Am I crazy for thinking that….

someone who flies across the country to see you after a month of IMing nearly every night for hours is looking to be friends?

someone who said they want to spend as much time with you as possible while they’re here might like you on a more emotional level?

someone who has a lot of sex with you followed by long conversations about life and each other while snuggling until you fall asleep is just “flirting”?

someone who walks up to you while you’re working on homework to rub your back, kiss your head, and then kiss your lips might have feelings for you?

developing feelings for someone who just spent 4 nights and days sharing your life, being intimate and close, and telling you “you’re doing all the right things” is somehow hard to understand or out of line?

That’s exactly what I’m being told after revealing my feelings, and I’m stunned, appalled, and baffled.  Evidently, there’s no real romantic chemistry between us.  Wow, I guess there’s some other measure for romance in the gay world, but someone forgot to tell me what it was.  Maybe if I would have treated him like shit like the last guy that broke his heart, we would have had more romantic chemistry.
