Answered by Aubrey | Jan. 30, 2018 20:00

It is suggested that you can make full use of your intelligence to invest wisely. Being utilitarian should be avoided. Although you have to make great efforts, profits will compensate. Usually you feel well, but sometimes stomach upset may happen. As a result, a healthy diet is needed. Regular physical examination should be kept, because there may be something wrong with your respiratory system in 2018. In addition, about your love relationship, you will have chances to find a soul mate. Just become patiently.

Female born 5/29/54 and Male born 1/25/56-we had a good friendship in 2016 until November 2016. I think there were people who didn't want to see us together that were interfering way too much. Now we are cordial but nowhere near it was before. Do you see us returning to the former relationship and moving forward to something deeper and maybe a marriage or should I forget it and walk away?
