So I liked to say that I was one of the unicorns of TPR... i.e. straight, single, female... just not that many of us
Well now there's one less unicorn!
I was at SFDK for the season pass preview for S:UF as a single rider, hanging out with other single rider enthusiasts (mostly ACErs), and talking about TPR. I think it may have been during the breakdown when I was standing on the stairs and noticed someone with a 2012 WCB shirt wayyyy in the back and said, "Oh look, there's a TPR member!" Next time I went through, I passed right by the same guy and was like, "Yeah! Go TPR!!!" and high-fived him. In my head I was like, "DAMN, this guy is cute... he's probably gay."
Shortly after, I was left a single rider again. By the time I got to the station, I still didn't have a buddy so I figured I'd just be riding alone. Next thing I know, I turn around and the TPR guy (rolercstrluvr) is standing right behind me smiling ear to ear. I was so happy to hang out with him and ride the coaster... we kept marathoning it until noon.
Then, we decided to hang out together the rest of the day. We did many of the animal exhibits and goofed off and had fun. We both felt an instant connection and just decided to make it FBO.... so now we also have to make it TPRO.
We like to describe our feelings like this: If most people's relationships are like a wacky worm, our relationship is like this:
Which we hope to ride together some day.
