Hello... Blunt is best:
If you're contacting me for the first time- Do Not say something to the effect of "Hey baby- text/call me" - and then your number. And the fish themed pick up lines? ("reel me in", "bait your hook", "cast your line over here")... NO.
A simple "Hello, how are you?" Or a question about my profile is a much better approach.
Please don't call me "hun" or "sweetie" if we have just begun to chat. I have been told it's "just a term of endearment", etc. but trust me... it's a turn off.
If you don't spell well, that's fine- but bite the bullet and use spellcheck. Evidently there are many fish out there that I could seriously beat in a scrabble game. ;).
I have had a few guys accuse me of being harsh because I lay this all out. I'm sincerely sorry if I've offended you but clearly, we are not a match then and you should skip to the next profile.
I just prefer the "no bs approach". In my mind it just makes things simpler.
So okay... now that that's out of the way here's a little about me: I enjoy running, going to the lake, and live music. I also enjoy golf... But my game isn't pretty (ha) I love the Green Bay Packers. It's rough being a Cheesehead in Cowboy country!
I am a counselor in private practice and would probably do my job for free if I won the lotto.
I am looking for a good friend first. To do things with and/or swap stories about the day. I love to laugh and appreciate quick wit and banter. If you like what you've read then say hello. Maybe you'll be glad you did.
A good first date might be dinner, a hike, or the driving range if you don't laugh at my swing! :). Just not the movies or some setting where we can't talk. That's silly, right?!
