Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is not Deb, it says West Side B.

I don't usually respond to "hi"...it puts the burden of starting
the conversation on me. Start a conversation. I want to know where
your head is, what's sparking the interest and telling me who you

part of dating: tell each other stuff.

work with your hands, that's a super plus. I'm a little gritty and
pretty open minded and it's probably only going to work out if you
are too. Please have a sense of humor... I have a quick wit, you
are going one to need to keep up.
I have a decent emotional vocabulary and we might need to talk
about feelings at some point so have some tools in the emotional
crayon box Sir.
