Not the Girl of His Dreams?

I'm sure some of you remember the story about the guy who saw the girl of his dreams on a subway, but lost her in the crowd... so he did what anyone else would do... he turned to the Internet to find her. Illustrator Patrick Moberg drew a little sketch of his dreamgirl and posted it on www.nygirlofmydreams.com.

In some kind of crazy fairytale/romantic comedy twist of fate, he actually found her (Camille Hayton) and they dated. However, they stopped updating the website and sharing information with the media, so we could "make up our own ending".

Well, sadly enough, I guess not every fairytale has a happy ending... The couple has finally confirmed that they are no longer together.

Hayton told Australian newspaper The Sunday Telegraph that she dated Moberg for about two months but it just didn't work out.

"I say we dated for a while but now we're just friends," Hayton, now 23, told the newspaper. "It's really nice that people embraced the story. It is part of my life now."

Hayton said she is still recognized about three times a week on the streets of Manhattan as "that girl"' and the question is always the same: "So what happened?"

"I think the situation was so intense that it bonded us," she said, adding it "bonded us in a way that you could mistake, I guess, for being more romantic than it was. I don't know. But I wanted to give it a go so I didn't wonder what if, what if?"

So what are we - both cynics and romantics - supposed to take away from this? The public really wanted this couple to work out, because it was so romantic. But is a brief subway encounter and a web campaign really anything to base a relationship on? It's sweet, but unrealistic. I don't really believe in love at first sight, as much as I'd like to. Life isn't a fairytale... if you see someone you think you might like, go talk to them. You can't force a relationship by creating a false sense of 'it was fate'. But at the same time... what woman doesn't secretly wish someone would feel so strongly about her?

All we can really say is that this 'love story' was rather similar to the plot from the movie On The Line. If Lance Bass can bless a relationship and it still doesn't work out, I don't know what hope the rest of us have.

hahaha ok i never saw that lance bass movie, but i do remember hearing about it. i don't know, it seems pretty lucky that it didn't work out....i would never in my wildest fantasies want a lance bass movie to make the transition to reality.

and as much as i would love to be flattered like this subway girl, i would have to say ultimately the whole campaign would be a turnoff. i like to think of myself as a romantic, but if a guy is that nice to me then i won't have any reason to be a bitch to him....so i can see why it wouldn't work out.

wasn't he supposed to be sent off to space?
