I met K. online two years ago. For over a year, we interacted online, but we never met in person. She was around 250 miles away. It wasn’t completely impractical to meet, but it was somewhat inconvenient. We kept things platonic, but I let her know that I was attracted to her.
She eventually agreed to meet me, but it never happened. She canceled a few days beforehand. A week after that, she started dating someone local. Three months later she was engaged. She got married two days ago. The sapphire in her engagement ring vanished today. She wants sympathy, but I can’t summon any.
