Quoted

“We were falling into the exciting tingle of fake intimacy through email, where a few personal overshares, blended with a sprinkling of coy, overly specific compliments, mimic the sensation of falling in love (when in fact usually you are only falling in love with yourself and your ability to write a really top-notch flirty email).”

This is from Jessi Klein’s book You’ll Grow Out of It and it is a nugget of truth. The whole book is pretty good. You should read it.
