Q. Are you settling for less than what you are worth and capable of?
A. Yes, often. It’s easier & I can be as lethargic as the next person, on various occasions.
Q. What is your biggest struggle in life?
A. Consistency, in seeing & acting on a “Life Plan”
Q. What kind of things do you do if any to keep your relationship alive?
A. Put effort into developing communication; Laugh, joke & make my partner feel special; Do things for my partner: Breakfast in bed, make dinner, shoulder-neck-head & foot rubs… Keep her happy sexually… Make her feel special occasionally, engage in PDA’s when we are out together; but give her, her time, to socialise with her friends without me being present.
Q. If someone disagrees with you, how do you deal with it?
A. If they have a genuine reason for disagreeing with a “position or statement” I have made, then I would endeavour to engage in dialogue to see the other person’s point of view. This may help my learning & see if the other “someone” has information worth adopting or whether the other someone is in need of more information to see the “position or statement” I had made, in a better light or different perspective. On the other hand, sometimes it’s just better to agree to disagree & not engage the other “someone” & each situation is different.
Q. When things don’t go the way you want them to go, how do you handle the disappointment?
A. This depends on the situation, the level of emotional attachment to what has happened & “what” if anything I could do? Usually I would attempt to “fix” the situation, if possible; I would attempt to learn from it & ponder what I could do better or; if I can’t do anything about the situation, then I would attempt to “move on.”
Q. What does the word fear mean to you and what are you most fearful of, if anything?
A. Fear for me is the probability of pain & loss; physically, financially, emotionally… Fear is a natural human/mammalian response, to the unknown, uncontrollable &/or sudden events that could mean catastrophe of varying things or situations.
Q. If your partner could ask you to stop doing one thing to make them happier, what do you think that would be?

Q. If your partner could ask you to start doing one thing to make them happier, what do you think that would be?
A. Grant her three wishes everyday…
Q. If the whole world was listening to you right now, what is the most important message or piece of advice you would like to give them?
A. “The more you learn, the more you realise, how little you know;” Therefore, begin researching important issues & begin “thinking” of how to make things better, with the information you gain. Only a knowledgeable & thoughtful person can make their own situation or the situation of others, better, than they currently are, so start now & don’t stop “learning& Thinking!”
Q. What is the biggest thing that holds you back from achieving your dreams?
A. Having Direction!
