Insane?

I have a friend who sends my random news articles, and today's was very interesting. Here is the quick notes version: Boy sees Girl on NY train. Boy and Girl share eye contact. Girl gets off train. Boy gets off train. Boy can't find Girl in crowd. Boy creates website to find Girl. Girl's friend sees website and replies. Boy and Girl reunite. The end.
Kinda a cute modern romance. I wonder if anyone ever created a website to find me, but since I don't randomly search for "GirlOfMyDreams" websites, (and neither do my friends...that I know of...), we have yet to be reconnected. That's a sad thought. Oh well.
My question is this: Assuming that train rides are usually more than a few seconds, why didn't Boy go talk to Girl? Because if they both got off at the same spot, that would imply that they were on the train for a little while at least, unless Boy is super lazy and rode the bus for only half a mile. In which case Girl should run away now! ...Or jog away, since obviously Boy is not interested in the physical exertion...come to think of it, walking away would probably suffice...
Moral of the story: If you are a Boy, and you see a Girl on a train, you should go talk to her. But if for whatever reason that is not a possibility, set up a website. But make sure that your website includes a sketch of yourself with an arrow pointing to your head, leading from the words "not insane."

I didn't hear of this story, so I'm glad you pointed it out.

Quite interesting.

Oh, our modern times.

I heard this story too. It's very reminiscent of an EXTREMELY cheesy movie starring Lance Bass and Joey Fatone with exactly the same premise.

On The Line!!! I'd forgotten about that movie! :-) Thanks for reminding me--It was a laugh and a half! ...My friend and I were working an a video store, and when we saw that we had to watch it. I might have to watch it again because I can't remember any of the dumb lines...

Yes, it's dumb. But...sucker that I am, I still liked it.
