Last Summer, ABC documented the first MissTravel trip in Cabo San Lucas, where Steven and Sibel met on a blind date in Mexico. This weekend, they are re-airing their episode so we thought it would be interesting to see where they are at nearly one year later.
Steven and Sibel live on opposite coasts. Steven is a financial advisor living in San Diego, and Sibel, a consultant living in New York. The two met on MissTravel.com at the end of May when Steven invited her to accompany him on a trip to Cabo. Though they talked on the phone and on Skype before their trip, they did not meet face to face until they met up in Mexico.
Steven had rented out a gorgeous villa right on the beach and set up an amazing weekend for Sibel that included a private candlelit dinner on the beach, boating, snorkeling, clubbing, and many long walks on the beach. They really hit if off during their trip and left as an established couple. Their bicoastal romance only lasted about a month however. Sibel was ready for a serious relationship, and Steven wasn’t ready for a bicoastal migration. So after five weeks of long distance dating, the couple called it quits. Steven has since rejoined MissTravel and is looking for new potential love interests to accompany him on his travels to Cabo.
Dating in general, usually takes time. You rarely find your perfect match on the first try, and it can be frustrating. But on a destination date, you learn a lot each other and can really measure your compatibility more accurately in a very short amount of time. Steven and Sibel figured out pretty quickly after they trip that they weren’t meant to be, but at least they have a great trip to look back on.
