Yeah, I think the issue in that case is a lack of honesty with oneself. I find it hard to believe — unless there is significant delusion at work — that such a connection can be misjudged. I think the most likely explanation in a case like that is that one party was ignorant to the situation’s nuances (which signifies a lack of connection and caring). I just don’t see any other way.
