Having a Crush on Someone You Never Met

Have You Had a Crush on Someone You Never Met?

The documentary Catfish, out Friday, is a modern love story. Under somewhat random circumstances, 20-something Nev befriends a cute girl on Facebook. They get flirty and end up in a long-distance relationship of never-ending phone calls and playful sexts. While his brother and friend film the whole thing, Nev decides to go from NYC to Michigan to meet this Megan. Check out the trailer below.

The crazy twist that follows their courtship has people questioning whether or not it's a real documentary, but the premise is likely enough. Many of us have developed crushes on people we've never met in person. Maybe you flirt with that witty guy who works in your company's office across the country, or have developed a thing for a friend of a friend who shows up in your Facebook feed. Whether or not the attraction remained once you came face to face, I'm wondering: have you ever had feelings for someone you never met?

Yes, but as soon as we met in person, the crush ended. He definitely wasn't what I expected. He kept touching and poking me. I wasn't feeling that, so I kicked him to the curb and never spoke to him after that.

When I was in high school, one of my teachers had us write letters to one of her former students, who was currently serving in Iraq. He wrote back to everyone individually (at least I think he did), and he and I were pen pals for awhile. I never met him after he returned to the U.S., but I always had a fantasy that we'd meet one day and fall in love. My crush was even obvious to my friends, who referred to him as my "future fiancee in Iraq" (don't ask).
