This dynamic between physical intimacy and emotional intimacy also means you will be leaving the relationship with that much more baggage; and this makes staying friends with your former date or boyfriend that much more complicated. The writing of the books was precipitated by the endemic dating woes on the Harvard campus as I observed them as an advisor and, earlier, indulged in them as a student.When we see dating as simply an opportunity to get to know a person who intrigues you and to learn more about yourself, we tend to place less pressure on the situation.
We operate in a dating scene where “ghosting” is all too common.Every kiss is not a promise, but it helps if the focus earlier on is on intellectual and emotional intimacy.Sometimes you’re at different places in life, or you want different things for the future.Or the mysterious “it” factor of attraction just isn’t there.In terms of general usage, it appears that the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is firmly entrenched as the valuation of choice by the investment community.
Similarly, just because you want different things from life, doesn’t mean the other person's goals are bad.

The book value of a company is the value of a company's assets expressed on the balance sheet.
It is the difference between the balance sheet assets and balance sheet liabilities and is an estimation of the value if it were to be liquidated.
The P/B ratio therefore has its shortcomings but is still widely used as a valuation metric.
