I began to see a different Darwinian strategy—different babies with different partners. Ha Ha My reality is that i was emotionally unavailable and attracted the same for years…not anymore with the help of Ms Fisher and other experts on the topic of love …soul connection! Their need for order, rules and regulations is not the best basis for spontaneity. The trick is to know when to put forth the right traits for the situation, and when not to put the wrong one out if you put the right one out.
