You asked me a question that has no answer. I was surprised by it, perhaps you could tell by the look on my face. You did, after all, rather catch me off guard.

Concerning matters of the heart ... Is it safe for me to entertain an emotional attachment? Is it fair?
No, the question should be ...
"What do you want?"
