Interesting comments, Lia. Perhaps you are onto something as you have to be a very confident man to pair up with a woman smarter than you.

As for your comment re: the email I sent to the man when I was 20 years old, you're right. I wouldn't do that now. I recognize that it was impulsive and aggressive but you know what? Many 20 year olds aren't that mature. Perhaps you were, but I certainly wasn't.

In any event, I don't regret sending the email because it showed me that he withered under pressure.
