Tell me if this has ever happened to you: You meet someone and develop an intense crush on them. You imagine what it would be like to get to know them and touch them. You wonder for months what it will be like when you two are finally alone. The dating gods smile down on you and your crush becomes a real life relationship. Then it all comes undone. The fantasy, that is.
I know a lot of women who have this happen all the time because we can be very premature with our emotions. We set up ridiculously unrealistic expectations and are disappointed when the actual man does not live up to the fantasy man. It is a bad habit to break, certainly, but break it you must! The poor guy can’t be blamed for being a mere mortal.
Have this ever happened to you? Do men get these crushes too and are let down when the women don’t measure up to their fantasy? I have not heard a guy cop to this but I suspect it happens to them too.
Have you ever dated someone who you crushed on a long time beforehand? What did you do when they turned out to be rather boring compared to what you expected?
