  •  Believe it or not... (5+ / 0-)

    I don't have such a hard time imagining that a young person (especially one from a tight-knit ethnic community and background that's distant in space and culture from "mainstream" US culture) could fall in love with someone they've not met in person and call that person "the love of [their] life".

    Remember folks of his generation consider social media to be the equivalent of "real life" in some ways, and in other cultures and communities, young people still often marry someone without spending a great deal of time together.  Plus young people are often prone to understanding any feelings of intimacy or connection with a person they are attracted to as deep love.  So that part is less hinky to me, I could see that happening.

    The multiple tragedies happening to one person and him not catching on...that part is a little harder to swallow.  Unless he really is the greatest rube to walk the earth since Gomer Pyle.

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
