I want a woman who is as kind and honest as she is funny and laid back. You learn more about someone in 5 minutes meeting them face to face than you can messaging back and forth for months, so take a leap of faith and meet me for an ice breaker somewhere public. If there is chemistry between us, then I will definitely take you on a real date after that and do my best to sweep you off your feet.
I keep my intro messages short because experience has shown me that it doesn't really matter what I say. If you're interested, you're interested. No matter how long or short my message is, you're reading my profile, and I read yours. I messaged you because I liked what I saw and want to learn more. If you feel the same, message me back and we can take it from there. I'm not going to woo you if you don't show any interest. That just makes me look creepy.
Likewise, if you're not interested there's no need to ignore me. A simple "no thank you" will do. I'm a genuinely kind person and I won't get nasty if you turn me down.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's keep it simple, it's the the first time we are meeting. Let's meet for coffee or drinks and see if there are any sparks.
Take a chance on me. I won't disappoint you.
