As the J Geils Band said “Love Stinks” and sometimes it can cost you the potential for a lot of money.
There was a post recently on Steemit by user “Store” in which he details how he lost 2,000 Bitcoins and the potential for $1.8 million at the peak of Bitcoin’s run. I know who Store is in the domaining community, and if he wants to leave a comment here that’s great, but I will not reveal his name.

By 2012 we were long broken up, and that BTC installation was long forgotten.
