I've been playing 960 CC against this opponent who loves attacking. In fact he loves it so much that as soon as he has a coupla pieces out (often the queen) he's already attacking right, left and centre.
Established chess principles teach us not to attack before development is complete (different from developing with a threat, which is the ideal). The following miniature is a classic example of what happens when these prinicples are ignored.
After 12.Nxf4, black hasn't a single piece in play while I (white) has an active threat on the g-pawn (and by extension, the rook), and can seize an semi-open file with a threat. White's king, while centred, is well protected but black's is still stuck forlornly on e8.
Maybe he simply got overconfident and thought you were going to drop your queen again.
Wow, very nice game.
