The following message was sent to Gloria, who lives in the San Diego area, after someone saw her photographs posted on myspace.com. I think this letter indisputably clears up the question: Is there such a thing as love at first sight? And can it exist via the Internet? Please dispense your indefatigable yearnings to inbox@rochester-citynews.com.
