Written with tongue firmly in cheek, Dr. Tom. My response has far more to do with being clear that this is a danger zone. I don’t necessary recommend that folks wear their Nikes to a first date; more so, that their antennae are well-tuned. All too often we lead with our need, as opposed to attending to the cues folks put out. Projection gets in the way, I’ve most certainly done it, and my emotional mind will make excuses for or negotiations around what I see that should tell me that indeed, we’re not right for each other. Thanks for your kind comment.
