by THE LONER

Meet guy while on tour through Montana.  SO perfect: artistic, smart, hot, funny and single.  Chat a couple of times thru emails and phone calls.  Hang out when I go back to Montana.  Hit it off, asks me to come visit him after I return home.  Pay $500 for a plane ticket, arms are wide open, hopeful.

Hanging out at his pad, make love, cooks for me, clean for him.  Eventually tells me that he doesn’t “want a relationship” and that “you should probably go home”.  Pay $250 to change my ticket, come home early.

Return home heartbroken and about $750 short.

Learned same expensive lesson,

again.
