Meet Justin. Justin is a 28 year old insurance agent from Oklahoma City, who just so happened to be single. When Justin committed to a billiards tournament in the Grand Bahamas, he didn’t think about what it would be like to go on vacation by himself. Realizing that going to paradise alone might not be as fun as with a date, Justin decided to join MissTravel.com in search for a travel companion.
Meet Haley. Haley is a 19 year old waitress from Denver. She had never been anywhere before, and didn’t even own a passport before she joined MissTravel.com. Haley was looking for a man who could be her partner-in-crime, someone who could make her dreams of travel a reality. After discovering MissTravel.com, she joined in hopes of finding an experience somewhat resembling an episode of “The Bachelorette”, but didn’t really expect to find someone like Justin.
After perusing dozens of profiles, Justin came across Haley’s and was immediately captivated by her girl-next-door good looks and charming personality. He reached out to Haley in hopes she would reciprocate his attraction, and the two began messaging through the website. After a week of texting and talking offline, Justin invited Haley to accompany him to the Bahamas. When she accepted, he booked her a room and a flight, and started making plans.
Haley and Justin continued getting to know each other in the week leading up to their trip. By the time they met face to face in the tiny Freeport Airport, they had slipped into any easy friendship, with the possibility of romance not far behind. “Justin and I got along so well before we met, that I was actually really nervous about meeting him in person,” says Haley. “By the time I landed in the Bahamas he was calling me “babe” and I was falling for this person I hadn’t even met yet. I was scared that it was all too good to be true. But when I walked out of the gate and he was standing there in baggage claim, all my worries disappeared.”
