I know she is too "dear" for my posessing and she knows her own merit.
She is always polite with impeccable manners and language. It does not
mean she is standoffish or cold. In fact, she is considerate and even warm
but her warmth never seems to penetrate into my personal mlieu. She gives
me a very clear message "I respect you as a person, as an acquaintance but
not as a man". (June 7, 2002)
