Many a crush has developed on nothing more than a telephone persona, usually from people at work needing to talk with another person at some distance, in the course of business.

Can you imagine the shocks (almost invariably on the downside) when eventually people meet and what expectations of attractiveness they had painted in their minds is not met in the flesh !
