Love’s promise

Some years ago, I was single and felt comfortable about my status. I had even taken a few trips alone and found them quite enjoyable. So when I made plans to travel again, I was looking forward to the trip. A travel agent told me of a hotel in Barbados that, she claimed, fit my specifications—it was located on a beautiful beach, and there was nightlife nearby, perfect for singles. It appeared to be just right, and so I made the reservation.

However, when I arrived I immediately sensed something was wrong. This was confirmed when a staff member saw that I was alone and made a pitying remark. Next, a woman on the beach warned me not to go out in the evening. Some of the neighborhoods were rough, she explained, and it could be dangerous to be out by myself. Later in the dining room, I noticed that I was the only person sitting alone. This made me feel awkward and uncomfortable.
