I don't mean that you should breach codes of practice but if you are waiting for it to be romantic or beautiful ... You've got a mop in one hand in a bucket of vomit, a greasy rag in the other, the person you're attracted to has plastic cords running out if their arms and out of certain orifices, but if it feels like the right place to you ...
