A New York love story

For those of us weaned on endless reels of filmy rail-gaadi romances, here is a New York version.

A train, a girl, a boy. Love at first sight. Girl disappears after train journey. Love-sick boy searches all over the city for her. Inspires everyone around to play Cupid. Finds girl. Starry romance. Everyone lives happily ever after. Ends. Right?

Would have been that easy if only life imitated make-believe. And that too, not if you lived in New York, where illusion is king.

When 21-year-old web designer, Patrick Moberg, hosted this site to become a cyber Taj Mahal, little would he have imagined the end.

Life, it seems, always has the last laugh.

Am predicting this would be made into another When Harry Met Sally. Any guesses on who should play Moberg and Hayton?

Johnny Depp and Jessica Alba. Or, why not Leo dicaprio and Charlize Theron. But I will always wager on the younger Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Enna sollreenga?

KK, a penny for your choices. My own money would have been on Heath Ledger (may he rest in peace) and Scarlett Johanson.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston? LOL! whatever would you come up with next?
You are one of those very few men who just cannot stand Jolie? Cheers!

It is woman's nature to cheat and man's nature to be cheated. Poor fellow mistook selfishness for love.
What else can we say? My heartfelt sympathies to him.
