This reminds me of that episode of How I Met Your Mother where Ted dates a girl and they go to dinner and she's like "We should get married? Just kidding! Or am I? Maybe we should get married... just kidding!"Either way, I bet this guy is actually struggling with his feelings, so while I believe he needs to have The Talk with the girl, it should be more about them finding out if they both like each other. Here's how I would start this conversation: "Crazy how everyone believes this stuff eh? You know though, part of me is starting to believe it myself..."As someone who has seen the good and bad of internet dating, I would definitely agree he has to make the call and see it through, and if they find they really enjoy each other's company, why not make a go of it? You only live life once, and finding someone that you connect with on a deep level is so very rare, you owe it to yourself and to the other person to at least give it a shot.Good luck Possibly in Love/Trouble

I cant up-vote this one enough! Do this! Use this phrasing!

Just don't let her find out WHERE you got the phrase from! Who knows, she might end up swooning for the pyro hot enough to melt her off her feet! I've seen it happen before, well... in a play, but still!

I have to recommend against using the phrasing. As funny as it is, it's a) too cliche to really take seriously and, most importantly, b) places focus on the fake relationship and how you fooled everyone, when you really want to it to be on the feelings you actually have. Just go with the truth.If you can do this face to face, do so, but at the very least call her.If distance is the issue.. Total Biscuit lives in England. His wife lives in America. They seem to pull it off, somehow. It sounds like you're on the same land mass, so you can probably work something out. Travel might be a pita, but it'll be worth it.

Calaana has a good point, and also one I disagree with... I'm not recommending that Possibly use exactly my words, but rather the idea of what I'm saying. That exact phrasing would work for ME because I know myself - yeah it may sound corny to some, or it may sound amazing to someone else, but I've learned a lot about who I am in my lifetime, and I know how to say things that are genuine to who I am based on the situation. As far as placing the focus on the fake relationship, it's an icebreaker, a segue-way. You're not focusing on it, you're remarking about how it's kind of weird/strange/funny, and then segueing into what you really want to talk about. Ease into those waters, so to speak.
