Tough question. There are times I thought I was in love, but it was infatuation. The first time I was head-over-heels gone for a woman (Elaine) comes to mind. I would have called that love then, but looking back on it now, it's more of a "what was I thinking" feeling.
There was Sanna. I don't think that was love, even then, but it was a good friendship and a lot of physical affection. It was still pretty good.
My ex-wife (Dawn) would probably be #2. I think that must have been love, at least at one time. It's hard to remember now.
Barb would be #3. And it's different. More solid, less exciting. Then again, it's lasted for well over ten years.
2. What was/is so great about the person you love(d) the most?
Hard to say. All of them have been different. Elaine could turn me on like a light switch. Sanna was close and a good friend. Dawn was beautiful and made me extremely happy. Barb is solid and intelligent and funny and laughs at my stupid jokes.
3. What qualities should a significant other have?
Some shared interests, as well as different interests. Intelligence. The ability to communicate. Patience. Forgiveness. Trust.
4. Have you ever broken someone's heart?
I don't think so. I treated a couple of women badly when I was younger, but we were hardly in any kind of relationship. I've been treated badly in return (like being the butt of a very sick practical joke), but heartbreak is a different thing.
5. If there was one thing you could teach people about love, what would it be?
Cripes, like there's anything I know about love? Maybe that love and sex are not the same thing, that they are vastly different.

Rob, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant with a balanced preference for auditory and visual inputs. Because of your "centrist" tendencies, the distinctions between various types of brain usage are somewhat blurred.
Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor, unless it requires total spontaneity and ability to improvise, your weaker traits (Totally off the mark). However, you are far from rigid or overcontrolled. You possess a degree of individuality, perceptiveness, and trust in your intuition to function at much more sophisticated levels than most.
Having given sufficient attention to detail, you can readily perceive the larger aspects and implications of a situation or of learning. You are functional and practical, but can blend abstraction and theory into your framework readily. (dead on.)
The equivalence of your auditory and visual learning orientation gives you two equally effective sensory input systems, each with distinctive features. You can process both unidimensionally and multidimen- sionally with equal facility (yeppers). When needed, you sequence material while at other times you "intake it all" and store it for processing later.
Your natural ability to use your senses is also synthesized in your way of learning. You can be reflective in your approach, absorbing material in a non-aggressive manner, and at other times voracious in seeking out stimulation and experience.
Overall you tend to be somewhat more critical of yourself than is necessary (ding ding ding!) and avoid enjoying life too much because of a sense of duty. You feel somewhat constrained and tend to sometimes restrict your expressiveness. (hardly!) In any given situation, you will opt for the rational, and learning of almost any type should be easy for you. You might need certain ideas explained to you in order to fit them into your scheme of things, but you're at least open to that!
Cor blimey, I taste like Tea.
I am a subtle flavour, quiet and polite, gentle, almost ambient. My presence in crowds will often go unnoticed. Best not to spill me on your clothes though, I can leave a nasty stain. What Flavour Are You?
