What do I even mean by that, genuine? I suppose I mean if it was authentic, sincere, whether he was fully present in the moment with me. How many of those previous occasions when I thought I felt a mutual connection was I actually not alone in them?

What do I even care? I have rationalised this. I was in love with the idea, not the person. I wanted the fantasy, not the reality.

And yet, this hurts like hell.
