Patrick was smitten the moment he saw her. While this isn’t a tale of love at first sight, it is a story of going to great lengths to meet a girl.
She was gorgeous and he remembered every detail of how she looked. They both stepped onto the same train in a NY subway, and just as he worked up the courage to approach her, the train stopped and a throng of people rushed in. And then she was gone.
He started up NY Girl of my Dreams – a website where he wrote about his encounter with his dream girl, and even drew a cartoon of what she looked like. He pleaded for anyone who knew the girl to put him in contact with her.
His wish was granted. Someone recognized her from his little caricature and emailed him explaining that she was an Aussie magazine intern called Camille, and sent a photo of her to confirm. Bingo! Camille was his dream girl.
