It started off so well, and then it descended into filth.
While there were a few decent ones, in which Simone was told she was varying degrees of 'beautiful', the dirty messages far outweighed the nice ones.
What were his thoughts?
A lot of these opening messages, you'd never say that to someone in a bar. The best messages are the ones that are genuine.
The results are in, and it isn't far-fetched at all: be genuine, and the chances are, you'll meet genuine people.
And if all else fails?
I think we have be know about each other sweetheart. Wanna be drink of wine with me
