Type my brother. Curious mostly because I find the way he deals with relationships outside of the family baffling.
Workaholic. Often has two jobs though he never needs to. Parties a lot too, drinks heavily when he isnít working and has gone through intermittent periods of cocaine use. He has never let this effect his professional life and has always been very successful in his work.
Never keeps jobs for more than a year. At some point, heíll decide he is too good for a job or that he is simply sick of his co-workers. He will not wait until he has secured another job, he quits on the spot. He is very good at spotting opportunities because he has always found something better after doing this.
Never keeps friends for more than a year either. Will seemingly out of nowhere decide his friends are not having enough of a positive influence on his life. Blows them off without explanation.
Very romantic. Told his girlfriend of 3 years that he loved her on their first date. He believes that love is not something that just happens. You have to make the choice to love someone from the very beginning or it wonít work out. I'm sure he's scared off many girls this way. =p He bought her a rose every time he saw her over the course of their relationship.
He became upset when she went back to school on top of having a job because she wasnít spending enough time with him. Heís the type of person who wants to be with his SO 24/7 when he isnít working. When she went on vacation for two weeks out of state, he made the decision to never talk to her again. When she came home and he wasnít answering her phone calls and was never home when she stopped by his place, she called me worried that harm or something had come to my brother while she was away. Baffled, I called my brother to find out why he wasnít speaking to her. He told me to tell her that he was fine and he would talk to her later. He never did and she eventually got the hint. I asked him why he didnít have the respect to break up with her directly. He said he wasnít sure why he wanted to break up with her and didnít want to do it without a reason. He said he couldnít be bothered to waste one more minute on something that is over with. [what is most confusing is that they had never had a lot of conflict in their relationship and he frequently talked about marrying her.]
Very sentimental. He gave away practically everything in his apartment (furniture, television, artwork) after he blew his girlfriend off because he didnít want any reminders of her.
Is generally good at charming people into doing what he wants but when that won't work, he'll become stubborn and forceful.
Likes to spend big and has to have the latest model of everything. Is by no means rich but knows how to manage his money so he can have everything he wants. He likes to surprise family members with expensive gifts frequently. When he goes out with friends, he pays for everything. He also spends a lot of money on his appearance, is always wearing a suit. Spends a ridiculous amount of money on personal products. I went shopping with him once and he bought 25 dollar shaving cream. I didnít even know shaving cream that expensive existed.
Any ideas? All my family photos are at my parents house, but Iím visiting them tomorrow so Iíll scan one then for VI.
