    AFAIK there is no such thing as a one-way link where you are "connected" to them while at the same time they aren't "connected" to you.

    They may need to check logs to see the connection, but a record of it in some form will be somewhere.

    Why not tell some of the "long story"? There may be a way to do something that will satisfy your goal.

    I thought I remembered reading about a particular rel value that could be used, but I cannot find any info now. However, while searching for "hide referrer" I saw several services that could help you out.

    <a href="example.com" secretlink="yes">link</a>

    works even better than nofollow
