Geeks, hear me.
When you develop a crush on someone, make sure you are developing that crush on a real person. Not the story of a person you made up in your head. And, when confronted about the fact that the story of a person you’ve created is not real, you need to let go. Not forge ahead with your plans of a relationship, the other person’s feelings be damned because you had a “connection” and “if only they understood”.
Really, you should not be attracted to anyone based on the fact you think they are a Broken Bird, a woman that needs a good man’s love and emotional support to heal her from her deep, emotional wounds.
That’s not love. That’s creepy as fuck.
