I believe in love at first sight. One of my favorite past times is having deep intellectual discussions. I am extremely creative and probably would have been better suited for the artistic lifestyle in some ways. But business is great fun too and it is a lot more economically stable.
When in a relationship I enjoy: Spending time together. Going out to eat. Making love all Sunday. Watching a good movie. Playing tennis. Connecting mentally.
It is almost impossible to gauge attraction over email. Most of human communication is non verbal. Then add to that pheromones and email seems less than adequate. That being said, the mental and intellectual connection is extremely important to me.
I love dogs and hope to get another one some day.
For the most part I have accomplished what many set out to do. I own a home, I own a business, I have a graduate degree and I have close friends and family.
