In relationships of any kind, be they platonic, business, or romantic, the absolute most important thing is open and honest communication. If you're not the open and honest type, I'm not interested.

That said, don't waste my time unless you're legitimately interested in the possibility of meeting. So many women on this site flirt, set up a date, then cancel before the date happens and start ignoring you. I don't tolerate games like that. Message me if you want to talk and meet up to get to know one another.
