Personal opinion

Edward Truhmenev:

– Frankly, I'm a nerd. So treat this type of man well. Don't know how in family life, but in the actor's attention to detail, introspective, meticulous is a big help. In General, ideal for a family Union I think a state when two people without words understand each other. But this Golden mean in the relations difficult to achieve. This is the ideal.
