I love to write. It's almost all I do, besides play with my baby sister and eat :P

For a couple of years, I've tried to write one in particular, starting with a girl in a cafe, who loves to draw (blah, I based her on me) and a guy (with long hair and glasses) comes up to her and randomly starts talking. The get along great and talk often. I can never seem to finish it, though. Also, he's usually in his early twenties, and she's 15. (It's just a story, don't flip :3)

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I was sitting in the cafe of a books a million with my older sister. She ended up walking away (since all I wanted to do was read) and a guy- with long hair and glasses- sat down at my table and started talking to me.
We really hit it off, that is, until I found out he was 20. And I'm 15. He looked younger and apparently I looked 18 (a lot of people say so, probably because I don't dress like a teenager :PPP) and, well, since he was VERY obviously flirting, I told him that I was too young for him. He said that's okay, and gave me his number. We ended up texting for about 3 days straight, about nothing and everything, all day every day. I really, really liked him, and we had a connection, blah blah blah.

Around the point in the story where I'd stop writing because I'm stuck (about a week into the story, the same time that we'd slowed down the texting), he stopped texting me completely. Like, just cold-turky. Like I'd stop writing, cold-turky.

I have no interest in continuing the story, nor talking to him, but that seems like a very odd coincidense. Just thought I'd share, and get opinions. What do you guys think?

Maybe you should write about a guy on the internet called everlearning who won the euromillions :)
it Is freaky that you wrote those things and they came true. Girls who were my friends when i was 15, dated older guys and they seem cool but its not untill you get to his age and realise that its actually pretty messed up to date some one that much younger than you. Im sure your a lovely woman and i know you will follow your own heart but i just thought id say cus most of the girls i know who went out with oldermen, the relationships ended badly as they realised these men were immature and that was the reason they didnt go out with girls there own age.

xD Right. It was just a coincidence, I think :3
Or else, I'd be out hunting vampires because I used to write those kinds of stories too xD

The reason I'm fine with no longer contacting him is because HE was fine with sneaking out to meet me, alone at the mall (which I didn't do). ^_^ He's a total creeper, and to be honest that's basically the same way the guy in my story way. Things seem MUCH more romantic on paper >_>

if everything u are writing comes true and u think tat hes bothering u just write 'and one day he mysteriously disappeared off the face of the earth'. or if u like him then write 'and we happily got married' imo i think its just coincidence.

Yep. I wonder what would've happened if I'd finished the story. Considering my plan was to have the parents DIE and her sent to a mental-institute (by her grandparents, and yes, I was a VERY freaky person when I wrote that sotry xDD) I'm very glad I did not.

Probably a coincidence, but still it reminds me of automatism... like you zone out and delve into your subconscious, and express that in your story. The ages could be a coincidence, but you could have subconsciously "predicted" your future. (Inventing the future is the easiest way to predict it...)

I'm pretty sure it was a coincidence, haha. It's pretty neat though. Although, if I think about it, a lot of my stories that I never finished can relate to things happening recently. Not as much as this one, but somehwat. :P

This reminds me of something.  I had a boyfriend a looong time ago who liked to sketch. He was pretty good at it too. One day my friend and I were at his place going through his sketch books and  my friend noticed a picture of a girl who looked so much like me.  He had done the sketch almost a year before we even met,  so either it was a subconscious prediction or coincedence, who knows. That or I guess there's a possibility he could have been stalker material...:lol:

That's awesome! :) If he's really talented with drawing, maybe that's why. (So he can predict the future-ness xD)
Maybe everyone's artistic talents secretely mean something special, and like... Mona Lisa is going to take over the world one day? O-o
