This combination is somewhat functioning. The Man will be able to function as a mentor for the Woman and she will have something good to look up to – if she recognizes higher stages of Chili Heat.
These two are perfectly able to maintain a temporarily mentor/lover/friendship relation which can benefit the woman in particular, if she wants too.
The challenge, is to raise the woman to Stage 5 and 6. A Stage 5 really needs a man who can sweep her off her legs. A Man at Stage 8 can do that if he wants to, but Men at this Stage are extremely rare. She will probabably go for men at Stage 3, 4 or 5 as she can’t tell the difference and they will for sure sweep her off her legs. Since the woman is very rational and the Man is a true Chili Master, she has a great opportunity to rise to higher Stages. She almost just has to decide to do it after that she needs to relax into her feminine sides again and to let go of control. She is extremely lucky having a Stage 8 man at hand!
