Di forgot to mention that she is passionate about cleaning her house--she is!

I think the Savage Garden song you're thinking about is I knew I loved you before I met you--which does work perfectly for them.

Very cool to read more about you, though most I knew too :-)

More things that attract you to your friends include people who try to lift others up instead of tearing them down. Another thing I've noticed about you is that you are often attracted to someone who is in need of a friend or feeling lonely.

You are the best!
