For example, a random guy in your college class tells you that you're beautiful and makes it clear he wants you, and you brush him off. 5 Years later that random college kid is a wealthy entrepreneur, demonstrates kindness and altruism to the less fortunate, and essentially becomes an awesome person in every aspect of what it means to be human. He approaches you 5 years later, a succesful, happy man, and tells you that you were the most beautiful girl he had ever seen and would do almost anything to win your heart.
Would you let him into your heart, upon witnessing the demonstration of his willpower and drive to win your love? Upon seeing that enen in the 5 elapsed years, he has not forgotten you? That even as a wealthy, attractive, kind, and caring man who could have almost any woman he wants, that he still holds a special place for you in his heart?
