I think physical chemistry is very important. Maybe some people can be friends and see the chemistry kick in later, but that doesn't work for me.

And finally I think I place a really high importance on the idea of equality. I'm not talking about rights, but really the idea that there is equal strength of character and drive.
- I sing opera - I'm a baritone.
- I play metal/blues-rock guitar the rest of the time.
Ah and I'm 1m74 tall so that's in fact more than 5'8" but not 5'9". I recently discovered there is quite a gap between 5'8" and 5'9". Mysteries of the Imperial system.
