1. What would you do to leave a great impression with a person on your first date?
Hmm…I think I would listen to them. One of the things I think has really fallen by the wayside, in most aspects of life, is really listening to people.

2. Do you usually follow your heart or your head?
A combination of both, but I probably follow my head more than my heart.

3. If your significant other told you to jump off a tall cliff and told you that you’ll land safely because there’s a net you can’t see yet, would you blindly trust your s.o. and jump?
Unless they’d not been honest about something drastic in the past, I’d trust them and jump.

4. How do you support your significant other?
By listening, talking about things, and being there.

5. What types of things or gestures/acts make you feel loved?
There’s a lot of things – usually they’re the small things that get done, or the words and the looks. There’s also being given the freedom to be myself.

6. What types of things or gestures/acts make you feel respected?
That’s a tougher one. I think having someone genuinely listen to me makes me feel that way, as well as things getting done without me having to ask.

7. Can you have emotional intimacy without physical intimacy? Explain.
Yes, you can. I think emotional intimacy can be even more powerful than physical intimacy, as it involves the head and the heart, and not just the body.

Bonus:  In 2016, what was your most conflicted emotional moment?
That would be when I had to put down my dog right before the 4th of July. I knew it was for the best, as he was miserable, but it was so hard to actually do.

  1. Yikes, putting down a dog is a terribly difficult decision to make – I guess that’s when Q2 comes into play.
