Are you an empath or an intuitive? Are you a healer that uses intuitive skills you have developed and honed over the years? Perhaps you are a Reiki practitioner or use astrology to help guide others. Whatever your healing art, if you use intuition and you are on the internet, you know that cyberspace does not confine intuition.
Are you an introvert? I have a recently been following the tweets and posts of Susan Cain and I looked forward to the release of her book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking before the book came out.

Dear Dr. Romance: I've seen your website and I think you may be the exact person to be able to help me. My wife and I have been married for just about 10 yrs., we have 3 beautiful children, and we live fairly comfortably (money is not too big of an issue).

We are open to any possibility, and naturally possess what I like to call the “yes stance.”

Our relationships are probably the most important aspect of our life. As a relationship expert, I tell people that I specialize in relationship to others and yourself. It's my belief that the two very much go together. Clearly, whether it's concerning yourself or others, there are times when things are difficult, confusing or complicated.
