> #### My experience has been that 2's and 5's often end up together. I'm not sure if that is because the 2 will persist when other types give up or if the 5 is drawn to the 2 because they do have opposite qualities and the 5 senses that it complements them. Further down the track though, the 5 resents the 2's intrusion and the 2 resents the non responsiveness of the 5 to engage and there is trouble. But that is often the way with relationships - what attracts us ends up driving us apart (thankfully not always).

Speaking as a 5, and also a guy named Jeff...don't do it, she'll drive you crazy. You'll have to bargain for alone time, and you'll be resented for not explaining that you will come back after alone time...every time. Fear of Abandonment issues do not mix well with Need to be Alone issues.

The sex will be good, but she'll eventually drive you insane. But, your mileage may vary.
