9. When do you think a person is ready for marriage?
Probably when they start collecting a menagerie of animals, LOL.  Seriously, it is up to the individual/couple in question.  Sometimes, being in love and in lust are temporary things; eventually, the relationship is sustained by other things, such as the willingness to work together, compromises, companionship.  To me, that starts to sound like marriage - others feel that they are happy as they are without the certificate.  Certainly members of my own family have had the same partners for nearly two decades and are just as legitimate as my own marriage.  25 years next year - how did we ever get that old? :-)

8) How do you feel about sharing your password with your partner?
I have no problem whatsoever.  He has the password to my section of the computer and a list of passwords to every online account that I have, including LJ and FB.  I have nothing to hide.

7. Are you more into looks or brains?
Physical attraction is important, but so subjective.  One person's Dish Delish is anothers Poisoned Pan Au Chocolat.  However, if a person is clever, good with words and has a certain charm, that makes them far, far  more interesting that someone who looks like they had walked out of a film studio, or a cover of a magazine.  Guys who would not be seen as instantly attractive tend to ratchet up their chemistry, if they have a good grasp of the English language and intellectual standing. Sapiosexual? You bet I am!

6 What is a relationship deal breaker for you?
Top of my list is infidelity, followed by continual lying.  If the trust isn't there, then love don't live here anymore.

5. Is what you’re doing now what you always wanted to do growing up?
It is about a million miles away from what I wanted to do.  I am a creative soul, heavily into writing and art.  I am packing photos in a factory, ffs.  Bills come first and whereas being a starving artist stuck in a frozen garret has some kind of romantic aspect to it, the reality is, that the bills come first and anything after thant is a bonus - time and sanity included in that bonus.  I am a variation of the above worded picture.  Supplement the words 'cat' with 'dog' and 'chocolate' for 'wine' and this is basically me.

4. What was the best phase/worst phase in your life?
Worst would have to be in two phases - 13-19 years old and from 25-35.  Damage was caused to me in the former and the repercussions of this were felt from my mid 20s to mid 30s.  My best phase has definitely been in my late thirties onwards.  It is hard to undo self-destructive habits, but with miles on the clock and a certain amount of retrospection, I have ironed out a lot of problems.  I would like to think that emotionally, mentally and spiritually, I am a late bloomer :-)

Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?
Introvert.  Some of it is shyness, but a lot of it is about wanting to have time alone to process thoughts. It depends who I am with, though.  I can be life and soul of the party, if it is a laid-back affair with no expectations.  Networking is hell in my eyes; my idea of a good night is to hibernate with an audiobook and a hotwater bottle.  Boring, I know :-D

2 Are you religious or spiritual?
I think you can be both.  Most people of faith would say that you can't have one without the other.  I am aware that quite a few people consider their faith as part of their culture, but when questioned more deeply, some will admit that it's because it is what they have always done and feel lost without it.  "No one truly knows for sure, do they? We can only live in hope" etc.  I know there are others who have found their faith late in life and derive huge comfort from their belief becoming a cast-iron certainty.

Personally, I veer towards being more spiritually-lead with a very open mind.  I am consciously aware that I am a product of my culture and therefore subscribe to the laws of the land, laws of which have been largely based on the Ten Commandments, using the Bible as a guideline.  However, I tend to follow a more teleological approach that an absolutist deontological and head towards following moral codes and in my best capacity, do no harm to others or myself in the process.
