At first sight

If you're my friend on Facebook or MySpace, you probably got the memo about the NYGirlOfMyDreams. See, i believe in this little thing called love at first sight, and you can be sure that I was gonna do my part to ensure that boy actually got to meet girl.

I know first hand that the odds of this kind of story having a fairytale ending are slim. But, sometimes, we get a chance to get to know the fantasy. Countless people Facebooked and blogged about the subway sighting, and the NYGirl of his dreams, was found!

I've experienced a similar kind of sighting, and have (strangely enough) had the opportunity (more than once) to meet the boy(s) of my infatuation.

Now, Patrick Moberg gets the chance to fall further into infatuation (love!?!) or dispel the myth. Either way, it's an exhilarating ride, and I wish him the best.

In my experience the hardest part is knowing what to do after you initiate contact. God knows its giving me enough shit at the moment

I would have to agree with you, completely.

If you don't mind my asking, how did it go when you met the boys of your infatuation?

it always seems to unravel like a Paul Simon song without the happy ending.

I had the experience myself.
It lasted 12 years before she realized I was a Beatnik destined to live life "just getting by" (wanting no more then middle mangement) and decided she wanted more.
I would never exchange the whole time for anything in the world though.
It brought the very best of me out and I am trying so hard to be "that guy" again.
As much as I protest I still beleave in Kizmet.

I'd like to take you on a date based on the genius of that Paul Simon comment
