How Senses Can Mislead You to Picking that Right Geek!

 MAYBE THE PROBLEM IS YOUR SENSES WOLVERINE!. I hear all the time about someone that says they always choose the wrong person.  They initially get attracted to somebody, but then find out that person didn’t have what they were looking for, i.e. a heart.
