I hitch-hiked from central Maine to New Jersey to try to re-catch that spark with a lovely young lady. Her parents were put out, her older sisters were not supportive, and we were given so little privacy over the weekend that any bit of spontaneity and closeness was impossible to recreate. Not a fun lesson, but one that some hearts have to learn.
Why didn't you invited her for a trip to NY or whatever other place , than be forced to support her family companionship which is evocative of a scene from Jane Austen's novels ?
When all odds are against, well, just play everything on a single card :P
