> why would u want to marry a "5" they are so unavailable,,they are too detached, just curious (im a 4)

I am a 5 with an 8 spouse. we've been married going on 13 years and dated a few years before that. In my oppinion fives and eights can make a strong team. One of the greatest things i like is when we can be alone and together at the same time and nothing is said about it. No undue pressures to interact, just being with eachother and not having to interact is great.

Another point is that she (the 8) pulls me out of my cave to test the waters of the world...in as safe of a manner as she can. And i get her to think about the things she has impulses to do before she does them in order to help her gain a better understanding of the action.

and to answer your saying 5's are so unavailable,,they are too detached, remark... well, in some regards we are. But we are still aproachable too. It is all in the way you look at it. I love talking with people as long as they are having intelligent things to say and not just umm..umm..umm..get to the point...come to me with a topic that you feel strongly about and let's sit down and work it out into a better understanding.
