This may sound silly but D takes care of animals and rescues, and I have an affinity for dogs. My whole life, they come up to me and want me to pet them and they trust me. She saw this and I think this helped her to trust me too. We fit together politically, intellectually, economically. Politically we are perfectly aligned. We are talking and having conversations and hugging and all the things normal people do. I like her mind. We have spent time telling each other our life stories, we have similar interests and it is very very comfortable.
