She really is very dog like. In “Star Trek”, Captain Kirk would travel to new star systems and meet independently evolved women who were more human compatible than this person who evolved on my home planet.
She's also smart, nice, brave, and accepts me the way I am. Even if things don't go past a certain point physically, she's still someone I'd want to spend my life with and help raise her kids.
Captain Kirk never had these problems. On the other hand, Captain Kirk never got this lucky.
