    "Why?" is a question that shouldn't be answered. It complicates things.

    Hey thanks everyone for the great support, I really appreciate it.

    I do love my Sev (in a platonic sense of course), just need to find him a female of similar characteristic.... Probably going to wait until I'm in the States for that, we'll see, depends if I find one here first.

    Thanks again all!
    Blair.
