How do you screen for reliability and filter out self-centered/selfish nature in dating in real life and online dating? And, how do you find out whether a person (for dating or friendship) is a 'giver' or a 'taker'? By reliability and being a giver, I don't mean something as trivial as calling when they say they will. I mean more like being there for you when you are going through one or more major challenging life events, putting the relationship and "us" before individual interests especially when the going gets rough for you and not for them individually. Does this kind of reliability even exist among partners and can one really, truly, deeply trust another human being or do you feel you always have to watch your back even with a partner of months or years or decades?

I own 5 % of an S coporation... Two other people own the rest plus from my understanding there is a certian percentage left open for future partners / growth .. etc. One of the owners is in the hospital and may be out of the picture for quite some time (possibly even years).. his mother the other owner is meeting with the account next week to talk about changing the status from a coporation to a single owner.. to save costs while hes away and to move the business (an e commerce site) to a someone "inactive but cutting even" situation. They want me to continue to do the web work which is why I own 5 % to begin with... but want to just "pay me" -- What is the process involved with this and can they change the company on such a fundamental level like that?

What's a "normal" number of previous sexual partners to have had? Or, more to the point, if I can count mine on one hand with some leftover fingers, does it make any sense to be a little freaked out by dating someone who can't put an exact number on his?
