Hey Steph, Welcome to the brother/sisterhood. I will try and respond to your dating issue. Everyone around me is a firefighter. My husband, my 2 brothers in-law, my step-daughter, me and my father in-law is a retired firefighter. When the tones go off........well lets just say it clears the room fast. I guess its something we feel a drive to do. That's the only way I can explain it. We HAVE to go. It would feel unnatural to NOT go. I would be more than happy to talk more on the subject if your interested. Im sure you have had a lot of opinions on that subject.
