As told to Melanie Hearse Whimn February 27, Whimn I was in a long-term relationship for about six years. While our sex life was great, our relationship ran its course.
I had retrained a few years earlier and gone from working in retail just to earn money, to working in a higher stress industry that I really love. My partner was still working just for the pay cheque, so we had different mind-sets. My ex and I had a hot sex life - until he got a new girlfriend and I was left out in the cold.
One night I went out with work mates for an early dinner, and I shared an uber home with a colleague as it was dark when we left. We chatted about the traffic and his passengers that day, and I did the wedding ring check — all clear. Hip hip hooray for the sexy Uber driver. Whimn Then I asked him if he was in a relationship. What about if he gave me his number and I called him?
Would that be breaking the rules? He nodded towards a deck of his business cards with a grin. His phone pinged a few seconds later and without saying anything else, he parked the car and we went inside. As soon as we were inside, he pushed me up against the wall and kissed me while I took off his shirt. Twenty seconds later we were on the hallway floor, having amazing, scare-the-neighbours-loud sex.
All of a sudden, I started paying attention to my drivers - and I liked what I saw. Whimn My next few trips were total busts but then late one night, I ordered an Uber to take me home from work and the driver was just smoking hot, with a ready smile, and was easy to talk to and funny.
We had a minute drive to get to my place, so I had plenty of time for flirting. This guy was much blunter than the last. He smiled at me and asked if I was flirting with him. When I said yes, he asked how far I was planning on taking it. I asked him if he was up for anything and he asked if I wanted to go back to his, mine or if I was keen for something a little more adventurous. He drove down to the local waterfront car park — basically empty at this time of night, but being so close to the water, there were plenty of restaurants close by.
Whimn He turned the ride meter off on his phone, then leaned over, and while kissing me, grabbed a condom from the glovebox and asked if I wanted to take things to the backseat. We moved to the back, and without much fanfare, I climbed onto his lap and went for it. We moved back to the front seat and had a quiet drive home. I was with a group after a night out when we got into an Uber together to ride home.
The driver was not exactly my type, but certainly cute. After we dropped her off, he asked if I wanted to go out for coffee.
