After all our chats, though I've never seen you in person, I've grown a bit fond of you.
In a way we're still strangers to each other though we've had deep and intimate talks, but I do care for you in a way.
I often fantasize about you spending some vacation days with me. Us going to brunch, visiting the tourist traps, having drinks at breweries.
But we are both somewhat promised to other persons, and the temptation to be sexual with one another may be too strong.
In so many words, I think we've both admitted crushes on each other which is wonderful, but may be ultimately moot.
The forbidden fruit is indeed always the sweetest.
