I can at least assure you that I will respect your opinions, even if I disagree. I come from a family of very strong women, so I'm used to not being right all the time. :) I don't get flirty unless I've gotten to know someone through at least several text conversations first.. and even then, it's pretty pg-13 until I've been in a relationship with someone for a while.
I want to get to know -you- first; I want to be attracted to your brain before we talk about anything else. If all else fails and there's no romantic chemistry, I'm happy to hang out or chat as a friend; I know it can get lonely out there, and we're all in this together.
P.S. - I have a dog and a cat. Hopefully you aren't allergic, but do let me know if we ever meet and I'll make sure that no allergens are present (as best that I can... my kitty is kinda attention-needy and a man can only be so strong in the face of sad kitty.)
