September came and left. No sign of kyzen8. And then he im'd me saying sorry, he was too busy to give me a call. I got played! Girls always like hard to get, so I must admit that raised my interests a bit. A few weeks later, he said he was visiting Boston yet again. This time, I played it cool but still was hoping he would call. And again, he DID NOT. But he had the nerve to mention that he visited MIT! Now was the perfect opportunity to resolve the "no profile pic" situation. I told him, heck, even if I passed him on the streets I wouldn't have recognized him!
Wow. I was grounded. Here was this sort of dorky looking person, but someone who looks conservative, good, a true family man. A picture really can speak a thousand words. I was definitely interested. From that fine day on November onward, I started chatting with kyzen8 on AIM pretty much everyday, a couple hours a day. He became my online confidant, this fantasy person who I was sort of interested in in a virtual way.
