Spartacus699, you are a total dude, but I think you might have entirely failed to take into account some very simple things.
Sure, all things being equal, both parties being honest, one can become comfortable with a person, a relationship. But you can go for years without truly knowing a person, even when you live right there beside them, through the great and the grubby. A house may stand for five years, but may fall in just one night, and most businesses in todays climate take much longer than one little year to establish themselves, and even longer for the brand, the reputation of that business to permeate the local collective awareness.
Nothing worth doing is easy dude. Not a damned thing.
