Men confuse me- this is not news to most people who know me.
So- to set up the scenario: I won a trip to Vegas. Set up a plan to go with a friend of mine. Friend got great new job and can't make it- then it turns out someone else I know was planning on going that weekend anyway. So I invite him-
Thing is- we are also...dating. I guess. Still figuring all that out to be honest. Anyway- we'll be sharing the plane, hotel room and lots of time together.
So I get this great idea- I am going to be so close to Disneyland, why not drive out? He's never been, so it's a fabulous opportunity for me to get out there and share it with someone who has never seen DL. Plus yeah, I like him, so it's a pleasure for me to do.
He said he would LOVE to go and he is looking forward to going- and I can tell he is being honest about it- but he suddenly seems to think I am sharing some big part of myself by taking him. He said it would be like him talking me into going to his favorite place in the world (which is in NY). Not exactly the same, but close. He doesn't seem to think this is a BAD thing, but I am just baffled.
We'll be traveling together, staying in the same room, spending 4 days together- that's a long date. We talk all the time- email, chat, phone....hours of conversation. We get along shockingly well, are frighteningly compatible and share many many things in common. No, we have not known each other for years- but sometimes it feels like it has been a long time. Why would this be a big deal? Even if it is a good thing, why would he see it that way?
I see it as a great chance to go to Disneyland and if I can share it with someone I like who has never been there- so I can see DL through new eyes- so much the better.
What am I missing here?
