As an Ontario resident I'm happy that I should no longer see texting while driving (yes it really happens). Something that concerns me even more is the number of drivers I see with their pets sitting on their lap or laying in the back window while they drive. One can remain in control of a vehicle while talking on the phone, but if Fido jumps on your lap from the passenger seat or backseat, it is very easy to lose control.
All pets should be in a kennel or in a caged off area of the vehicle (station wagon, van), otherwise a fine should be immediately issued.
Romantic relationships are built on ATTRACTION. While it is not impossible to build initial attraction without physical contact (online), it is often difficult to maintain attraction without it. Things change chemically in the brain after a passionate kiss, after physical touch, after sex.
Caring, trust, and honesty are great things to have in a relationship, but remove the attraction and what do you have? You've got a friend.
