I have a semi-relevant story to this:
Friend of mine was never much of a hit with the ladies. That's an understatement, actually; it was downright painful to watch. He'd get shit faced, like really shit faced, and try and move on the hottest chicks who were so far out of his league it was just embarrassing.
For years not even the slightest hint of any female interest, to the point where it just became a regular part of our lives; watching him crash and burn.
One day he decides to expand his horizons, buys a one-way ticket to Canada and fucks off. I don't hear from him for like a year.
Then he's back with a spring in his step! Going travelling was the best thing ever for him; he was confident, happier; he'd really come into is own. The crazy thing was - he'd gotten laid! It was hard to believe at first, but he wasn't just getting ruined and hitting on the out-of-his-league chicks anymore. It was a newfound confidence that could only have come from his putting his penis in something human, but as the months went on his lack of game started to return, so he did the only thing he could - booked another plane ticket, this time to Australia.
It all seemed fair enough, until he let slip that the chick he'd gotten with in Canada just so happened to be going to Australia at the same time as him. Now, I'm not saying he went to Oz purely because the one human being seemingly willing to have sex with him was there, but we all kind of knew it (without anyone ever actually saying it).
So off he goes to the land down under, whereupon he meets his lady love. She's been travelling around Australia...
...with her boyfriend. A fact she'd neglected to mention when she'd told him she'd be there.
So he got to be the spare prick travelling around Oz with this girl and her man. Weird thing is he did it for months before going his own way.
Ok, so maybe not the most relevant story, but it sure tickles the hell out of me!
