The geek stayed for just over three months, before moving on to someone with more cash to flash a week before Christmas. At first LL was devastated, feeling the loss so keenly, but gradually she pulled herself together, finding that writing about her experiences helped. Although she still held deep feelings for the geek she knew it was not to be and she became ready to move on.
LL decided to go looking for the man that the geek said that he was and after a couple of false starts, she did it. LL met the man of her dreams. He was all that the geek had said he would be and even more. LL was no longer lonely.
