I have a history of making decisions very quickly about women. I have always fallen in love fast and without measuring risks. I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a woman, rather than with the woman himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the woman to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.
