my life rather challenging!

thanks :) i am really disappointed myself. we are still talking and i love how intellectually compatible we are, but it isn't always enough, is it?
i can just imagine how very cranky (thus always in trouble) i can be without enough sleep days on end. no way i can imagine sleeping with him on a regular basis....in any capacity, really. quite sad.....
we need a cure for snoring :)

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
