Ever since our first (blind) date, she was always asking me to open up. No matter how well I treated her, she wanted to ‘see the inner me’. She kept saying how she understood my reluctance but she was different. She told me she knew we could have a deeper relationship if I just let her in.
I kept resisting, but eventually she broke me down.
So I opened up. I let her see the real me, without pretence. I told her of my past, my feelings, my dreams. I gave her everything she asked for.
She ran, of course.
