    Ok say there is a young man who met a girl say at a school they went to together. And this young man has known her for the past three years. And despite not seeing each other they corresponded and even went on a date once but didnt follow up do to busy scheduling.

    And say that this young man (we will call him YM) graduated from said school and is now living where he grew up to attend graduate school and has come to realize that this young lady (whom we will call PW IE Perfect Woman) is amazing and makes him lose his mind with excitement everytime they talk.

    Now here is the problem. PW is across the country in another state, lets say Idaho at the moment. And chances are that since YM has graduated he may never see her again in person. Or if worst comes to worst she will be swept off her feet by another man we will call RM.

    When YM and PW talk they totally flirt and share thoughts and are very open about things. Not to mention PW is a total hottie. IE hotter than most female pop stars. Should YM just consign himself for never having a shot with a girl so far away or should he do something and if so what?

    Finding "the right one" can mean the difference between truly living and merely existing. YM should seriously consider adjusting his plans so that they might make room for PW. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    For me this raises more questions than it does potential resolutions.

    However, if it were me, given the information provided in the hypothetical, I would continue with the phone thing and see where it went. In the meantime, without burning any bridges, I think I would have to test the waters where I was at.

    Based on what you've told us, YM is infatuated with PW. Also, PW's level of attraction to YM is not firmly established as yet.

    I suggest YM attempt to clarify how PW views the relationship. I urge this be done in person, over a long weekend, where YM can arrange a non-pressure yet intimate location for each to develop mutual feelings.

    If such feelings are firmly established, I would urge full mobility for YM to suit his future around PW and grasp true love with both fists.

    YM's feelings must be shared by PW during this "All out assualt" for her heart. If not, I recommend a full retreat from the certain misery that unrequited love bestows.

    I guarantee she will not be the only one to make you feel the way you do, as long as you are willing to let her go. But if you do find a spark with each other then by all means you MUST let the fire burn!

    I'd say stop kicking yourself in the ass for being too chicken to talk to her, buck up, and find a nice young lovely in that potato eating Idaho town you're in.........hypothetically that is. :D

    Agreed.

    If nothing else, it warrants a final visit whatever the cost and find out where everything stands so the chances of success are known.

    YM should hypothetically grab sack and go for it. Otherwise, YM will life a hypothetical life of misery for not having taken the chance at his PW. :D

    Take a trip and test drive the car first. You never know it could be a lemon under the hood and a dog on the road.
