Story submitted by a StayUncle guest
I am a 41 year old married man frustrated with my life.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not one of those crying sympathy seekers looking for a shoulder to lean on. Instead I decided to take the situation in my hands and act on it.
I started chatting on some chat sites to try and find someone who is probably in a similar situation or is just looking for some plain fun.
Last year I came across this wonderful lady from north india who shared a similar story.
We connected over chat and email and we realized that this is something beautiful and can culminate into an intimate friendship.
But the gentleman in me woke up and said that ” how can you cheat! how dare you cheat!!!”
For a moment I heard the voice of that gentleman and broke up with her for a good 3 months.
Unfortunately I wasn’t very good at controlling my emotions and finally one day in October last year I called and we spoke… and chatted… and it took me awhile to assure her that I wasn’t running away again.
I had been visiting the Stay Uncle site ever since it was launched but I never had anyone with whom I could share a room.
That day finally came in November last year. I went to her city and booked a hotel through Stay Uncle.
I was scared. Scared of being found out. Scared of being caught cheating. But somewhere I thought these guys (Stay Uncle) really know the pain of people who want to be together in India.
So I put my fears aside and checked in.
My friend followed after 20 minutes and after taking her ID the girl at the reception escorted her to my room…. and that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
I went to the same hotel after a month and a half and the same thing happened. We had a wonderful time which brought us even closer than before.
My last visit was 4 days back and this time I booked a different hotel because I didn’t want the guys at the first hotel remembering me or my friend. (I know.. I was being paranoid but hey a little caution never killed anyone!)
So this time I booked another hotel not very far from the first one and here also I didn’t have any problems checking in or out.
What happened in those few hours in these rooms is something that I am going to cherish for the rest of my life.
It’s not something new or something really wild…but it was a beautiful experience and expression of love that had gone out of my life completely.
Has it changed anything between me and my wife ? No it hasn’t but it has definitely shown me that life is beautiful and lots of things to look forward to.
Thanks Blaze, Sanchit and whoever is behind Stay uncle.. I am sure you get to hear this a lot but really, you guys are rocking!!
