Now I am in a situation that is quite like the Blair Witch Project. Well sort of like the situation I was in when the Blair Witch Project came out.
Just recently a new blog appeared that seemed to gain popularity really quickly. It is a story of a girl who is in love with her best friend. Sound familiar? I am sure you have heard the story many times. This blog was well written and had me hooked. I LOVED that it was a real person who was able to tell a fantastic story of her love life. I fell in love with it because it reminded me so much of my own tragic love stories. I was hooked. I would check her blog at least six times a day in the hopes of another update in her train wreck love life. Every now and then I would have a sneaking suspicion that maybe someone was just having us all on, but I pushed those thoughts to the back of my mind because I really enjoyed believing it was real.
AND THEN, the author of the blog revealed the truth behind it all. I was so impressed with how well she had me hooked. She took votes on whether she should continue, I voted yes. I was intrigued as to how the story ended. I am not one of those people that became really mad, I was more jealous that she had been able to draw so many people in with her writing!
I still read My Super Hopeless Romance. But it is just like the Blair Witch Project. Now that I know it isn't real, it seems to have lost a lot of its allure and excitement. I will continue reading it, only now it will be without the obsessive lurking that was involved before.
This guy ruined my real life super hopeless romances. I should tell you all about it one day.
