* That's not a question I'd ever ask myself. "Lover" is just a label. The questions I ask myself about relationships are, in order:
1) Do I like to be around her?
2) Do I like to be intimate with her?
3) Would I like to live with her?
For each question, allow some weeks to months for reflection. It may be long, but you will get a quality decision :-)*

Same here, I ask myself the same questions. 5s especially with the romantic 4 wing will look so far - even beyond marriage before deciding to have any intimate relationship with anyone.

Physical attraction alone is not enough basis for intimacy for the 5. In short, love at first sight is a phrase that is most unapplicable to the 5.

There is much need for mental attraction: is she intelligent enough? Is she resourceful? Is she competent? Is she independent?
