This actually happened quite recently. Only three months before I started my blog in fact.
I met a woman on facebook and we started chatting. It wasn’t long before we discovered we had loads in common, and shortly after, we met near my house for a drink.
Then she went on sort of a pilgrimage across the country and wound up in
Anyway, I booked a cheap flight on a whim and flew to
She met with me once, but then when I wanted to see her again while I was there, she got suspicious, so I told her I maybe did have a bit of a crush on her.
She completely freaked out. She told me I could’ve saved both of us a lot of time and trouble if I’d spoken up sooner, and that she wanted nothing to do with me whatsoever. Then I cam home and sort of forgot about it, but I do still think it was a stupid idea, and at the time, I do realize I probably scared the crap out of her.
Anyway, not surprisingly, she and I don’t really talk anymore, though at one point since, we did exchange apologies for our behavior.
