The days of sitting back and waiting for anything incoming are over.If you want to be noticed and rise to the top, it pays to create the best possible profile and keep it polished and shiny.” Spend your initial time letting him know how you relax and enjoy yourself and how being with you will add positively to both of your lives.You can roll out the “heavy” information as you get to know each other.
